OPERATION
KNOW YOUR JACK
BEFORE USE
Compare Fig. 3 illustration with your jack
BEFORE operation to become familiar with
the location of various jack components.
• Read the operator's manual completely
and familiarize yourself thoroughly with the
product, its components and recognize the
hazards associated with its use.
• Occasionally during shipment and/or
handling air can get trapped in the system,
which can interfere with the jacks lifting
performance.
• It is recommended to cycle the jack a few
times without applying load:
• Close release valve by turning the jack
handle clockwise until tight.
• Pump the handle until the jack saddle
reaches its maximum height.
• Open release valve by turning jack handle
counterclockwise, but no more than 1/2
full turn. Allow the saddle to reach its
lowest position.
• Repeat the above procedure a few times.
• To release air from the hydraulic system:
• Open the release valve by turning the jack
handle counterclockwise, but never by
more than 1/2 full turn.
• Remove the oil filler screw from the
cylinder. (see Fig. 4)
• Rapidly pump jack handle through several
full strokes.
• Reinstall the oil filler screw into the
cylinder again and jack is now ready to
use.

OPERATION
OPERATING PRINCIPLES
• Continue to pump the jack handle to lift the
vehicle to the desired height. After lifting,
immediately support the load with
appropriately rated jack stands BEFORE
working on the vehicle.
! Rated capacity of jack stands is per
pair, it is NOT the sum of individual
capacities unless specifically noted to the
contrary by the jack stand manufacturer.
Do Not exceed rated capacity. Ensure that
the vehicle support points are fully captured
between the outer lugs of both jack stands.
Use a matched pair of jack stands per
vehicle to support 1 end only. Use 1 pair
per vehicle only. Failure to do so may result
in sudden loss of load, which may cause
personal injury and/or property damage.
• With release valve closed, an upward
stroke of the jack handle draws oil from the
reservoir tank into the plunger cavity.
Hydraulic pressure holds the valve closed,
which keeps the oil in the plunger cavity.
• A downward stroke of the jack handle
releases oil into the cylinder, which forces
the ram out. This raises the saddle. (NOTE:
To avoid damage to the cylinder if the load
exceeds the rated capacity of the jack, oil
is automatically released back into the
reservoir through the safety overload
valve.)
• When the ram reaches maximum
extension, oil is bypassed back into the
reservoir to prevent an over-extended ram
stroke and possible damage to the jack.
• Opening the release valve allows oil to flow
back into the reservoir. This releases
hydraulic pressure on the ram, which
results in lowering the saddle.
LOWERING THE JACK
! To avoid crushing injuries and property
damage: Keep hands and feet clear of work
area when lowering load.
• Raise load high enough to clear the jack
stands, then carefully remove jack stands
(always used in pairs).
• SLOWLY open the release valve by turning
the handle counterclockwise, but never
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 affected jack and then the
stands.
c. Using the other jack, lower the load by
turning the operating handle counterclockwise, but no more than 1/2 full turn.
• After removing jack from under the load,
push saddle down to reduce ram exposure
to rust and contamination.
HOW TO USE YOUR JACK
RAISING THE JACK
• Chock the vehicle wheels with appropriate
devices to prevent vehicle from moving and
to ensure lifting stability.
• Close the release valve by turning the jack
handle clockwise until tight. (see Fig. 3)
• Refer to the vehicle manufacturer’s owner’s
manual to locate approved lifting points on
the vehicle. Position jack so that the saddle
(see Fig. 3) is centered under the load at
an appropriate lift point.
• Pump jack handle until saddle ALMOST
contacts the vehicle. Check to see that the
saddle is centered and will contact the load
lifting point firmly.

MAINTENANCE
MAINTAINING OIL LEVEL
• When not in use, ALWAYS store jack with
saddle lowered all the way down.
Important: When adding or replacing oil,
ALWAYS use a good grade Hydraulic Jack
oil. DO NOT use Hydraulic Brake Fluid,
Alcohol, Glycerine, Detergent, Motor Oil or
dirty oil. Use of an improper fluid can cause
serious internal damage to your jack. We
recommend Mobil DTE13M or equivalent.
ANNUAL INSPECTION
To ensure that it is in optimum condition,
annual inspection of the jack at a Sears
Service Center is recommended.
REPLACING OIL
ADDING OIL
• To drain oil, remove tool tray and oil filler
screw and open release valve. Turn jack
over and drain old oil out through the oil
filler hole and into a suitable container.
• Refill with new oil through the oil filler hole.
DO NOT allow dirt or other foreign material
to enter the hydraulic system when filling.
• After refilling, remove any air from the
hydraulic system by opening the release
valve and rapidly pumping the jack handle
several times.
• Re-install oil filler screw and tool tray and
the jack is ready to use.
• Position the jack on level ground and fully
lower the saddle. (Ram will be all the way
in). Remove oil filler screw located under
tool tray (see Fig. 3 & 4).
• Oil should be filled to the level of about
3/16” above the inner cylinder as seen from
the oil filler hole. If low, add oil as needed.
• Re-install oil filler screw and tool tray. The
jack is now ready to use.
LUBRICATION
• Add lubricating oil to all moving parts as
needed.
PREVENTING RUST
• Check ram and pump plunger (see Fig. 4)
every few months for any signs of rust or
corrosion. Clean as needed by wiping with
an oily cloth.
