    What's a good floor jack?

    In the market for a new floor jack. I would like something strong and sturdy. So far on Amazon I seen the powerzone 3 ton jack is the best seller and good reviews. Only problem is that some people complain the the valve leaks. Anyone have any recommendations?

    I'm sure you know this but just in case someone else who does not looks at your post I feel that someone needs to say it...don't forget to spend some money on good jack stands! The jack is only used to get the car up in the air. Never, ever put your body under the car unless is it supported by jack stands with the weight of the car on the stands and off of the jack. Still way too many people getting hurt on a regular basis by either not using stands at all or by trying to use something like a wood block or cinder block that are not the right tools for the job. When a hydraulic jack fails under pressure it is an immediate and catastrophic event with no warning. Be safe.
