    Fortunately where I live our sheriff knows just about everything that goes on He stops by some mornings for coffee and to see what new fangled thing I have come up with.
    As far as other uses the jack will be put to lots of uses 1 being that of a lift the wife's riding mower I plan to make a set up to hook under the front or rear to lift it for servicing the blades and such
    Another use will be as an elevating work table
    Once I finish working on the Mack I have a rear end to change out on a Masda pickup the jack is so strong it can be used to lift the pickup several feet off the ground then I'll put my jack stands under it and use the jack to remove the rear end. Also have to put a clutch in a pickup so it will get used as much as I was hoping to just have another piece of shop art to roll around out of the way.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Having faced the same riding mower ground hugging issue I put a hand crank winch with a pullie at the roof-line of our wood-shed to hoist up the front of the lawn tractor, can put er right back on er haunches. Saves so much time n trouble.

    Eric I normally use my jib crane with the chine hoist but cannot always get it near the crane so the jack will serve as a good substitute

    As the fellow who taught me some blacksmithing said. If it works, it's right.
