    Sometimes when changing wheels around it is a bit tight around the sides of the garage and the trolley jack has to be skewed for access to the lifting points.
    Using the standard scissor jack is to say the least tiresome.
    I spotted a hydraulic scissor jack from Westfalia and decided to give it a try. Bought directly from them - they have a good selection of tools.
    Works perfectly, saves time, made as well any other scissor jack and has a 1000kg rating.
    The saddle for Honda use needs to be twisted round to allow lifting point full engagement and jack at slight diagonal.
    Could have less free play, and possibly a cranked handle to make access easier fir first few strokes to get clearance from jack to skirt.

    Not the tool to carry around in car mabye but for easy access in tight spaces does the job.

    I have also tried an electric scissor jack a few years ago - worked well until it stopped - with the car raised!!
