If you need a Floor Jack, look no further than Costco! I got this Arcan XL35R Floor Jack from Costco, when I bought my floormats. The price for the Arcan jack was $100, which was a great deal on a floor jack of this quality and weight capacity. (Actually we renewed our Costco membership just to get this jack, so in essence it was $150.) The Arcan Floor Jack is rated for 3.5 Tons or 7000 pounds.
So far I have only used the Arcan Floor Jack to lift-up my Mom’s Chrysler van (aka the Crapler). However, I can already tell what a great jack this is. Lifting the van was like, “cutting through butter” as they say. It lifted the backside up with ease and little effort on my part. Even a lot of professional floor jacks I have used require a little muscle to get the vehicle up. It has a low lift height of 3.5 inches, and goes to almost 21 inches. The design also makes it easy to get under the rear tire of the van, where as most jacks might get stuck. I am extremely impressed with the quality of the Arcan.
Best part about it, if the floor jack ever breaks, you can return it to Costco for a refund or exchange. No Questions Asked! Even a few years later if it breaks, they will accept a return. Costco has has a great return policy and makes sure it’s customers are happy with all purchases.
My only complaints are it is a bit heavy at a little over 100 pounds. I hurt my back getting it out of the car and out of the box. Of course, I would rather have a solid floor jack made from good metal and steel, rather than a cheap one.
I don’t think I could have found a better floor jack, at a better price. Even with having to renew our Costco membership for $50, I still think it was worth that cost. If you are in the market for a floor jack, I highly recommend you buy an Arcan XL35R from Costco. If you know someone who needs a floor jack, this might make a great Christmas gift. Of course, you might have a difficult time getting it under the tree.
Recently at a car show I saw a company that sells professional equipment to auto repair shops selling the Arcan XL35, which is basically the same model, for $160. Most stores and retailers I have seen sell it for that price or more. Kind of crazy Costco offers such a good price and return policy on a floor jack like the Arcan. I would even say the Arcan XL35R is the Best Floor Jack I have ever used and probably one the Best Deals in tools or equipment you will find out there.
