Hydraulic jack buying guide

A hydraulic jack operates by applying a small force to a cylinder filled with hydraulic fluid. This fluid is then distributed evenly throughout the cylinder to lift objects. The change in pressure in the cylinder is proportional to the area of the object being lifted, so the larger the surface area at C, the more force it can distribute to the object.

There are different types of hydraulic jacks on the market and choosing the right one for your needs can be an easy task. Of course, you will want to find one with a higher lifting capacity and one that is lightweight and compact. If you own a small business and are looking for an affordable auxiliary tool for your garage, a bottle jack is a perfect choice.

When choosing a hydraulic jack, make sure you consider the weight you plan to lift. Some models, like the scissor jack, can lift over 1.5 tons, while others can reach up to 5 tons. You also need to consider the weight of the load you'll be lifting. 

  • Typically, a 2-ton jack is sufficient for smaller cars, but larger trucks and SUVs need a three-ton jumbo jack. You should also look at the material used in the cylinder to determine the strength and durability of the tool. Aluminium and steel are lightweight, while steel is more durable and robust.
  • A 7.5-ton hydraulic jack is ideal for home use or auto/truck service. It's heat-treated for long-term performance and comes with a carry handle for easy transportation. In addition, it has a steel lifting saddle, and it has a built-in bypass system.
