    They were out of the orange Daytona low profile long reach 3ton. They did have it in green but the coupon would not work for that part number. They gave it to me for the sale price $169. Better then $189.

    Nice I got my yellow Daytona for $152. 190*.8=$152. Guy knocked 20% off when I bought it boxed.

    Also there’s two orange long reaches right? Long reach, then extra long reach I think.

    I had to disassemble some large windows, this 7-1 screwdriver tool surprised me how well it worked and having all the slotted, Phillips and Pozi insert attachment bits helped a lot, with the non-slip rubber grippy handle a big plus in the cold.

    I ended up with the green low pro/long reach, 24” lift, for $159. They manually honored the orange jack coupon.

    I think there's the standard 3ton in orange and other colors, then the 3ton low profile/long reach. And the Extreme Duty yellow one.

    They said they just got it in.

    I didn't care either way, just wanted the highest lift I could get.

    Does the yellow jack lift higher than the orange one? I nearly bought the yellow one last time it was on sale (a few months ago) but man it was very heavy. My aluminum jack has made a wimp of me. But I think I need to break down and get a heavy duty jack.

    NVM, 23" vs 18" so yeah it lifts higher

    Bottom right orange lifts 24.25” and I think it’s the only one that goes that high.

    I have been searching for a cord reel for quite some time, but havent pulled the trigger knowing how temperamental they can be.

    My ceilings are too high so it would have to be wall mounted.

    My HDX cord reel is still flawless.

    Cheaper than HF, too.

    Most cord reels allow you to set how far the cord retracts into the reel. The is a movable ball stop on the cord. That means you can have the cord hang down to within reach, even though the reel is way up there hidden in the rafters.

    But at that point I’m left with very little usable cord.

    True it will decrease what you can use. But it is 40 feet, so even with a 20 foot high ceiling you should have enough to work with.
    I like having it right at hand overhead. Not having cords strewn across the floor, or where my creeper needs to roll, or under tires, or having to find a wall outlet behind shelves & stuff, etc. Also, my garage only had three outlets to begin with. This allows me to use the extra one by the garage door power source.
