Hi ouens. Ons soek 'n bead breaker (daai tipe wat jy onder aan 'n Hi-lift jack se poot sit om die bead te breek) vir 'n paar foto's oor hoe om 'n band af te haal.
Wie in die Kaap kan my help? Asseblief!!

Jy kan die hi lift direk op die band sit en jack, miskien 2 of 3 keer langs mekaar tot dit mee gee :thumbup:

Personally, I would NOT use a HiLift jack.
Looking at these pictures makes me think....

You can buy a bead breaker from 4x4 Megaworld. There is nothing wrong with a high lift jack. The problem is you get idiots that don't know how to use it properly. If you know how to use it , it is the most valuable piece of equipment with more uses than a swiss army knife.

I would fall into the camp of "idiots that don't know how to use it properly", so I would not use it to de-bead.
Guess I need to learn... :blushing:

Roy, don't feel bad, one just needs to go on a course to learn how to operate it properly when you buy one. It can be extremely dangerous in the wrong hands. Alot of the stuff is common knowledge, the problem is not everyone has common knowledge. You should ask Thys to do a course down there on how to use a high lift jack.

Soos my Pa altyd sê: Common sense ain't common...
Ek sal dit ook nie self probeer as iemand my nog nie gewys het nie, maar dan kom die groot vangplek.
As dit jou enigste opsie is in die middel van die bos, dan kom die kennis dat dit wel werk tog handig te pas... :blackeye: Pasop net vir die handle wat terugswaai!

One thing to remember with a high lift jack is NEVER use one hand.

I reckon if you strike a hi-lift with the right type of stone, you can get a spark to start a fire? Truly remarkable...
Ons het nou maar besluit om die foto's te neem sonder die tipe bead breaker. Dit is in elk geval nie iets wat jy algemeen kry nie.

If you don't use the jack correctly, you can also make tenderised face (very much like tenderised steak!)

You get tenderised face because people use one hand and when that handle slips you are in trouble. One should always keep some Q20 so you can spray the moving parts everytime you use it because they get sticky and will cause an accident if it jumps out.
