    Does anyone know where to get one of the aluminium low entry trolley jacks from these days? there used to be shit loads on ebay for £50 but I cant find one anywhere for under £100 now:(

    They usually have led lights around the circular jacking pad,and were either red or blue adonised. They look pretty cheap but work really well, my bro has one he got from ebay a few years ago and its still going strong,but now he needs it for work I cant borrow it all the time:wack:

    Any help appreciated fellas.

    cheers J

    Don't bother with a Clarke one from machine mart they are shit and fall apart. I've had an Arcan one now which are about £120 and is lasting really well.

    Not sure why people slag the clarke ones off I think they just abuse them. Ive had mine for 2 years and it gets used for a LOT of garage work as well as simple drift use and I have not had any problems with it at all.

    I've found my 2T ali one to be lower than the steel 3T one my mate has, both Arcan jacks.

    They're both bloody good, and if you can't get one from Costco they're usually on eBay.

    It's low entry, but it gets pretty fat about halfway along.
