Hi-Lift All Purpose Mechanical Jack - 7000-Lb. Capacity, Model# HL-484
Tough, Versatile Jack
This jack is versatile enough to lift tractors, cars, trucks or trailers with ease. Can be used as winch, to pull posts from ground, to clamp workbenches or other pieces you want to glue, or to tighten fence. Built solidly but you need to keep it lubricated for it to work really well. Since it's so strong, be careful when you are letting things down so the handle doesn't get out of control.

If you lower the jack all the way it won't engege. It has to be raised a foot or so to get started.

Broken Wooden Fence Post
Last fall my neighbor's tree fell during a strom falling on my fence snapping its 5x5 wooden post even with the ground. I drilled a hole in the top of the post screwed in a large eye, attached a strap and used the jack to pull the post out (over 30 inches of post were in teh ground). The jack had the broken post out of the ground in a matter of seconds, in all I pulled 5 broken post in no time at all. Using the jack saved me from digging out all of the broken post which could have taken a few hours to finish the job.

JACK IT--DRAG IT--ROLL IT with a High Lift Jack
Recently, a sports car owner was shocked to discover that a antique sports roadster in storage in a barn had become trapped by a tree growing up between the vehicle and the concrete wall immediately next to the vehicle. Further, the rear tire was flat on the same side as the tree. Using a High Lift Jack, he raised the rear of the vehicle three feet and placed a skid under the rear tires. Moving the jack to lie on the pavement to be in-line with the skid, he jacked the skid out away from the wall until he had clearance around/by the tree.
But, there was a second problem, an elevated pad had been poured blocking the path to the street.
He fabricated a large skid and with the vehicle chained to the skid, use the High Lift Jack to drag the skid about twenty feet turning the skid ninety degrees and dropping it eighteen inches to be able to let the vehicle be rolled to the street with a new tire installed. The High Lift Jack is a incredible, versatile essential tool that anyone with a RV , Off -Reading or just moving heavy loads needs. The above was accomplished by one individual on a weekend.

A must for Jeep owners
If you own a four wheel drive, with any kind of a lift package...this jack is a must. It not only is tall enough to get those over-sized tires on, but it works as a come-a-long when you need it. Got a Wrangler..You better get the jack.

Small yet powerfull
For the size and price I couldn't find a better tool. It has pulled my truck out of the mud in the woods more than once. I had to replace the supports on a rear deck to a mobil home. It performed even better than I suspected it would. It lifted and held the deck in place while realigning the supports. Never slipped and lifted the deck with ease. I was under the deck a lot and never worried about my safety. I make sure it's always in the back of the truck.

can't be beat
Short of a winch, this is the best tool an off-roader (4x4) could carry. It has helped remove SO many vehicles I've lost count, and I've not had to replace 1 part in the over 10 years I've owned it!!! These things are absolutely amazing!
