Ford Jack


Recommended Posts

Wow I had a puncture yesterday morning on the way to work and I found the jack a complete waste of time. It done the job but I found it as useful as cooking dinner with no heat. The handle his the floor and found it hard to get the groove to fit around the ridge under the car, surly these are more dangerous I felt I had to rush before it fell. Give me a trolley jack any day!!!.

as I say, its not short enough to just put straight under, but for 30 seconds scissor jacking up a few mil, and then bottle jack under and let the bottle jack get on with the rest, it works a treat!

The only issue is that when your jacking down, you need to put the scissor back into the groove, and lower it so the scissor jack takes the weight, then compress the bottle jack the rest of the way, remove and then drop the last mil's with the scissors :)
