We got one a few years back, maybe Summt. Personally, I don't care what brand it is as long as it holds the car I am under.

If this link works this is the one I have from Harbor Freight. If it doesn't the item number is 92782-8VGA. Caught it on sale for 149.95. Has worked very well for me so far.

Thanks for the help!!! I'd heard the Sears were junk and the Harbor Freights were better but needed some advice.By the way i just bought a electric hoist from HF Saturday for $99.99 that lifts 880# seemed cheap if anybodys looking for one. Its regularly $129.99 but its on sale and i got a 2 year replacement warranty for $20.

Anything you buy from HF for lifting or holding up, get way more capacity than you'll ever use. OVER buy to be safe. It IS Chinese Junk afterall....... ops: ops: ops:
