    yeah I always use stands when I'm under the car, but for quick rear wheel swaps I'll be relying on the jack under my subframe alone thx for the feedback guys

    ive got a sealy jack paid around 100 quid for it and it came with 2 free axle stands which i didnt expect to get so that was a bonus but as other people say, they do weigh a fricken ton when lifting in and out of my skylines boot every sooo often it used to kill my back!

    here is the one i ordered off tool supplies. only diff is mine is red!

    Another Arcan one here

    Good solid bit of kit, main point is its long & low, many of the ally ones are low but short so useless. It's also industrial spec, I've used mine every day for the past 3 years no bother & it still works fine. It is relatively heavy mind you 20kg I reckon.

    Sealey

    As mentioned, they weigh about a billion tonnes but will last forever!

    And those drive on ramps look SOOOOOO shady.

    I got a steel low entry from amazon recently for about 40, can't fault it so far although doesn't have the quick lift function you were after. Has a fairly wide chassis and seems very stable, also the lowering is easily controllable, great value I reckon.
    It's also orange which makes it loads better obviously



    There is a spangly version with LEDs in the saddle but I'd sooner spend the extra 20quid on a couple of decent work lamps

    im sticking a vote in for the arcan 3tonne, got one about 6 months back for 90 from costco, not had loads of use from it but never had a problem, its bloody heavy to lift in and out your boot, but very rarely goes in the car so thats ok for me. does lift bloody high, i need to get new stands to make the most of it as my axle stands dont even hold it at half the jacks height.
