Hi Mark

Don't think its an air jack - but a hydraulic version of Hi-lift jack.

Looks good if you use a Hi-lift , but we have long preferred the standard wind up jack that came with our Patrol, as its lighter safer and simple but it does require the use of simple acessories to get the height if car is raised etc.

Snake racing products tend to be expensive - I note that on their website it says click for price but doesn't deliver one.

Hi Robin,
You've got to scroll right to the bottom once you "click for a price" at $490 I'd probably have the selling done before I hit the hip pocket too!

Smart move Geoff - I guessed myself about $300 , so I think you hit the nail on the head.

Hi Mark,
I hope you and Keryl and the kids had a great Xmas and a Very Happy New Year!

Looks an interesting gadget!

It's certainly lighter than a regular HiLift though it does look maybe a little more fragile when those polished shafts and seals are exposed to some sand and mud.

The RadFlo shockies seem to be very highly regarded, the company does well and truly do its homework!

It'll probably turn out a winner.

At $490 on the Snake Racing web site it's way above the ball park figure of a regular HiLift!

Same principal as a Traila-mate just lighter and more expensive.


Unless it has a decent footplate will only be good for Toorak Tractors

After the crackdown on high lift jacks (complying to AS/NZS 2693:2003), it would be interesting to see if these are considered in the same category especially as the website describes them as an adaptation of such.

1 tonne rating is a tad light for a decent jack IMO.....

Yep a Traila-mate is a better option Comes with big square footplate and a wheel to use it as a jockey wheel on a van


Has a bracket that fits into grooves in supplied lift plates that are welded onto most vans these days and retails for about $320.

Lifts one side of my 25ft van off the ground easily.


Cheers
