WARNING: These jacks are designed to be lightweight and compact.
Extra care must be taken to avoid damage to the jack, your snowmobile or yourself.
Please read and follow ALL instructions – we know it’s hard…
- Excessive pressure on the handle can bend or break parts.
DO NOT OVERLOAD your jack with too much weight or resistance. It should be easy to move the handle up and down. Clear snow from around the track if necessary.
- YOUR JACK IS DESIGNED FOR A SPECIFIC USE, which is to lift snowmobiles out of trenches in deep powder conditions.
- NEVER USE IN A GARAGE. The jack pole can slip on hard surfaces like concrete or plywood. And the snowmobile can tip over to the side as the jack was designed to do.
- WEAR GLOVES to protect your hands from burrs that form on the pole.
- DO NOT LEAVE GAPS when assembling (threaded segmented pole model) for strength and to reduce possibility of damage to parts.
- FASTEN THE STRAP SECURELY to your snowmobile and then place the loose end securely over the top groove of the jack mechanism.
- PLACE THE POLE IN A VERTICAL POSITION before lifting. It should not be angled towards or away from your snowmobile while lifting.
- NEVER WORK UNDERNEATH OR TO THE SIDE OF THE SNOWMOBILE. All persons should be clear of the snowmobile being raised, lowered, pushed, pulled or suspended.
- DO NOT PLACE JACK BASE ON TOP OF TRACK.
Make sure the base is clear of the track before lifting to avoid damage from prying the track and bumper apart. Damage to the jack and your sled may result.
- PUT HANDLE IN UPRIGHT POSITION before tripping the holding tab to lower the load in case you need to readjust. If the sled is suspended in the air be very careful that you are not under or too close to the jack and sled. If possible to safely do so, you can try to manually apply upward lift resistance to the sled bumper so it doesn’t drop down too quickly.
- DO NOT USE A BROKEN JACK. If any part of your jack fails to work properly, discontinue use and have it repaired or replaced.
- PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK for actually reading all this safety information. Thank you!
