Torin 7000-Lb. 48" Farm Jack (TR6501) By Torin Jack 5/31/05 Stars5.gif (1046 bytes) Write Review
"Multi-functional tool is great for lifting tractors or heavy trucks, puling posts and poles, and even serves as an all-purpose hoist or winch."
Apparently Hi-Lift's patent has expired, so now there's a cheaper alternative that has received a very positive review from a LOST member.
