What should I look for in a floor jack?
Our son said he'd like a 2 or 3 ton floor jack for Christmas. He works on his cars, a Blazer and a minivan. We know nothing about floor jacks. I'm seeing them in Harbor Freight and Kmart and some other places like that for $70 to $100. And our gift giving limit is @ $100.
On the other hand, I've been reading that those are POS and I really don't want to take a chance on my child being killed. If you just Google floor jacks, the prices are much higher. I was wondering about Craigslist, but how do I know if those are okay?
