This jack is very good I like is very useful
Great extra low profile jack for a lowered floor wheelchair van.
March 10, 2016
Great low profile jack. I have a lowered floor wheelchair van. If I have a flat tire on the front of the van, the van would be sitting so low I wouldn't be able to get any other Jack's underneath the van to Jack it up to change the flat. This Jack's profile is low enough to get under the van with a flat tire so I can change the flat. It also raises in just a few pumps of the handle......very sturdy and wide base.
Low profile jack is functional and pretty, it's durable and professional looking

My son takes this jack for his drifting days, and it has sustained some abuse and it is still working like champ.He has a 370z and a 240SX modified / lower, so this hack is perfect to get under those low cars and do the job.

This jack worked perfectly. We use it to install Stand-up tanning bed side and doors and it has the right height to make it work so we can releive the stress of human weakness and breakage.

Awesome jack. Fits perfect under my lowered g35.
Got my money's worth
October 16, 2017
Lifts my 3000+ SUV with ease. I also like the extender reach feature...for using with a higher to/ from ground vehicle. I've used it, my friends have used it....we like the value and quality of construction of the jack over all. I'd say a very good purchase.
Torin T83006 Service Jack
January 9, 2017
Works as promised, arrived very quickly, and is exactly what I needed.
December 25, 2015
Use this to lift my 2004 GMC Envoy.
October 19, 2015
Well- it is good jack- used it about 10 times so far to lift nissan xterra- does the job well. Works good and saves a lot of time. It leaks a little bit when use- but I had the same behaviour with craftsman jack from sears- I guess it is Ok. People complained it comes without oil in it- did not happen in my case but the box had a little oil spots. As I said it is leaking a little bit- not really too much, and I can leave with it. I better will add oil than pay extra 100 bucks for another one.
Surprisingly a good little jack
July 15, 2015
Surprisingly a good little jack. Bought it for my trucks mainly but tried it on my motor homes too.. 28 foot and 36 foot. Will pick up both wheels on trucks and one wheel on motor homes. No leaks and a hefty but manageable weight. I will buy a couple more just to keep one in vehicles I use the most. Highly recommend
Excellent Choice for Both Low Ground Clearance Cars and High SUVs
February 16, 2015
It was hard to tell, but the long red "neck" is actually a seperate piece between the black plate on top and the rest of the jack. So this jack actually works for both my 06 Acura TL (with little ground clearance) and my 04 Toyota Highlander SUV. I've used it repeatedly now for oil changes, transmission fluid changes, tire rotations, radiator flushes, etc. and has been incredibly good. I have a smaller 2-ton that I've been using for the last several years, and now wish that I had purchased this years ago. Having both,though, lets me jack up both the front and the back of the car, making tire rotations much easier. Worth every penny and seems solidly built for years of use.

I've had this jack for nearly a year now, and it performs well. I have an '02 Honda Civic, and a '99 Chevrolet S10 for which I use this jack for regular maintenance (oil changes, belt changes, etc.).

vERY NICE JACK THAT CAN GET UNDER MY PORSCHE 911
January 21, 2016
Just what I was looking for and at a decent price.

February 11, 2015
Over all a nice jack and the locking pin feature is really nice and a feature that I've never seen on another jack. The downs are the decals have fallen off for the most part and the lifting pad doesn't swivel so if you need to rotate the jack once it's engaged it can be difficult to do. I bought it because I have a corvette and my current jack was to tall. Nice jack for the money
The jack appears to be built well.
October 5, 2017
I have not used it yet but it arrived in a real beat up box that was heavily taped and extra nylon straps so the box would not fall apart or possibly it was opened once before but lots of extra tape and nylon straps keeping the box together. The right rear caster was not attached it was laying in the box with a poorly designed wheel bearing and the nut on the caster as if someone did not feel like attaching it to the frame and just threw it into the box the only thing I did not find was the washer, it did not come apart because the nut and bearing was attached to the caster. The neck that comes with the jack looked used it had lots of minor scratches and tiny dings but nothing that will affect the performance.It does look solid, hopefully it will lift my van if I need to change a tire while I'm on the road, if not I have Triple A towing that can change my tire. I have a four ton floor jack at my house which I use so this jack is only for possible flat tires I might get on the road.
The extension is really useful. It lifts my Nissan frontier with no problems
September 6, 2017
The extension is really useful. It lifts my Nissan frontier with no problems. The only down side is the bar you pump with is kinda short and it's a little hard to push. But it works.
Does the job well
June 17, 2017
Does the job well. Seems a tad weak jacking up, but it lifted my Yukon XL Denali and it held it up well. It is a tad heavy, but not too bad. What I don't like is that it doesn't have a place to stow the handle bar. But if that's the only flaw, it's easy to live with.
but it still works fine (just makes it harder to move)
October 22, 2015
The little nub on the handle broke, but it still works fine (just makes it harder to move). I used this (almost exclusively at times) to put a 3.5-inch lift kit on my Jeep and it worked great for that.
Great for the price, very heavy.
October 21, 2014
This jack is probably the highest lifting jack I have seen. It drops well to ground and when not using the extension on the jack plate it will fit under the 2005 Scion xB which is very low, much lower than the average car. I use this jack to get my vehicles raised onto the highest setting of my jack stands which other jacks don't do. It is very heavy and will probably last a lifetime i hope. This jack is NOT a racing type jack that is lightweight, it is NOT a "quick" pump jack but it will lift 6000 lbs and the racing jacks usually won't for this price point. I would recommend.
First one was a dud, but the second one as great!
June 26, 2014
Upon first arrival, the inside of the package was dripping with oil and the main bar hole was all bent out of shape. It looked like someone banged it with a hammer. I was very disappointed. But I put in an exchange request with amazon and they had the UPS guy come pick it up and they delivered another one.The second jack that arrived was great! Nothing was broken, the package was solid, and everything worked great right from the start! The instructions do not give good pictures, but once I figured out what the leak valve was, I let some air out and then tightened it up and it was good to go. The lift works like a charm.Basically, I agree with all the other reviews that the quality department must be pretty awful at Torin. It seems hit or miss. Luckily my second one was a hit and the quality is great.

