The only real difference in them is the one from Harbor Freight doesn't have a removable hand.

Meh, only a minor importance :-) All you need to do is strap the handle back, or ziptie it or something =)

A highlift isnt that expensize to start with. The top of the line highlift is like 60-80 dollars. I would just spend the extra 30 dollars or so for a nice highlift.

do some hunting, I got my highlift for 30 used. :) The removable handle has come in handy as a make shift breaker bar more than once. I know a few guys who have used HF ones with some success too though.

Now that oculd come in handy.. I've always been on the lookout for a good breaker bar :-)

I got my Hi-Lift 2 years ago at Sportsmans Warehouse for $45. I'd say spend the extra money and get the real deal. Nothing against Harbor Freight, it's just I've had bad experiences with cheap jacks.

Top of the line Xtreme HiLift is about $90. Is the harbor freight one rebuildable?
