Just wandering what weight your trolley jacks are rated at that you use for your e-series?

Im thinking of getting a 1650kg trolley jack and 2000kg axle stands (that i can get cheap as from work :lol: ), could i use this safely with my EF or should i go for a jack thats rated above 1650kg?

lol, you'd find it bloody hard to get the thing to balance on one point!
i got one at about 1 and a half tonne and she happily jacks the rear end up under the diff. but don't forget to also fit axle stands just incase... just incase...

lol i jacked up a mates car using the standard scissor jack, biggest piece of s**t ive ever used. It completely buckled and would lift the car high enough.


Ive got a 2500 jack and 2000 stands, no problems. I consider it overkill for falcons. Remember what ever your jack is rated at it will do at least another 500 kg with out a problem ;)

If you can stretch the budget try and find yourself a "long reaching" trolley jack. Biggest problem with standard ones is not so much their capacity but how long the trolley is. A short trolley and you can't reach the front cross member and have enough clearance to pump the handle. Same at the rear.

I regret buying mine. I find I have to jack up the car from near each wheel first.
