SGS 3 TONNE HEAVY DUTY TROLLEY JACK

#1 Post by Mr Teddy Bear » Tue Jul 04, 2017 4:10 pm

DO YOU NEED TO GET UNDER YOUR CAR TO DO STUFF?


Superior quality, heavy duty, big bad boy trolley jack. :groupwave

A must have piece of kit, unless you already own a two post lift! :tt2

I believe that SGS manufacture these and sell/distribute via Ebay. Max lift height of over half a metre, that's approx' 20 inches for us oldies. Large lift table 4.5" dia', with optional fitted rubber pad. Large rubber covered [4.5 ft] two part lift handle; single location pump to raise/twist to lower operation.

Wouldn't look out-of-place in a professional workshop or retailing at twice the price!

Bought on Friday and delivered by Tuesday lunchtime.

They do look the absolute business. Link for anyone interested:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3-Ton-Heavy-D ... 1028680739

They've shifted over 2,000 of these things.

Now if I just had access to some flat-and-level ground, I could buy one and as you say - get under the car instead of paying for someone else's spanner time, not that I rate my ability to be able to do any of the necessary :laughing2

Just to add that the Ebay photograph's don't convey the size and construction. The two longitudinal steel plates that form the chassis, are 1/4" thick!

And "how low can you go" as the saying goes. Will it fit under a suspension arm with wheel grounded, for instance.

If you look at the spec I expect that it would, although I try to only put a jack under the recognised jacking points.

Photo's aren't my strong point. :blushing
