My old jack stands have just 4000 lb. capacity yet they look more sturdily constructed than these. I never completely rely on any of them when working under a car and always have multiple redundant supports. Be careful.

Old wheels flat under the frame are a good last resort as well

I use as many jack stands as possible plus a jack that has most tension relieved. So if raising the rear end of a car I usually have 4 jack stands and a jack (front wheels chocked).

I bought these for a similar price maybe a year ago only because I had SYW points. They're welded where the horizontal support bars meet the corners and aren't that confidence-inspiring. I'm not a structural engineer by any means but I also spent the extra $5 for the 3T from Harbor Freight (https://m.harborfreight.com/autom...61196.html) which I use over these. I'll only use the Craftsmen as a supplemental stand.

I was just about to post the same. Look at the welds on the cross members on the Craftsman compared to the solid member of the Pittsburgh, which would you trust more. If one of those welds give on the Craftsman it will flatten like a pancake. Well worth the extra couple of bucks for the Harbor's. I would even suggest springing for the 6-ton or 12-ton, that way you are set for nearly anything, weight wise. Especially if you have big trucks/SUV's, RV's, etc..

My opinion, but generally I would use the following when choosing the correct weight class for your stands

Compact Cars- 2 Ton
Cars/Compact SUV's- 3 Ton
SUV/Half Ton Trucks- 6 Ton
RV/ 3/4 Ton or Larger- 12 Ton
Semi/Fleet - 25 Ton

Great minds think alike. I've own the Sears. Soooo many welds...
Got rid of them and the 2 1/4 ton jack they came with.

When used properly, ugly looking welds and all, these are plenty sufficient for most private vehicles and simply don't fail. (if they did, these would've been pulled off the shelves and Sears would've been sued out of existence)

Though I understand the psychology behind having stronger stands than actually needed, the caution I have when moving up to 3 or 4 ton sets is that they also get bigger so space under the vehicle will be more limited and their minimum height is taller making it more difficult to get the vehicle jacked high enough to properly place them under your car's recommended support points unless you have a large jack.
