Look what Secret Santa brought me...

I'm fed up with trolley jacks lasting five minutes so I asked Secret Santa for one of these.
Used it yesterday for the first time and its so fricking easy it's untrue.
Great thing is it will slide under the F27 as well as the tintop - result!
Airjack

Good question - those are 18" wheels and I hadn't put the appropriate jacking block in at that point so I reckon at least 12" (300mm).
Deflated 5" (120mm approx.).
There are triple bag ones available for higher lift but I was more concerned with it fitting under cars lower than the BMW which it does.
Also just be aware the inlet fitting as supplied is metric so if your airline is Imperial you will need a suitable male threaded inlet or adaptor.

I've had an eye on jacks like this for some time. What specific model is this?
Does it operate smoothly? I saw a youtube video of a cheaper model and it was dangerously jerky

It works smoothly but that could have more to do with the air supply rather than the jack itself.
Bought it from Aveno.co.uk
BTW since I bought it I did a Trustpilot on them. They have a 50/50 rating...

That looks like it's lifting on a piece of plastic trim...

What are you doing to your trolley jacks? All mine are decades old and work just fine.

Nah, optical illusion - its under the jacking point with the contoured BMW jacking pad behind the trim.

Trolley jacks have all leaked from the O ring around the main piston (?) - you buy cheap, you get cheap and presumably the seals are naff..
In fact the only one which hasn't leaked is my year's old 5 tonne one. That's a proper trolleyjack but too cumbersome to get under the hairdressers...
