Eliminates the frustration of having unstable jacks that conflict with landing gear components and gear doors adjacent to your jack point. These jacks are especially appreciated by owners of Bonanza, Mooney, Comanche, & Twin Comanche Aircraft for the manner in which they may be positioned clear of the inner gear door hinge. Model #324 provides an easy slide under fit on aircraft with lower jack points.
When they work they work great. I like the design, clears Baron gear well. Unfortunately, out of the 4 jacks weve had (Two 326 cylinder jacks and two of these 324 cylinder jacks), 3 of the cylinders have had leaks and were removed from service by our GSE shop.
