"Torin 2 1/2 Ton Low Profile Trolley Jack, Model#T825010C"
Below Average product
I had been looking for a good trolley jack since my old Hein-Werner bit the dust. After looking for several months I settled on what I thought would be the handiest jack for the money. I was rather disappointed that the jack handle had a lot of slop where it would pivot on the piston rod. After installing a new pin that I machined for a better fit than the original it worked better but still is not ideal. It takes many pumps to reach maximum height. Also the cap for the hydraulic oil is just a simple rubber plug instead of a screw in plug so it leaks.
Time will tell if this thing holds up but so far I am not impressed with this floor jack.

Good jack, for the price. Needed smaller jack for lower height on vehicle and this jack worked well for that. Easy to use carry case helps with storage as well when not in use.

This jack does have limits but it is good the throw in the vehicle to jack up a car, small trailer or boat trailer. It has a low jack point so you can get under low trailers a jack them up.

Jack is terrible
Handle does not fit correct in the jack. Excessive play leads you to use your hand until its at least secure to car and begins to lift. Terrible design at any price. Not a smooth machine insert like much more expensive jacks. But the real problem for me a failure of the piston after only nominal use. Best to stay away from this one.

Worst excuse for floor jack !
I simply don't understand how anyone could give this jack a good review. The handle did not fit together tightly and caused the need for excess pumping motion! I didn't actually count, but it seemed like 50 handle pumps for the jack to move up an inch. It took forever to lift the SportTrac enough to get a tire off the ground - It took me less time to box it up for return ! If this is any indication I wouldn't think about any TORIN product ! Too bad there isn't a rating below 1 star !

Torin low profile jack
Bought this for my son. He has a low-rider and other jacks do not work. This one is very heavy, very sturdy and fits under low profile vehicles. He loved it!!

Great jack for the money! Good to have around if you have any cars or trucks that are low to the ground.

get what you pay for
i am reading the reviews and see everybody is happy with this jack. i suppose if this is the only one a person has owned he would not know better. i bought it thinking it would be ok for the garage and it will be but it is nothing i would recommend. for something i will use one or two times a year I hope it last.

great for lowered cars
if you cant get a regular jack under your car this is what you need. i have had it for over a year and had no problems i have a 2000 saab 95 that has coil over suspension and is about 3 in from the ground this jack gets under it no problem and lifts it up higher than i expedited. GREAT JACK

get um up with this jack
I bought this jack to try to lift a 10'x12'x8' gambrile style shead that was sinking on one side. The jack handled the load with ease, and allowed us to get shoring under it to stablize it .