Can't Maintain Pressure
January 23, 2016
Very heavy floor jack. I like the rubberized grip on the contact patch of the jack. It comes with a steel bar that can be threaded through the jack neck of the jack when it's in the lifted position which is an awesome safety feature, that I've never seen before, which catches the jack if it ever starts to loose pressure and fall. This feature needed thought because this jack Can Not maintain pressure. If it's the only thing under the car and the steel bar isn't used, it will slowly start to fall. I don't hate this jack, but I wouldn't buy again

April 18, 2016
Upsides - price, it works, pretty sturdy. Down sides - it didn't come filled with oil so you'll need to buy that ($4), and the release mechanism is separate from the pump mechanism - which might get annoying having to go back and forth. But it was sturdy built and good for the money. I think I would personally pay more for a better one. I returned it and got a Torin bottle jack.
I will be looking to replace the handle with a more sturdy version. The jack itself seems to work well
January 28, 2016
Mediocre quality. The jack handle flexes rather a lot when working the hydraulic pump. I will be looking to replace the handle with a more sturdy version. The jack itself seems to work well, but does not extend fully when lifting my truck.
You get what you pay for
August 30, 2014
This jack is cheap and it shows. It takes forever to jack a vehicle and is often too high to fit under cars. I don't trust the jack at all and it slipped off the frame of my car last week and the scissor jack I had under the frame kept the car from falling. I bought a Sears floor jack to replace this one because i don't want to die under a car
Good jack, but not the sturdiest ever
June 25, 2014
I will start out by saying that this jack has no problem lifting my Chevrolet Trailblazer high enough to put jack stands under it at their tallest setting. The mechanism is smooth and the release/lowering is easy to control. There isn't a lot to say about the performance of the jack, other than that it works exactly as it should.The problem I have with this jack is the wheels. One of the bolts holding the turning wheels bent over when lowering the car, so it appears that the bolts they use are not rated for the load that they will experience. I am going to grind the top off of the bolt and replace it with a new one, but I shouldn't have this problem.
SUV JACK? REALLY? IT STRUGGLES WITH MY ACCORD!
May 23, 2014
It can lift my accord, but I need a wrench to tighten the pressure knob. Without the wrench the lift only goes up about 4 inches before it is overcome by the weight of the car. It works, but it's annoying.
Decent jack for the money
June 14, 2010
No fault of the manufacturer, but when I received the box all four steel wheels on the jack had worn through the bottom until they were literally poking out! Unfortunately I think during all that rough handling the rubber nipple that fits into the oil reservoir fill hole was lost which caused my jack not to work at all when I received it. I wasn't able to determine why it didn't work so I called Torin customer service... after about 45 minutes (!) on the phone with them they identified the rubber nipple was missing and shipped me a replacement.Unfortunately, as was stated before, oil levels in the jack were low which necessitated a trip to the auto parts store for hydraulic jack fluid before installing the replacement nipple.After filling oil and replacing the fill reservoir nipple it works as advertised, although it's very slow to raise. It takes about 20 pumps to reach full height, although it's very sturdy during the lifting/lowering process.Other mentioned the lack of aesthetics and that's no lie. Granted, it's a floor jack and not designed for beauty. Having said that, it's definitely not a "looker" with sloppy (but strong) welds, chips in the paint, etc. I didn't buy it for looks, I bought it because it's among the tallest jacks available for <$100US.

Garbage, and quite likely unsafe
August 23, 2017
Thge small casters are designed to be loose and wobble. There's a gap due to the bolt size. I wouldn't trust this not to shift under the weight of a vehicle when lifting it. I also have no faith the casters can hold anywhere near the weight of a vehicle as the "bearings" sandwiched between the caster and plate are steel balls in a plastic washer.

