Nice invention,
for a one man operation you may want to add a nut/jack-screw, it will allow you to change the height an inch or two without having to crawl out from under as many times just to set the height.

I like it. A one man operation has to come up with the best labour saving devices.
All this new steel I see on projects lately makes me envious. I get to work with rusted shit covered old stuff.

Where's the fun in using something like that? A floor jack maneuvered through the dirt and rocks, balancing the axle, jumping from one side to the other to slip it back to the center of balance...

Very nice job Digr. It will definitely save time and energy if you are doing a lot of this type of work.

I made one for a floor jack once for setting two 12 foot gates, rolled the jack on a piece of plywood.
