    Exhaust Recovery Jack

    $255.00 $204.00
    An exhaust jack is the perfect tool for recovering a four wheel drive vehicle stuck in deep sand or other areas where conventional jacks may sink, or when the vehicle is simply too low for any other jack to fit. If the vehicle is stuck up to the chassis rails, a thin area can be dug out just below the rails to allow for the deflated air bag jack to slip underneath. The design and included parts of the air bag jack then allow for it to be connected to the exhaust of the vehicle to inflate the jack. Once raised, the area underneath the vehicles wheels can then be filled in or have tracks placed below to provide extra grip, making for a painless recovery. With no moving metal parts, the exhaust jack is also safer than hi-lift jacks, and can be packed away in the supplied bag for convenient storage. Includes: Handy travel bag, gloves and accessories as pictured Safe working load: 3,000kg Maximum height: 78cm Core: Nylon with PVC coating Available Downloads: Shipping and online ordering only available within Australia.
