Project Farm tests 3-Ton Floor Jacks including Snap On’s $1,000 model versus floor jacks from Daytona, Pittsburgh, Arcan, Black Jack, ESCO, and Home Depot’s Husky and Maasdam. Todd also addresses how to know when your floor jack needs oil, and how to fill your floor jack when it needs it.
Each floor jack is tested for:
- maximum lift (3 ton rating),
- bleed-off under load,
- rolling resistance while under load,
- jack handle and jack efficiency under load,
- handle pressure to lift 3 tons,
- number of jack strokes to lift vehicle,
- holding 3,000 pounds for 24 hours, and
- jack build construction quality.
Editor’s Note: Project Farm purchased all of the floor jacks to ensure an unbiased review.
