Learn: Confined Space Toe Jacks
The Confined-Space toe jacks are made for special applications only. Please pay attention to any technical considerations to determine if these jacks are right for you. Our low-profile Confined-Space toe jacks are made for lifting heavy loads and equipment in confined spaces.
The jack has a very small footprint, and the toe has an extra low profile. If you do not have enough clearance underneath the load for the support feet, you can swivel the toe 180 degrees and use it with feet in rear. The use of an external pump allows you to step away from the load and control the lifting remotely. Because of the modular design, the entire system is lightweight and compact. The jack does not have a pumping handle so it must be operated with either a manual or electric pump. If you are using your own pump, please make sure it operates on the matching pressure.
The low-profile jacks and pumps are outfitted with drip-free quick connectors. The connecting hydraulic hoses are available in various lengths to match your needs. Each pump has two nozzles and can operate 2 jacks simultaneously. However: The pump supplies the same pressure to each jack via one oil supply. This means that both jacks will lift at the same rate when each jack carries the same weight.
The heavy load jacks and pumps are outfitted with drip free quick connectors. The connecting hydraulic hoses are available in various lengths to match your needs. Each pump has two nozzles and can operate 2 jacks simultaneously. However: The pump supplies the same pressure to each jack via one oil supply. This means that both jacks will lift at the same rate when each jack carries the same weight.
BUT... if your weight is unevenly distributed across your load, each jack will be loaded with a different amount of weight. As a result, the jack with less weight will lift faster, causing the load to tilt. If you have uneven weight distribution, please operate each jack independently with separate pumps. This lets you manually synchronize the lifting process.
Alternatively, please compare the Confined-Space toe jacks to our compact toe jacks which can be operated without the external pump for independent control.
- Each manual pump comes with a foot plate, which allows you to hold the pump down as you operate its handle.
- The lowering knob gives you precise control in order to gently lowering the load to the ground.
- The system is also outfitted with an overload protection mechanism which safeguards the internal mechanical components from breaking when the jack is overloaded.
- You can use the toe or the top loading plate to lift.
- The jack can be used to lift heavy loads or to horizontally push and separate loads.
