Heads up: Aluminum jack on sale at Princess

They have the 1.5 ton aluminum jacks on sale at Princess Auto this week, 99.98. I forget the regular price, I think it's 149.

Re: Heads up: Aluminum jack on sale at Princess

This is an excellent lightweight jack (25lbs!)

The single wide roller in front is very good for those red-hot days where most jacks sink into asphalt.

Great buy!

Re: Heads up: Aluminum jack on sale at Princess

Andy I have one that leaks oil sometimes, now with a full load of oil the handle only activates on the last 4 inchs of stroke. It takes forever to reach total height. I wouldn`t buy one.

My next one will be a 2.5 to 3 ton unit. I.5 Ton is way to close to the weight of one side of my car.

Hey = Buy my SS Camaro and I will throw in the jack FREEEEE

Rebuild? I'd just replace it.

It's Princess Auto - "No Sale Is Final Until You're Satisfied" - they even print that on their reciepts.

I've replaced my well used three year old 2.5 ton jack when the seals went on it. I just told the truth about it and they exchanged it for me without hesitation.

Re: Heads up: Aluminum jack on sale at Princess

the seals are available at any hydralics rebuild centre, cost $3, yes you can return them but that can be a pain when your at the track, I keep seal kits on hand just incase, takes all but 5 min to do, Doug you got air it the ram and need to bleed it out, and your car isn`t that heavy 1.5 ton is 3100lbs, your car is about 34oolbs but your only lifting 60% on one side, do the math if any one wants a seal kit PM me and I`ll pick up a stock, and bring them to the track Barc wknd, you can get seal kits for anything now, I rebuild cylinders for dock levelors and air systems all the time, its part of my real job

Re: Heads up: Aluminum jack on sale at Princess

Andy
Thanks for the info and also the offer to fix the jack. If I still have the #75 SS Camaro this fall I might do 2 race weekends.

Andy you sound like you want to start out as my entire Pit Crew and graduate to team owner. Great!!!

Your breaking me down Were do you want the car delivered?

Andy knows more about the # 75 Camaro than anyone as he did most of the prep for the former owner.

See you at the track Andy

Sorry for the Thread High Jack

Re: Heads up: Aluminum jack on sale at Princess

Wal-Mart has a nicely priced low-pro jack on sale this week. Its about the same size as the Canadian Tire "red" jack that many are familiar with, but has a 3.3" min height. I think the CanTire one is ~5"

Not bad for $40....
