    No experience but looks like a low weight alternative to a substantial trolley jack, Not cheap though ? :)

    Don't buy a Draper one, the sight of it exploding when nearly at full height is a memory to treasure but not in a good way.

    never used one of those, but plenty of experience with air bag use in emergency service work... which I imagine were more robust and heavier duty than the bags you a are talking about...don't know what sort of pressure the exhaust could generate for such use...but 4t as mentioned above should get a side up no bother... you would need chocks if you intended been under the load ...
    they had a place for use on soft ground or restricted space where you could get them in... most probably need some protective mats to prevent damage to the bag as well.....
    cant think of much else to say other than they are specialist lifting devices that suit certain situations ..

    Make sure that it will fit your exhaust.
