Just picked up one of these, £37.99 in store. IF you click and collect from halfords website it comes down to £21.99! Good jack, by the looks of things, haven't used it yet as its pitch black out! aha

Is a man thing. You've always gotta have a trolly jack to hand.
Where does this come down to £21.99?

It's showing as £32.99 on my reservation invoice

Edit: It's another trolley jack on page 2 of the Halford's website

The jack is £32.99 (644179-0) but the jack and case (684187-0) is £21.99 Go figure

Good spot and thanks op - Ordered and HOT!

Sorry couldn't find a URL that sent you to the page! Its odd, the manager in Salisbury store was saying how he couldn't believe the price. A trolley jack is something every man should own!
How many people actually own a 2 tonne trolley though ?
Just reserved mine, thanks op
Great Deal.

This ones got handle and a case which are both essential... it soon gets annoying without a handle or anywhere to store the jack away
It's this price every now and then, had mine 3 years and same one, good jack actually!
Think I paid 19.99 with case
What do you call a man with a car on his head? Oh, wait....................
Reserved! Thanks!

It was £19.99 3 days ago as almost bought one. Colder now.
I have this. It's okay, but nothing more.

It lifted the wifes KA without much of a problem, but you've got no chance with anything much bigger. I couldn't lift my Civic with it for example, which has a listed weight of 1.3 tons. The bar simply won't move.

There is no way it can lift 2 tons.

Edd China's got one that weighs a fair bit -

B&Q done a 2 tonne trolley jack, axle stands and wheel chocks all in a carry case for £14.98 a few years ago which makes this look a bit pricey in comparison

Lidl regularly have these 2 tonnes for £15-£20 as well.

Good job I didn't buy one for our Mondeo then - thanks for warning! Interestingly Halfords have same jack in yellow for additional £11 on this price - identical bar colour by looks of it. The orange model did come 2nd on Auto Express site last November though. Must be something in the paint?!

Mines fine and it's lifted heavy cars!
Poundstretcher were selling off similar hyundai jacks for £19.99 last time i was in too

Sounds like yours is faulty then! Have this exact one, will pick up the front of a 5 series estate easily.

You also seemed to have forgotten the jack isn't lifting the entire weight of the car, rather a percentage.

Been using this all week to work on my Fiesta, and have done for years, it's great for the cash. Not a low entry one though so low slung cars will need to be driven on to some wood first.

Also, NEVER work under a car with just a jack, always an axle stand, and maybe a wheel for added protection. Also make sure you know the correct location to jack and axle stand.

It's easy to check if a jack is faulty - mine simply doesn't have the hydraulic power to lift. They are incredibly simple devices, really.

I'm fully aware it's not the entire weight. I can lift the back of the civic, but not the front. I ended up using some wheel ramps in the end.

It's exactly the same as the ones from Screwfix that pop up every now and again for around the same price. They're cheap Chinese things that are okay for basic work. Not knocking them for the money - 22 quid is a fine amount for such a device, but it sounds like you got one of the better ones.

Given the cost of car parts and even fluids which you'll be using, I'd always spend a few quid more on a higher end one.

Doesn't seem like a great deal, unless you need one desperately might as well wait for a better deal.
Have this myself, bought a couple of year back. Great jack never had a problem & has lifted all sorts of weights of cars. inc heavy diesels...

I
My civic has been lifted about 10 times in the last few weeks by the same jack as this. My springs, discs, wheels, abs sensor and control arms have all been done at different times and not one problem, yours has to be faulty.

that's the set I have I paid £29.99 for it a year or so ago, it is excellent. worked nicely lifting the old 2 ton Estima
I have one of these, after about a year they start leaking the hydraulic oil out of them on your garage floor.
Same happened with a 'hilka' one that I bought from argos. Only expect to get a year or two out of cheap trolley jacks. But at that price it doesn't really matter.

mail28 is correct in that cheap trolley jacks don't last more than a couple of years. Mine seem to stop lifting so high or have internal seals go.
A 2 tonne trolley jack that can't lift an Accord is faulty. Use mine on a 406 2l diesel estate.
Great deal - very useful to have the case for storage and for transporting. Heat added.
I always treat these cheapies as disposable to be honest, they never last like the old school proper garage items which soldier on for years and years

I also picked up a nice aluminium racing jack from B&Q for £63.99 (20% off over £50 spend weekend) which is ideal for low access on lowered stuff and the kit cars

Seems to have expired now

I must say the jack (or atleast the case) is massive. Much bigger than I expected. Not sure I wanted such a massive case.... May return this
Great deal got one today. Went into store and it was showing at full price but was told buy the guy at the counter to reserve and collect at this price on my phone and give it 30 mins and it would be on the system
