Just bought a new floor jack

Post by Brads70 on Sun Jul 24, 2016 5:06 pm

Thought I would treat myself to a new floor jack as my old one is like 25 years old and a heavy pig of a thing to maneuver. I went online to research my options and found this.

The Arcan ALJ3T Aluminum Floor Jack  seemed to have many favorable reviews online.
Then I found this at Princess Auto , seems others re label it ?

Looks exactly the same to me , so I bought it at my local Princess Auto. All they had left was a floor model so I asked and got 10% off Cool   I like it , very light and about 6 pumps to full height! Princess Auto even carries a seal kit and springs in case you need them down the road. It's made in China I'm sure but so is the Arcan labeled one I'd bet.
Just thought I would pass it on.....

Princess Auto, has some really good deals, most of the time. I know guys who have returned stuff after 6 months, with no questions asked. They stand behind what they say, (we aren't happy until you are ).

I walked in to princess auto one day and was talking to one of the attendants and happened to mention that I had bought some chrome valve covers there 5 years earlier and he said that if they ever leak or if I have a problem with them to just bring them in and they would exchange them, but they never leaked and I sold them this year.

If the stuff they sold was any good you wouldn't have to return it. I rarely shop there.

I've had to return Snap-On stuff and got nothing but hassles.

So far so good , I jacked up the family Chevy Suburban and my sons jeep to do oil changes a couple days ago.... Nice and light to maneuver around!
