I have been able to determine that US Jack products are indeed 100% US made, no "Assembled in USA" crap.

Are there any other US manufacturers of floor jacks?

The 4 ton US Jack floor jack is $1400, that's about double what I can afford.

It appears that Gray makes most of their products here. Other companys seem to rebadge them. Emerson makes their jacks, All their units are air for lifting ag equipment. Can buy direct from both of these companys

Indeed US Jack sells 100% USA made jacks but some of their jacks are imported. Guess the marketing value of "made in America" is limited.

I get along nicely with $79.oo ones from HF.I have running tractors that I have around $1,400 bucks invested in and my $79 buck jack lifts them just fine.

I have that 4 ton jack. Gave 40 dollars for it at a auction. Had a rebuild kit put in it. Have about 2 hundred in it.

I've got a question I've never seen an answer for.. I have an older Craftsman 3 ton floor jack. When it has a load on it, it will slowly drop down and at the same time dump fluid on the floor..

is there a suitable additive to the fluid that will help the seal ?? kinda like a 'stop leak' additive ??

Your best option then is to buy used and rebuild if required. A lot of older jacks are still out there and they'll last forever with some work and care. New seals and a couple of ball check valves and you've got a quality jack for little money.

A 4 ton Hein Werner. Pic doesn't do it justice, it's massive, the sides are 1/2 structural steel. It dwarfs the 2 ton OTC sitting in the background. Got a little carried away with cleaning and painting...

I had a good Sears US made jack years ago, somehow it disappeared. Main thing I have found about Chung King jacks is they won't lift anywhere near their rated capacity and they leak.

It is when you price yourself right out of the market. They have to keep a line of less expensive imported jacks to keep the doors open. You can only sell so many $1400 floor jacks to "true Americans." The rest of us can't afford them.

Looks like a Weaver to me, maybe a 10 ton. Click on Mark-Mi's earlier link.

I have mixed feelings. Finding out one of my American suppliers charged me 10 times what they charged corporations. Doctors gouging me 5 times what they charged insurance co, 10 times medicare. Buy American sound good but I'm always getting swindled. Small Business
