Best Aluminum Jack: ALJ3T – 3 Ton Aluminum Floor Jack

LIFTING CAPACITY: 3 tons (6,000 pounds) aluminum jack

WEIGHT: 56 pounds (25.4 kilograms)

LIFTING RANGE: 3 3/4 ″ to 18 1/8″

BODY DESIGN: Do not get distracted by beautiful design. This aluminum jack is no beauty queen. It is a low profile design that allows fitting under any type of vehicle.  It still has a maximum lifting height than or equal to most of its competitors. Even though it is made out of nearly 100% aluminum, it has thick frame, side plates and a reinforced lifting arm that enables it to lift up to 3 tons (6,000 pounds) safely. The lifting pole is a two-piece design made out of aluminum. It snaps together with a quick-lock button press system. Only the bottom half of the lifting pole is padded and the pole tends to flex slightly when been used. Even though the saddle has a soft rubber pad which prevents damages to the underside of your vehicle, it can get torn up easily. The rear casters have ball bearings which allow them to rotate with ease. There are two handles on each side allowing the jack to be easily carried around. Availability of a bypass and an overload valve prevents over-extension of hydraulic ram and using the jack beyond rated capacity. This jack complies with 2009 ASME PALD Standard. aluminum jack

LIFTING AND LOWERING SYSTEM: The lifting system has a dual piston design, which allows relatively quick and effortless lifting. This one is not having a super-fast lifting system. It takes about 12 full stokes to go from fully lower to fully raised. However, the effort required on the lifting pole is much less than most jacks that fully raise in four to five strokes.  The hydraulic release allows the load to be lowered slowly and steadily.
