Daytona 3 Ton Professional Steel Floor Jack DJ3000, Harbor Freight $159.99

I have been watching this jack for awhile now and debating between the Costco Arcan jack. It is typically $189 with coupon, retail $209. Currently on sale for $179 and stacks with the $20 off any Daytona jack for $159.99 + tax. Can be shipped for another $20 or picked up locally. As far as I can tell this is the lowest it has ever been. These are always excluded on the 20-25% off coupons.

This jack is universally praised. HF was sued by by Snap On because it is essentially the same jack they sell for $650.

Coupon to bring with if B&M:

Code: 51422865

Can pick up their 3 ton jack stands while you are there for $18. Be aware the jack is heavy AF.

You can also obviously use this on the lower tier Dayton jacks which are on sale for the "parking lot sale" which are reportedly also great jacks. Seemed worth the extra for the "top of the line" jack.

Any reason to go with the original vs one of the newer models they released?

It comes with a 3yr warranty with it, so you don''t have to pay extra. The newer ones - you have to purchase extra warranty on top of the shitty 90 day one. Feature wise, I like the newer ones better. But needing a 3yr or probably longer warranty is a given on these ones that they have been selling since mid last year. They must've switched the factory/source they use to manufacture these, because the one I purchased last year failed within a few months - the piston head started leaking and I had only used it for a few months on my smaller car and not even with my SUV. My friend bought his several years back and beats the hell out of it and it is still holding good. So the newer products they sell are real crappy compared to the ones they used to sell until a few years back in general. Also if you are going to take something back in for a warranty exchange - don't expect to walkin and walkout in a few minutes with a replacement under warranty. Be prepared to spend a few hours, argue and threaten to call corporate before they will agree to a replacement under warranty f at all. At least for me, it is not worthwhile going in there anymore after shopping there for several decades- I would rather shop at Northern Tool despite having to pay the higher prices.

Thanks for the info. At first I thought the warranty might have been a misprint. Magnetic filter seems to be another difference? I liked the new ds300lpg better when looking at them in store. Didn't want too huge of a jack if I could avoid it as storage is an issue. Been using a 1.5 ton low profile that I bought from northern tool a few years ago. I like the size, but it's barely adequate to lift a mid-size sedan or compact SUV. I guess I'll go back and have another look at the original Daytona.

I bought this for 200 a month ago. Great jack and literally just as good as snap-ons. It is really heavy. Remember to bleed the jack oil before first use.

I love HF and this seems highly reviewed. Honest question, how is this better than my $50 3-ton aluminum jack? https://youtu.be/4KdKGfm6jvE

The $50 one you have is this one - https://www.harborfreight.com/3-t...64260.html It is the crappiest one they sell, the newer ones sold in recent times will last you a year - maybe 2, just like the Husky or Autozone ones.. Of course folks that have bought em 10-20 years ago still have them working. So it is just like the old Sears Craftsman compared to the BD Craftsman which is all but junk.,

The video you linked is the $180 one - https://www.harborfreight.com/3-t...4544.html. This is light weight and for folks that want to carry a decent jack in their vehicle.

The real advantage of the snap-on duplicate or the newer $180 ones: higher lift - I use it on my old very low supra along with the jack beam ( 28-29" ) and get a pretty good lift to either use my homemade wooden jack stands or the high lift 6 ton ones. Also you need fewer pumps to lift higher and these are low profile as well, plus the snap-on copycat gives you the 3yr warranty for free - though HF warranty is questionable these days at best. Also the 3yr warranty on the the others is like $30-$40 - jacking up the price even higher.

No I have the silver and blue aluminum one. Got it on a Slickdeal like 6-7 years ago for 50 bucks. It was MSRP like 150ish so it's probably the same model in your 2nd link. Weighs nothing and it has served me well. Just wondering if it was worth upgrading but I'm guessing no

Homemade wooden jack stands. I hope that is a joke.

Nothing wrong with wooden jack stands, I'd say I know more people with wood ones than metal.

Most videos I saw made it seem like even when they checked it was fine. Think I really need to bleed it?

It couldn't hurt and it only takes a few minutes to make sure it will be working correctly

I've had my Daytona for 2 years. Best jack I've owned - smooth, good range, stable- downside is it's heavy.

Dang, this is cheaper than the BF price.

I really want that long reach, low profile Daytona they've got but I can wait for a good sale, I've got a few Arcans from Costco in the garage but they only go up to about 18".
