    Awesome but now I need one of the digital things to calibrate mine. Does HF have those?

    We use those on our tow trucks, the get abused and left out in the rain.work great. Check the fluid and bleed it before first use.should last average user forever..

    I broke an HF impact socket I'd had for more than 10 years. They gave me another one at the store.

    I have a very strong belief in using them when called for, and that they be accurate when used. I had a dead-weight calibration stand I made years ago, gave it to my grandson once I had established the HF digital thingy clamped in a vise was as accurate--and a heck of a lot easier to use...

    What he said. Buy a bottle of jack oil and top it off and bleed the system before first use. Only negative reviews I read was that over time it doesn't lift as effective, but adding oil and bleeding negates that.

    The destructions with it go over the procedure, but it's easy. The cylinder which does all the pumping and holds the fluid has a fill hole on top. Take out that bolt and fill with oil if required to have oil right below the top of the cylinder inside. Then pump your handle several times, refilling with oil as required. Replace bolt. Done

    A check out lady at harbour freight told me how to use multiple 20% off coupons. Use different phone numbers. At our local store, they dont care. Buy one item, give phone number 1, use 20% off , pay. Put second item on counter, give diff phone number, use 20% coupon, pay... repeat. Might not work if your local store employees are biatchy. but, works here :)

    I am fortunate here, there's a biker bar about 1/3rd mile from HF--so I buy at HF, ride to have a beer or two, then back to HF...
