Homemade Stabilizer Blocks

The pictures below show how I made blocks for my stabilizer jacks. I used a 2" x 10" x 10 feet long board which was enough for all four jacks. I no longer carry cinder blocks. I'm to cheap to buy the orange commercial stuff. Its light and takes up very little room.

These blocks are designed to be used in the vertical position and not layed flat.
If used in soft soil, I do recommend putting a flat board under them.

I primarly use them for unlevel sites when the stabilizer's won't reach or barely reach the ground.

I've got mine made similar, I use 1/2" plywood crosses and a piece of 1/2' plywood across the top of the cross. Lower jacks down onto them.

good idea but I would put a sq of plywood under it to keep it from sinking and on top so the stabilizer has a better footprint.

This is a great idea. I have been using 4x6's that were cut offs from a pole barn that i helped my father inlaw build. They have worked good and you have options on how mucl lift you need.
