    Default Need a new floor jack. Suggestions?

    So my 18 year old floor jack is on its way out. It's a Larin (Chinese) so I don't know if I can rebuild it. Don't really know where to go for a new one. I had a Craftsman before this one that lasted a couple years, I really can't believe this one has lasted as long as it has.

    Anyway, I don't want to spend 500 dollars on a floor jack, but I'm not going to harbor freight either. Any suggestions?
    I used to be 'with it'. Then they changed what 'it' was. Now what I'm 'with' isn't 'it', and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me.......

    I know you said you don't want one from Harbor Freight but I have had this one for almost 10 years with no issues other then the c clip that holds the wheels on. And yes it sees regular use but not daily.

    The only issue that I have with one of my two aluminum HF jacks is that I need to add oil/bleed it every now and then. Otherwise they've both been rock solid. I have the large one for the garage and a smaller one that I bring to the racetrack. I did break the castors on the bigger one a couple of years ago but I was able to order replacements from them and they've been ok since.

    Had good luck with the HF one I have. Craftsman ones I've had were junk

    Wow. Maybe I'm going to harbor freight hahahaha. Thanks guys. I need one with two front wheels, not a single wide one. I move cars around my garage on floor jacks sometimes.

    I've had this one for about 5 years without a single issue either.

    Someone referenced Costco so I looked (I'm looking for one right now as well).
