Trolley jacks cost considerably less than the lifting bags!!

Cheapest I could find on fleabay is ninety quid.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I wouldn't want to upset you by telling you how much I paid for mine.

If I had to pay anywhere near £90 I'd be getting the O/H to lift the M/H up whilst I piled some bricks up under the axle.
cabby and cabby like this.

Help someone out when they're in trouble and they'll remember you when they're in trouble again.

Mine is a 2 ton, about £80, from Costco and very similar to the equivalent snap on tools one. Although I do use it to lift one corner of my van I get the feeling that it is on its limit and I do have to use a lot more effort to pump than the bigger commercial ones that I have used. I'd be happier with a 3 ton one.

Cheers
Bill

I used to carry a small 3ton trolley jack, it was not much bigger than those 2ton ones.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.
