Default Harbor Freight 2.5 ton low profile jack

What's up DSO? I just recently bought this Pittsburgh jack through harbor freight for my engine swap, it was only $90 with a coupon. I brought it home, got it out of the box and immediately put it to work. I have complete faith in this jack lifting my car. The jack itself weighs 75 pounds and goes from 2.5 inches to 20 inches high. It has the "rapid pump" system so it goes from full rest to maxed out in 5 pumps. I definitely recommend getting this jack. All the powder coating on the jack is well done, and all the hardware was tight right out of the box, I used this jack to lift the car up to pull the engine out from under it. It even has the little port so you can add hydraulic fluid whenever it needs to be serviced.

I got an older version of the HF 2.5 ton low profile jack. Bought around 4 years ago. Single piston but I have abused the hell out of that thing. The frame is bent a little on mine but still works like a champ, I am just extra careful when using it these days. I plan to replace it though. Good pickup!

I also bought mine about 4 years ago and it still works flawlessly! Plan on getting the 3 ton rapid pump for the heavier vehicles that I take care of.

The racing jack is really only for jacking up the car at the track to swap wheels.

This jack on the other hand, is way too heavy for that type of shit. Looks pretty decent for the cash!

^^^ you can still have it replaced, just ask them to let you buy a warranty for it...
they should just charge you $20 or whatever the two year warranty cost is...

I've never had good luck in terms of longevity with lightweight aluminum jacks in general. My steel low profile HF jack (the orange one 4door pictured) has served me extremely well over the last 3 years or so.

That thing is a freaking steal at that price, plus a lot of great reviews over at garagejournal.

Just bought the blue aluminum one pictured (smaller of the 2 1.5 ton HF jacks) and LOVE it. Got it for $65 on sale. It's the only jack I can slide under my car without issue. (one-half-finger gap in front, two in back)

I have the arcan from costco and its the same exact jack as this. I would not be surprised if these two are just re-labed from the same company
