YMMV: Harbor Freight 2 Ton Low Profile Long Reach Steel Floor Jack $99.99 on clearance

In store YMMV, no coupon required.

Harbor Freight floor jack item numbers:
68050
62310
60678

https://www.harborfreight.com/2-t...68050.html

Normally this jack is $139.99 retail and $119.99 w/ coupon. I went to Harbor Freight to pick one up in Easton, PA and saw that this jack is on clearance @ $99.99 so I picked one up. Price is not available online. Hopefully it is this price in other stores as well.

The main difference with this jack is the long reach of the low profile arm. It also lifts up to 23 3/4".

Edit:

Yes the 3 ton low profile is always cheaper but it lacks the long reach of the 2 ton.

My FIL picked up the 3 ton since it was still cheaper overall. Compared to the 3 ton low profile jack this has longer reach of the low profile "jack arm" and it jacks higher, 19.5(I believe) vs the 23 3/4.

I have this jack for 9 years and it works good on all of my cars other than Genesis sedan that seats so low and front subframe is so deep under, I can't jack up the front at once without getting on ramps first. Very heavy jack though.

Not this one (2 ton, low profile)... it's always around $125. It's the "best" version they carry of this style because of the low profile and super high lift specifications.

I think you can get HF coupon everywhere (i.e. local ads that send to your mailbox, magazine, etc.) to get a 3 ton floor jack (item #61282, 62326 and 61253) for $79.99.

You are correct but this 2 ton never goes on sale for that. This 2 ton has some advantages over the 3-ton.

The $80ish ones don't have the low profile. It has a slant nose, probably only good for SUVs and etc...
The one OP listed are awesome, I have one myself. I also have one of the blue aluminum one, only benefit of the blue one is lighter, compare to that this grey one goes lower, lifts higher and much sturdier.

I tried to add a bit of comparison to the 3 ton in my post. I compared the 2 and 3 tons in person. I got the 2 ton and my FIL got the 3 ton. The 2 ton reaches quite a few inches further which its low profile arm than the 3 ton.

Picked up 60678 for $99 in San Rafael, CA today. Had a sign for "Clearance" but they had at least 3. The damn thing is heavy.

No, it's the 3 ton heavy duty steel HF floor jack that's always on sale. I never seen the HF 2 Ton long reach floor jack go on sale in the past year. If true, this is amazing

There isn't a comparable long reach 3 ton model that Harbor Freight sells. You picked up their low profile 3 ton jack, but it does not have the same long reach of the 2 ton. They are similarly sized but take a look at the side profile pics. You can see that the 3 ton tapers up compared to the 2 ton.

2 ton:

3 ton:

Not every one will need the long reach of the 2 ton but it has its uses. It is more expensive generally for this reason I imagine. It wouldn't make sense for a 2 ton jack to cost more than a 3 ton jack with the exact same features otherwise.
