TIPS FOR SAFER LIFTING
1 JACKS are designed for lifting, not holding. If you want to swing your legs under your 4x4, ensure it’s sitting on a stand, not a bag of hot air.
2 Unless your idea of a fun weekend is a lungful of exhaust gas, you’ll need to be careful both inflating and deflating the jack.
3 Things can go pear-shaped when performing any recovery. Keep everyone out of the 4x4 and the immediate areas, especially if working on a hill.
4 Despite their ability to lift massive weight, exhaust jacks will rarely handle more than 10psi.
5 4x4s can and will fall off jacks, no matter what they’re made of. If you’re lifting a 4x4, it needs to be chocked.
