    Re: Bumper Jack, Barbwire Fence Stretcher???

    I should probably post this under the section of "how well do you read posts" - but, I saw the question, and cannot pick out the answer - if it was given, about that chain. How long is it, and does it crank in and out with that handle/knobby thing?

    I'm pretty well convinced that the one "step" is for a foot to dig the device into the ground, or whatever, but, such a small handle, and what exactly is it doing - driving my limited brain-cells insane, too.

    And, just when we finally figured out the egg counter.

    Re: Bumper Jack, Barbwire Fence Stretcher???

    Ant ~

    A few itemized questions for you.

    Thanks.

    SBB

    1. Does the rod have slots in it?

    2. Is this a full gear that spins? And does the "pin" lock in place? If so, exactly how
    is this achieved?

    3. Is this portion of the handle rod fixed in place on top of a flange, or is it free to
    move?

    4. Does the knob on the end of the handle spin?

    5. Does the chain "reel" out, or is it short? If short, how is it attached? And is the
    loop on the end big enough to fit over the handhold portion of the rod as TT's
    hubby suggested?

    6. Does the bottom of the main rod come to a true point?

    P.S.Q. Is that an axel sticking out in the center of the gear?


    Thanks a lot. No hurry. Just whenever you get a minute.

    On that list of great questions, #2 on the diagram - that's on a ratchet type deal, right?

    Re: Bumper Jack, Barbwire Fence Stretcher???


    Hi all, thanks. Everybody that I know says itís too light for a bumper jack too. But the old guy insists that itís a tractor jack.

    Quote from the older gentleman:
    Trust me, it's an old tractor jack. I used one as a kid on the farm and the baseball field we maintained with an old tractor when I was older.
    I can't argue with him, he said he used the exact same tractor jack.

    Thanks Tony


    Ant ~

    Thanks for clearing that up for us. But if you already knew what it was and accept the old guy's opinion, then why did you post this as a "What Is It?" asking others to research it?

    The green checks make us all look good but I for one would like to see a link, matching pic or at least understand how it works. Does it just stick in the ground or a block of wood? Does the chain hook on top? It seems there must be something missing like a base for starters.

    Re: Bumper Jack, Barbwire Fence Stretcher???

    I acknowledge the green check mark ... and will let it go at that.

    But just for the record, I would like to challenge the oldtimer's opinion about the item as being a "true" tractor jack. I also acknowledge the tractor he is referring to may have been a small one. But even with this said, someone would have to demonstrate to me how it worked before I will ever believe it had the capability of "lifting" from a dead-weight position. Maybe, just maybe the oldtimer meant it was some type of "support/jackstand" used to hold the tractor in place "after" it was jacked up. "Jackstand" I will accept! But true "Tractor Jack" - no way! At least not based on the evidence as it currently stands!

    In fact, I will go so far as to say that the first person who can "prove" beyond a shadow of a doubt that it's a tractor jack, and explain "precisely" how it works, I will send them $20.00 cash, plus I will eat my hat ta'boot!

    I'm not trying to be a jerk or wise guy here, I'm just not convinced it's a tractor jack, no matter what the popular opinion may be.

    Final question to Ant : Have you tried to use it as a jack? If it still works - it should still jack something up weighing at least several hundred pounds.

    Respectfully,

    SBB

    It looks as if the pointed end would jack right into the ground if you were somehow able to crank the handle without breaking it or bending the handle.

    Re: Bumper Jack, Barbwire Fence Stretcher???

    We need much more information on this item. Some more pics for starters. A closeup of the HOO2. How long is the chain? Does it wind up on the spool? Is that a ratchet? A close up of the spool is needed. Are there any notches on the shaft? Does it slide up and down easily or does it have to be cranked?

    I looked back Ant and unless I missed it, it appears you havent answered any questions.

    No way is that a Jack for any vehicle....I have jacked up just about every type of vehicle, up to 70tons, that wouldn't lift a Toy Tractor
