kennedy t49 3-tonne

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Project Mercedes-benz E320 Cdi -

Other than its dif­fer­ent colour scheme and 4% price pre­mium, the Kennedy T49 is iden­ti­cal in ev­ery way to the Hal­fords of­fer­ing. Al­though the T49’s spec­i­fi­ca­tions claim a slightly re­duced lift­ing range to the Hal­fords jack, our mea­sure­ments showed them as be­ing the same.

We liked both jacks’ large lift­ing heads (al­though no rubber pro­tec­tion pad is sup­plied), as well as the Diy-friendly han­dles. While they are con­sid­er­ably bulkier and heav­ier than the Deuba and Faith­full jacks, both the Kennedy T49 and Hal­fords jacks were very sta­ble un­der load at their full heights and rep­re­sented good over­all value. Vi­tal stats: Length 685mm Width 346mm Min/max sad­dle heights 145mm/500mm

Both the Hal­fords and Kennedy jacks use knurled nuts to hold the han­dle to the jack socket, which tends to be more con­ve­nient for DIY use.
