Just like any tool, read and understand the directions. Adhear to those directions religiously and possible accidents are reduced tremendously. I have used hi lift jacks in many extreme circumstance and have never come close to having a problem. Safety is number 1 in all tool use.Amazing transference, from Hi Lift jack to push/roll starting an automatic Trans to Pulaski’s. I have owned and used HiLift jacks and like any special tool you most know how to use it and it’s limitations and quirks. Here in Alaska I have and continue to use both, my HiLift and my Pulaski.
Well said.....I have carried one in a Jeep since 1976, and it has come in handy several times, and I'm glad I had it with me.I carry a Hi-Lift in my Jeep. It’s securely mounted, inside, out of the way, and the mechanism protected from the elements. I feel very confident that I know how to use it, in fact I was trained on its many uses like vehicle extrication, heavy rescue, forcible entry, and I find it useful at home and on the trail. They’re not for everybody, if you get one learn to respect it and if you don’t I can respect that too. I trained with SacMetroFire, Roseville Fire, Sunnyvale Police and Fire and I used to train the El Dorado County Firefighters Academy and the Georgetown Fire Dept. Guns aren’t for everyone either.
