Jacks are a wonderful invention which helps you to lift heavy objects by just applying force on one end. A trolley jack is a hydraulic two-piston vehicle lifting device that converts the downward force applied to the handle, or first piston point, into upward force at the second piston point. These trolley jacks make the lifting of the car much easier. They roll beneath the car on four wheels and use hydraulic pressure to raise the vehicle.
The following article lists the best trolley jacks which are available in the market today.
10. Husky Liners Trolley Jack ($48.15)
This 2-ton trolley jack has a compact size for easy storage and is ideal for DIY users. It features a 360-degrees swivel saddle for substantial load contact on the vehicle. The heavy gauge steel frame provides strength and durability for heavy loads. It has a rust-resistant finish for a long life and ball bearing swivel casters for easy jack positioning.
9. LiftMaster Trolley Jack ($54.99)
This product is a 21-inches, 3-ton, high lift trolley jack for cars, SUVs and pickup vans. The unit is ANSI/CE certified for machinery and product safety and has a lifting range of 190 – 530 mm (7.5 – 21 inches). It will not fit under a flat car. It is perfect for trucks and SUVs. It doesn’t have a rapid technology pump, so it’s a little slow raise but otherwise a great jack.
“This is a great value! Granted I just got it today, and I will update if there is a problem, but it’s well built and heavy duty for this style jack. The price makes this a great value! It will lift SUV/Truck, but will also fit under most standard height vehicles as well. Went right under the wife’s Nissan Versa hatch with no problem.
Well worth the money!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
8. Arcan Trolley Jack ($210.10)
This one is an aluminum floor jack with 2-ton capacity. It weighs only 50.4 pounds and requires only 3-1/2 inch height needed to get under low loads. It allows a 2 stage quick lift and the maximum lift height goes to 19-1/4 inches. This unit meets ANSI/ASME and PALD standards. It features excellent speed and precision.
“Bought this to work on my 1994 MX-5 Miata. Slides under the front-end without rubbing (and there’s not a lot of room there). Very high quality and pumps up quickly. Nice and lightweight so it is easy to move into the correct position. I highly recommend this jack.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
7. Performance Tool Craftsman Trolley Jack ($54.32)
This 2.25-ton trolley jack comes with a case. This jack has a steel lifting saddle with 360 degrees swivel. It allows clean, and easy storage with the included blow molded plastic case. The unit has a 5-1/4 to 15″ lift range and has an overload protection bypass valve for safety.
“This is a great car jack, and I am so glad I bought this one. I love that this came with a carry case because we bought this to keep in the trunk of our 1995 Mercedes-Benz S420. The reason is that we no longer have the one that came with the car and the last one we had finally given out on us. We need to carry a jack because we travel so much and you just never know when you need a jack.
We blew a tire last week, and this came in handy. This jack is low profiled and fits really well under this car with no issues. It was easy to use, and my partner who is in his 60’s (and has COPD) didn’t have any trouble getting this in and out of the trunk. It weighs 33 pounds or so and it was still easy enough to manage. It was easy to use and came already put together so it is a good buy.
It is an excellent buy for the price considering what it is, and I highly recommend this car jack. If you are undecided which Jack to pick, this one doesn’t cost much more and comes with a case. The case makes a difference so not only the Jack doesn’t get dirty and dusty, but neither does other items around it (if you keep in the trunk like us).” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
6. Blackhawk Trolley Jack ($144.52)
This fast lift trolley service jack comes with a 3.5-ton capacity. This unit has a heavy-duty construction, and the rolled side frames add strength and durability. A Bypass device prevents over pumping, and the built-in safety valve ensures extra safety. It has an ergonomic handle design and allows a quick lift. A little glitch: There is a limitation in the movement of the arm once the jack is being dragged.
“The fast pump feature is very quick and convenient. Jack does not creep down. The padded pump handle is a nice touch. I’ve used it on SUVs and light pickups, so far so good. The only thing Jack needed was the caster wheels lubed up to make it roll nicer.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
5. Pittsburgh Trolley Jack ($72.66)
This 1.5-ton compact trolley jack comes with a rapid pump. This jack is constructed with a durable aluminum billet. A knurled aluminum handle ensures a steady grip while you quickly lift your load in just 3-1/2 pumps. The racing jack also features a universal joint release mechanism for smooth, precision lowering, and a compact design for easy storage and transport. It has a lifting range of 3-3/8 inches – 14-3/4 inches. You can attain a maximum lift height of 14-3/4 inches and a minimum height of 3-3/8 inches. It cannot go high enough to raise a truck but works ideal for lowered vehicles. It also features padded handles to avoid scratching your car.
