Which types of car jacks are available from ProLux?
We only supply professional and high-quality car jacks. They can be divided into three main types based on their design and features. Trolley jacks, hydraulic jacks, and pneumatic jacks. The lift is either generated hydraulically with oil or with normal compressed air. The following models are available to choose from:
- Trolley jacks: These work hydraulically with oil. They are the all-rounder amongst our car jacks because they are rollable and therefore suitable for universal use. This type of car jack has a lifting capacity of up to 3 tonnes.
- Hydraulic car jacks: This range includes an air-hydraulic jack with pneumatically driven hydraulics. These jacks are also rollable and are ideally suited to lifting heavy loads thanks to a lifting capacity of up to 30 tonnes. Another option in this range are our hydraulic bottle jacks – they work hydraulically with oil and have a mechanically adjustable lift height. They are robust, lightweight, very affordable and have a lifting capacity of up to 20 tonnes.
- Pneumatic car jacks: Pneumatic jacks are operated with normal compressed air (up to 8 bar). They are very easy to use and lightweight with a lifting capacity of up to 2.5 tonnes. Air bag jacks also work pneumatically. They can be filled quickly using compressed air or exhaust gas. They have a lift height of 750mm, are low weight, easy to operate and have a load capacity of up to 4 tonnes.
Possible applications for our car jacks
Below, you can find a selection of possible applications for our car jacks, as well as information on the particular advantages of individual models.
Hydraulic trolley jacks
Our hydraulic trolley jacks are rollable and fitted with four wheels. This makes them very agile, and they can be quickly positioned under a car or other vehicle. A minimum height clearance of only 80mm also makes them suitable for use with low-profile vehicles.
This car jack has a non-slip large rubber pad that holds the car or vehicle securely in place while it is lifted. Our hydraulic jacks have a high maximum lift height of between 375mm and 465mm, providing easy access under the vehicle. Trolley jacks with a lifting capacity of 2 tonnes or more can extend rapidly when not under load due to the double-stroke system. This allows vehicles to be raised safely and quickly. Lifting capacities range from 1350kg to 3000kg depending on the model. In addition to being simple, quick and reliable to operate, our trolley jacks are also incredibly stable. Whether in a workshop, a garage, or recovering a broken-down vehicle on the road. Thanks to a complete aluminium design, these car jacks are lightweight, yet extremely sturdy. The hand lever used to raise the jack is detachable. This means that the car jack can be easily stored in a vehicle.
Our air-operated hydraulic jack lifts up to 30,000kg. This makes it particularly suitable for lifting heavy loads, e.g. HGVs or heavy construction machinery. The maximum possible lift for this hydraulic jack is 139mm, which can be increased by a further 120mm using two screw-in extensions. The required ground clearance under the vehicle being lifted is only 150mm. Its compact dimensions and lightweight 25kg design make this an ideal hydraulic jack for servicing HGVs or for lifting specific points on heavy loads. It is easy to stow in any vehicle.
Hydraulic bottle jacks
Our bottle jacks work like trolley jacks with oil hydraulics. They lift loads of up to 20 tonnes. The weight and size of the bottle jacks is relatively low compared to their lifting capacity. These tools offer excellent value. You don't need to spend much for a sturdy bottle jack. Thanks to a removable pump lever, bottle jacks are easy to store and transport. The lift of the bottle jack cylinder can be increased using a built-in spindle. This gives the bottle jacks a lift height of up to 253mm. As with the air-hydraulic jack, the surface area of the lifting pad is relatively small. However, the risk of tipping remains small. Nevertheless, the load being lifted must have a suitably stable jack point.
Our pneumatic jacks are operated simply using compressed air. Most HGVs usually have a suitable connection point. But even a small air compressor with a capacity of 8 bar is enough to efficiently operate the pneumatic jack. A vehicle can be raised in a matter of seconds. These jacks can lift 2,500kg up to a maximum height of 480mm. Simply push the car jack under the load and start the air pressure. This is a quick and easy way to change tyres, for example. The jacks are not too heavy and are therefore easy to transport. Since these pneumatic car jacks can work on any surface, they are also suitable for off-road use.
Air bag jacks
Here, a lifting bag is inflated using either the vehicle exhaust gas or compressed air. These devices work very well on uneven ground, so they are ideal in off-road situations. The air bag is very flat before it is filled, making it particularly easy to slide under a vehicle. The exhaust hose is then attached to the vehicle's exhaust pipe. When the engine runs, the air bag inflates and raises the vehicle up. As soon as the desired height is reached, the engine simply needs to be switched off. A non-return valve ensures that the air bag remains inflated. Alternatively, you can also fill the air bag jack with compressed air. A small compressor is sufficient. This type of pneumatic jack has a maximum lifting capacity of 4,000kg and a lift height of up to 750mm. The large surface area of the lifting bag protects the underside of the vehicle.
