Hilka Pro-Craft 2-Tonne Jacking Beam
Good price & well made
This is a good solid bit of kit and has a 2 tonne max lift Capacity only when arms are not extended ! then on max adj its max load is reduced to 600kg ! i purchased this useful item to go on my 3.5 tonne Arcan XL35R pro jack but wouldnt fit as the bottom threaded disc that you bolt the jacking bean to that sits under the jack plate after removing the jacking pad mount wouldnt go under the mounting plate as a support bar that cant be removed is in the way so i will have to use the original securing bolt that has an allen head and will drill out the centre to run a tap down it so i can securely bolt the jacking bean to my jack ! bit of messing about ! my only gripe would be its a shame they dont supply alternate assortment securing disks/bolts for universal use ! i know it says for use with garage jack (Code 51457). so cant comment if thats better but if you already have a good garage jack and just got one of these jacking beams you dont really want hassle moding your jack or spending Â£100 on another jack. Other than that as said its a good solid very useful addition to the jack.
