i hear ya, I was already looking to upgrade to a 3 ton from the 2 and 1/4......the "explosion" of the 2 and 1/4 just made me get it sooner. i've only used it twice now, but i'm verry happy i purchased it, it makes a world a difference

Thumbs up HD jacks

I picked up 2 Astroline floor jacks back in the 80,s One is 30 years old and the other is 25. Both still work great and will pick up the front of my tractor with ease. I think i paid around 200 bucks each but well worth the money. The only problem with heavy duty jacks are their weight. mine are around 90 lbs per.

We have 2 of the Harbor freight 2 1/4 ton steel HD floorjacks at work and they have been abused beyond their design for 5 years now, They are still leak free and work nice. I just bought the same one for home use.

Well the only time they have let me down was my impact wrench was supposed to take out my crank shaft bolt and it didn't, but my jack works awesome and the impact for the most part is functional.

did it actually break/malfunction, or was it just not strong enough? i have looked into getting an impact from them, and they sell a wide range of torque capacities.
