  • I have an old original one, and it works perfect. It is amazing how well it does work. As Tim Daley's pictures show, it raises all four wheels/tires in one very swift movement.
    Mine is not for sale, as I like having it around, however, I strongly recommend them.

  • Dexter-
    As mentioned, no, these nifty tools are no longer made as is with all vintage equipment except for a handful of tillage and baler parts. Add too the fact that OSHA would not allow it. The plans we have here were put together years ago by a guy, Skip White I believe, aka 'Cargo Cult'. You assume all responsibility if you make your own. Here is a scan of the original operating instruction sheet from our MANUALS library so download and keep it handy regardless if you buy a used one or make your own. These work great for changing out tires/wheels -it's fast and easy once you know how to use it. There weren't that many made but seem to pop up all the time in ads and internet auction sites. I have seen these go at farm auctions for $25. Some are not complete -they are missing the front bracket and/or the attached chain. The most desirable units have a Dearborn ID Tag, an earlier Ferguson-Sherman tag, or an extremely rare K-P MFG tag. When Ferguson went to England to build his TE-20 tractor, he stole the prints for the K-P jack and had his own built there too.

  • You could make your own, there are plans in the "how to" section in the red bar at the top of the page.

  • Pretty sure no one makes them new anymore. They sometimes come up on ebay. You might try putting a WTB ad in the ads forum.
