FRONT END JACKS FOR CUB

Mon Jul 05, 2004 6:14 pm

Had a couple of small adapters made for two 4T. bottle jacks that make lifting the front axle pretty simple. If anyone would like a set let me know, $15.00 plus shipping.

Hi Mike

I was wondering will those fit any 4 ton bottle jack ? About how much does it cost for two 4 ton bottle jacks as those you show, so I will know my total cost. Any idea how much they weight and shipping cost to N.H. One last questoin do you still need to put a block between engine and axle to keep her from tipping over. Sorry for all the questions, but they look pretty neat. Paul K in N.H.

Hi Paul

I looked at jacks at several places and wound up buying the least expensive "Made in China" ones at WalMart for $11.00 ea. The "Made in USA" jacks at NAPA were $45. I can't say for sure that they are all the same size pistons, but they look about the same. I would estimate $8. to $10. for shipping, and yes you must have a sturdy elevated base. I use a couple of 8X10 wood blocks...NO CONCRETE BLOCKS.
