Pit bottom jack
Contrary to the lifting crossbars and the pit edge jacks, the pit edge jack moves on the ground at the bottom of the truck or bus pit and is often very appreciated by workshops doing a lot of heavy maintenance with interventions on gearboxes and bridges. It allows nevertheless to lift an axle for braking or ground connection operations just like the pit edge jack. Several models of pit edge jacks exist from relatively basic versions to much more sophisticated versions.
Pit bottom jack with displacement on pit bottom slab
Pit bottom jack with rail travel
This model is the most advanced in the field of pit floor jacks today. Unlike the models previously mentioned and described, it slides into a 100x100x10mm pit bottom angle instead of resting on the pit bottom. This gives the jack an unequalled ease of movement.
Its ultra-flat chassis makes it much easier to move around the pit. When the jack is not used, it can also be stored behind a staircase by passing under the first step. This possibility to store the jack behind the stairs is really appreciated by the users. The useful working space at the bottom of the pit becomes free of any clutter.
