works great when mounting tires

"This is a great tool. A pair of pliers in reverse, actually. My favorite use for this tool(in absence of a wheel dolly) is when mounting tires and lifting the tire up to the lug nuts. If in dirt, I can dig under tire and insert after making sure lug holes will be mostly aligned with studs. If on cement, I can roll tire over tool and lift up to stud level. have done this with up to 20 in truck tires."

Ram is good product

"Purchased this product to use in raising a concrete slab that had sunk below ground level. Worked very well with hand hydrualic pump that allowed slab to be raised 1/4 inch of less each time. By slowly raising the slab with the ram under it every 2 feet or so, I was able to get it back to level"

Torin Big Red Ram Spreader

,
November 18, 2008
By Ted2176
from Boston, MA
"I bought the Torin Big Red Ram Spreader to move my boat engine.
I had to shift the engine right and left to align the propeller shaft. I was struggling.
I already had an hydraulic hand pump but i didn't have a little spreader. I needed a little spreader to get into the small space available in the boat.
l looked up spreaders on Northern Tool. I was a little skeptical about the Big Red Ram Spreader because of the low price but I ordered it anyway. The spreader came the next day. The casting looked very nice and the finish was very good. I finished the alignment job in less than 1 hour including changing the fitting to match my pump. I am very satisfied with the quality which is excellent for the price.
