About 13 years ago, I got a Norco Air/hydraulic floor jack.  I have 
been very happy with it when it works, but there have been some 
problems.  Contemplating a replacement, I am not really seeing 
anything like this available now.  Have you guys found anything 
similar?  It is a pretty traditional hydraulic floor jack, except it 
also has a compressed air connection.  This operates a pump that 
moves the hydraulic fluid instead of pumping the handle.  The Norco 
is 2.25 Ton, which is plenty for me.  I need to lift everything from 
my Miata to a large SUV.  Besides saving my back, I sometimes find 
the jack in a position where I can't raise the jack handle enough 
before it hits the bumper or other part of the car.  Is there 
anything clever available these days?  If you have a fancy lift, I am 
jealous, but I don't have the room or ceiling height for one.  Thanks.
