HF 3-Ton Coupon
3-Ton Floor Jack $80
In case anybody is interested.

I too have a fairly new 3T HF jack. It's a Chevy in comparison to the old Blackhawks which are a Caddy. It works, it's heavy and so far reliable. I believe I paid in the neighborhood of $80 bucks for it last summer. You do have to be gentle when you let it down as it can release very quickly - and the site reviews do say that. This replaces a Crapsman 2.5T trolley jack that has been sent off to a better place to become rebar and angle iron.

HF jacks will hold, but they shouldn't ever be supporting weight as any jack should not.. I always raise the vehicle, place jack stands, lower it down on the jack stands, and then raise the jack back up to meet the frame, but not lift..
HF jacks are a great value. my 3 ton was $69 on sale. now 3 years old with no issues.. The cylinders are not chromed so they need to be taken care of or they will rust and that will damage the seals. But taken care of. for home type use, they are perfect

I don't trust any jack to hold. The jack's job is to lift the car up so the jack stands can get under there.
That being said both my floor jacks came from wally world. They lift my 68 caddy high enough. I don't recall the price on either, but it has been a few years on them. Maybe 6 or 7 years.

Just make sure you use the jack stands with the HF one, it will lift BUT will it hold?

Hf 4 $50
I bought a 3 ton yesterday at HF. It was the one with the pad that you can turn to adjust up. they are going to quit stocking that model so it was half price. I have an old blackhawk 5 ton that needs rebuilt. The new Hf jacks are cheaper than a rebuild kit.

|adamsautoadvice||I think the best option if to wait for a sale or coupon for a HF jack. I'd rather not go there either, but for home use it's hard to justify spending a lot.|
