Default Arcan 3.5 ton floor jack review

My HF aluminum floor jack finally ticked me off enough to find a replacement. Costco happen to have this Arcan 3.5 ton, low profile, steel bodied, on sale for $89.

Solid construction
21.5" Lift height
Build for lowered vehicles.
Much nicer they any of the HF offers, IMO.

Made in China (not really a huge con...)
Not a quick pump jack by any means

So far after a week of use, it gets a A+ in my book. Lets hope it stands up to my abuse. Will report back!
I also grabbed the Snap on drop light, some tie downs, and cable ties. The Snap on light looks like its going to hold up fine.

I bought the same jack about 6 months ago. I have only used 3 times but it sure works better than the high lift Craftsman that it replaced. It is a very sturdy jack. I bought mine through Northern Tool because the Costco close to my house didn't carry them at that time. Costco's price is much better.
Still trying to be the man my dog thinks I am.
