Which trolley jack?
« on: August 03, 2019, 07:35:33 PM »
I'm after a new trolley jack. My old Repco 1400kg is not coping with the weight of the Ranger.

Budget is $200, No need for a pro-style one but I'm happy to pay for one that is sturdy. Needs to be able to lift my Ranger to easily change a wheel, without needing a block of wood spacer like my old jack. I'm guessing a 1800-2000kg rating is sufficient?

Anything to look out for? Any brands to stay away from? Any recommendations?

I've got this one.  Tradequip. Steel/aluminum, quick lift and weighs 25kg.

On special at the moment too!
