      I own several Pittsburgh jack stands and I don't think any of them say HF on them.
      I should be safe then.

            Got one of those Pitborgs 2.5 tiny ton allyminimum 'racin' jacks only because every time I tried to load one of my Lincolns into the truck, my back complained for the next several days or more. The racin jack is probably 5 now and so far so good. Had two Lincolns but one finally quit and bought a seal kit for it and it sat on a bench for over 5 years. Finally, it got scraped but the other one is still working. The thing has to be 40 years old now but it has a dose of Viagra in it (heavier oil :D) and it's still working. Gotta have two floor jack for obvious reasons!

                My first floor jack was from Sears in the mid 70's and never even paid attention to the 'where it was made' tag and was surprised when I finally noticed it. Thing is, it was made in Taiwan which imo, is better than being made in main land China. Have two of those swivel in all kinds of directions vices and one says made in China and the other says Taiwan. The one with the China tag is a piece of crap while the one made in Taiwan is pretty dang good but both do the job and haven't broke yet. The Taiwan vice does the job without fusing with it....

                    A pretty good while now but, every now and then, one can be found. Heck, in 'horror' freight, I found an anvil that was made in Russia so went looking for a good size hammer and went after it and it didn't break lol. I went after it with a vengence and hit it hard on the very end of the horn and it didn't break off! And it was only 40 bucks!! Should of grabbed it but really didn't need it. Had a couple of small ones made from rail road rails....

                      should have opted for the long reach.

                          I have a 30 year old Weirner (sp?) jack...never worked worth a damn. Every time in in HF I look at the jacks. I think the long green one will follow me home next time and the other will be a back up.
                          Thanks

                          I've had a high dollar Warner and a craftsman from back when Sears sold good tools. Neither gave the service I expected for the price.
                          With 20 or 25% off coupons I wouldn't look ANYWHERE for a floorjack other than horror freight.

                            I had a Hein Werner knockoff jack from Sams aka Costco a few years ago, it had a super sturdy frame looked like it would last a lifetime....ummm nope got about 30 uses before it went south. Of course this happens while my truck is on jacks. I had to have my neighbor pump the jack like crazy while I was able remove jackstands. I took the hydraulic cylinder apart and where the part that pushes on the steel checkball that seals the bleed hole.....it split. The steel checkball looked more like a golf ball, covered in dimples and all. Did my research and came across Milwaukee type 20 jack. Still made in Milwaukee, the instructions are still in the 1940s font. Super simple if I have to work on it. I've had 6 yrs now, no problems what so ever. Was not cheap....but neither is a ER visit....or worse.
