Floor Jack

For years I looked for the perfect floor jack. Today while on Youtube, I stumbled upon the Pro Eagle Big Wheel floor jack. The jack has large wheels to roll over cracks in the concrete and an adjustable height extension. A bit pricey but it appears to be a quality product with the features I want. Does anyone have feedback on this product?

I have the one without the big wheels. It’s a great jack and does the job. Specially if you’re lifted. I even got rid of my hi lift and only use this one and carry it with me when off roading.

I bought mine when they first started selling them a couple of years ago. I think back then they were about 280. I know they’re a bit on the pricey side now. But if you have the funds, it’s well worth it in my opinion.

Re: Floor Jack

ToyRig,

You apparently have a different model than the "Big Wheel" but if you don't mind could you answer a couple questions.

-Which weight capacity do you have?

-Roughly how high does your jack lift without the extension?

-Does the jack have any grease zerts?


There isn't much information on Pro Eagles web site. They offer the Big Wheel jack in 2 and 3 ton versions but don't list lift heights for either model. They also offer 2 different size extensions. It's an expensive jack but I don't mind paying more for quality.

Re: Floor Jack

Yeah not much info on the web site. Looks like they work great on UTVs. Web site does not have info on where made. If they are Chinese they are way over$priced. The Harbor Freight Aluminum ones in a 3ton are half the cost and pretty good jacks.

Re: Floor Jack

I took a closer look at Pro Eagles web sit. They specify an "Overall" lift height of 26 inches for the 2 ton, and 28 inches for the 3 ton, but it's not clear to me if these measurement are with or without the height extension.

Re: Floor Jack

Those wheels look weak to me. $400 for a jack seems really high. Get yourself a harbor freight steel 3 ton jack ($75) and you won`t have any problems lifting your Lifted FJ. Its the best floor jack I have ever had

@olongapo2

I have the 2 ton

There’s no grease zerks on them.

And I’ve included pictures for the different heights.

Re: Floor Jack

ToyRig,

I appreciate you taking photo of the heights. Thank You.

I think I'm going to pull the trigger.
