    I bought my all cast one at a Tractor Supply store. Paid $74 for tax and delivery and everything. It looks like I could jack up a house with it....love it.

    I forgot about the discount. I orderd my Hi-lift from them.. The only problem I had with them was a UPS issue..The said they damaged it... How do you damage a hi-lift jack.. Anyway before it got to me they had sent it back to 4wpw.. I saw the tracking numbers so I know it wasn't 4wpw fault. I called 4wpw and they had another one on the way...Dan

    If it ain't broke.......Don't fix it....

    What did they do run it over with a tank.[​IMG] I can't see how they damaged a High Lift during shipping.

    How in the hell do you mess up a Hi Jack enough to send it back...I bet they tried to use it to jack up one of the big brown trucks [​IMG] even then, those things are SOLID

    The only thing I could think was they ran over it with a fork lift.. I don't know. Like I said I never got to see it.. UPS turned it around in mid shipment.. But it must have been pretty bad cause I have gotten things from UPS that were damaged. And the boxes were all torn up. But they still sent them...Dan

    I never did get that cast/stamped thing straight! I have two 60" Highlifts. I keep the red one with me and the black one in NoShow84's rig. Which one is cast and which is stamped and what is better? Maybe I should take the black one back.[​IMG]

    usually, and correct me if i'm wrong guys and gals, the Cast ones are red and the black ones have some stamped pieces.

    Wayne is looking for a cast jack. I'd assume the cast is better! But I'm really not sure!
