Have been thinking of 12V electric scissor jacks available on Ebay  About
the same size as a small scissor jack with a small electric motor.  Jack is
rated at 2 tons.  Certainly enough to lift a corner of the BN2.  Bending
over to "crank" a scissor jack is not as appealing as just standing there
with a control pendant in your hand.
