Default Transmission Jack

Has anyone ever used one of these: Transmission Jack - 450 Lb. Capacity

I just ordered one and was wondering how well it works.

I have used the taller version of that in conjunction with a lift, makes it easy to really yank on the trans and feel safe it won't come fall on your face.

It will work fine for occasional use, but for more frequent use, I'd upgrade...

hey, just bring that thing over here and you can use my lift and jack...! Just buy the beer!

Looks better than my crappy tranny jack. I have to carefully balance my T56 within a few inches and it still wants to fall off. I'm thinking of fabbing up a custom craddle to hold it better.

This should do better than man handling it up on a floor jack with an adapter and with going to a 4l80e that option is just out of the question.

I might be a little late in responding but i did buy and use this jack from HF. Worked well. In my case i just needed to get the trans off the guide pins without dropping it directly onto the ground. When re-installing i wrestled the trans back onto the jack under the car and was able to put everything back together by myself.
