I was given the above as a X Mas present and am just not sure if it will do the job, or if I should use it with the 100 series Land Cruiser.
I know it is used to get one out of a difficult spot in sand and mud, but is this particular piece of Equipment suitable for the job with my vehicle?
Can anyone out there advise please.
Thanks and Happy New Year to all

I assume it's an exhaust jack? Blows up like a balloon under the car and lifts up the entire side of the vehicle. They come in different sizes and weight ratings so you need to check the inflation size and weight capacity to see if it is rated for your vehicle. They work ok in sand but tend to slip out from under the car in mud. I have rescued myself in sand with one. Be careful where you place it or you can rip a hole in it from any sharp metal pieces under the car. Cheers.

What weight is it allowed to lift? A quick look at the SuperCheap brochure tells me 1250kg. Normally you'd use a 4 tonne exhaust jack on 100series, so I'd say it's undersized.

Cheers
