Yes! Low profile Motomaster Aluminium Jack going on sale!

My patience finally paid off! I missed it the last time it was on sale in December from $200 down to $120, and I just got a sale alert that it'll be going on sale as of March 19 for $120!

Thanks for the heads-up!

Will its 1.5 ton capacity be adequate?

Many here use it, so it shouldn't be a problem. A ton is defined to be 2,000 pounds, so 1.5 tons would be 3,000 pounds. You're never going to have more than much weight on the jack that when lifting a corner of a car, or even a side I guess. Our cars are around 4000 pounds. If you were lifting one end of a big SUV (both tires), maybe it would be an issue...

Thanks - I'm hoping that it will work on my wife's SUV as well; She drives a Liberty now and will most likely give that to our son when he gets his licence at the end of the year, and trade up to something nicer (looking at the X6 or the GLK)

Some use a breaker bar to remove the bolts others use an impact gun.

These are good sockets as they will not scratch your wheels.

Just to let everyone know, it's now $119. For those who have bought it this week, go back to CT and get $40 back!

Dude, which grade of math did you finish? $200 - $120 = $80!

Just picked one up from our local store

Here's a newb question - Where exactly are we supposed to place/position the jack? Directly below the black rectangular thingie or beside it?

And after it's been lifted, where are the best locations to put the axle-stand(s)?

TIA!

Actually I've published in peer-reviewed journals related to subject.

Ha sorry I meant to say that it's now 40% off in Alberta. When you guys had your sale, it only went down to 20% off all last week and then went down an additional 40% off to $120 now as of this morning. I bought it last week at $160 so I got my $40 back today at lunch.

I was told to use a hockey puck on top of the jack and the jacking point of the car? I remember reading a while back someone here was selling jack adapters. Where can I buy that?

Just bugging you! I wonder if prices are different for each province... Here in BC, it's been $200 ever since Xmas, and not once gone on sale since. Today's the first day it's on sale, and it's gone down to $120. Was never at $160 in between. Glad to see everyone's now able to buy it at $120. I couldn't bring myself to spend that much on it, and just kept watching it waiting to pounce on it, when it does go on sale.

Here I come!

Haha I know you were kidding.

Actually I just reread the original post. OP said it was to be on sale today for $120. So I guess the sale for this one is the same.

But I do notice that some CT's have sales on some things and some don't. I bought a backup camera for my fiancee from the Toronto Eaton Centre Canadian Tire once and it wasn't on sale in Edmonton. So I guess some things go on sale but some things don't.

But yeah, the same jack has been on sale in Edmonton for the last while at $160. I bought it at that price so I just went back and got my money back from CT.

I think everyone knows though that CT's regular price is a rip off most of the time. However, when things go on sale there, it's something like 40% off.
