Hand Carry or Fly Away
Our Hand Carry jacks raise loads from 5 to 30 tons and are equipped with a retractable handle. They weigh 50 to 80 lbs. Next we have our Fly Away jacks. They are the subcompact version of our alligator jacks, having the ability to support similar loads, but are lighter in weight for easy portability. Fly away jacks can easily fit into tight spaces, as their base is 9 inches wide or less. Manual pump is standard with an option for air assist.
T-shaped axle jacks, known as alligator jacks, are made to lift commercial aircraft, with load ratings of 30 to 95 tons, to access and maintain the landing gear. Alligator jacks weigh approximately 350 lbs and our standard products are 36 inches in width and 60 inches in length. A manual pump is standard with an option for air assist.
Our jacks come with optional features that include load gauges, air operated hydraulic pumps, rain hats, and we can custom paint your jack.

Jacks really take a beating. Crews demand a lot from their jacks, and may leave them outside or ignore hydraulic leaks until the jack just doesn’t work any longer.
Send us your jacks for repair. Our technicians work with all major brands. We’ll replace seals, broken parts, and any other worn components.
We’ll load test the jack and label it, so it will go back into rotation quickly.
