If you're really quick, or if you have a helper with a jack stand, this is a fantastic floor jack. But it leaks.. so it won't suspend a vehicle up in the air for longer than 20 seconds or so, iirc. I tried to fill it up with hydraulic oil once but that didn't seem to do anything, it must need a rebuild or something. Unfortunately time is limited, and if I'm going to spend another hour in the garage fixing something it's going to be a truck or a motorcycle, not a jack- so I bought another one.

This one is cool though as it's got the "SUV adapter" which puts its starting point about 2" under the axle. Plus a custom 12" carriage bolt for improved lowering dexterity... :hill: if anyone wants the project, this could be a fine jack again some day. Come get it.

I'll take it, thats identical to the other free one I got for the same reason: it leaked down. I back flushed the hydraulic cylinder and now it works pretty good. I may be able to use this one for parts.

Unfortunately duty calls...almost every week. I am always traveling Tue-Thur every week for work. I'm off to visit the Missouri Highway Patrol tomorrow morning and dont get back until Friday.

Thanks to Ricardo for being my runner!
