Full Answer

The Powerzone 380044 has a lightweight aluminum frame and a steel lift arm, which gives it a weight of about 60 pounds. The lift range goes from about 4 inches to more than 18 inches, and the dual hydraulics and long handle help to lift a vehicle in only about six pumps. To bring the vehicle down, a person can simply twist the handle for a slow, controlled descent.

The Arcan ALJ3T is a professional quality floor jack with a lift range of 3 3/4 inch to 18 1/8 inch. This is an ideal jack for lower vehicles, and can handle SUVs and pickups. This floor jack has dual pump pistons and a two piece handle, which makes it ideal for small garages, as only half the handle is necessary. The controllable descent is slow, and since aluminum is the main material of this jack, the Arcan ALJ3T is lightweight and portable. As of 2015, the Arcan ALJ3T has an average rating of 4.7 out of five stars at Amazon.com.
