Consumer Review
Terrible Jack, Falsely advertised Warranty
This is one badly made jack combined with false advertising on their Lifetime warranty.

Jack came in quickly from amazon. Looked pretty. Made in China. I did the bleed routine but found the first 1/4th of the lever movement was flat spot/ free play, and didn’t do any actual lifting. I attributed this to a quirky jack and it didn’t bother me much especially due to the lifetime warranty. If it wasn’t for the warranty, it would’ve gone right back. Jack worked great otherwise though the force required was a good bit more than any other Jack I’ve had, even with the long lever. It was way more effort than the $100 Torin Race Jack sold here on amazon. The effort itself didnt bother me, but gave me the feeling that the leverage was wrong and the piston assembly was under undue stress. Kinda like it was trying to lift more than it should per stroke to aid quicker lifting. I could feel the lever bending, something Ive never experienced in any of the jacks Ive used before. All the…

Excellent price for an excellent chair
We needed a way to get my 90 year old, 145 lb. mother from her downstairs apartment to our residence upstairs, as her knees are very athritic and she couldn’t take the stairs. We purchased this chair right before Thanksgiving and have used it on numerous occasions already. You obviously need 2 strong people to lift the person in the chair, but the chair itself is lightweight so it doesn’t add on extra pounds. Be advised that you will probably need to put a pillow behind the small of the person’s back because you are lifting and leaning the chair back when you go upstairs, etc. and at least for a 90-year old, it was uncomfortable without the pillow. But I highly recommend this chair especially for the price, as the actual version used by ambulances, etc. is thousands of dollars. This was definitely worth the money.
