    Costco (Arcan) Trolley Jack

    Hi all,

    Thought this trolley jack deserved it's own thread!

    Low profile, aluminium, twin piston, long pole, reaches full height in about 5 pumps.

    Costco sell it for $164, some guy on ebay is buying them up from the NSW store and selling them on ebay here for about $240. Check out his ebay ad as it has some more pics!

    Here are some pics:



















    For the price it is excellent. Plus it looks great

    The jack only has 1 hydraulic piston, just so you know....

    looks like pretty good bargain buy....

    1500kg right?

    how heavy does it weigh?

    Look at the back bottom photo above, it is twin piston.

    Yes 1500kg.

    The box is 24kg, less packaging, maybe 23kg jack + pole.

    That is one piston.

    But each pump you do of the pole pushes 2 pistons



    Which then pushes that large one. Got to love hydraulics

    I think he means twin pump pistions which pump the single piston with fluid.
    OEM parts whore

    I prefer to slowly jack the car up, srs.

    i'm too skinny & weak to utilise a jack that pushes to full height in 5 pumps.


    the old jack i had would do it in 500 pumps, but i could do it with my pinky finger....

    No, they stock it all the time at the same price afaik. Only thing to be careful of is that they sell out quickly, especially if the ebayer buys them out the same day they come in!

    It's piss easy to pump since the lever is nearly 2 meters long. Shits over any other jack I've ever used. Besides the one's I used at TAFE which were like 30-40k lol
