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.

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

Con's:
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.
