Bottle jacks are mechanical devices that use hydraulic pressure to lift heavy objects. They are named for their shape, resembling an upside-down bottle. Bottle jacks are typically made of cast iron or steel and have a lifting capacity of 2-50 tonnes. Bottle Jacks are used in various applications, including automotive repair, construction, and manufacturing.
Bottle jacks are generally easy to operate, but users must take care to avoid overloading the device. Nevertheless, bottle jacks can be an invaluable tool for lifting heavy objects when appropriately used.
Bottle Jacks are operated by pumping the jack handle to raise the main piston and lift vehicles or equipment off the ground. The vehicle can be lowered by turning the pump handle, which releases the pressure.
Bottle jacks can be handy for lifting heavy objects, but they should be used with caution. If not used properly, they can easily tip over, causing injury or damage to property.
First and foremost, always read the manufacturer's instructions before using the jack. Bottle Jacks have different weight limits, and it is crucial to know the limit of your particular jack. Never try to lift more than the jack is rated for, as this can cause the jack to fail and collapse.
Second, always ensure that the Bottle Jack is firmly positioned on a level surface before attempting to use it. A Bottle Jack that is not adequately placed can slip or tip over, causing severe injury.
Finally, always use caution when lifting a heavy load with a Bottle Jack. Ensure the load is balanced and secure before beginning the lift, and never attempt to move the loaded jack without ensuring the load is securely lowered onto axle stands or the floor.
Important: Always read the instruction manual before using a Bottle Jack, and contact us if you have any questions.
Bottle Jacks are ideal for safely and efficiently lifting heavy goods vehicles or heavy-duty machinery so that the underside can be accessed. Note: Never go underneath a vehicle until it is securely positioned on a suitable axel stand.
Some feature a carry handle so that they can be easily transported. In addition, their robust construction and overload safety valves ensure safe operation in the workplace. Some bottle jacks also feature a telescopic hydraulic ram which allows for a reduced closed height without compromising on the maximum lift height.
