Torin 2 1/2-Ton Low Profile Trolley Jack, Model#T825010C
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 .

Good floor jack for the price
I bought this jack to put it behind the seat of the pickup for emergencies as the factory jacks aren't very good. It also comes with a case that keeps it from rattling around and losing the handle. I have used it a few times for flats on vehicles and trailers and it works fine. The only part that is lacking is the handle seems to be a bit short. For the price you can't get a better portable rolling floor jack, though. I would definately recommend this jack for what I am using it for. If you want a heavy duty mechanic's floor jack, this probably isn't it, but if you want a decent smaller size jack for emergency or roadside use, it is perfect.

Good Trolley Jack
I picked this up a few weeks ago and it's a great little low profile jack.
I use this on my 2007 Honda Civic which is pretty low to the ground and it has no problem getting under the sub frame. The jack states that its maximum lifting range is around 14 inches which is right when there's no load. When you put a load on it however the maximum range is around a 12 3/8ths inches. So it's not ideal for big jobs underneath the car because you have clearence issues and may have problems generating leverage.
But it does come in a neat case that tucks away great in my garage. It also ALWAYS works. I've used this thing multiple times in the same day and it always lifts the car and holds it easily. This is ideal to use for oil changes, and chaging tires and basic maintenance.
