How high will the hummer jack lift?

H1 jack arrived. Funny box at one end appears to be gear reduction (3.5ish:1) -weld a nut on each end to get the best of both worlds using an impact. Lifts to around 20" in stock form. No leaks so far haha.

Ya, I am planning to put a short extension on the top. Will be used on a truck with less than 20" from the ground to an a-arm.
Shipping weight says 25lb, now sure how accurate that is.

We tried the scissor type jack once and it didn't work. Wasn't that particular one though. Problem was once the tire was flat and the truck was low the jack had to be all the way down to lift, at this point there was no leverage in the jack to bring the truck up. We had to wait for the crew to get there with a hydro jack. They were close so we didn't need to fiddle with the scissor jack anymore.

SAW use to make some air actuated jacks that you could use a PowerTank with. They were pretty good and would lift one side of the car/ truck.

I just bought the Radflo Hydr-Jac from Klm Performance and I love it. it is not slow at all I can get the corner of my race truck off the ground in about 4 pumps it is also very light and compact. I was looking at the King to but decided it wasnt the best fit as you need a drill to operate the King Jack the Radflo jack is made of good material and Aaron at KLM Performance said it was 100 percent made in the USA.

Here is where I bought it, PM me if you would like some pictures

Only rated for 2200 lbs lift capacity. That might be fine for lighter vehicles, but wouldn't be advisable for e.g. the front end of a stock full, or the front end of a diesel chase truck.

Kevin Bunderson made me up a clean, easy in/out mount for our Radflo jack
