Works well for light duty
Good combo set for a DIY mechanic. Fairly easy to use. Jack works well and jack stands hold the specified load easily. As another reviewer mentioned the max height is 15. Per the instructions I did the break-in procedure with the jackbasically raising and lowering the jack with no resistance. The handle is removable and serves to fit into the female sleeve to lift the jack, and then can be moved to fit into the male sleeve release valve. For those who never owned a hydraulic lift, the release valve on this one functions similar to a screw, where you tighten (i.e. close) the valve to be able to raise the jack. Unscrew (i.e. open) the valve and the jack lowers. To close, just turn the valve clockwise until it stops, then a hair bit more, do NOT over tighten like a nut. This valve does NOT need to be over tightened. I was a little worried that the jack would lower too quickly, as another review mentioned. After using it, I can see that the release valve is very sensitive and if you open the release valve too quickly and too much, while under load, the jack will unload quickly and your car will come down violently. Solution: open the valve slowly. VERY slowly. The trick is to not over tighten the valve. If you do over tighten, you'll have to apply extra force to open the valve and that's when you will over compensate to break the valve open (similar to an over tightened nut), and open the valve more than it needs to be opened to release the load. You can't just turn the release valve while your standing up and expect it to come down gently. Kneeling down, I use an overhand grip on the middle of the handle, while holding the end of the handle with the other hand; then very slowly turn the handle (unscrew the valve) incrementally. The valve is very sensitive to movement. Practice with the lift unloaded. If I had to use it professionally everyday multiple times per day I'd go with a different lift. While it's not perfect, for the sale price and for light duty use, it's a great deal for me.

Decent Set.
The jack uses a small valve that you turn counter clockwise for lowering. I tested different heights, and the higher I lifted the jack the harder it became to turning the valve to lower it. When lowering from a higher position with more pressure on the jack, it would violently come down, but the set is good enough for tire changes and rotations. I unfortunately will be returning this set, due to I need to lift my vehicles higher and can't allow the violent lowering that this jack gives. Also one of the jack stands fell down a notch when I tested it, which is pretty scary and a contributing factor for my decision on returning this item. Don't get me wrong I love craftsman tools and over 80% of my tools are craftsman, but I may look for a different brand for a hydraulic jack!

Was ok, at first

After about a year of using this (seldomly, and lightly), it stopped holding air, so the jack would slowly lower. Not impressed. I don't know if this one is a lemon or what, but I'd probably buy again and take a chance that the one I now own is just defective.

Does the job

Great value for do it yourselfers. Could have used a longer handle, but doesn't take away from the product you get for the price. Sure beats the factory provided jacks. Twitter: Phil_Davis15

Just what he needed

Since we have to put studded tires on at least 2 cars every year this set is just what my husbanded wanted. It is going to save on the multiple trips to town (20 miles each way) it takes to get the tires changed on both of our rigs.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best Jack ever

This jack we purchased after one jack fail and the other 2 were extremely difficult to crank. My husband was amazed at how easy it is to use he plans on buying a second to put in my car as well. And he loved that the price point was so low. Have to say we are extremely impressed.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 2-1/4 ton Floor Jack Combo a Hit

The Craftsman Floor Jack/Jack Stand combination is a great product for the weekend mechanic to work on small to medium projects. It makes a great addition to my line of all Craftsman tools and will help me care for my half-ton pickup truck.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great set. Good value.

Got these for my son as a gift. He is 16 and is really getting into mechanics. This is the perfect set for lifting up the family car, getting under it, and getting dirty! 2 1/4 ton covers pretty much all cars and most small-midrange SUV's and trucks. If you have a a big truck or SUV, you'll need a bigger jack, but for most garage heroes, this is the perfect pick.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
