HF 3-Ton Coupon

3-Ton Floor Jack $80

In case anybody is interested.

Irelands child 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.

matt167 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

silentpoet 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?

JohnnyK81 I have an aluminum jack that I bought here in Canada, and it's identical to the one HF sells.. Great jack, actually!

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.

Sure wish Costco still had some in stock. People really seem to like that Arcan jack, and for the price it's hard to beat.
are they just temporarily out of stock?

$99 for xl35r is a great bargan imo.

i might buy another for that price next time i'm shopping w/ a costco member.
