I've got the exact same jack. Great bit of gear. Possibly heavier than it strictly needs to be, but I've used it with BMW E61, Lexus RX 450H, lifts them all easily.

Good to hear. It's for lifting my Lexus GS450h and my wife's Rav4 so hopefully will be up to the job for them

I was thinking the other day I should get a trolly jack - and again DW delivers the info

Need to go measure how low to the ground the Mini is though - I've heard there can be issues getting a standard jack under one. I'm still never sure where I should place one under the car though! I've not had much experience working on the mechanics of a car, but would like to do more.

You will need a low entry jack to get under a Mini. It is also worth getting a jacking pad that fits into the jacking points under the sills (2 each side) the pads are easily available on line.

Be warned, SGS's customer service is APPALLING!!! I've had an open case with them since June so I can purchase a replacement handle end caster wheel assembly. Oh we'll get one out by the end of the week is the common response!

Dont expect any assistance when you have a problem.

Another vote for SGS This One is what I just got along with some 6 ton huge axle stands and a jacking beam, the thing is massive and very heavy, makes the dinky halfords one and even the normal sized lidl special jacks look like toys.

Not used in anger yet, but hopefully got the strength to get it out and get the **** of my 940 right up in the air to get cleaning under it.

On SGS and their customer service, I found email far better than phone, had issue with wrong stuff sent out, and was sorted quickly that way.
