Trolley jack.

I need a trolley jack to do both an Escort Cosworth and a BMW X5. I have a "Halfords special" jack that I've been using for years. It's really tight on the Cosworth as the car, albeit isn't the lowest on the road, is really too low for the jack. I haven't tried the X5 on it; firstly the X5 is my dads new car and I haven't seen it yet alone worked on it and second, the jack is only rated to 2 tonnes so wouldn't risk it. I've been looking and found this

Anyone got one or has experience of something similar that would be suitable.

Thanks.

I have the 2 ton low profile one and really pleased with it.
SGS has been recommended on here before and I think their products are quality and good value

As above I have the 2t model, it's brilliant and I like the fact it comes with a case so can be stored easily too

I have the 3 ton (not low profile)version with 6 ton axle stands, cant fault it, used to lift my rrs with ease. Cant fault the build quality, the metal thickness is twice that of similar sized jacks I have used, and its was all under £80 at the time i bought it.

Shame SGS as a company suck big time.
