PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Hydraulic Jack is designed to lift, but not support, one end of a vehicle. Immediately after lifting, loads must be
supported by a pair of appropriately rated jack stands.
!
NEVER use hydraulic jack as stand-alone device. After lifting, immediately support the lifted vehicle with
a pair of appropriately rated jack stands.

PREPARATION
Assembly
Assemble the 2-pc. handle with bolt provided. Then insert the assembled handle into the handle sleeve. Tighten the
bolt on handle sleeve to prevent accidental removal of handle while in use.
Before Use
1. Verify that the product and application are compatible, if in doubt call Atd Tools Technical Service (636) 327-9050.
2. Before using this product, read the operator's manual completely and familiarize yourself thoroughly with the
product, its components and recognize the hazards associated with its use.
3. To familiarize yourself with basic operation of the jack, locate and turn release valve (jack handle):
a. Clockwise until firm resistance is felt to further turning. This is the ‘CLOSED’ release valve position used to
raise the saddle.
b. Counter-clockwise, but no more than 1/2 turn from the closed position. This is the ‘OPEN’ release valve
position used to lower the saddle.
4. With saddle fully lowered, remove the oil filler plug. Pump jack handle 6 to 8 full strokes. This will help release
any pressurized air which may be trapped within the reservoir. Check oil level. Proper oil level will vary from just
covering the ram cylinder to 3/16” above it as seen from the oil filler hole. Reinstall the oil filler plug.
5. Ensure that jack rolls freely. Raise and lower the unloaded saddle throughout the lifting range before putting into
service to ensure the pump operates smoothly. Replace worn or damaged parts and assemblies with Atd Tools
authorized replacement parts only.
Bleeding / Venting Trapped Air
With the release valve in the OPEN position (3b.) and with saddle fully lowered, locate and remove the oil filler
plug. Pump 6 to 8 full strokes. This will help release any pressurized air which may be trapped within the reservoir.
Reinstall the oil filler plug.

Lifting
Arm
1. Follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended
guidelines for lifting. Engage the emergency brake
and chock each unlifted wheel in both directions to
prevent inadvertent vehicle movement.
2. Close the release valve by turning the jack handle
clockwise until firm resistance is felt.
3. Refer to the vehicle manufacturer owner’s manual to
locate approved lifting points on the vehicle. Center
jack saddle under lift point.
4. Verify lift point, then pump the jack handle or speed
handle to contact lift point. To lift, pump the jack
handle until load reaches desired height.
Note: Do not use speed handle for load lifting.
5. Transfer the load immediately to appropriately rated
jack stands.

! WARNING
NEVER use hydraulic jack as a stand
alone device! ALWAYS transfer the lifted load
IMMEDIATELY to a pair of appropriately rated jack
stands. Use one pair of jack stands per vehicle.
Rated capacity is per pair only! Do not exceed rated
capacity.
!
• Study, understand, and follow all printed
materials provided with/on this product before use.
• Do not exceed rated capacity.
• Use only on hard, level surface.
• This is a lifting device only!
• Immediately after lifting, support the load with
a pair of appropriately rated jack stands.
• Lift only on areas of the vehicle as specified by
the vehicle manufacturer.
Lowering
Be sure all tools and personnel are clear before
lowering load. Slowly open the release valve!
The more you turn the handle counter-clockwise, the
faster the load will come down. Maintain control of the
rate of speed at which the load lowers at all times!
!
• Do not move or dolly the vehicle while on the jack.
• No alterations shall be made to this product.
• Failure to heed these markings may result in
personal injury and/or property damage.
1. Raise load high enough to clear the jack stands.
2. Remove jack stands carefully (always used in pairs).
3. Slowly turn the handle counter-clockwise, but no
more than 1/2 full turn. If the load fails to lower:
a. Use another jack to raise the vehicle high
enough to reinstall jack stands.
b. Remove the malfunctioning jack and then the
jack stands.
c. Use the functioning jack to lower the vehicle.
4. After removing jack from under the vehicle, fully
lower the saddle to reduce ram exposure to rust and
contamination.
! WARNING
X
To avoid crushing and related injuries:
• Never work on, under or around a load supported
only by hydraulic jack.
• Always use adequately rated jack stands.
• Chock each unlifted tire in both directions.
• Do not use this device to lift, level, lower, support nor
move a house, mobile home, travel trailer, camper or
any building structure.
• Be alert and sober when using this product. Do not
operate under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

MAINTENANCE
Important: Use only good grade hydraulic jack oil. Avoid mixing different types of fluid and NEVER use brake fluid,
turbine oil, transmission fluid, motor oil or glycerin. Improper fluid can cause premature failure of the jack and the
potential for sudden and immediate loss of load. We recommend Mobil DTE 13M or equivalent.
Adding oil
1. With saddle fully lowered set jack in its upright, level position. Remove oil filler plug.
2. Fill with oil until ~3/16" above the inner cylinder as seen from the oil filler hole. Reinstall the oil filler plug.
Changing oil
For best performance and longest life, replace the complete fluid supply at least once per year.
1. With saddle fully lowered, remove the oil filler plug.
2. Lay the jack on its side and drain the fluid into a suitable container.
Note. Dispose of hydraulic fluid in accordance with local regulations.
3. Fill with oil until ~3/16" above the inner cylinder as seen from the oil filler hole. Reinstall oil filler plug.
Lubrication
A periodic coating of light lubricating oil to pivot points, axles and hinges will help to prevent rust and assure that
wheels, casters and pump assemblies move freely.
Cleaning
Periodically check the pump piston and ram for signs of rust or corrosion. Clean as needed and wipe with an oily
cloth.
Note: Never use sandpaper or abrasive material on these surfaces!
Storage
When not in use, store the jack with saddle fully lowered.
