The Powerzone 38044 3 Ton Aluminium and Steel Garage Jack is currently one of the best-selling Jacks on the market.
Its popularity is largely due to the fact it’s a high quality 3 Ton Jack with an extremely affordable price tag.
Don’t be put off by the fact this Jack is built in China by Milestone Tools put you off, the vast majority of Garage Jacks are now manufactured outside of the US and in fact nearly all are produced in China.
The Powerzone 380044 is built from Aluminium and Steel, which means it is relatively lightweight to move around (the frame is composed of Aluminium), but is still sturdy enough where it matters by employing a lift arm made from steel.
As mentioned due to its composition being part Aluminium (the frame) it weighs in at just under 60 pounds, when you compare this to The Hein-Werner 3 Ton Jack at 123 pounds, it’s almost half its weight!
Whilst not labelled as a low profile jack it has a min height of 4″ so it will suit many lowered vehicles.
