Rapto Worx Hi Lift Jack Base to the rescue.......

Posted on

A customer that lives in Eastern Oregon was sure happy to have one of our Hi Lift Jack Bases with him while he was out running around in the mountains.  With the heavy snow that the Pacific Northwest has received this past winter things are still quite muddy and messy in the mountains.  And as you can tell from the photo's you know your stuck pretty good when you have chains, chainsaws, and multiple vehicles that are coming to your rescue.  Its these exact situations why we designed and built our Hi Lift Jack Base.  It can be a rare occasion when you need a Hi Lift Jack and an even rarer occasion when you need to use our Jack Base on the bottom of said jack, but when you need it - you really need it.  As is the case on this particular day when things are wet, muddy and slippery, Hi Lift Jacks can be quite treacherous; there's a reason we call them 'widow makers'.  Having our base attached to the jack can ad a lot of comfort and security to an already stressful situation.  As you can also see in one of the pictures that the jack was placed on top of a piece of wood to prevent the jack from sinking further into the ground.  The cleats around the perimeter of the jack base are put there specifically to dig in and grip wood or any other material that my be used in an emergency.  

I hear that our customer made it out safely which is some great news.  I also think our customer should get a few props for running around the mountains in a classic old school four-wheel drive with vintage hi lift jack as well. What do you think???
