Default Seen one of these before??

This looks interesting. But, I ain't buying this one without feedback/research.

Sounds like it would work well for a car. My truck curb weight is around 7,500 so not likely it would work for me.

multiply your curb weight by one 1/4 figuring on using it in emergencies to change a flat easily within it's capacity.

It said 3 ton capacity, so it should lift one wheel without a problem Chris.

Being 12v, from a cigarette lighter, I bet it is slower than a bottle jack.

If it cannot lift the whole front end I cannot rotate tires easily. Can use jack stands, but I can do it that way now.

I wasn't going to buy one. But, I'll bet there will be better ones out there in short order.

I suspect there will be people that buy one and have no clue how to use it.

Looks like a "w i s h" item... You'll need to carry a level so you can make sure it is on perfectly level ground otherwise I'd say it looks tippy as hell, especially extended!

PS: I was trying to figure out what that other thing was with the handle, looks like an abbreviated leaf-blower. It is actually an impact wrench...

I'm not a tire guy, but MY tire guy says to rotate radials from front to back and never side to side. What is correct?
