    I just bought this HF 3 ton jack

    Anything I should do before I first use it? It's heavy but I didn't like the build quality of the aluminum jacks in this price range. So far looks like you have to put weight on the saddle to get the 2 ⅞ height. It's resting height is around 3 ⅛. I read that basically all jacks these days...
