3 ton aluminum floor jack for $99.99 + $4.99 shipping online, or $94.99 in-store

http://www.costco.com/3-Ton-Profe...22458.html

I was thinking of getting a harbor freight jack but I ended up buying this instead.

Pros:
- HF 3 ton steel jack is a bit cheaper, around $80. But HF steel jack is heavy, +20lbs difference.
- This is cheaper than HF equivalent aluminum jack ($175).
- Costco warranty vs. HF 90 day warranty

Cons:
- Not a low profile jack, 4" clearance needed.
- Only 18.6" max lift, probably not great for SUV's and trucks.
- But this is only $99, you can't have everything.


[Update] saw this jack at one of my local Costcos tonight, it is selling for $94.99 in store, no shipping. Makes it an even better deal!

I got mine today and it is a solid jack. It's got some weight to it, it's not 100% aluminum but a mix of steel and aluminum. I haven't tried using it yet but it seems much studier than the 2 ton jack I had before.

I believe this is online only, haven't seen it at my local Costco (San Diego, CA). YMMV. Hopefully someone who has this jack or has seen it can tell us what the quality's like?
I'm using this from last three years and very happy with it. Used on cars and suvs and no problem. Was little slow on S500 and SUV as those were heavy cars but no leaks yet unlike piece of junk "Powerbuilt 4000 lb. Triple Lift Floor Jack" that I got from pep boys. It started leaking as soon as it was out of warranty.

HF 3ton is 68lb vs 58lb of this one, only 10lb difference.
HF 3ton is frequently on sale for $68 (remember it cause that's $1/lb LOL)

Actually I lifted both HF 3ton steel and 3ton aluminum. Both are about equally heavy to me and require similar effort. No one plans to lift it often. So to be honest that 10 lb difference is not that significant.

One of the reviews online say it works fine with his SUV. I don't know the first thing about this but I know my husband said we needed a new one and the price/reviews seem good to me. Thanks OP.

I'd happily pay the extra $24 to get a lighter floor jack with costco warranty. No brainer. Now if you don't have a costco membership or you are really hurting for cash, that is a different story.

No Costco membership needed to buy this jack online btw!

I didn't put a membership number in and the order went thru online. No surcharge. It's $10 more online than if I had bought it in store, but worth it for me not having to go wait in line.

What happens if you return without a membership? I don't know.

A couple years ago, I returned a pair of jeans a few months after my costco membership had expired (I didn't renew). They just gave me cash. I had the receipt tho.

For anyone buying this online with no membership, it'd proably be a good idea to keep the receipt just in case.
Worst case is if it fails on me after a couple years and I need to take it back to a store, I'll just buy a membership then. Don't forget memberships can also be returned!

Not sure whether 10 pounds makes any real difference since I just roll my jack around the garage and driveway
