Looking for cheap axle stands as a new diy mechanic and need to stop risking my life to save £10

3 tonne for £2 more.
Cheapest its been.

The Halfords 3 Tonne Axle Stands have a large base for extra stability with a load pin with safety chain attached. Enough for most average size cars.

remember, it's 1 tonne per axle stand.

I have the 2 Tonne version and they are well made.

yo mamma so fat she uses axle stands not a chair

:-D

Not bad but as usual the original Halfords price is OTT.

I'd spend an extra few quid and get ratchet ones such as these amazon.co.uk/Sil…nds

Been using these axle stands for a good while now with no problems.
Also got these to protect the cars underneath.
Rubber protection pads

Work great

2 tonne axle stands....how on earth you gonna pick these up?

Bought the 3 tonne pair, thanks op

Just a quick health and safety tip for those DIY'ers getting these

When you take a wheel off the car, slide it under so that if the axle stands slip you still have a chance of not seriously hurting yourself! (It would also limit the damage to the car )

you have to buy a trolley jack!

That's a good tip, never thought of doing that. I'll do that from now on instead of asking my wife to support the car from underneath, just in case the stands break.

oh nice - I've been looking for some cheap speaker stands.

Ok, serious tip now ☺
When servicing the car and you jack up one corner, use this stand as EXTRA support, next to the jack.
In other words, jack car, place stand in correct position and lower jack until weight of the car is on both stand and jack.
So if one fails the other will keep the car up and away from your chest.
This is true especially for us diy mechanics who don't have a professional jack but just a £20 jack from Halfords.
Honestly I wouldn't use these stands to keep more than a corner in the air.
If you intend to do so, get yourself some heavy timber and place under the wheels, or ramps.

1) I have these and there is not much you can say about them really as they do the job.
I also have the ratchet version that has 4 feet , which needs a flat surface ; as anyone who has a wobbly table will know, three feet will not wobble and does not need a flat surface.

Thanks for the link , but those rubber pads are £5 each ! Two of them, is the cost of the axle stand !
Anyone any ideas or links for a cheaper version?

If it means not scratching the underbody seal of the Car and then rusting, then I was more than happy and they can be used time and again.

To go on the jack I cut up a pair of old wellies that my son had grown out of, the seam on the car under the sill fits nicely into the groove in the sole of the welly. I'd worry about doing this on an axle stand though as it may mean more opportunity for something slipping if you don't get it right.

Maybe a better solution for axle stands would be that thin rubber bobbly non-slip stuff, about £1 a roll in home bargains.

I'd tend to use them bare though and not worry about it, if you're careful the damage will be minimal.

​Yip... a block of wood also works well.

Depending on your jacking point a piece of 2x4 or 12mm ply are what I use.

​Exactly what I do. Never put all your trust in one device.

​How much does your van weigh? (roughly)

Flubit on the Silverline ones (3 ton) from Amazon and it came back with £15.08 (within 4 hrs got response). Price includes delivery.

​my L200 has a kerb weight of 2850kg but it also has a rear canopy which brings it upto 3tonne and the tools in the back

I got these last week to do some work on my Astra. I used them to hold both the front and rear off the ground (not at the same time oO ) and managed to get lots of room under there to change my exhaust front pipe and my drop links. There is a wide range between the three holes so finding the right height can be tricky but it gets the job done.

Yes I know they were Hockey Pucks. But if they are not cut down as these are, they just fall off (not worth the hassle as I've tried already) and could course serious damage not worth the risk for the sake of a couple of pound to be safe. After all the car is worth a good few thousand. But thanks for the advice

The ones you posted are not ideal either for some folk ...as for example.....Ford cars need 'V' groove pads ....BMW need a rectangle block pad.....etc.
