For this price i wasn't expecting that performance great compact jack
I have purged it several times per manual. Will jack up a car but slowly drop it. Even with no load it drops with a few hours. Do not buy! Took 2 years to happen.Sears is saving money by manufacturing in China but slowly losing customers.The only thing made in the USA are the tools and guaranteed for life which I buy. Once that is made in China I am done with Sears. I had a sears jack that lasted 20 years or more but that is when it was made in good old USA.
After a little more than a year of light use (tire rotations on a subaru forester), the jack lost pressure and collapsed. I tried the air purge procedure multiple times, and checked the oil level, but even without any weight on the jack, the arm fails to stay raised. Extremely disappointed in the deterioration of craftsman quality. I will not be buying anything more complicated than simple hand tools from craftsman.
