What is better, a floor jack or bottle jack?
Compared to bottle jacks, floor jacks are easier to use. Bottle jacks require a certain amount of space under the car. If your vehicle does not have enough ground clearance, it is best to choose a floor jack. But bottle jacks are usually cheaper than floor jacks and can lift larger loads.
Do I need a 3-ton jack?
Yes, Our rule of thumb is that the Jack must be rated at least three-quarters of the total vehicle weight. So, according to our standards, a 3-ton or 3.5-ton floor jack can lift a 4-ton car.
