A: 0 to about 8 inches... 215 mm in the description so do your own conversion on Google.
A: 330 pounds. It's in the description.
A: No, it's made in Norway.
A: Yes lowering the jack is just as easy as raising it, I like how you can lower it in Increments to get the piece your working with in the right position.
A: There are two levers for lowering. One is to step down, just as you stepped up, the other is a full release. I am right-handed so I naturally hit the safe step down. Lefties might need to pay attention. Have not had any issues lowering very heavy items safely and smoothly.
A: Dear Customer, The jack is very turdy i would keep the lifting capacity of up to 330 lbs in mind to make sure it performs well.
A: It has the ability to lower incrementally via one silver lever and more rapidly via the lever next to it. (The incremental lever lowers the jack veeeeery slowly.
A: ABSOLUTELY YES! You answered your own question …. Most of these are knock offs. This tool has a “finesse “ lever for fine adjustments. Buy it … you won’t be disappointed.
