Review of the Performance Tool Floor Jack with Stands

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Performance Tool 3,000 pound aluminum floor jack with stands, Part Number PTW1601. This lightweight jack is made out of an aircraft grade aluminum, so it's going to be durable and easy to maneuver. It comes with 2 jack stands that are adjustable from 9-1/2 to 16 inches. I features a 40 inch cushion grip handle that's easy to install. The dual pistons enable it to reach a max height with only 5 pumps. It has a lift range from 3 to 15 inches.

It's easily maneuverable with the heavy roller and the 2 swivel casters. Please note the floor jack is only intended for lifting. It is not meant to hold the weight for any length of time. Now that we've gone over some features, I'll go ahead and show you how to use it for a typical application. Let's say your hauling your trailer and it's fully loaded and you got a blowout. What we can do is we can pull out our aluminum jack, lift it up, put a jack stand in, and get our tire changed out. The first thing we need to do is find a secure lifting point underneath our trailer.

The axle here will do just fine, so let's bring in our jack. What I want to do is get it lined up and then we can start lifting. It's not a bad idea that when you get close to adjust the saddle, making sure that the grooves in the axle will line up. That way there's minimal shifting when we start to lift. Once it comes in contact we can start lifting it up.

Since we'll just be changing a tire, there's no reason to lift it up any higher than it has to be. Now we can grab one of our jacks. We'll scoot it into place and then we can adjust the saddle on top. We'll get right about there. We can raise it up and then put in the pin.

Now we can lower our jack onto the stand, and as you can see the stand is going to hold it in place. Now we're all set to change our tire or perform any other maintenance that we may need. When you're all done, you can just raise the trailer back up, pull out your stands, and then you've got it. That's going to complete our look at the Performance Tool 3,000 pound aluminum floor jack with stands, Part Number PTW1601.
