    I have a 48" I got at Tractor Supply. IT worked great. The mechanism has gotten a little rusty and doesn't function perfectly anymore. I got it because I was stuck and the only way I saw getting out was with a hi-lift. It got me out of the jam and has been used a few times since then.

    I would pay the little bit more to get the HiLift. At least you can get replacement parts. I'm leary of Asian cast iron. When its time to use a farm jack, we don't stop to figure-out the dead weight, drag, incline bla bla bla; we just pull it. Me or my truck won't be within range of one of those copies.

    I bought one like that originally. I used it for a year or two a few times. I sold it to stallion85 on here when I lived in Las Vegas. As far as I know he is still using it. :D

    I picked up an old hi-lift at a pawn shop for $20. When it gets wet, needs a squirt of WD40, but otherwise, it works great.
