    Yes it works fine. Just to remember to keep it well lubricated. Get yourself some Wynnflon. Wynns product. It is an oil, but also has teflon in. Damn good stuff.

    The thing with hi-lift jacks (irrespective of brand) is that they basically stop working properly if they rust.

    But if you leave them bolted to the outside of your 4x4, they either rust (if not lubed heavily) or they become gunged up with dust.

    I once saw a guy who dismantled his and mounted the bits separately in the engine bay. Apart from taking a little longer to get it operational, that was actually a damn good idea...

    I haven't used mine a lot but it does seem to work. Ditto on the dust issues.

    That would be Malcolm in his Terrano. Would be nice if he came and posted some pics of that setup he did way back when. I remember seeing it the first time in 2008 at Rust de Winter.

    It was Malcolm, but in his Y60 Patrol. Perhaps he does it to all his 4x4's?

    There's a guy in Somerset West selling some odds in the classifieds, saw a hi-lift there...

    This was before Malcolm had his Patrol, back in 2008.

    I mount the bar, crank pole and foot on the roofrack and just the mechanism goes inside the drawer in at the back. jack is about 10 years old now and mechanism looks like new, bar is due a respray. I have seen many hi-lifts that are too rusted/ chocked with dust and dirt to function. The free operation of the pins is crucial and it does not take much to gum them up. A poorly operating hi-lift jack can be lethal.

    I watched a YouTube vid of a arb hilift. Awesome bit of kit but $800, so trusty farm jack is good alternative.

    They are nice though. I saw that on “Autoedits” YouTube channel. Just once again proves the little buying power we have through our weak Rand.

    Yip that’s the same place I saw it. If magnus heystek is to be believed, and I think he is, our buying power is going to get a lot weaker.

    I had a 48" Adendorfs jack that fitted under the One Ten's back seat. Stays clean and it was safer there.

    i personally prefer a dry lubricant like black lead. It comes in a powder form.mix with water and brush it on (like paint it on ) let dry and work it in ...dust will not effect it and it will not rust ...

    While we're talking about Adendorf, what are the winches they sell like? I believe they are made by Runva.

    I stare at that 4x4 page in the catalogue every damn day. From what i can see Mac-Africa/ Runva is the same winch.

    I also came across a Runva 8000 pound winch for R5700 @ https://www.saftrade.co.za/collectio...8000-lbs-winch. Iif its the same model (EWK 8000) at Adendorf then its R1400 cheaper.... At that price i really want to try it.

    I use powdered graphite powder in a puffer bottle as used by locksmiths. Lubricates very well without becoming sticky or attracting dust. Any comments?

    I always carry a couple of these little puffer bottles of graphite as they are also great for lubricatings tent zips and various other articles such as the HiLift mechanism.
