We officially provide the largest hire fleet and stock of hydraulic jacks in UK with over 1,500 cylinders which can be incorporated into any of our hydraulic jacking systems, from hand-operated, electric pumps or synchronised lifting with control manifolds and pressure gauges, as illustrated below, to state of the art computerised control and monitoring equipment used for precise controlled hydraulic movement when carrying out major lifting projects, such as, bridge jacking decks, bridge bearings or house lifting operations or other large heavy superstructures.

Our range of low height hydraulic jacks vary from 5 to 1,200 tonnes capacity with stroke from 5mm to 500mm and are designed to work in the toughest environments to which this type of equipment is normally associated. Our hydraulic jacks are also equipped with locking collars to mechanically lock-off the ram after lifting and swivel heads to ensure that the load is transferred centrally through the jack.

Our bespoke hydraulic jacking and monitoring equipment is specially designed and manufactured to suit many applications from preloading steelworks to temporary propping systems used for bridge jacking and bridge bearing replacement operations.
