A hydraulic bottle jack is a type of lifting device commonly used to raise heavy objects such as vehicles or machinery. It utilizes hydraulic power to provide a high amount of lifting force with relatively small input effort.
Lifting Capacity: Hydraulic bottle jacks are available in different lifting capacities, typically ranging from a few tons to several tons. The lifting capacity determines the maximum weight the jack can safely lift.
Height Adjustment: Many hydraulic bottle jacks have a height adjustment mechanism that allows you to extend or retract the piston to achieve the desired lifting height. This feature enables precise positioning and support of the load at various heights.
Pumping Handle: A hydraulic bottle jack usually comes with a pumping handle or lever that you can manually operate to pump the hydraulic fluid into the cylinder. The handle may have a comfortable grip and ergonomic design for ease of use.
Hydraulic System: The hydraulic system of a bottle jack consists of a hydraulic cylinder, a piston, and hydraulic fluid. The cylinder is filled with hydraulic fluid, typically oil, which is pressurized to raise the piston and lift the load. The hydraulic system should be designed for efficient operation and durability.
