Scissor vs floor jack
Ok – Please help,
This is not directly related to Nissan trucks, but your advice would keep me working on mine
The past day I took my case jack (small floor jack) out to jack up the truck – and hydraulic fluid was all over the place (It was acting up a couple weeks before – it wouldn’t depress all the way by itself). What is the deal with these things? I previously owned a craftsman 3 ½ ton floor jack – after 4 years it leaked like crazy. Next, I bought this 2 ½ ton case jack (don’t recall the name) bc it would fit in my bed box. Its been another 4 years and now this one is spitting up. I’ve never repaired one – so I don’t know if its worth it. But does anyone now a decent brand of floor jack that doesn’t leak or is easy to maintain? I was forced to use a scissor jack from my car, which I don’t mind using – but it takes forever to get it high enough to put a stand under the truck.
