3 Ton Floor Jack - $30 (Hudson)

If interested, please respond via the Craigslist mail relay with "JACK" as the subject line and let me know a day and time you would like to come check it out. Please don't ask if it's still available - if the ad is still up, the jack is still available.

Sturdy 3 ton floor jack up for grabs.

The jack has a quirk to it. There is play between the nut in the bottom of the handle socket and the female end on the bottom of the handle that locks / unlocks the jack. To get it to work, you can take a piece of aluminum foil, fold it a few times, and put it at the bottom of the socket before putting the handle down in. This acts as a shim and takes the play out - you get about 5 uses of the jack before you have to put in new foil because the last one crumbles. So, you can either carry aluminum foil around with you when you use it or replace the locking nut in the socket with one with a slightly bigger head that will fit tight into the bottom of the handle. Also, the handle does not lock into the jack, so if you were planning on using it to move a vehicle around, it probably wouldn't be the best for that. If you're just planning to use it to jack up a vehicle in place, then it will work fine.

$30 takes it.

Thanks for looking!
