Dick Spurlin, president of Centaur International, Edmond, Okla., explains that the jack uses tractor, truck or remote unit hydraulic power to raise and lower a load. A hydraulic hose, connected to the base of the jack, couples to the tractor or truck's hydraulic port.
Spurlin says that lifting a tractor with its own power involves placing the jack in the desired spot, hooking up the hydraulic hose and operating the hydraulic lever to raise or lower the jack. Other uses for the jack include lifting heavy equipment tongues for hitching to the tractor, lining up points for welding, forcing bends and more. You can even use the jack upside down, or as a press.
A safety advantage to the jack, Spurlin points out, is that you're safely out of the way and not under heavy equipment when it's being lifted.
Jacks are available in three sizes, with a 6-in. base and a 21-in. jack height when fully extended. Model 40 lifts 4-tons, model 90 9-tons, and model 150 lifts 14¢ tons. The models sell for $69, $89 and $99, respectively.
