A Tractor Jack You Can Drive On

Our British correspondent Andy Sewell recently spotted a new-style tractor jack from an Irish company. The new jack is designed to make it easier to service rear brakes which, he says, go bad too often because so much equipment is trailered on narrow roads. And the trailers often either have poor brakes, or none at all. So the tractors do all the work.
  The new TrakJak from PFE farm equipment slips under the rear end and fastens securely to the tractor’s 3-pt. hitch. Tractor hydraulics are used to raise the rear end off the ground so the rear wheels can be removed. Once the brakes, or rear end, have been repaired, the tractor can be driven around on hard ground with the jack in place to test the repair before replacing the tires (you can see a video of a tractor moving with jack in place at farmshow.com).
