Trolley jack or bottle jack

Just a quick one as i'm thinking of getting a jack.

Trolley jack or bottle jack? I know trolley jacks are good but what are bottle jacks like, are they any good

Re: Trolley jack or bottle jack

Bottle jack won't move with the car as it shifts... Only useful for straight lifts.

Trolley jack, and pair of axle stands for car work.
Thanks payney1 thanked for this post

Talking Re: Trolley jack or bottle jack

Thing is, can you get the bottle jack under the car ?

I used one on my surf, but I am not so sure it will fit under the Panda, I'm getting a trolley jack.

anyone want a cheap bottle jack ?
