Thanks, just bought one.

When I was buying mine I read many reports of failures from various 'cheaper' makes such as Clark.  All the jacks I found all looked the same as these just in different colours or different branding.

Its a nice looking jack but you could buy over 3 of these for the same price. I dont really see the point of buying an aluminium jack if its going to be actually heavier, bigger and have a lower lifting capacity than the one in this link? I bought one of these plus a hockey puck for £35. Tried it on the car this week to get the wheel off and it was great

The one recommended is quite light with a handy carry handle, extremely quick and the two part handle is useful for tight spots. It's worth the extra imo depending on your individual budget.

I started with a cheap one. It blew up and poured hydrolic oil everywhere. Then cost me a fortune to return to get a refund but the seller would not cover all the return delivery costs.

I'm happy with it and the best thing is I can fit it inside the lowest drawer of my Halfords tool chest.
