Description: With a 2 3/4" saddle clearance, our 2 ton floor jack has the lowest profile in the world yet is capable of lifting 4,000 lbs. to a height of 18 1/4". In a jam? Take the saddle out and your lifting point is just 1 3/4"! Notice the side rails, too. (Most jacks have side rails that go up immediately, so no matter how low the jack pad, the jack is useless if you can't get it under the car due to high side rails!) This floor jack has a hidden central internal wheel that allows you to pivot and slide the jack in any direction before you raise the saddle. This eliminates sliding the jack in and out from under the vehicle when positioning it. The T-bar handle also makes the descents more controllable. (Ever try to lower a jack with a "round tube" handle while your hands are greasy?) With a simple turn, the jack lowers the load smoothly; let go and the spring loaded handle automatically stops the descent. No more fussing with a hard-to-control handle! The convenient foot pedal also allows you to pump up the saddle quickly to the lift point, then use the T-bar handle from there. For safety, the jack is also fitted with a safety valve within the hydraulics to prevent overloading. This is the nicest floor jack I've ever had the pleasure of using. Made for us in Spain. (Floor jack is an additional $10.00 for shipping).

Pros: Fits under lowered Vipers. No need to drive onto boards to get Vipers high enough. Easy to roll around.
Cons: Heavy, a lightweight (35lb) low profile jack is still a consideration for taking to the track.

Overall I highly recommend purchasing this jack over the typical floor jack you see at Sears and such. Itís a few hundred dollars more but is worth it for the convenience of not needing to set boards up for driving on. Fits easily under lowered Vipers and lifts high. Only it's weight keeps it from being an excellent choice for the track but I still give it an excellent rating for the garage.

The internet - the last bastion of free speech...sort of.
