Rated 5 out of 5 by TryandBuy Well worth the money
I was impressed with how well it was built. The jack is low profile to easily get underneath low vehicles. It did not bleed down, even though I let the car sit on the jack for more than a day.
Excellent value for the money.
Rated 2 out of 5 by JackBlackBlack Worked well while it lasted
Got this jack for $44 from the local Walmart. Worked well for it's purpose as a low profile jack for my lowered car (car is ~1.75 tons). Used it maybe 4 times during the year, and always used jack stands, only once or twice leaving a full load on the jack for a few minutes. Now the lift arm will not raise from it's fully lowered position. Replaced the jack fluid, purged air from the system, still doesn't raise at all. Probably a blown seal or internal component failure that won't be worth repairing.
Checking the manufacture date, it was made in March 2010, and I bought it in May 2010. It failed in July 2011, so after a little over a year of light use, right after the 1 year warranty ends.
I'd recommend getting something more reliable at a higher price. You get what you pay for, and I guess the year of service I got was worth the $44 I paid. Still mad though.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SaltySam Nice little jack
Floor jacks are handy to have if you ever have to work on your car at home. This one is designed for the occasional user. I'll rotate my own tires and change out them for winter/summer use. The only reason that I rated this 4 instead of 5 stars is because the jacking handle and linkage are very loose causing about half of the jacking motion to be lost in sloppyness. The benefit of this jack over others I've looked at is the higher lifting height and low profile. The price is better than other sites if purchased on line. In store, the jack was nearly twice the price!

Lasted about a year and slowly lowers after about a minute or 2. Use jack stands when using this thing.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jdek Great Product!
This is a great product. I actually changed brake pads in my car using this jack. It worked great. I even left the car just on this jack to change the last brake pad. Jack stands should always be used, but this is how good this jack is. The price is great and it weighs around 30 lbs. The handle is a little short, but it has a bend in it so you can always jack up the car even if there is less clearance.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JakeNGinger Great for low cars
Built good and solid. To make it last ,,make sure you use jack-stands to keep car solid to the ground. If you keep on only using the jack-- it could wear down the over time and especially if you leave it on the jack for long periods of time.
My friend has had this jack for over 5 years now. Great!
Rated 1 out of 5 by jeepdoctor Not lifting after three uses.
Purchased this jack to replace the "MVP" brand jack that I purchased from Walmart six years ago. I liked the robust looks and solid construction of this Torin jack and thought it would be a decent replacement. However after three uses the jack will not raise more than about four inches. The jack has plenty of hydraulic fluid and there are no signs of leaks. I opened the the filler plug to let any air out of the system. Still no help, jack refuses to lift. Its a real shame because its a real nice jack, only thing I didnt like besides the lack of durability was the short pump handle and its limited travel. Hope you have better luck with it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by longboy A waste of money
I bought this jack to replace the factory one. tried it after 3 days sitting in my truck it would not lift my wheel at all. As soon as it touched the truck it would not lift. bringing it back tomorrow early. so don't waste your time with this jack....................................
Rated 5 out of 5 by Prady15 Great Jack
Great jack for my Audi A6 and very easy to use. Jacks my car in seconds and easy to keep in trunk. No issues at all. Worth spending the money
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mcdrus Waste of Money!!
Has an 18" handle that provides ZERO leverage!! Can't reach under a pickup.....handle too short to lift anything larger than a tricycle. Waste of time and money to purchase. Tried to use it the first time to change a tire....re-boxed it immediately and took it back. VERY disappointed in this product.
Rated 3 out of 5 by SP360D its ok...but get torins 3 ton jack.
This 2 ton low profile torin jack had no problem lifting my 4500lb Durango....but the handle is only about 3 ft long;because of the short handle it requires you use small strokes to jack up your car. Also, the handle slides into its space, but doesn't lock. You turn it left or right to place it in an open notch. Also, the handle doesn't turn to release pressure to lower your car as on most jacks, you have to turn a small lever under the handle to drop the vehicle...and you have to turn it slowly or your car will come slamming down. I recommend(if your car isn't lowered like a vette, viper), the 3 ton jack from torin. Its got a longer handle, and it releases pressure by turning the handle.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 21GPE it works fine
works well for the price. My last jack lasted about 5 years and I think I'll get at least that from this one.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sincereny2 Used it about 4 times then seal started leaking now can lift anything
Rated 5 out of 5 by UncleD1 Very nice jack, very stable! Much wider!
My old 2 ton jack would go down as fast as I could jack upward. After filling with hydraulic fluid and purging, still no good. Must have had a torn seal. JUNK!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Macmaven Never buy Torin...
I've had 3...yes 3 of these over the past 5 years. Mainly because I needed one in a pinch when nothing else was open. Each time I had renewed hopes of a jack that actually didn't leak. So much for that. The first one that I had, gave me about a month of service before it started leaking. The last two, began leaking from the seal after a couple of uses over a weekend. If you buy one of these, just don't throw out the box, so that you will have it when return time comes around. And make sure that you use jack stands. I wouldn't think about getting under a car with this jack, or any other for that matter, but especially this one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thisismom Exactly what my son needed
Bought for my son for his birthday. I had purchased another jack from a different store but it did not meet the needs of his lowered VW. This is exactly what he needed and it was a better value than the one I previously bought.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wil34 Great tool lots of power easy to use
Didn't know about low profile jacks found out how handy it is and how practical it is
Rated 2 out of 5 by DonoJack Toy
To say this is a 2.5 ton Jack is a stretch. It can lift one wheel of light car but it won't get a truck's wheel off the ground. The handle is short for a floor jack and the grip slips when you try to let the jack down. I returned it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by coachmoe1 Not worth buying
I purchased this jack in July 2012. By June of 2013 the jack was declared DOA. I'm a DIY'r and probably used the jack a total of a 8 times over that 11 month period. The jack lost pressure. I checked hydraulic fluid, it was fine. Changed O-rings and still no good. I would not recommend this jack as it could result in a fatality. Beware!
Rated 5 out of 5 by teneillv Great
I recognize the build quality is a little poor, but this is a great value.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ladyyumyum Used the jack once, it does its job. However, the jack lowers too quickly unless you slowly turn the release valve. I mean real slow. Overall I'm happy so far.
