The Delta bottle jack is typically used for lifting objects vertically such as lifting vehicles, from cars and SUV's to trucks and tractors; they can also be used for lifting up machinery and industrial equipment. In fact they can be used to lift many objects as long as there is enough space underneath to position the jack. Our smallest 2 tonne bottle jack measures just 158mm high when closed so can fit under quite low objects, it will be able to raise the load by a further 140mm. There is a choice of 5 models with differing capacities and liftable distances so be sure to check out the specifications.
These bottle jacks are quite easy to operate even for a novice. One of the most important things to remember is that it needs to be used on a solid surface, you do not want the jack tilting! Another important safety note is that you should NEVER go under a load held by a bottle jack of any kind unless additional support is in place.
The Delta jack must be positioned at the appropriate jacking points indicated on most vehicles for the best stability. If multiple bottle jacks are used they should be raised in tandem with each other to prevent stability issues.
When the jack is properly in position turn the saddle until contact is made with the load, the delivery valve should be closed at this point(clockwise). Insert the lever and pump to slowly raise the saddle, checking position and stability.
Once at the required height it reached is common place to position additional support stands especially for vehicles so that they can be worked on more safely. These will need to be removed before the bottle jack is lowered using the release valve.
It is re4commended that the hydraulic oil is replaced every 12 months to obtain the maximum working life of the jack. Follow the manufacturers instructions.