“If you have a lowered / low car, this is THE Jack to buy. My standard jack that I purchased from WalMart did the job until I lowered my car, and this is where this Jack came in. It is a low profile jack that does what it says it does, work. I’ve jacked up small cars from Mini Coopers all the way to Big V8 Jeep Commanders no problem with this jack. Don’t contemplate looking for other jacks as this is THE Jack you need.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
4. Pro-Lift Trolley Jack ($53.10)
This low-profile floor jack has a 2-ton capacity. This unit has an extra low profile and a lifting range of 3-1/2 inches to 14 inches. The patented bypass device protects against over pumping for safe operations. It has a built-in safety valve which provides protection from overloading. The heavy-duty steel construction guarantees a long-term durability.
“Great jack for the car, especially cars that have been lowered. I’ve had it a few months now, and it has never failed me. I use it once a week working on my cars (use jack stands also but keep the jack up also). Be aware, this is a low profile jack it is not for SUVs. So if you get it for an SUV, don’t leave a bad rating or else you’ll look like an idiot.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
3. Arcan Trolley Jack ($146.57)
This steel service jack comes with a 2-tonne capacity. The unit has a compact design with all the features of a full-sized jack. It has a dual pump for rapid lifting, and the universal joint release mechanism provides precise control. It also complies with ASME PALD 2009 standards. The unit is sturdy and well-built. It works perfectly for low vehicles.
Amazon offers two models: One for low profile and the other for the extra low profile. Please check the ratings before purchasing.
“This is an excellently performing jack. Let me make myself clear; these are not the jacks that you might have purchased 20 years ago that were low priced, questionable for strength, stability and durability. It is light in weight; it is low for confined clearances and the letdown speed it easily controllable for as gentle a set down as you would want. I am so impressed by the quality and performance of this jack; I just ordered a 3-ton aluminium version from Arcan. These jacks are as good as anything I have experienced in 50 years of automotive repair.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
2. Torin Trolley Jack ($63.54)
This unit has an extra long neck which saves time and makes it easier to lift vehicles. It has a lifting range of 6 inches to 21 inches and comes with an extension adapter. It is incredibly easy to use and makes the job much easier.
“This is a good jack for the money. I used to install a lift kit on a Jeep Wrangler, and it served well. As a previous reviewer noted, the top extension is removable–helpful when you’re lifting at different points for different purposes. The jack is sturdy and seems well made where it counts. The fit and finish are only okay–lots of rough spots in the paint and it rattles around a lot. None of that matters in functional terms, but you won’t impress your buddies with this thing. It does the job and does it well, and that’s it. I docked it one star because it lacks any handle for pulling it around the garage. I have other–lighter duty–jacks that have handles, and they’re useful. This is a big jack. It could use a handle.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
1. MileStone Tools Trolley Jack ($149.95)
This 3-ton aluminum, steel garage jack has a rated capacity of 3 tons (6000 pounds) with lift range 4 inches to 18-1/4 inch. It is made from lightweight aluminum frame to reduce product weight and increase portability. It is equipped with a heavy-duty steel lift arm for strength and durability. The quick lifting hydraulic system saves time; and is equipped with safety valve to prevent overloading beyond rated capacity. The rubber padded saddle protects vehicle frame, and the rear wheels swivel for easy positioning.
“I was shopping around for a Floor Jack which would provide the weight reduction features of an aluminium jack without the steep price as well as provided a larger lift distance so that I could use on a lifted F150 and a minivan. I noticed this was rated for 3 tonnes and had aluminium and steel components with a 4″ to 18 1/4″ range.It was a good compromise in weight and strength and lift capacity. Not as heavy as an all steel 3-ton jack, but not as expensive as an all aluminium model. Reading about aluminium jacks, I found some owners complaining about the aluminium arm breaking with no flex. So I felt that a critical component being steel may bring some piece of mind about this happening. It has a rubber pad so that it does not damage the undercarriage or slip. It has a double plunger to lift quickly, moves with minimal resistance on a concrete floor, and the handles on the sides allow for ease of carry. When I first received it, I noticed that it was missing some fluid and only filled. Also, the arm movement may get a little harder as you lift a heavier load and the handle is long which could make it difficult to lift when having to go under a lifted vehicle as the handle motion is limited.Make sure you follow the instructions and purge the air before use. This is my first-floor jack purchase beyond a bottle jack. I looked for several weeks before making my decision.For this price and the features of this floor jack; I have not found a better value yet. Thanks.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
