Exhaust Air Jack

Exhaust_Jack
When you get a flat tire you have a couple of options… you can tackle it like a man and just jack up the car like you should, or you can be a wimp and call recovery to do it for you. For those of you who hate getting on your knees, putting the jack in place and flexing your muscles there is now an alternative option named the Exhaust air jack.

The exhaust air jack is a bright orange bag which you throw under the side of your car. Once there, you hook up the pipe to your exhaust and switch on your engine. The exhaust fumes that are pumped out go in to the bag and will jack up the car within 30 seconds. The bag can lift the car 17 inches off the ground which is plenty of space to allow you to get the wheel off. To prevent exhaust fumes escaping there is a one way valve in to the bag which allows you to switch off the engine while keeping the bag inflated. There are other benefits of owning this product too as it works in in mud, snow and on uneven surfaces.

The Exhaust Air Jack costs $129.95.

Interesting… I’ve seen air-bag jacks in the past but they always relied on an air pump to the the lifting… using exaust is inventive (I’ve also see an off road truck with a spark-plug hose fitting to a “chuffer” valve that used compressed engine cylinder air to power the valve that inflated tires on the trail, but that was exhaust/fuel free due to the value).

1) I wonder what the jack smells like after being pumped up with exhaust. :p

2) I wonder if dual exhaust systems would work on this… it seems like the exhaust would start exiting the “untapped” pipe after the jack bag starts to exhibit a certain amount of backpressure.

3) i wonder how heavy that canvas (or whatever) jack is and how much space it takes up in the trunk… defintely not a sportscar solution. ;)

Cool idea for single-enhaust trucks who face unstable terrain when off-road. Sure beats carrying around 2×8 planks to brace a bottle jack on muddy ground… thuogh I imagine clean-up’s a PITA. :p

I bought one and it leaked from the sealing point on third lift, thanks God it didn’t burst but as soon as joint opened exhaust released a little smoother and the flattened tire was still on it. i wonder what would have happened if there was no tire on it that time. So wish you luck with that if you have already bought one but keep back up system of jack(As after lifting vehicle with air bag no effort will be required to crank open the screw jack to lifted height)
take care
