  • Hi-Lift/Pull Pale Install

    Hi,

    I was wondering if you can just install the Hi-Lift to the hi-lift/pull pale mount accessory to the AEV tire carrier ? I currently do not have a pull pale.

    thanks

      Can you also use the shovel carrier with a high lift mounted?

        The shovel handle needs to be shortened. I'm still looking for a shovel that will seat firmly with my Hi Lift mounted. At EJS I was told that AEV would have a part number for a shovel that works well with the Hi Lift/Pull Pal mount.

          Same here ... I tried the one from Lowes that was mentioned on here a few weeks back (presumably for use on vehicles without the hi-lift mount), but it didn't work on mine. That said, I don't think it would've worked even if I wasn't running the hi-lift mount.

            Shovel fitment was a trial and error proposistion for me. I bought and returned half a dozen shovels before finding one I was happy with and it still required a bit of trimming of the handle. Then whan I added the Hi-Lift mount I had to go back and trim the handle a little more. How much needs to be trimmed depends on tire size so the best anyone can do is get you close and from there you'll have to do your own fitting.

              It's not so much length I can't find - yes, it can be cut down - its the right diameter I'm having a problem locating. What shovel are you using?

                Right diameter and/or right amount of handle bow so it "locks" in with some compression it seems.

                  Exactly.

                    I don't remember exactly where I got it; it may have been Lowes or Home Depot. The only markings on the shovel are "Carona" stamped into the metal where the handle slides into the metal, and it has a fiberglass handle. Here are a couple of pictures of how it fits and one of the shovel out where you can see it. (it actually fits tighter then the first pic shows, I had just installed the fuel caddy and needed to cut the shovel down an other inch or two when I took the pic)

                          yeah that sure looks like its the one. I just carefully removed the sponge rubber end; cut the handle to length and used a spray adhesive to re-attach the sponge rubber.
