I've had this one for almost 2 years and the 2.5 ton one from Harbor Freight for almost a year. This one is used more and is still lifting like it did when it was new. The one from Harbor Freight lasted about 4 months before the cylinders started leaking. Definitely recommended by me. It does go down to $55 - $60 sometimes, but if you need a jack right now, this is still a decent deal.
