Do I really need the 5 footer... can I do enough with the 4 foot model??


The 5' jack is only $6 more than the 4' jack - with free shipping.

I never had need to use a jack. They were either easy to get out, or had so much concrete on them that I had to just cut them off. If I did have one that only had a little concrete on it wouldn't a normal bumper jack work? Free if you have one.

What year was that last "car" built that had a bumper one could use a jack with? But yes what ever works. Most cars and truck for many years now just come with the small folding jack which is just a way to get hurt. The farm jack has ways to pull or push as needed to remove poles and posts. The 6 inch steel pole I set in with about 1200 pounds of cement will need more than a farm jack to remove. I did that install because of the fill sand around where I set up that dish. Still plumb after three years now.

Most of the folks who give me their old dish are very happy when I tell them I can remove the old pole. Part of what makes the farm jack method work so well is when you tie off the upper jack part along side of the upper sat pole. Then it does not just fall over but most of the pulling energy is sent into lifting the pole and cement out of the ground.

I remember seeing an old picture of how farmers once removed tree stumps. They dig down and cut the outer roots off then strap off a long heavy pole to the tree stump and horses walking in a circle around the stump pulling on the long pole would twist off the rest of the hard to get at tree roots.

Another way  is just dig and dig down along one side of the pole. Then while connected at the top of the pole just pull it over and then out of the ground. Still you need something big and heavy to pull with like a 4X4 truck and room to get the truck in position. All this is why I use a farmers jack and a small amount of digging. My truck is hard on some folks nice grass.

Option "B" is offer to install a nice bird house on the still stuck in the ground pole. Makes some folks happy!

Nice find there bud...She is on an H-H also...If I did not already have 1001 projects I would take that trip to Asheville...That is only the 2nd dish that was installed in NC with an H-H mount I have ever seen.Am sure there is more but not on any Sunday afternoon drive around many counties I have taken!..Not a common install back in the day here in the South East...There is a 12 foot Paraclyse located less than 3 miles from here but not with a H-H...Performance I have read and heard from others that the dish is not the greatest of performers for its size but the mount alone would be worth the trip for someone in this neck of the woods!

Yeah he really came down on the price in the last few days. It was listed at 500.00. I would love to have it for the mount also. Distance and health stand in my way.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
