Bottle Jacks - What do you own and do you use it?

I'm gearing up our Super C for a year long trip. Currently in the market for a Jack and am looking at a manual jack. I see the Air jacks which would be awesome if I had air, but I don't.

What do you guys use?

On my C, I welded an angle across the frame and bolted on scissor jacks on outside edge. Use a battery drill to run up and down. Works great.

Haven't got one yet, but for our old class A was thinking of getting a 20,000lb bottle jack & appropriate jack stands for once I start tinkering underneath! Good luck with whatever you decide & have a great year of experiences

Well, Harbor Freight has a 12 ton Air/hydraulic jack with manual "option" (that is it's a standard bottle jack, works both ways, Manual or Air.)

Since this 13 ton overall rig is a Gasser I don't have compressed air either... Less I plug in the thing I got at Sears.. Then I have 150 PSI.

Harbor Freight sells one nearly as good.
Home is where I park it!
