Maintain labels and nameplates on
the Bottle Jack. These carry important
safety information. If unreadable or
missing, contact Harbor Freight Tools
for a replacement.
2.

4.
Bleed the hydraulic system of the
Bottle Jack before its initial use.
5.
Always place the Bottle Jack on a dry,
oil/grease free, solid, level floor surface
capable of supporting the weight of the
Jack and all other additional tools and
accessories.
6.
Apply the vehicle’s parking brake
and chock the tires before lifting the
vehicle.
7.
Lift the vehicle only by the
manufacturer-recommended lifting
points.
8.
Stay out from under the load while it is
being lifted or supported.
9.
Avoid rapid load descent. Turn the
Release Screw slowly.
10. Do not use for aircraft purposes.
11. Do not leave the tool unattended when
it is connected to a compressed air
supply. Release the tool’s load, and
disconnect it from its compressed air
supply before leaving.
12. This product is not a toy. Keep it out of
reach of children.
13. When lifting only one wheel, make
sure to support the load immediately
with one jack stand (not included)
placed under the side of the vehicle
being lifted. Align the saddle of the
jack stand directly under the vehicle’s
seam or recommended lifting point.
14. When lifting the entire front end or
rear end of a vehicle, make sure to
support the load immediately with two
jack stands. Align the saddles of the
jack stands directly under the vehicle’s
frame or recommended lifting points.

15. Use the Bottle Jack only on vehicles
whose frames have lifting points (on
its seam or frame) capable of aligning
with the Bottle Jack.

before performing any set up
and operating procedures.
WARNING
Tool Set Up
1.
IMPORTANT: Prior to use, make sure
to check for presence of air and proper
hydraulic oil level in the Bottle Jack.
Then thoroughly test the Jack for
proper operation prior to its actual use.
If the Jack appears not to be working
properly, it may be necessary to purge
its hydraulic system of excessive air.
To do so:
a.Insert the Lower Handle (41) onto the
Release Valve Screw (4); first turn
handle clockwise until snug. Then
turn the Release Valve Screw 1-1/2
turns counterclockwise.
(See Assy. Diagram.)
b.Wipe Filler Plug area with a clean and
lint free rag. Remove the Filler Plug
(15), and fill the Reservoir (14) with
hydraulic oil (not included).
(See Assy. Diagram.)
c. Insert the Handle (41, 41b) into the
Handle Bracket (38). Then rapidly
pump the Handle several times to
purge air from the system.
(See Assy. Diagram.)
d.Insert the Lower Handle (41) onto the
Release Valve Screw (4). Then turn
the Release Valve Screw clockwise
until snug.
(See Assy. Diagram.)
e.Top off the Reservoir (14) with

Plug (15); and wipe the jack’s exterior.
(See Assy. Diagram.)
f. IMPORTANT: After bleeding the
Bottle Jack, make sure to test the
unit to ensure it operates properly.
g.NOTE: To prevent damage to the
Bottle Jack, check for excessive air
and/or low hydraulic oil regularly.
Note: There are threaded holes on
sides of Jack base, which are predrilled for the mounting of an optional
wheel and handle kit (not included).
Contact Harbor Freight Tools for
details on this optional kit. (See below
photo).
4.
Carefully position the ram (9) of
the Bottle Jack under the vehicle
manufacturer’s recommended lifting
point. (See vehicle manufacturer’s
manual for location of seam lifting point
when lifting only one wheel and frame
lifting points when lifting the entire front
or rear end of the vehicle.) (See Assy.
Diagram.)
To raise the vehicle manually:
a.Pump the Handle (41) assembly until
the top of the Bottle Jack’s ram (9)
has nearly reached the vehicle lifting
point. The Jack should be positioned
at 90° to the vehicle’s lifting point to
ensure the Bottle Jack’s Ram and
vehicle lifting point are in alignment.
If not, remove and reposition the Jack
before lifting.
b.To lift the vehicle, pump the Handle
assembly using smooth, full strokes.
(See Assy. Diagram.)
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1.
Make sure the vehicle is parked on a
flat, level, solid, ground surface.
2.
Turn off the vehicle’s engine. Place
the vehicle’s transmission in “PARK”
(if automatic) or in it lowest gear (if
manual). Set the emergency brake.
Then chock the wheels that are not
being lifted.

Check to make sure the Bottle Jack
is fully lowered. If not, assemble the
Handle (41) assembly. Insert the lower
portion of the Handle assembly onto
the Release Valve Screw (4), and turn
the Screw counterclockwise to lower
the Jack. Once the Jack’s ram is fully
lowered, turn the Screw clockwise to

its regulator to 110-120 PSI. Do not
exceed 120 PSI.
c. Depress the Lever of the Air Valve
assembly until the top of the Bottle
Jack has nearly reached the vehicle
lifting point. The Jack should be
positioned at 90° to the vehicle’s
lifting point to ensure the Bottle
Jack’s Ram and vehicle lifting point
are in alignment. If not, remove and

assembly is turned completely
clockwise closing the Release Valve
Screw (4). Release the Lock Lever
on the Air Valve (32) assembly.
Depress the Lever on the Air Valve
assembly (32) to raise the vehicle
slightly above the saddle(s) of the
jack stand(s). Place the Lock Lever in
