BROOKSVILLE, Fla. — Equipment Supply Co. (ESCO), a manufacturer of tire-changing tools and accessories, has introduced its Pro Series Bottle Jack line specifically designed for rigorous heavy-duty commercial applications.
The jacks range in four sizes from 12-ton to 30-ton capacities and are equipped with a re-engineered super-thick base plate, offering a stronger foundation to support heavy loads, allowing for precision control of the jack while lifting, the company said.
The bottle jacks were designed with fully welded cylinders and frames for extending the service life and overall strength of the jack structure.
The jacks have a compact footprint and manufactured to weather the rugged elements found in the commercial truck, medium-duty, and agricultural service environments, ESCO said.
"We have listened and taken note to customer feedback for higher-quality professional jacks that can withstand rigorous daily use in the field. From the feedback we received, we revisited engineering in our manufacturing to develop a line of bottle jacks that exceeds expectations and delivers reliability, built for professional use," Christopher Manfre, ESCO sales and marketing director, said.
The double-spring design on the jacks allows for controlled and safe descent while releasing pressure from the cylinder, ESCO said.
All four bottle jacks are operable using air or can be manually adjusted with the two-piece lifting/lowering handle, included with purchase. Fitted with a safety-valve and heat-treated adjustable extension screw, ESCO Pro Series Bottle Jacks are all designed with these features to prevent overloading and overextension of the cylinder, the company said.
Each jack is offered with a 4-ft. swivel-end hose with a handheld push-bar air trigger, for consistent airflow while raising the jack to load.
