MAJOR INTERNATIONAL AWARD
Australian off road accessory company Bushranger has won a major accolade
at the world's largest aftermarket product show, during the recent SEMA
Show in Las Vegas.
Bushranger won the Best New Exterior Accessory Product for the Xjack at
the world renowned show, beating automotive products and accessories from
around the globe.
This year's SEMA show was the largest on record attracting more than
2000 exhibitors and 100,000 trade professionals from around the world,
showcasing the latest technology, trends and products in the $41 billion
global automotive accessories industry.
According to Bushranger national sales manager Evan Black winning
SEMA's Best New Exterior Accessory Product has put the Xjack on the world
"This is a tremendous accolade for an Australian idea and will help
take Xjack to the world", said Mr Black.
The award recognizes the work Bushranger has done to design and develop
a safer, durable and easier to use exhaust jack.
Bushranger applied logic and lateral thinking to a great idea and came
up with an even better one that makes it easier for people to lift
vehicles in recovery situations said Mr Black.
"This award shows that Australians can hold their own when it comes to
designing and developing high quality, practical automotive accessories
"Our engineers incorporated design features such as additional side
curtains to assist in puncture prevention, a triple layer reinforced top
for more stable lifting and unique triangular feet on the base for better
"We also realised that sometimes it is not possible to inflate
the jack using the vehicle exhaust, so the X-Jack is fitted with a
tyre valve to allow it to be inflated with a 12 volt compressor."
“This innovation has taken the evolution of air jacks to a new level
and it is an example of why Bushranger has been rewarded with this major
award at SEMA and why it has maintained its status as an industry leader
for so long,” he said.
Bushranger’s Xjack features a hard core insert to ensure better
durability and greater stability for raising vehicles on unstable surfaces
such as sand, mud and loose gravel.
The Xjack is a 21st century take on a concept pioneered in Australia in
the 1970s but using the latest materials and technology.
Additional safety features include an easy to use inflation and
deflation system that allows the user to remain at a safe distance while
the vehicle is being raised or lowered.
Xjack is the first air jack to feature two way inflation utilizing
either the vehicle's exhaust or a portable 12 Volt compressor such as
Bushranger's Max Air or ProAir.
Available through all leading automotive accessory and four wheel drive
equipment retail outlets the Bushranger X-Jack is covered by a full one
year no fuss warranty.
Bushranger is a division of Kingsley Enterprises a leading Australian
manufacturer of automotive and four wheel drive accessories for more than
a quarter century.
