View Full Version : Press ?'s
What would be the best press to get from Harbor Freight? The 12 ton "A" frame, 12 ton "H" frame, or the biggin, the 20 tonner?

best? id get the 20, cheapest A-frame, best deal though i think is the H-frame 12. reason being that i think it would hold a 20 ton jack a lot better than the A-frame if you decided to upgrade later.

the H's tend to be a little loose. i'm looking for a bench mount A that i could tighten up a bit. grab the movable plate and see how much it wiggles front to back. i've bent two H styles, one from harbor and one from northern.

Go with the 20 ton unit. It is heavier in build and in ability to press out anything I have put to the task. I have had mine for a year now and it is amazing what you can do with it.
