Has anybody got or used a pneumatic jack? I had some tyres change on my drive a few weeks ago and the guy had one. Not cheap but it looked pretty useful.
One advantage of a Bottle Jack or this air bag type of jack is that they lift straight up.
Trolley jacks tend to pull the vehicle, or slip as the lift arm comes to the end of it's reach. Only an issue if using a trolley jack on it upper reach.
Those exhaust jacks are handy when out on the trail I'm sure. I'm certain I've seen them before.
I've got a ready supply of compressed air, it just seemed a quick way of jacking up the vehicle. Also quite a wide base which will prevent damage to my nicely tarmaced driveway.
The threaded bar of Nav scissor jacks stretch with use, being designed, I assume, for only a 1t car and thus made of chocolate....
If you need to get a wheel off, don't rely on it more than twice....
Yeah but you have a lad who can shoulder the load...
Maybe mine is not as well made as wherever yours was sourced from, but I have had to bash the threaded rod back into shape to get it to function - it is cheap and nasty, proper Nissan cost-saving. And no, I am not so daft as to lift the truck while attached to my 4.3t 5th wheel....! (Actually, it would be easier if I was hitched, as the electric legs are pretty strong and would lift at least one side of the rear of the truck if attached).
