We have officially hit our first road-block.
While Kiah and I were lifting the trailer with our 30-ton jack (which worked fabulously), we put the cinder blocks underneath the axle and it all worked out fine until we began lifting the landing gear. The weight transferred to the axle and sliced through the cinder blocks like bread.
Now we are in thinking mode.
We need something that will hold the weight of the trailer (20Klbs.+), and the pressure of the 30-ton jack. The concrete blocks we bought were rated for about 2000lbs of psi, we need a lot more than that.
We've looked up material with high PSI and found that certain types of wood can hold much more PSI than the cinder blocks. We'll test that and see.
So far, we've designed a way to test the material to see if it can hold the weight so it doesn't put either of us in danger.
If any of you have any legit recommendations, please let us know!
