Quick Jack

Has anyone bought a Quick Jack about 1700 bucks with hydraulics for what looks to be a very portable easy to use medium weight lift.

Raymonds Performance uses them at the optima events... They seem to like them.

Is there an equivalent of these for heavier vehicles? I see the highest rated is only for 5,000 lbs. I also have a Tahoe which is probably around 8,000 lbs so I'd need something bigger.

I'm curious on these as well.

On my GTR forum there are two guys that use them there and the Camaro is about the same weight. I can post a link to that site were the guy does a shake test while the car is at full height if you guys like.

They list a 7k but it's not available yet. Sales rep said sometime before the end of the year...

I saw one in person this weekend, as a Spec Miata team was using one. Looked sturdy and easy enough to use.

I have them, best things I have bought in a while. Plus you can take it to the track.

Can you anchor them to the floor or are they meant to be portable?

I've heard people say there are two versions. A plug in electric and then a mini generator for the track? I did not really have the time to check in on the one I saw at the track last weekend. I still want one for my house, but would be nice to bring to the track in a few years when I actually get a truck/trailer combo
