This 2 Stage hydraulic transmission jack from JK is one of the best rated models on the market.
If you’re looking for an adjustable jack that can carry a load up to 1500 lbs, this is definitely a model to consider.
Here are some of the specs:
- 1500 lbs (1.5 tons) capacity
- 34 inches to 70 inches
- Strong and stable base
- Fully adjustable features
- Long safety chains
You’re going to need a few tools to assemble the jack before using it. You’ll probably need a 12 mm allen wrench to complete the assembly.
Unfortunately a lot of these products don’t always come with a good set of instructions, however the assembly isn’t very complicated.
That being said, I would recommend you purge the unit as air might have entered during shipment.
As with any type of equipment where you will be working with heavy equipment, always test the jack before using it.
Consumer Feedback and Personal Experience
Most of my experience comes from working with hydraulic jacks and cranes on large cargo vessels. Some of these jacks required us to lift extremely heavy diesel engines and various parts.
This particular jack is designed primarily for those who are working on vehicles, and particularly changing out transmissions. That being said, you can still use this tool for various jobs which may require you to transfer heavy materials and equipment.
Most of the feedback from this particular model is very positive. Although I don’t like to recommend cheap products, particular jack is definitely on the affordable side, however the quality behind the build is still there.
There are definitely a lot of different options out there for buying these jacks, however if you’re looking for a 2 stage option with a large capacity, then I would recommend this particular unit.
