      Hey there,

      So a car jack is really a tool that helps lift vehicles of the ground so that maintenance can be performed. Mechanical jacks are usually rated for a maximum lifting capacity (for example, 1.5 tons or 3 tons) depending on whether you want to lift up just one side of the car to perhaps change a tire or the whole front end of the car if you want to tinker with the engine.
      Here’s an example: http://www.motorsport-sales.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=314&products_id=4198

      Does that answer your question?
