I was going to hold off a bit longer, but the SEMA show pricing was 25% off their normal price. I also bought the SUV adapters.

For home use, I think this will be perfect. I already have access to a 4-post lift, but for quick oil changes or other light maintenance, this should suffice.

The Prius is due for an oil change soon (next 2 weeks) so I will update the thread with pictures.

Does anyone else have one?

I have the 5k one.

You'll note it's a jack, not a lift. The instructions read to put jack stands under, too.

I have the 5K JQ and love it. I spend a lot of time under the cars. Don't use jack stands, not sure how I could even do that.

I have the BL-7000SLX, not the extended version. I needed mine to be able to fit under a number of small cars, but also hold my Suburban.

Right, but it explicitly states at the bottom of their list of "Do's and Don't's" in their manual that when working under a vehicle one must also use jack stands at the proper vehicle lift points. wink

In essences it's their way of absolving them of any liability in the event their product fails and injures/kills someone. I say this because the manufacturer must be aware that you cannot use both jack stands and the QJ at the same time because both items would have to occupy the same "vehicle lift points".

I've looked at those lifts and can't get past the feeling of being trapped and can't get out if something happens. Because a lot of the side access is blocked. So I'm curious what your opinions are as you use them. How convenient they really are.

I looked at them for a long time before buying one; I was just not sure how useful it would be given that most of my vehicles are not real hard to get up on jack stands to begin with. It didn't take me long after buying it to realize that it is better, faster, safer, and that I should have pulled the trigger much earlier. My opinion is that if you are thinking it would be useful to you, it probably will be.

I have the larger Quick Jack for SUV and trucks with the adapters. It definitely makes working on the vehicles easier. Always make sure you have it on either the first lock or second lock engaged properly. Ask me why? The only issues I have had is a leak at the pump. I had to take the housing that holds the fluid off, clean it up, and use some RTV sealant. It hasn't leaked since.

I looked at the HF style scissor lift for a while and didn't like how it blocked the exhaust. I seem to always be doing cat-back exhausts or rear o2 sensors and these are a hassle with ramps or jack stands! Maxjack is nearly perfect. My biggest gripe is how my creeper gets tangled with the hydraulic lines that go to the power head.

It's nice to creep in under one bumper and pop out the other, for doing stuff like spraying fluid film on everything.

It's less claustrophobic (for me) to have the floorpan 12 inches away with maxjack vs having it *right there* on lower stands even if the sides are blocked.

MaxJack not so bad either but it's more expensive, requires min 3000 psi concrete, requires more room (14ft wide bay) and time to set up.
