Default Trolley Jack

I'm trying to find a trolley jack at a reasonable price (~$150). A decent one, not one of those dicky little ones lol. I got mine from Repco but it doesnt lower smoothly. No matter how careful I am it "drops" the car, not good when trying to gently lower onto stands. The other factor is it must have a reasonable lift, at least 400mm.

If you find a good one for that money, we might then try something a bit easier for you. Like finding Lassiter's lost reef.

Finally...the container made it in. I've been waiting for a shipment from Trade Tools to come in, there had been a fire at the factory so the entire country was out. Picked it up today. Wasnt till I got home & looked up their website found they had a deal, 2T trolley jack plus ratchet stands for the same price! Might have to give them a call...

Unlike the crap Repco one, this has a very smooth action & lowers the car gently & slowly
