    hi style lift jack $48

    *** EDIT HI-LIFT ***STYLE*** JACK. MOTOMASTER BRAND NOT HI-LIFT BRAND ***

    this week at canadian tire they have 3 ton farm jack ( hi lift *STYLE* ) on sale for $48.99 regular $89.99. lift range from 6 - 42 inches. obviously it's not the top of the line jack but for $50 bucks a great deal for those who don't have one in the back of the jeep. i picked one up this morning and just wanted to pass along the information on this deal for anyone in the market for a hi lift. any comments, concerns or reviews of this product are welcome.

    That's not a Hi-Lift.

    That being said, it might work fine as long as you can get rebuild kits as well.

    I have the crappy tire hi-lift.
    I woulda gladly paid triple the price for a north american made real deal, hi lift, like I had in my old scout, back in the 80's
    But, I found out, that even the real high lifts are made in china nowadays
    So, I botta crappy tire jack.
    Anyways, I put the crappy tire jack on the rear carrier, same day, parts fell off on the road going over a few bumps.
    So, you gotta put locktite on the bolts that hold the thing together right after you buy it.
    As for spare parts, buy two of 'em on sale.
    I think the old hi-lifts mighta been made in Canada.
    Those old hi-lifts are very reliable and solid, like a warn 8274 winch.
    The new ones, just aint the same.

    thanks for the 'actual user input' Chad! I'll be sure to pull mine apart and loctiite the bolts!

    Pretty sure 'Jack-All' was the one you're thinking of, the company WAS from Kitchener Ontario along time ago but not sure if they made them there. ..since then the 'jackall' name seems to have been bought by some company called Maasdam as far as I can tell.

    Hi-lift is from the USA, but probably just made in china too...

    either way the cheap TSC 'Torin - Big Red 60 farm jack' lifted my jeep from the front bumper and lowered it back down very smoothly so I'm happy.

    I doubt it... 'jack-all' hasn't been around for a long time as far as I know. I'm sure the 'hi-lift' re-build kit is very similar though...

    they even have an ebay store http://stores.ebay.com/hiliftjackcompany/

    Home Hardware sells the Jackall + a 'maintenance' (rebuild) kit

    You will likely have to pre-order the maintenance kit - mine took a couple of days to arrive from the warehouse
    ( on their website today - $ 29.99 )


    Home Hardware often has the 48" Jackall on sale ( regular price $89.99 ) - but this rarely appears in their flyers


    Here is some interesting product research: Rated capacity
    Jackall - 8000 pounds
    TSC - 7000
    Hi-lift - 4660

    If you want to clamp/spread to the rated capacity - try the JackMate ( $39.95 at Trek Outfitters )
    ( Search YouTube for winching + manual 'jaws of life' demonstrations )
    "Know it all googler"
