    The foot pedal moves with the handle so if the handle is down (to reach under your vehicle), the pedal is also down so it can't be used. Pretty much it's only useful when the handle is vertical. Now that I'm thinking about it, I rarely use the pedal.

    got my jack today, thankfully, I saw it in the snowbank before a passerby. Fuck FedEx, everybody else can walk my packages to the door, last time, I happened to see em, an yelled "in here" when they were going to leave a $1k order in the snowbank

    glad I went aluminum, even at 52 lbs it is freekin heavy, hate to lift a 103 lb steel jack

    anybody here have a trolley hoist ? when I built my barn, I put a LVL beam in to hold my loft, I also had it sized to hold a 5 ton trolley, don't think I want to spend the cake on a power hoist/ trolley.
