    I currently use my trailer gate to change my blades along with a electric impact and portable jump starter with a 110 outlet to change my blades. I recently added air springs to my F150 which raised the front of my trailer up so it is level. Now I am having problems getting my impact under the blade bolts. Does the Jungle Jack give enough clearance to get a electric impact under it. As I am writing this thread I am realizing that a air impact isn't as long as a electric impact so what I need to know is does a Jungle Jack lift higher than a trailer gate?

    Well, I would measure them. You can get the height of your trailer ramp and you can compare that to the height of the Jungle Jack from their website. I made one based on the lift sold by Ballard, Inc of Des Moines. They have all of their measurements listed for their lift. Of course, I didn't copy it, but desisgned my own.

    Well I believe you could. I got a 32" metro and it lifts it high enought. My standers, it lifts much higher. Since the deck is shorter, the angle is steeper, so more room is given.

    Own a stander, must own a jungle jack. Trust me.

    Own a Kubota ZD, no need for a Jungle Jack.

    It's the best $150 you'll spend. The jack works wonders w/ all my equipment...walkbehinds, and ZTRs. You should have absolutely no issues with clearance and you'll kick yourself for not getting one sooner. I know I did.
