  • New to me,Telescopic Bottle Jack

    Maybe I’ve been living in a cave,I came across this telescopic bottle Jack that I’ve never seen before at Princess Auto for $35 cdn. Working heights are 6-11/16” to 16-9/16” and rated at 4 ton,didn’t buy it for lifting Grain Trucks just light duty jobs around the Shop.Had a cheap 2 ton for many years that was real handy with it’s small size.

    I have one that looks exactly like yours. Mine is rated for 6 ton metric. I use it all the time works great and the telescopic part is great because it is relatively short when fully retracted but lifts to a very useful height because of the telescoping feature.

      Looks handy!

      Astounding that gets built, transported, and marketed for 35 bucks…..

        Been around for a long time. I believe the actual tonnage lifted depends on the extension.

          We have some aircraft telescopic jacks at the museum, each section has a coarse thread nut on it so the height set can be locked even if the hydraulic oil leaks.

            I’m familiar with Telescopic Cylinders,had never stumbled across one in bottle Jack.My one Grain Truck has a 50 ton 5 stage that extends to around 20’ and the bottom Section must be at least 8” in dia.

              I thought most of them were, at least over here, I have a pile of 12 and 20 ton ones I used to use for underpinning houses, they’re cheap but never failed which. I’m glad of as the bloody wall would have ended up on my lap!

                  Very nice. I have never seen one around here in any stores. I like it. Sure, its de-rated at height but come on? The reach and flexibility is worth it IMO. JR

                    The bright red paint made me think of a Lincoln or some other quality company. Some times the big manufacturers sell off their over run to other markets. The best example I can think of (besides costco, I dont go there) is NAPA.

                    Napa has still held the ground here in the suburb waste lands. We have NAPA branded high quality items. Example.
                    Sorry, digress.

                    WIX oil filters. One of the best IMO. JR

                          No, just the opposite of your sage advice. Plan for the future and buy non-perishable necessities while the price is low. Stockpile stuff like the Amish, Mennonites and Mormons.

                            I've been noticing those lately. Seems like a good idea as it could save time jacking and blocking when you need that little bit of extra length. I can't think of how many times I ran out of reach with a bottle jack and had to add blocking and start over.
                            Funny thing is I've never seen any old US made ones. They all seem to be import stuff. Maybe it was considered a safety issue due to the extra extension. You know there are more seals involved.

                              You will see a fair amount of long term necessities with some in and around rural areas.Years ago I delivered some Seed to a older couple and they insisted I come in for Coffee,sitting at the kitchen table the lady opened the Pantry Door, it was massive stocked to the ceiling.I’m sure that they had nearly a year supply of
                              non-perishable items.
