Unpacking
When unpacking, check to make sure the parts listed on page 6 are included. If any parts
are missing or broken, please call Harbor Freight Tools at the number on the cover of this
manual as soon as possible.
Refer to the Assembly Drawing on page 7.
Assembly
1. Insert the Lower Handle (#11-7) into the Upper Handle (#11-6) and secure it with a
Screw (#11-9).
2. Insert the bottom of the Upper Handle (#11-6) into the Handle Socket (#10-3) and secure
it with the Screw (#11-1).
3. Set the Saddle Assy. (#2-1) into the hole on the Arm Assy. (#2-2).
Operation
Warning!! Only operate this Jack on a level, flat, hard surface capable of supporting the
weight of the Jack, the vehicle, and the tools. Use of an uneven or weak surface can cause
damage to the floor, or cause the vehicle to become unstable and potentially fall, causing
serious damage or injury.
Warning!! Consult the vehicle’s manual for the advised lift points. Only use the advised lift
points when using this Jack. Lifting in other areas can cause damage to the vehicle and cause
an unplanned, sudden lowering of the vehicle.
Warning!! Whenever the vehicle is to remain elevated more than momentarily, install
appropriate Jack Stands (not included) under the vehicle. Never work under the vehicle unless jack stands have been positioned.
Warning!! Before lifting or lowering a vehicle with the Jack, block each Jack wheel to stop it
from moving. Block the vehicle’s tires that remain on the ground.
Warning!! When raising or lowering the vehicle make sure no people are in the immediate
area.
Warning!! Never exceed the Jack’s maximum capacity of 4500 Lbs.
Warning!! Put the vehicle in gear or park and engage the emergency brake before jacking
the vehicle.
Raising the vehicle.
1. Position the Jack so that the Saddle (#2-1) is at one of the recommended lifting points.
Put shims under each wheel of the Jack. Turn the Lower Handle (#11-7) clockwise to lock
the release valve. Pump the Lower Handle (#11-7) until the Saddle (#2-1) fully engages the
lifting point, then continue to pump the Jack to the needed height.
2. Use jack stands (not included) to secure the vehicle. Use your vehicle’s owner’s manual
to determine the specified points to safely position jack stands.
3. Once the vehicle is safely positioned over the jack stands, slowly turn the Lower
Handle (#11-7) counterclockwise to open the release valve to lower the vehicle onto the jack
stands.
4. To determine if the vehicle is safely up on jack stands, stand away and attempt to gently
rock the vehicle. If it sways and seems unstable, repeat the procedure and re-position the jack
stands. Test again.
5. Completely lower the Jack and remove it from under the vehicle.

Operation (continued)
Lowering Vehicles.
1. First, clear any tools or equipment from under the vehicle. Make sure there are no
obstructions.
2. Position the Jack so that the Saddle (#2-1) is at one of the recommended lifting points.
Turn the Lower Handle (#11-7) clockwise to lock the release valve. Pump the Lower
Handle (#11-7) until the Saddle (#2-1) fully engages the lifting point, then continue to pump
the Jack above the jack stands.
3. Remove the jack stands.
4. Slowly turn the Lower Handle (#11-7) counterclockwise to open the release valve, and
gently to lower the vehicle.
5. Pull the Jack clear of the vehicle and store in a safe place.
If the Jack is not performing properly, it may have air in the hydraulic system and need
to be bled.
Bleeding and filling the Jack with hydraulic oil.
1. Place the Jack on a flat, level, solid surface.
2. If just filling the Jack, open the Oil Plug (#6-2) and check the oil. Fill to the top with a high
quality hydraulic oil if necessary.
3. If bleeding, with the Oil Plug (#6-2) removed, fully open the release valve by turning the
Lower Handle (#11-7) counter-clockwise.
4. Apply pressure on the Saddle (#2-1), holding it down. Quickly crank the Lower
Handle (#11-7) ten times. This will bring all the air out of the system. Continue cranking
until no more air bubbles appear. Fill to the top with a high quality hydraulic oil if necessary.
Repeat if necessary.
5. Replace the Oil Plug (#6-2).
6. Test the Floor Jack. Make sure it is functioning properly before attempting to lift another
vehicle. Crank the Saddle (#2-1) up and down several times to make sure it is working properly. If not, repeat the above process.
General Maintenance
1. Keep the Jack clean and dry.
2. Periodically lubricate the caster wheels with high quality grease.
3. Periodically dismantle and lubricate the handle assembly and all lift arm linkages.
4. Watch for hydraulic oil leaks. Fill oil if necessary. If leaks persist, contact an
authorized service technician.
5. If the Jack does not lift to satisfaction, take it to an authorized service technician.