Does the job but it doesn't have any handle or anything to pick it up by so its a bit awkward to transport.
and does not like to stay up when under pressure
April 23, 2016
The first one I got was defective, the second one only raises my car a foot and a half, and does not like to stay up when under pressure. This is suppose to be a 3 ton jack, and I am simply just trying to lift a Hyundai Accent.
Wanted to like it but it started to leak oil after about 6 months
April 9, 2016
I wanted to like this jack and while it worked it was great but after a few months of occasional use it has started to leak oil and won't lift more than about a quarter of the way up. Like I said I wanted to like it but now it is worthless after less than a dozen uses, so I am off to try and find a better one.
Came broken right out of the box.
June 20, 2015
Could be good, but came broken right out of the box. Perhaps it's a fluke, but it's pretty annoying to have to return something this heavy and massive back to Amazon.The brackets that hold the wheels up were broken. See pics. Either a bad welding job or a bad idea to have it be welded in the first place. Should be one solid piece.
November 12, 2013
Seems to be working ok, but the scary thing is that the casters stop pivotting now, so the Jack can't compensate for it's movement, the entire caster is stuck in place and it just grinds out the concrete underneath as the car is being lowered. Feels like if this keeps up, it the jack will fail soon.

Nice looking jack but that's about it
April 10, 2017
Nice looking jack but that's about it. The teeth don't line up right so when their is weight on it the gears jump teeth and I got to mess with it for ever to get it down and it takes 40 freaking pumps to even reach the car could have got better quality at Walmart
Looks cool but is garbage... don't waste your money.
April 7, 2017
Worked great when first purchased, for a couple months. Then all of a sudden just stopped working properly. Feels like it can't build enough pressure to get past a certain height... making it completely useless. Don't waste your money on this... pay a little more for better quality.
Fantasic Paper Weight
October 26, 2016
I bought this as a Xmas gift for my son. Thrilled it was low and seemed great. The second time he tried to use it--no go. I just found out 10 months later he jacked it up after opening it and then used it once for the car. I was so upset and disgusted at: The money spent, Useless jack and due to being his xmas gift that he didn't want to tell me it is Junk!!!!

October 24, 2016
bought it in december, started using it in january. broke about a month ago, it will not hold pressure, it is unsafe and poorly made. cant even last a year of infrequent use.
Looked great, worked once before it started leaking
September 26, 2016
Looked great, worked once before it started leaking, contacted the 1800 number, was told I need to bleed the jack, they took my email address and said they would send instructions, never did. Don't buy this jack, you know something is not right when it comes with a metal bar to lock the jack in an elevated position.
March 14, 2016
only lasted 4 months. the hydraulic fluid doesn't seem to hold up the jack arm anymore.
Worked great.... until the jack wheel FELL OFF!
September 28, 2017
The jack initially worked fine, but after 4 or so uses, one of the pivoting wheels fell completely off. Thank God no one was hurt! It looks as if it was due to a bad welding job - see the attached pictures. There is another review I saw here on Amazon that looked like the same manufacturing defect. Before it broke, I liked the way it operated. The removable extra long neck was very handy for my Minivan and the removable handle was nice for storage.
August 25, 2017
Absolutely garbage. The spot you put the handle in was mangled and bent beyond repair. DONOT BUY!

September 15, 2016
Horrible. I haven't even had this jack for a year and it already fails to hold up one corner of a car. Spend the extra money and get a better jack.
Leaks and slowly loses pressure
September 5, 2016
I bought this jack to replace my old one that was 20 years old as it was rusting and failing when ever you tried to put weight on it This jack leaks ... I primed it when I first got it ( as the directions say to get out any air that maybe trapped ) and I went to use it yesterday on my 2002 WJ Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited as I was going to change my engine mounts ... I jacked my Jeep up and went into the house to get a socket I forgot to grab and came back out less than 10 minutes later and my jack lowered down about 2 inches .... Now I needed to get the mounts put in and I did but this jack was a pain.. I had to stop what I was doing every few minutes and pump the jack back up because it would slowly start losing pressure .. Your better off spending an extra $20-$30 and getting a jack that works , this will be considered my junk jack for tires and nothing else as I now have to go out and spend money on another jack so save yourself the headache and money and just get a better one
AVOID. Spend more money on a more high quality jack.
August 27, 2016
Please avoid this jack. It has failed on me twice during one attempted use. The jack isn't as sturdy as you would think. The metal seems kind of soft and when it failed on me my car fell on the jack and scratched and dented it all up so I doubt I could even return it if I somehow managed to lug it to the mailing store... The portion of the jack that makes contact with the vehicle isn't kind to the vehicle either... Spend more on a higher quality jack that will be much safer than this one. You don't want it falling on you like it did on me...EDIT: Also the first glance at the product I noticed the jack does not sit level. The four wheels all do not touch the ground... Not a good sign of quality.
October 22, 2013
Had for about 1.3 years. Used it about maybe 10 - 12 times. Cylinder started leaking. Got worse. Unless they change the design, have better quality control, I would not advise buying one of these. Lifted F150 4x4 fine. Good for trucks or vehicles high off the ground. But it is junk cause it leaks. You wonder if the people who make products use or test them? They ever hear of reliability engineering?
