I haven't bought any tools from HF, but most people I know who have say the quality is not great.

It works great. Easy few pumps to lift, low height gets under my lowered car easily, no problems with gradually lowering it back down. Plus it is very light (as far as jacks go), which was important for me since I get stuck carrying mine up and down a flight of stairs when I want to use it

I think it was worth the money.
Thanks for the input! Did you need anything to go on top of the stands, for them to fit into the plastic jack-point-recesses?

Can this jack reach the front mounting point, or do you drive the car on a ramp or onto pieces of wood?
