Trolley jack recommendations?

Recommended Posts

I have one of these and its pretty legit - https://www.supercheapauto.co.nz/p/toolpro-toolpro-low-profile-garage-jack-3000kg/563849.html and looks like the same thing as Sammos but in racing red.

I have a Wayco Jack. It cost me around $18K in lost income when I tried to pick it up one day. Wrecked my back.

My Wayco one since failed.

It did a lot of work though.

However it never made up for ruining my back.

Sorry to hear, back issues are a bitch, but to be fair, if it would not have been the jack, it probably would have something else you would have lifted instead.

What I am most interested in when it comes to the jacks, does anyone know about the quality of STA parts at all? I know that mainly the American car guys shop there but was wondering if the quality is good, I am planning to have a drive there tomorrow to have a look at their jacks.

Segedins on Dominion Road sell low profile aluminium floor jacks, good prices also depending on the load

Dubman seems to have had exposure to them by the looks of it, anybody else out there who can say something to the quality of their jacks?

Yup, my mate has one of these as well - used it to do suspension before I bought my own - grunty as and good buying when on 'special'.

@kiwi75 I would grab one of those for $240 TBH

I'm not a jack expert, but after my crappy '1.5 ton' (LOL) jack from supercheap couldn't lift my E46 high enough to get jackstands underneath before sagging out, I got one of these from an outfit on the North Shore:

https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/car-parts-accessories/tools-repair-kits/other/listing/2937002980?bof=SkHPhXfD

Had no issues with it - built like a tank (well over 40kg), lifts my car with minimal pumps like its a feather and has a nice slow release.

I have one that looks like that - mine is red. You really don't want to carry it far.
The release was a bit snatchy to start with but gets better with use.
Only thing I might like (aside from it being lighter!) is to have a quicklift function, but I can easily live without that.
