Costco Arcan 3.5 ton Low Profile floor jack

My local Costco currently has this. I've been told they carry this only once or twice a year. It was the Costco at the District (Tustin). You can call ahead and ask them for the Arcan 3.5 ton floor jack. It will fit under your lowered car (3.5"). My moderately low 335D on Stock 18s sits right above 5" at the jack points.

It was around $90

Feature list on this 3.5 Ton Steel Jack:

* 3.5 inch saddle height for low-clearance applications
* Maximum lift height of 21 3/8 in.
* Two Stage Quick lift pump.
* Reinforced side rails for safety and durability.
* 2 piece padded Handle
* Overall Dimensions approx 29in Long x 13in Wide.
* Shipping Weight 105 lbs.

Sells for $200 here:

phuong has this same one. i want one. heavy as hell though but very sturdy and very low. everyone should pick one of these up if they can find it. I always check whenever I go to my local Costco but they don't carry that one.

damn, this is definitely worth a trip to costco this week or weekend. I need a low-pro so bad.

Right now the only way is to drive up to the drainage groove in my driveway to create extra space haha

Did you say they have 24 more in stock and in the Tustin Costco? Better call and see if they have it in stock and if so, I'll be picking one up today! Thanks for the info!

Anytime. Yes, I called and asked how many they had in stock. I didn't count, but they had quite a few.

It's not exactly in the auto aisle, it's along the wall at the very end/corner. It's near the auto aisle though but not directly next to it. Hope that helps.

I used it last night, it seemed very solid. Can't tighten/untighten unless the lever is around or past 45 degrees fyi.

Your not lifting the whole 3600lbs. If you jack up one side of the car the jack isn't lifting more than its capacity.

Just went to Tire Central and they are using a bunch of these jacks. Guess they work well.

Got any hook ups at Tire Central (where is this located)? Looking for a pair of 225/40/19 any brand and 235/35/19 Federal SS595 tires for a very affordable price.

Didn't get a chance to go to Costco.
