I think you'd run into a strength problem and then a liability problem, unless you are talking about the jack handle rather than the shaft with all the holes in it (tech speak <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> ).

How would that save weight, unless you're considering aluminum. If so, I don't think I'd be waiting in line. My 60" is pretty heavy but not as heavy as the tools and spare parts I lug around with it.
