Picked one of these up in Halfrauds today - not the cheapest, lowest profile or lightest jack, but does have a lifting capacity of 2.25 tonnes and lifts up to 52cm (20.5") with speed lift, so more capacity and higher lift than the £5 cheaper Halfords Jack (or the same price as the cheaper jack with case).

This jack was previously £74.99 (although that was probably too expensive) - so a saving of £40.

This jack doesn't come in a case and is heavy (around 20kgs).

Also comes with 12 month guarantee against manufacturing defects.

the rule of thumb says if they are this much at halfords you can get sone for about £15 somewhere else

Not voting either way

True enough, but it's £34.99 + £9 p&p from specialist seller at Amazon, so worth the trip to Halfords if you're after one.

£60 at Argos:

Quick check of fleabay has them at £40 delivered, so again, worth the trip to Halfrauds.

It seems hot for the price so I'll vote accordingly but apart from it being OK if you're a mechanic/like doing your own repairs at home etc it's not much use to the average punter. I mean you wouldn't want to carry it round in the boot in case of a puncture surely? 20kg! Putting aside the effect on your fuel economy, you've a chance of doing your back in lifting it out the boot!

Brill price.
Have also used one for pushing out a crumpled back end of a car.
I also once used mine for putting up a concrete RSJ with a length of 4x2 end on. worked a treat.:)

I'm confused, aren't many of the deals on this site not much use to the average punter?

I don't think you'd want to carry a trolley jack around in any car really, unless you're going to fork out £hundreds for an aluminium one. Even the lightweight non-allu ones weigh around 12kgs. I think this one is about 18kgs, so not as easy to move around as the other ones, but does have a higher capacity and can raise the car about 6" higher than other jacks as well.

So what advantage do we get with this jack? My car (like most cars) does not weigh anything like the weight this can lift. Cheepo jack for less than a tenner will suffice for most cars. Always remembering never to get under a car unless on axle stands ( never only on a jack).

Congratulations on owning a car that weighs less than 2.25 tonnes. For those that don't, this jack will be able to lift their car where a cheaper one won't.

Another feature that I mentioned in my first post is that this lifts about 6" higher than other cheaper jacks, giving you more room under the car to work.

Also, as I mentioned in my first post, this jack also has speed lift, so that you don't have to waste time and energy pumping the handle many times to get it to lift. On this jack one pump gets it seated (so easy to line up) and then a couple more will have your car elevated. On a cheaper jack you're looking at 5 or so pumps before you can even get it lined up. If you're changing all 4 wheels for a track day etc (possibly twice if you run slicks for the track on a road legal car), then that results in quite a saving of time and effort.

But apart from that, you're right, it gives you absolutely nothing more than a cheaper jack. :roll:

It was 'around 20kg' in the OP now you're telling us 'this one is about 18kgs'. Is it getting lighter? :-D

I need a decent jack for my garage i'll have a look at this tomorrow.Probably smaller than it looks.

Jesus it's a tough crowd on here! When picking up the box I realised the jack was heavy, I estimated it at around 20kgs, hence I used the term "around 20kgs" in my first post.

I then saw on the Amazon site that its actual weight is 18kgs, which, unless you're really gunning for this year's pedantry award, I would consider to be "around 20kgs".

If you are a professional pedant though, I hope the 2kg doesn't cause you too much loss of sleep! ;-)

It's probably half way between a full-on, long-handled professional trolley jack and the small ones for DIY use that you can pick up for around £20.

The wheelbase is 50cm, so that should give you a guide.

Good thing this isn't a site for posting things that are "worth the money" then - which clearly is completely subjective.

In case you didn't realise, this is a site for posting the best deals on items available to buy. Now if you're looking for a 2.25 tonne capacity, quick lift, high lift, trolley jack - then this is the best price that I have found.

If you've found cheaper, vote cold and post the link. If, however, you simply wouldn't buy it at the lowest price that it's currently available, then kindly stop spamming the thread with pointless posts about whether you consider it "worth the money".

Sod off. Who you calling a spammer? As I said, it is my opinion that this is not worth the money. It is your opinion that it is. A trolley jack at this price is a waste of money. This is at least 3 times the cost of similar trolley jacks (albeit without the super duper quick lift facility).

PS Voted cold cos you are a plonker.

How very mature of you - this isn't Britain's Got X-Factor Strictly on Ice, in case you didn't realise. The idea is that you vote based on the deal, not on whether you like the poster. :roll:

With that in mind, ask yourself these questions:

1) Can your cheaper trolley jack lift 2.25 tonnes?
2) Can your cheaper trolley jack speed up getting the car up on axle stands for working with the wheels off the ground?
3) Can your cheaper trolley jack lift the car to 52cm?

I bet the answer to all of those is no.

So, now ask yourself, what good is your cheaper trolley jack if you need a jack that can do any, or even all three of the above? The answer is patently that your cheaper trolley jack is useless in those scenarios so it doesn't matter how cheap it is.

The fact remains that this is a good price for the jack, which after all, is the point of this website.

only lifts 2 tonnes but saves a fiver and free delivery and the peace of mind your not buying from halfords which is priceless :)

Nice find, but check the maximum lift (saddle height) - only 14" (35cm). That's a full 7" lower than the one I listed. Not sure that would give you much room to play with if you're removing the wheel(s) on a 4x4 with 22" wheels.

Obviously not everyone needs that additional 250kg lift capacity, or the extra 7" of height, or the speed lift facility, but if you do, I still say that £34.99 is the cheapest it's available.

As for buying from Halfords, I find them great in every way apart from their prices. There are a shed load of stores near me (3 within a 10 mile radius), in my experience they're very good with replacing or refunding faulty or incorrect parts and they carry a reasonable amount of stock. Sure motor factors tend to be significantly cheaper for most items, but then there aren't many motor factors that are as numerous or that open until 8pm during the week or on Sundays.
