Damn, that is the cheapest low profile jack I've seen. I may get it even if I missed the sale.

I have that one. It is okay for the money, but it takes alot of pumps to get it up. (That didn't sound right)

I have this one. It sucks. It is only low profile where the head is. The body itself is quite thick. For example, I could not get it under the front of my car without scraping the fascia. Also, the handle is very short and you need an unobstructed range of motion to get it to work. The first 15-20 degrees of handle movement does nothing so no short pumps if you have to wedge it in somewhere.

I would not buy this jack again. I actually had to use the portable jack from my wife's tahoe one time because this one would not work where I needed it to.

I purchased this on black Friday and quickly returned it, it's a POS. Barely fits under the car, short bar and took forever to pump.

I have since bought this jack and love it:

I almost got killed by a harbor frieght jack, while I was positioning my jackstands it just popped and fell. Be very cautious with those.
