Often imitated, but never duplicated

We don’t usually spend much time attacking knock-offs and imitators, but we do feel the need to make our case as to why Hi-Lift® is STILL the best option.

The knock-off jacks we’ve encountered in the market are import jacks from Asia that are of similar design to the Hi-Lift®. They are priced lower because they utilize cheaper materials, cheaper foreign labor, and sub-par safety standards to manufacture their product. Some of them are being marketed under the generic “farm jack” name, but others are being private-branded by companies to try to gain more legitimacy for their jack.

Hi-Lift’s 2-Piece Handle Socket Design

They try to hide the fact that they are Asian imported products by sticking their brand name on them, but there is no hiding the differences in the product. Sure, the consumer can buy the cheap knock-off jack for less money, but for a retail item that is already very low in cost compared to the value received – the consumer will get exactly what they pay for… a cheap product that may leave them stranded when needed.

We won’t ever be able to compete with cheap Asian import products on price, nor do we want to. We are set on making high-quality, dependable jacks that truly represent the reputation of quality, durability, and safety standards that has come to be expected from anything bearing the Hi-Lift® name.

    I bought my hi-lift jack in the late 70’s, still going strong, couldn’t be happier. Keep up the GREAT work!

    Sold me! Always go with USA made, if you can find it.

    Bought mine in the 70s used on multiple jeeps and in general contracting. Was THE tool for removing fencing.

    Note if you are raising something that weighs over 1,000 pounds 2 plus feet in the air do you want to wonder if I should have paid more for a Hi-Lift?
