Re: skoolie days

I just got my new scissor leveling jacks, they go up to 28 inchs high, and fold down to 4 1/2 inchs . there 7500 pounds each, the plan is to mount them at the back off the bus, not sure if on the frame, or make a mounting plate closer to the side of the bus. still to much snow on the ground to start to mount them.

Do you have a drill, or impact to crank them up?

Looking Good

Re: skoolie days

I have a socket that fits a drill, ill use a electric drill plug into generaor, I used my cordless drill to see how they worked but I think it will run out of poop if the jacks are underload. the jacks came with a hand crank and it worked ok. Im looking forward to installing them and haveing the bus more stable when camping
thank you

Re: skoolie days

If you ever want to upgrade to a set of cordless that will not let you down, I use the Dewalt 20 volt line everyday in demanding high production construction. Even in winter they perform almost side by side with my corded tools.



And it just so happens that your province has the cheapest price of anywhere on the net.

They do things so effortlessly, it becomes fun to use them.

Re: skoolie days

I got the exact same hitch, and it worked out fine. You had asked me to take some pictures, and I finally did that the other day while I was crawling around under there pondering water tank mounting issues, but haven't downloaded them from the camera yet. I'll post them on your thread here hopefully in the next couple days.

Re: skoolie days

thanks Dan, I was thinking it was the same as yours, looking forword to your pics, I played around a bit to see how it would fit and it looks like I can bolt it right to the sides of the frame, I would have to remove the brackets for the bumper, and drill some holes, then reinstall.I can have just at the bottom of the bumper, or I can mount it so that it goes right threw the bumper makeing it higher off the ground, but then you have to use a drop hitch.I see when I move the bus, right now we just have so much snow that you cant do that type of work.
