This is a Jack... my grandson Jack. That is a Ural. Does not work particularly well when it comes to elevating the rig, but it is a good time. The neighbor's dog, Avery, is not of the slightest help.

Small screw jack. Better than the scissor or hydraulic jacks I carried in the past.

Hey Windy, you’ve been quiet lately, where you been?
What kind of a handle/whatever are you using to make your jack go Up and down?
I like to weld a 3/4” nut on the finger wheel so I can use a ratchet, wrench, or speed bar/socket . I'm curious what you’re doing, maybe you came up with something better.

Happy trails,

It came with a 3 section folding crank handle that's about 54" long opened up. It has a hooked lip that sort of latches into the square hole in the finger wheel, makes it real easy to use.

My M70 has been gas-n-go, and is my daily transportation so I don't have much to say since commuting, and scheduled maintenance aren't very interesting. Finding and rebuilding old military and camping Gasoline stoves and lanterns has become my outlet for tinkering and fixing things.

I expend enough energy working and doing chores, if I get a flat out on the road I want the quickest, easiest method available as they seem to come in inopportune times and places.

All showboating and ego stroking aside; I carry a small unidentified scissor jack, modified with a 3/4" nut welded to the screw so that you can use a wrench or ratchet to operate it, no need to carry around a bulky handle. It also has a small piece of angle iron welded to the top to make it grab under frame better. I can't seem to find a photo on my computer but I'll try to take one later and post it up.
gobium does have a trick with a 2"x4" that seems to work pretty well, maybe he'll share that, if he's not to busy feeding his ego.

By the way, Welcome aboard! :cheers:

Happy trails,
Jaybird

I have a mechanical screw jack somewhere that I also welded a nut onto, I can't seem to find that though, it's probably holding something up.

The nice thing about these jacks (whether it be “scissor” or “mechanical screw”) is that they were designed to lift a corner of a car/truck... so very little effort is required to lift even the heaviest part of our rigs... I use basically a glorified screwdriver to turn mine...

On my scissor Jack I use a ratchet handle. The square male part fits into the Jack female

I got one of these:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009W ... UTF8&psc=1

I like it but it's larger and heavier than I realized, but high quality.

I use the same kind of jack as S 854.
Mechanical screw-type "bottle jack," no hydraulic fluid to leak.
They have been standard equipment in cars for years so you find them cheap at junkyards, swap meets, etc.
Mine is from a Jeep Cherokee, so it it can easily lift the whole bike.
The gear ratio is such that you can turn it with a large screwdriver, no need to even bring the jack handle.

29 lbs? Put brackets on it and use it as a skidplate, double duty.

We say this at least once an off-road ride when someone needs lifting/towing/tugging out of a situation.

I've found them abandoned on the side of the trail, David just picked up a nice scissor jack on our last ride. One of the best ways to acquire one :D
More fun than buying one.

+1, consistent with my affection for old technology, this Model "T" Jack is perfect (& easy) for URAL lifting. It is NOW painted gloss black, with a gloss white tip on the handle. Glued leather into the curved lifting shoe = DELUXE. Highly recommended.

Hydraulic bottle jacks are always oily
Scissors jacks always fall over while cranking to adjust
small $25. dollar roll around floor jack are good - but bulky & fade when old.
