Craftsman 3-Ton Floor Jack

I just wanted to let you guys know about a great deal I found.

Craftsman 3-ton floor jack, 36" creeper, 2 jackstand combo for $109.00


The floor jack has a max height of 19 3/4".

I've only used it a handful of a times so I can't vouch for the durability, but I can say everything seems to be very well built.

Looks like a great deal!

I expend tremendous amounts of energy and time merely to be normal.

Re: Craftsman 3-Ton Floor Jack

That is a great deal! I picked up a pair of these



They're $40 a piece at tractor supply. The jack stand has a built in bottle jack, so you don't need a floor jack. It has a built in locking mechanism for safety, they work great! They can also work for trail repairs because of how wide of a base it has. It certainly feels a lot safer than a hi-lift.

Re: Craftsman 3-Ton Floor Jack

They keep putting this on sale every 2-3 months for the same price. I have been asking for this for 2 years and still haven't gotten it.

Already have a floor jack, creeper and jacks stands, but don't have one of these Powerbuilt combo jack stands/bottle jacks. I could use a pair right now so that I can adjust my front coilovers.

Think I've actually seen this item before but didn't buy it then. Ordered 2 today at ToolsmithDirect for $34.99 each (with only $4.95 shipping), because Tractor Supply lists them as "in store" items only and the closest store to me (which is 54 miles away) didn't have it in stock.

FYI, here's a promotional YouTube video that I found on this product as well:

I'm envisioning a run on current Powerbuilt Jackstand inventories . . .

I may have to snag another set like this because I foresee my '62 T-Bird spending quite some time up on stands in the future.
