High Boy ATV Jack

Project Outline

This proposed project is to design and build a jack for a modified/lifted all terrain vehicle (ATV). Modified ATVs have higher ground clearance than standard ATVs, so most jacks do not offer adequate lift. A jack that will meet the height, stability and functionality requirements is desired.

Defined Requirements

  • Deliver an overall lift height of 22 inches.
  • Operate with 12 inches of vertical arm travel
  • Have an 1100 pound lift capacity
  • Be portable by one person (will have wheels, collapsible handle, and fit through a standard door)
  • Powered by conventional shop air supplied by a compressor
  • Pressure gage for visual on system pressure during operation
  • Utilize pressure regulator in the air delivery system
  • All air lines securely mounted and shielded from moving parts
  • Airbags to be mounted so that they operate in usable limits set forth by manufacturer
All projects must consider safety and material issues.
