I have two of the orange with white handle three ton harbor freight floor jacks and they both leak down. Not very fast but they do leak down. About two years ago I bought their one and half ton aluminum jack to take to the track with me and its been great. Unless I'm working on something heavy I grab it every time.

That's what jack stands are for.

I bought a 3 1/2T Walmart fast pump jack back in the late 90's. Still great to this day. Finely crafted Chinesium!

I have several jacks that I use. My Harbor Freight aluminum jack is always in my race car trailer. Yesterday I used my heavy azz green Sears jack that I bought at least 42 years ago for 99.00 and she’s still going strong. I’ve had two people I know that have been killed by jack failure so please use jackstands.

It's their 2 t blue and yellow low profile. I se it on our ctd ram, one corner at a time often and going strong for over 6 yrs.


Just curious, do you still have it? I suggest taking it to a hydraulic shop, usually always know what they need and are able to fix

I had two of those fail within a week. They sent replacement hydraulic cylinders from : SHIN FU MFG down I sent the jacks back.
FYI: SHIN FU bought the rights to most of the old well know jack names ( hein werner, lincoln, Walker, Blackhawk and several others). They are making the components in China and doing some portion of the assembly here which allows them to claim "MADE in the USA"

I have a 6 year old 100% USA made OTC Floor boss which is no longer being made down

And a 100% USA made Milwaukee model 40 ($$) but hasn't done anything but work up beer

I went with the Daytona 3 ton low profile from Harbor Freight. Almost bought a second one for myself, but my Craftsman Jack still does the job, so I'll see how this one works out.
Thanks for all the suggestions.

I bought a pro lift brand from Advance Auto Parts years ago. It jacked up everything including my dad's motorhome. It finally gave up the ghost(a tree stump did it in).. So I brought the exact same brand Pro lift made in China for 50 bucks. Literally I jacked up a concrete dock with it. I sprayed it down with WD-40, put a piece of plywood under the water and lifted this concrete dock. About 10ft by 5 ft by 6 inch thick. It's still working today. However since I'm getting older oh, I bought the Harbor Freight aluminum Jack on sale. That sUits all my needs now.

I looked at the aluminum one and compared to others online, for the amount of use it will get, it should be fine.

OMG. Hilarious. I do something similar when I open the packages from items made in China. BTW, when you get off the plane in Shanghai, it smells even worse. I think the masks you see them all wear has nothing to do with germs, but probably sprayed with perfume so the air they breath smells better. However, back on track, I am in need of a larger and newer floor jack, so looks like I am going back to read from beginning.

Yes, still have it even after taking it to be rebuilt. Seems the plunger/valve parts are unavailable. They repaired the main cyl and honed and re-gasketed. I used it a few times and it started leaving a mess. AfterI saw your post I see there are some vendors stocking the parts, I may have to throw another hundred or so at it, or scrap it and join the disposable jack fan club.
