Default Anyone have a pivot handle floor jack?

I've been wanting one of these for quite awhile. Are these available anywhere for a reasonable price? Something similar to this but with a much, much lower price.

We had a few of them. In my opinion, they really aren't worth saving $$$ over a good Lincoln.

But if that's not what your lookin for and the price is $1K+ you might as well get a lift

Oh, and Craigslist

Omg. I need that in my life. I always have to use just half of the jack handle in my garage and turn the jack at an angle from the direction i'm jacking (dangerous) because there isn't enough room.

For 1200 bucks though...**** that noise!

That's the exact reason I'm searching for one. Since I just lost half my garage space to a new project it's made working with what's left very difficult.

I have a super cheap one from Pep Boys. It's low enough on the business end to get under any car, and swivels 360*. Not pretty, and it only gets to about 15" off the ground, but for the price I didn't care. I can't find it on their website or I'd link to it, but IIRC it was about $50.
