"Torin Hydraulic Ram System - 10 Ton Capacity, Model# T71001L"
Ordered a Torin Hydaulic Ram set, and when it arrived, it looked like someone had dropped the whole case and spilled all of the parts, and then stuffed everything back inside and forced the case closed. Since nothing was placed in the case correctly, the lid was bent down on each side to get the buckles closed, leaving a a gap for things to fall out in the middle. The unit works fine, but I was highly disappointed with the way it arrived.

Bought this to do some repairs on my kids car, worked great, leaks a bit and the metal piece on spreader broke, but in all honesty I was pushing it way past its limits. If I was in a full time auto body setting I'd drop them $$$ for a higher quality and strength unit but for occasional use this fit the bill

I received quickly after ordering, as usual. Case layout is a little congested, but usable. Comes with a nice assortment of accesories. Used it the next day for repairs on a dump truck, worked as well as the higher priced units in my opinion. Great tool for the money. Only issue is manual does not call out which oil is recommended for the pump. Will definitely use this brand again!

nice tool...very versatile
I've used this set several times to repair automotive dents and straighten body parts, with a good anchor you can straighten just about any thing. Works excellent.

Adequate, but not stellar
I debated about whether I should answer "Yes" to "I would recommend this product to a friend". I want to say, "Yes, but with concerns".
I bought the Torin brand because it had decent reviews and was much cheaper than the industry-leader brands. I've used it for 3 jobs so far and was quite satisfied for the first 2. On the third job, the main "heel" piece that you need for practically every job snapped. I'd only pumped the jack 2 or 3 pumps when it snapped so it was nowhere close to the limits the ram is designed for. When examining the breakage, the casting from which the piece was made appears to me to be of poor quality. I tried contacting Torin but they have not responded. I'm outside of the 90-day warranty period so have low hopes.
An additional annoyance: the carrying case is embarrassingly cheap with cheap latches. You have to move it very delicately.
So, bottom line, I got a couple good uses out of the ram and I may attempt to repair the broken casting to keep being able to use it. In the long-run, though, it probably would have been better to go with a more expensive brand. If money is tight, though, this might be an acceptable choice for you to get a job done.

I got this item during a sale for a very good price. It was my first time using an item like this so I read the instructions and got some online tips. I used it to straighten mustang to fit a fender, to fix a bent futon rail and to push out some dents on my tool box. I try to find any excuse to use this toy. I try to do my own work to save money and to buy more tools.

Hydraulic Ram kit
we used this ram set to adjust the tracks on our track crane. it preformed flawlessly. It is a very versitle tool with many attachments. I would like to see a better case to store the tool in but for the price it is a great value.
