Post Quick Floor Jack!!

I have a Kwik Lift in my garage. You drive your car up the ramps and then jack up rear, fold down legs and you car is 20 inches off floor. I am looking for a jack that goes from 5 inches to 20 inches that doesn't require 50 pumps. Anyone seen a good floor jack lately?? THANKS DAVE

I bought one of those jacks for the shop. I am very happy with it. The pad is nice and low so it fits easily under low cars, doesnt require a whole lot of pumps to raise it all the way up.

I own an upholstery shop, so it doesnt get used very much, so it should last me a long time. Seems like it would be pretty durable and long lasting though.

What about those bumper jacks that gas stations use that run off of air. Roll them underneath the back and hit the switch?

The jack in the Harbor Freight site listed under the 179.95 one at 249 or something is what you need. Just a little extra bucks for the extra lift! Put a 1x4 in the pad!

Dave,

K-Lift sells a good jack to go along with the lift. I think mine was $200-$225 - can't remember for sure. If you twist Danny's arm he might knock off the shipping cost since you already bought the lift from him.
