BODY DESIGN: This “Made In the USA” jack is what you think of when you think of a “classic” floor jack. It is fully constructed out of steel which gives it plenty of strength to handle its rated 2 ton lifting capacity. The body side plates are flanged to reduce flexing and increase rigidity. The jack is not considered a low profile jack, but having a 3-3/4″ minimum lift height is nothing to be ashamed of. The saddle doesn’t have any padding and shaped like a square with rounded corners. It has notches on all four sides so that the lifting points of the vehicle don’t slip off. The rear casters swivel 360 degrees to allow for easy rolling and positioning. If you have to carry this jack around, the easiest way to do so is by removing the lifting pole and carrying it by the front axle.
LIFTING AND LOWERING SYSTEM DESIGN – The removable one-piece lifting pole is extremely rigid made out of steel. The single hydraulic piston is sealed so that dirt or other debris doesn’t damage the seals or contaminate the hydraulic fluid. This is not a quick lifting jack. The disadvantage is that it will take you many strokes of the lifting pole to reach maximum height. The advantage is that the effort require to operate the lifting pole is very small. Like the majority of floor jacks, the hydraulic valve is closed and opened by turning the the lifting pole clockwise and counter-clockwise respectively. The nice thing about this jack is that it uses a universal joint in between the lifting pole socket and the hydraulic valve making it very easy to operate the hydraulic valve in a precise manner. This jack has a safety overload valve that wont allow it to lift loads higher than its rated capacity.
