I thought being a nsfw jackass was grounds for banning? It'd be nice to see bluetool finally go away

If it was me I would get the 2 ton. The one you are looking at did not lift high enough for anything that I did. I bought this one 4 or 5 years ago maybe more and have had no issues so far. I try not to use it every day in the barn and watch who is using it as some people just abuse things. It was great when we were changing tires every weekend at mud runs. It is more expensive but with 20% off that should help. Also there are 25% off coupons out there some where.

Agreed. These things are awesome. Simple, safe, compact, and will lift very high.

I have a steel 2.5 ton HF jack and it works great! No experience with the aluminum ones.

My dad has one of the ones posted, but it is about 10 years old or so from when HF first came to Flint. Still works and I still use it, you can tell its not the best quality but it has never failed.

Yeah, lifting a saturn. He's Indian/Thai so he was probably using it wrong.

I can't answer that because as soon as I clicked the link it triggered the webfilter "Blocked: Adult Content".
