They try to hide the fact that they are Asian imported products by sticking their brand name on them, but there is no hiding the differences in the product. Sure, the consumer can buy the cheap knock-off jack for less money, but for a retail item that is already very low in cost compared to the value received – the consumer will get exactly what they pay for… a cheap product that may leave them stranded when needed.

We won’t ever be able to compete with cheap Asian import products on price, nor do we want to. We are set on making high-quality, dependable jacks that truly represent the reputation of quality, durability, and safety standards that has come to be expected from anything bearing the Hi-Lift® name.

The Facts

  • Hi-Lift® Jacks are built in the USA for over 115 years with quality American workmanship.
  • Hi-Lift® Jacks are certified as recommended product by the I4WDTA (International 4 Wheel Drive Trainers Association). Hi-Lift® Jacks are the only jacks to receive this recommendation and certification.
  • Only Hi-Lift® brand Jacks are tested and certified to meet applicable requirements of ASME B30.1-2015.
  • Every Hi-Lift® jack is tested twice before leaving the factory. Each Hi-Lift® is tested at a 4,660 lb / 2113 kg rated capacity and then also tested for up and down functionality on a lighter testing machine. Hi-Lift® jacks are also randomly tested at the 7,000 lb / 3175 kg tested capacity. 100% tested twice = 0 defects.
