Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Richard The pump jack does not work for my project. But Home Depot provides very good customer services.
Neither Qualcraft pump jack nor Home Depot rented scaffold worked for my home project. My job site is not level because a flowerbed immediately next to the exterior wall where I wanted to work. The gap would be more than 14 inches if I tried Qualcraft pump jack. The rented scaffold required a flat land to operate, but it is 5 feet wide that I was not able to carry with my minivan. I ended with creating my homegrown scaffold which functioned very well to do my job. At the beginning, I spent three weeks testing the Qualcraft pump jack. It stuck each time I reached the wood joint. It was not easy to go down or go up. You can only load with two 2”x12”x120” plank – so you got only 24” working space that is not wide enough. I need at least 30” wide to accommodate toe guard and working space and tools/equipments. I like the Qualcraft pump jack written specification. I gave knowledge about safety requirements. The pump jack maybe a good idea if I am a professional contractor. Yes, I had spent a lot of time to view other customer’s review before I tried it. I might feel safe I jacked it up. I guess that I need at least 6 pump jack brace to work with the pump. Each pump jack brace cost $59.56 – so it is expensive. I did not like to nail the pump jack brace to my wall ( 4 screw nails for each brace, so it will be 24 hole on the wall). .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bundu Works like a charm
I have 3 of these that I'm using on a siding job on my house. I have them 12' apart and I'm using 2 x 12 x 16' planks - yeah I know that's more than the recommended 8' apart but it works for me.
Oil all the pivot points and the roller to let it operate smoothly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kierasdady Better than renting scaffolds!
These work great and you can't beat the price. Take a second to figure out a few aspects, functionally, but great once you get the hang of them. Very flexible. Can use facing in or out, low or high, and in places standard scaffolds won't even fit.

Works going up but fails going down. Took much time to lower scaffolding, had to get off and use ladder to get it down several times.

I had more problems finding straight 16 foot 2x4's.. The jacks are good and work well.. I hit a spot in the
2x4 that I hadto beat the jack with a hammer but it wasn't the jacks. . It's difficult to find straight 2x4
