The versatility of the Ironman 4x4 Hi-Lift Jack makes it one of those tools makes it an irreplaceable recovery device. Its primary role has always been to lift vehicles up or over obstacles in a recovery role. The high lifting capacity means rocks and logs can be packed under wheels and the vehicle driven away. The jack can come in especially useful in river crossings on rocks and holes or to break the suction of mud prior to winching. The jack can be used to lift the front or rear of a vehicle and rock the vehicle off the jack so it ‘falls’ onto firmer terrain.
