Toe Jack’s are hydraulic low entry lifting jacks that are commonly used to lift and lower machinery and other large heavy objects onto machine moving skates. There are several different types of Toe Jack such as rotational, Nickel Plated, Forklift Type, Air Powered (Pneumatic), These can be selected dependant upon the application.
The standard Toe Jack is operated manually. The user places the jack toe underneath the edge of the object eg. machine, once everything is in place and one has checked it seems safe, begin to pump the detachable handle/lever that creates pressure and pushes a hydraulic ram up which lifts the lower toe. The Jack is supported by its wide base to prevent it tipping forward and dropping a load. (safety first!) It’s pretty simple really it works like a bottle jack underneath the toe, to release and lower the load on to machine moving skates or similar, simply remove the handle from the ‘Up socket’ and place in the ‘down socket’ and begin pumping, easy!
