Bought a Pittsburgh Floor jack today through amazon. Yes they are Chinese
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LR753T8?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00

I have used and really like the Hein Warner.
But i figure i could buy 3 of these for the price of 1 above. The reviews were good to excellent.

Comments?

I bought a Pittsburgh 2 1/2 ton low rise (looks identical to yours) from Harbor Freight about 3 years ago. No complaints from me. I bought it on sale for about $80 or so,as I remember.
My old one was wearing out and wouldn't lift more than 1/4" on each stroke,even after bleeding. Plus my old one wouldn't fit under my wife's Toyota's sub frame.
Low profile is the way to go for use on modern cars!

I bought this lightweight rapid jack from HF when they first opened up a store 3 blocks away from my place 4 years ago at an unheard of price of $69.99+ tax with a mailer coupon! Not the same as the ones you guys have but the online reviews of HF's line of jacks are excellent. I still use a heavy Craftsman 1 1/2 ton jack that my dad bought 40 years ago sometimes, talk about durable! The HF one is very light and perfect for a variety of uses. Even if it only lasts 10 years, it's hard to beat their stupid cheap prices on this stuff for home use. http://m.harborfreight.com/rapid-pump-15-ton-compact-aluminum-racing-jack-68053-7814.html?utm_referrer=direct%2Fnot%20provided

Jack works good. Lifts GTO with low effort. Small fluid leak at pressure relief plugs. Probably cut o-ring or something. Only leaks at rest. not with weight on jack. Government warning says dont mess with relief valves or Death by Bunga-Bunga..

If you wanted an American jack you'd have to buy one off a tool truck, and not all tool truck jacks are made in the USA anymore either.

Got the camera working.

I noticed the lower plug on the valve body was higher than the upper. I took a screw driver and tighten the lower plug until it seated. Leak fixed. Yes it had a screw loose. Works great!



I could have left out the Drama from post 7 and just fixed it. I apologize.

Mark don't fret; sometimes it pays to speak up about something and when you re-think it, things become clear and get resolved. Quick fix. All good.
