ATV Jack Product Review

Greetings All,

If you have at least one ATV, then you should consider having an ATV jack to help speed up the required maintenance or repair chores, to get you back on the trail sooner. Our jack gets used every time we ride. No, not on the trail, but before and after almost every ride, here at the garage.

Our ATV lift gets used before almost every ride.

"Why?" you ask, simple. Being able to lift the quad off the ground with makes all the routine maintenance go a bit quicker.

Let's face it, with the tires off the ground,

The tires can be spun and the rims checked for dings, dents, or cracks.

Chain adjustment is super fast, taking a couple of minutes, from start to finish.

Check shock or strut travel, and inspect bushings and bearings.

Inspect or replace brake pads or shoes, check brake lines for damage.

Oil change is faster and simpler, since you have better access to the drain plug.


Our jack also gets used after almost every ride.

Here it is used mostly for cleaning up, with the quad off the ground, getting soap and water to all the dirt is much easier, without all the back bending to look underneath the ATV.

And if your ATV Garage is shared with one or more "other vehicles", the ATV jack is worth its weight in gold. You can scoop and lift your quad from anywhere in the garage, and roll it wherever, without all the back and forth, and bar turning, you know what I mean. This is especially handy when it is time to clean out the garage. Really handy.

Check out the photos to see the features of this ATV jack.

The jack limit is displayed on the face of the hydraulic jack, and this one is rated at 1500 lbs. This should be more than enough to lift your ATV, no matter what size it is.

The bar running across the photo at an angle, that is the lift lock. When not in use, there is a wire clip that holds it place, out of the way.

Notice too, that the frame pads are riveted in place. And at the pads edges, there is a small metal stop, to keep the ATV from sliding on the jack.

With the lock bar in place, even if the jack valve is opened, the ATV will not lower to the ground, where someone's feet or hands may be. This is an excellent safety feature, be sure to use it!

Once the jack screws are turned down, I remove the extension handle as well. Less temptation for the "helpers".
