Default Any recommendations for a new floor jack?

I finally blew a 3.5 ton floorjack.
I need a replacment 3.5 ton minimum, but a 4 ton is btr.
Any proven experience with the Northern or HF brands? Or other low cost ones
I lift my tractors and other equip, not carts only...Thanks

Its my understanding that 90% of the hydraulic jacks out there are made by the same company, one of their names comes to mind, Larin I belive, but all labeled for the company where its being sold. There are only like 2 USA made jacks, cant think of them off hand, and I don't even think Snapons is US made anymore.

Ive had my 3 ton HF jack for over year now and it seems to work just fine. I do wish I just would have spent the extra money and bought the 4 ton. Just be safe and use appropriate jack stands at all times.

I've got an old harbor freight jack, I probably got it 15 years ago. I've got no complaints about it, lifts anything I've ever needed it to lift. But I only use it to lift, use jack stands to hold them up once they're up.

I bought mine from Sams several years ago and love it. I needed one that
would raise high (I believe 22 if not more). Seems everything I own is
lifted.

I bought the Yellow Daytona 3.5-ton from Harbor Freight 2-yrs ago,its heavy and works awesome.2-guys I know bought the identical jack,1-from Mac,the other from Matco,and they haven't had an issue with them either. We compared them side-by-side,they are the same unit.

Others are agreeing with the HF Daytona 3 ton. The super duty model has a 2 year wrrty. They don't have a 3.5 ton.
I would prefer their 4 ton. It doesn't have that wrrty included but you can purchase it.

I have a 25 YO Matco 2 ton (all bent to heck and straightened alot) and a 20 YO Allied(Sams) 3.5 ton (now blowed). I def got moneys worth out of them. Some tractors I've lifted I had to use both in tandem to lift. They've been tested well.
