    Genuine hi-lift jack

    Before I pull the trigger on a new one thought I'd check nobody's got one unloved in the shed.

    Ideally looking for the all cast model with the top clamp.

    Got three of them, and no, they are not for sale

    Have lifted bulldozers out of bogs, 40 ft containers into position, horse boxes off the back of trucks, and the odd stuck 4x4.

    Amazing bit of kit, an Aussie 4wd YouTube show managed to bend one recently. Lifted up stuck 4wd and as getting other things ready it gradually turned into a banana quite hard case

    I have had a couple of the supercheapauto ones and for the $150 they cost I've thrashed them pretty good pulling stumps with the winch kit. Lifted a 10x6m garage up 800mm with 2 of them

    Yep, ive got 2 myself. The newer one lives in the back of my truck. Along with a couple of warratahs, heavy strops, sledge, smallish shovel,couple of Hanks of rope etc. Never know when or where, but it all comes in handy & hopefully saving a sheepish phonecall for 'help'.

    Yeah you got it, I'd consider a jackall too (slightly better than a hi-lift if you can find one)

    I’ve got a hi-lift that rattles around on my flat deck. I think you will struggle to find one secondhand, they’re a bit too handy to get rid of. Imagine how many jacked up utes are driving around right now, with nothing but the factory short stroke jack under the seat.

    And half the lifted wagons that have a hi-lift will have no jacking point on the 4wd to fit the hi lift.
    I have a beaver brand, came from TWL around 20 yrs ago. Has been used as a winch more often tan a jack. Very good at popping tyre beads to change tyres or carry out puncture repairs.

    Anything from Adventure King will be mild steel extruded section, not the cast steel ones. You don't get much quality steel for a hundy bucks these days.
