Default Need another jack?

Saw via email Harbor Freight has free shipping on items over $99. Got me thinking about my collection of jacks and adding another one.
Saw this jack for sale and I am going to give it a try. My very expensive low clearance, long reach jack slowly lets the car down and weighs a lot anyways.
The last cheap jack from Harbor Freight has been my go to jack for a while. The handle finally needed replacement and so here I am.

I'm betting this one will be worth trying.

That is the one I am replacing. Not bad all things considered. The two piece handle finally gave out and in going to replace it I saw the one first mentioned.
Either way, they seem to be my go to jack except for my pickup.
Free shipping over $99 now.

Looks like it may not come with a jack pad but I didn't even really check. I use the one off my $300 dollar jack that is not working. One expensive jack pad....

I bought a bunch of hockey pucks when they were on clearance. They work great as a jack pad.

I haven't seen a $59 coupon (maybe it's in their email or print ad?), but there have been $69 coupons in the HF ad in the back of C&D and R&T magazines. Joe, if you need a $69 coupon, I've got those lying around and I think they are good until September.

The harder part has been to find cheap hockey pucks around here...

Go to HF's website and sign up for their email coupons [not the inside track club]. I got the $59 coupon via email.

I got 5 hucky pucks a couple years ago at the end of hockey season - they were $1 each. They sell cheap in the Texas heat

Canyon, thanks, but found a $60 coupon in the HF ad in AW. I just glance over those usually.
