When it comes to working on your car, few things are more important than having the right tools for the job. Those cars that are built for speed will have a low clearance, since these vehicles usually stand very close to the ground. Our Car Jacks section contains a wide range of different style floor jacks. Scissor floor jacks are often used in emergency situations. Ideal for lightweight to medium size vehicles.

A jack stand is a tripod type of tool that will be placed under the vehicle under the frame so in the instance that the car might shift and come off the jack the jack stand will catch the vehicle and avoid damage to the vehicle or stop someone from being hurt from the car falling.

The Hi-Lift Jack is equipped with a shear bolt to prevent improper use stemming from attempted elevation of a vehicle that weighs more than the jack can handle. Just like the other two, the Torin is highly capable of lifting heavy cars, as it has a maximum lifting capacity of up to 3 tons.

This action leads to a lifting of one side of the car. If you are looking for the all around best floor jack that we've come across, look no further than the Powerzone 380044 3 Ton Garage Jack. The hydraulic jack comes with a detachable lever, which is pumped to activate the lifting mechanism.

They have the same lifting capacity and a lighter frame that allows easy lifting and storing. All jacks will give you a minimum lifting distance and a maximum lifting distance. You want a jack which will lift your vehicle high enough for you to get under there and work.

Like for the Passca jacks, the manufacturer clearly indicates a minimum and maximum lifting height. Nothing can beat a hydraulic floor jack in terms of usage. Use Slow Motions: When lifting the vehicle or lowering it, do it in slow motions, while monitoring the aluminum 3 ton floor jack.
