Hein-Werner Jack Stands - 3-Ton Capacity, 2-Pk., Model# HW93503
No longer made in USA
Very disappointed!!! I purchased these jack stands a few years ago and they are great! They were made in the USA and the quality and workmanship was excellent. I purchased another set a few months ago. I noticed right away when I saw the box that these were NOT made in the USA. Upon opening the box, I found that they say "Assembled in the USA". What that means is, they opened the box that was shipped from another country and inserted the yellow extension (USA cast into side of it), then close the box and ship it to you. I am willing to pay more for a quality product that's made in the USA, but not for this! Buyer beware!!! They are no longer "Made in the USA"!!!

After reviewing several similar products on line I read all of reviews I could find. Without a doubt these seemed to have the highest marks consistently. I was also concerned with the deeper V saddle I had seen on other brands with the way the vehicle may sit on this if not perfectly centered. This may be fine on round surfaces just not so sure on flat surfaces. Overall these have worked great. Well built, solid construction and in the end something I am very comfortable working under. It was worth the extra to me in the end and have no regrets.

worth the extra money
Stands did work well when I used them to rotate my son's tires. I did have to enlarge one of holes that you put the cotter pin in as the pin would not fit through one of the holes that is used for a stop.

hein-werner jack stands
I recently bought both the 3 ton and 6 ton models. Quality of the jack stands are excellent. I like the tabs welded on the bottom of the stand. Less likely to sink into asphalt. My only complaint is the angle of the handle or release lever. They are too high. When you pick up the stand by the handle, your fingers are sure to get pinched by the saddle. Also when the stand is in use (with the ratchet locked in position) the handles still sit higher than any other stand I have seen. Makes me constantly double check that they are engaged. Overall a great product , just wish they had a better feel to pick up and look as if the handle is securely set while in use.

Very stable, the design of the top prevents damage that I have seen from other stands. Nicely made and finished. More expensive yes, but after the first set, this has been the one that has seen repeat purchases when we have needed additional stands. Had used 4 other brands first and the deeper V shaped tops on them had caused issues for us even with plastic covers. The broader flatter top on these stands have been the feature we needed.

We use these stands for all types of equipment from cars and trucks to forklifts. They are sturdy and the wight capacity is perfect for most of our daily applications.
