Halon carnation, this video, we're going to take a first look and try out the jungle jack from Jungle Jim's, accessory products, coming up any long hair, nation, jungle gyms.
Accessory products sent me out this jungle Jack for me to check out use and review in my lawn care business to share my feedback with you guys here in lawn care nation.
Now, I first saw this jungle jack in person at the gie Expo 2019.
When I was touring the jungle gyms, accessory booth, I'll leave a link to that video if you're interested in watching it at the end of this video.
Now, when I first saw this unit at gie, Expo, 2019 I was immediately impressed with it.
Not only with the simplicity in its design, having no real moving parts or no potential failure points like hydraulics.
You know, in this particular design, but also with the ease of use.
And just how little effort was required to seemingly raise up a large heavy zero, turn mower.
So let's, unbox, it and see what's included inside.
So inside it looks like we've got a few parts to assemble let's.
Take a look.
So it looks like a few wheels, some handles the hook and some hardware.
Ok? So as you can see, I've got all of the parts out of the the packaging laid out and I'm, just gonna take a moment and put it all together.
So stay tuned.
So there you have it I got it all together overall.
It was pretty straightforward.
Took about 30 minutes, total there abouts to lay out all the parts, get organized I, get the ratchet and wrench that I needed look at the instructions.
And you know, get it all put together, but really easy really straightforward.
If you're looking for a detailed assembly video on this particular unit, jungle gyms, accessory products has a great step-by-step video on their YouTube channel, I'll, leave that video linked here in the card above.
So now that we got it together, let's have a look at some of the features.
So you can see it's a pretty straightforward design here.
You know, very very simple, no hydraulics on it, which I really liked it actually uses leverage to lift up your mowers.
So very compact in, you know, terms of how skinny it is easy to store away.
You can even you know carry this with you in a trailer quite easily.
So once you have this positioned under your more, you've got the hook here, that's going to go under the deck or larger mowers.
You have this foot assist here with this pin, you just pull the pin out, and you can drop this foot assist here.
So that when it's positioned underneath the more you can, in addition to holding the handles, you can put your foot here use your body weight to help swing the more up in position.
And then once you have the more up in its secured position, they've got a safety feature here to prevent the jack from being lifted up by anybody, or you know, the weight of the machine may be pulling the jack out of place.
So you can just pull this little safety pin out.
And then this safety foot drops in place, put your pin back in with the safety.
And now that foot is secured in place and that's going to prevent the jack from coming back up and swinging with the weight of the machine and keeps it nice safe and secure while you may be under the machine working okay.
So according to some of the specs on the Box, this unit can lift virtually any type of mission from any position, and it can hold up to 800 pounds on this hook and will lift a mower approximately 19 inches in the air.
So let's get this on the ground and give it a shot.
So let's give this a shot according to the instructions, we just take that hook there put it under the deck and then use our body weight and leverage to lift the mower up.
So the first step would be to release this pin out so that we can get our foot assist, ready to go.
Then we just slide the jack under the deck hooking, the deck, get it in a position drop that foot pedal down put our foot on.
It use our body weight.
And one fell swoop using leverage delivery more once we're in this position.
What you want to do is take that safety pin out and drop that safety foot, put the pin back in with your safety pin now that's gonna prevent the jack from coming back up or somebody accidentally knocking the jack while you're working under the machine, because you can see if I try to lift it now with that safety foot in place, that's about as high as I can bring the jack as far as how stable.
The mower is see I can shake it pretty good it's, not coming off of there tons of space underneath to change your mower blades, clean out your deck, whatever you need to do.
So now to lower the mower back down, it's, basically the reverse we have to remove that safety pin.
So we can put the safety foot back up and put the pin back in.
So it doesn't accidentally drop that safety foot back down for ending us from lowering the mower.
Now, the mower is ready to come back down I'm gonna slowly lift it and then I'm going to drop the safety foot get my foot on it and slowly bring it down slide the unit back out.
So there you go guys very simple to use as you can see and also really really secure once the more is up there with this particular mower it's got that floating deck with the four pins.
So there is movement in the deck once you lift it with the jack that deck is gonna, you know, kind of rise up through those pins once it gets to a spot where it can lift the more.
And the reverse is true.
When you're lowering the more as it comes down.
Now, you're gonna have a bit of play as that deck comes down as well with other units that have a single.
You know, point of height adjustment, you probably won't have as much play in the deck as you do with the the style of decks, but overall super simple to use, and it looks like a fantastic unit.
So there you have it lawn care nation, the jungle jack by jungle gyms, accessory products as you could see, it did a really great job.
Lifting my starter stand on more was super stable.
Once the moor was up in the air.
And with that safety foot down, there was no worry about the jacket collapsing or the moor coming back down on its own on that particular more weighing eight hundred pounds.
It was very very simple to lift up may require a little bit more effort.
You know, the bigger your mower gets, but using you know, leverage and your body weight, you know, very very simple.
You know, as you saw from even that clip from that large zero turn mower being lifted up at gie.
So a very very handy unit and I love that it's a very compact easy to store.
And you know, has no hydraulics or other moving parts that are, you know, prone to failure over the years.
