That jack you are talking about feels weak.
I bought one and didn't feel comfortable with it. Felt like it was struggling and required a lot of effort to jack it up. Another problem was that I wished it could jack the car up a little higher before reaching its limit (so I can put jackstands under and have some good distance.
I have the 3 tonne jack and love it. It is a lot heavier than the aluminum one, but feels sturdy and robust.
