Bottle jacks

Post by Finchburger » Wed Sep 12, 2018 1:30 pm

Hi folks, I'm looking into buying a bottle jack that will do a couple of vehicles in my household.
The bottle will have to be able to get under the car (once lowered with Eibachs) and high enough for the van.
Trolley jack is NOT an option as will take away for caravan use also.
As always, share your thoughts and ideas thanks.

hi, I think youll have difficulty, the bottle jack tends to have a short stroke and wont lift the van ver well, also the body of the jack accommodates the piston in closed position so its quite tall to start with, youd be better with a low trolley jack, you can get short ones that go as low as about 40mm and they are pretty light as some are made from aluminium although these are more expensive.
