George Radion in Australia has a database on Australian-made Jacks

This database is for vintage and classic SkyHi vehicle jacks.  Many of the photos and comments have been gleaned from Ebay and other sites.  I would be pleased to add photos and comments from anyone who has information on these jacks.

Please note that this information is accurate to the best of my knowledge, but I make no claims about authority on this subject. Use your own discretion when evaluating the accuracy of the information.

Many of these jacks are now very old.  I would recommend that they are now used only for display purposes.  If one is used for lifting a vehicle, the operator should never put them self underneath the supported area without additional load bearing equipment in place, such as block of wood. Never use bricks for this purpose.

The values are normally taken from auction sites world-wide, but exclude postage.

Request to vendors: Please feel free to use the information from these databases in your adverts. An acknowledgement of the source would be most welcome. However, please do not twist any of the information. Where I say along the lines: 'May be for car X' please make this clear in your advert. An altered statement saying: 'It is for car X' will create false facts and misinformation. If you know for certainty a jack's heritage please contact me so that I can amend the entry. Thank you.

SkyHi - AEC Matador Artillery Tractor

Description:

The photo R2 on the left is a 1942 AEC Matador Artillery Tractor showing what I believe to be A SkyHi jack. I have very little information about the jack and would welcome information.

The bottom of the axle is 17.5" above the ground. Allowing for tyre deflation I suspect the jack closed height to be in the order of 15". This would also allow it to retained by the top holding strap (yellow arrow) in the second photo which is 13.5" high. The lower restraining strap (red and green arrow) is 3" thick and has a 4.5" diameter (jack body diameter). The base needs to be less than 6.5" x 5.5" to fit the floor bracket.
