  • Floor jack

    I'm a recent convert to the Costco way of life. I'd take a root canal over shopping any day. But show up mid week with a strict shopping list and a couple hundred bucks and the budget is saved! Whoo Hoo!
    Their auto related aisle has some decent stuff. In December I picked up an ARCAN XL35R Professional Low Profile Jack. It not only sounds impressive but this thing does the job. Three and a half inches at low height fits under a Mini, 21" at max height. What looks to be 1/4" plate construction, weighs 100 pounds on it's own. Nice wide stance on the steel front wheels, rear casters could be heavier in my opinion. The valve is controlled by the jack handle. Arcan seems to be a bit shy about the country of origin, even in the Manual del usuario.
    $90 well spent. Sold out at 205th and Aurora, Costco had a dozen or so at the 4th south store on Saturday.
