A common issue experienced when jacking, especially in the terrain four wheel drivers take their vehicles (sand, mud, dirt) is the jack sinking into the ground under load. To alleviate this the smaller footprint of the jack needs increasing. Included in the new Roadsafe Jack accessory program is an upgraded universal style bottle jack base plate measuring a whopping 205x460mm.
The large 205x460mm 'Big Boy' plate, has been designed to provide the ultimate in jack stability. The 'Big Boy' gives you 940 square centimetres (145 square inches) of jacking safety! The widened & lengthened base is 4 times more stable than the jack on its own, and the size of the base makes supporting loads on soft surfaces very easy - with the footprint up to (depending upon the original jack size) 10 times larger. For example a typical 6 ton bottle jack lifting 2700kgs would have a ground loading of approx. 28kg per square centimetre – but with the 'Big Boy' that is reduced to only 2.8kg per square centimetre. Manufactured in 3mm steel, with an additional 3mm steel centre plate, the base is shaped with 'sled' style ends & convenient handles so it can be easily positioned & carried, and is designed to suit for a huge variety of bottle jacks with height & position adjustable fixings.
4 Times more stable, 10 Times larger footprint All of this adds up to... Heaps more Stability!
