The Powerzone 380033 floor jack weighs in at only 19 pounds but still receives decent reviews. The jack has a maximum lifting capacity of 2 tons, or 4,000 lbs and is made out of steel. With a maximum lifting height of only 13 inches I wouldn’t recommend this jack for a SUV owner, but it will work fine for a small passenger car. The jack is 17 inches in length (front to back), 5 inches in width (wheel to wheel), 5 1/4 inches in height when fully lowered (bottom of wheel to top of saddle). The handle is removable making storing it quite easy.
One of the primary complaints about this floor jack is that the release valve is touchy and tends to lower the vehicle rapidly if you don’t concentrate on how much you turn the valve.
LIFTING CAPACITY: 2 tons (4,000 pounds)
WEIGHT: 49 pounds
LIFTING RANGE: 3-1/2″ to 19-1/4″
BODY DESIGN: The JEGS 80006 floor jack design is inspired by Sprint Cup’s lightweight pit jacks. Although its manufactured in China out of high quality aluminum, the fit and finish is top notch. The chassis is 26-1/2″ long and 14-0″ wide with fixed front wheels and rear caster style wheels. The side plates of the jack are tapered from back to front giving the front of the floor jack a very low profile. The highest point of the frame (near the handle and hydraulic assembly) is about 6″ off the ground. The saddle is padded using a rubber disc and can be rotated 360 degrees. There are two side grip handles for easy floor jack positioning and carrying.
LIFTING AND LOWERING SYSTEM DESIGN: The JEGS 80006 floor jack reaches full lift height with only 5-6 full handle strokes. The hydraulic valve is opened and closed by twisting the removable two-piece handle. The lower portion of the handle is padded to avoid damaging the vehicle if contact is made while lifting. The upper portion of the handle has a knurled grip to lessen the likelihood of slippage.

- Light weight makes it easier to carry
- Raises to full height in 5-6 full strokes

LIFTING CAPACITY: 3-1/2 tons (7,000 pounds)
WEIGHT: 85 pounds
LIFTING RANGE: 5-1/2″ to 22-0″
BODY DESIGN: The Blackhawk B6350 floor jack is made out of heavy duty steel and is manufactured in China by Banner (now owned by Shinn Fu America Corporation). It has the standard trolley design with fixed from wheels and rear caster style wheels.Most reviews about this jack say that it’s a decent floor jack for the money. The rubber pad simply rests on the saddle and some users have experienced it jumping out of the saddle when rolling over rough surfaces. The saddle swivels and is removable leaving a hole in the jack that is 1-1/8″ in diameter.
LIFTING AND LOWERING SYSTEM DESIGN: One unique feature of this floor jack is that it lifts very rapidly to the load. Once it senses a load the raising is slower. The removable two-piece handle is padded on the lower portion so that the vehicle is not damaged if the handle makes contact with it. When in the fully raised position, the handle still sticks out at a slight angle and does not go completely vertical. It takes in between 20-25 strokes of the handle for the lift to reach the maximum height of 22″.
- Heavy duty steel construction with rolled side plates
- Reasonable price
- Quick lift to load system
- Maximum lift height of 22″
- Built in safety valve and bypass device
- Padded handle to avoid damaging vehicle
- Rubber saddle disc is not secured
- Rear caster wheels are small and can get caught on small objects when rolling
- The handle range is limited and does not raise to a full vertical position.
The OTC Motorcycle Jack has one of the lowest minimum lifting heights of all the jacks in its class, but can still lift bikes as high as 16-3/4″. With a maximum rated lifting capacity of 1,500 pounds this can lift the heaviest of bikes. The support skids are 17 inch long, 3 inches wide, and 12″ apart (from center to center) allowing it to lift the widest of cruisers. Its steel construction gives it both rigidity and stability and it comes with a two year limited warranty. The removable handle provides 360 Degree access to lifted load and other features include foot pedal release, locking rear casters, automatic 4-position safety locking mechanism, and two ratcheting tie down straps for safety. The primary complaint associated with this lift is that the rate of decent is not easily controlled with the foot pedal design.

- Min Lift Height: 3-1/2″
- Max Lift Height: 16-3/4″
