Default Re: Hydraulic Jacks

Can someone please recommend me a place and price for a Hydraulic Jack in Delhi / Gurgaon?
I would prefer a Boxed Crocodile type with at least a 2 Ton capacity. 3 Ton is better, since I would need to lift my Gurkha.
I recently had to switch a tyre on my Gurkha with the conventional Screw Type Jack, and it took me close to 15 minutes, just to lift the vehicle and it was painful doing it. :-)

Anyone knows where in Bangalore one can get sturdy tool boxes ?
I'm looking for one to hold a mini hydraulic trolley jack, the one that came with the product is flimsy and the plastic press-type lock is broken.

Default Re: Hydraulic Jacks

I had a question pertaining to jack stands so thought this would be the most appropriate place to post.

I recently purchased the 3 ton "Big Bull Jack Stands". The problem is that the scissor jack on my honda accord doesn't lift the car enough for me to even slide the jack stands in. The jack stands at their minimum height are too tall to fit under the car even when the scissor jack is fully raised.

Here's a link to the jack stands I purchased: http://www.snapdeal.com/product/big-...dorCode=S2bf8c

I did purchase a seemingly taller jack but that turned out to be just a few cms taller than my scissor jacks. I'm pretty lost because I can't seem to find any taller jacks. They're almost a foot tall at their minimum.
Which jack should I get and where do you recommend I get it from? The local hardware store near my place (Prakash auto) in Santacruz W, Mumbai doesn't store hydraulic jacks.
Any advice would be much appreciated. I'm really struggling to get the jack stands under there.

Scissor jack (screw type) or hydraulic bottle jack have the height limitations mentioned by you. You will get the type of jack posted by rjstyle69 on page 1 of this thread.

Do you mean something like the link above?

However, it mentions a maximum height of 330 mm. I doubt that'll be enough for the minimum limit.

Yes, like that one. The model shown in your link is small. There are models with enough lift height.

You can check the exact model and make at a good tyre alignment shop. They regularly use this kind of jack with the jack stand. They can also tell you where you will get this jack nearby.

Default Hydraulic Jacks

Resurrecting a fairly old post. I am looking for a crocodile jack for my Creta online. Basically I want one that can be raised fairly high and has a good load capacity. Does anybody have any experience, suggestions, advice, links, etc.? Thanks in advance.
