I needed a relatively lightweight, small and inexpensive floor jack for occasional repairs and maintenance of small to mid-sized cars and maybe a compact SUV, and after a lot of research I settled on this one, and have been quite happy with it. It's not "heavy duty", so you won't want it if you work on your vehicles all the time. Get a bigger, heavier and more expensive floor jack for that (if you have a garage to store it in, that is, which I currently don't). But for lifting the car once or twice a month, to rotate tires, replace a flat, replace pads & rotors, check or work on suspension, etc., it does the job--so long as you only use it to lift and lower the car and use jack stands when you're actually working on the car! (Which is what you should do with ANY floor jack--NEVER work under a car lifted only by a floor jack!) So far I've used it 7 or 8 times, to check a tie rod's toe-in, to replace a bad front wheel bearing (and then check on it several days later), and do various other checks, all using the car's pinch weld lift point, as well as lift another, heavier car's entire front end using its cross-member lift point, to check on various components that might need some work. It's performed great each and every time. And by performed great, I mean that it lifted the lift point and vehicle with relatively few strokes, maybe 10-15 tops, stayed lifted long enough to place a jack stand under a lift point, then lowered the car slowly and gently when the release valve was opened slightly (I'm talking half a turn or so, if that). It's also relatively compact and light, for a floor jack at least, enough that you can store it in the trunk if you prefer, although I don't (I keep the car's emergency jack for, well, emergencies). I suspect that the person who said that it took way too many pumps to lift their car was either used to a much more expensive "pro" floor jack that only requires a few pumps, got a bad unit with a bad seal or missing jack oil, or failed to close the release valve fully. When I first bought this it failed to work entirely, so I brought it back for a replacement, which has worked great since. So, beware, some of these are defective or maybe got damaged in shipment, and make sure to check yours in the store or as soon as you get it if delivered. Anyway, caveats aside, it's a really nice light to medium duty floor jack. If you want something more "serious", you'll have to spend around double, and it'll weigh twice as much.
The limit of the pump stroke is too short so it only lifts about a 1/4 inch with each stroke. You'll easily spend 50 - 100 strokes to lift a car just to get the tire off the ground. Not exaggerating about this
Came with a broken foot and plastic handle. To return/exchange seemed way to complicated so I fixed it myself and will do without the broken handle.
I bought this jack few years ago for small car. But I recently have 2020 CRV and tired to see the jack will work on new vehicle. Unfortunately it cracked and oil leaking out. My whole CRV is 3300lbs.
