THIS OPERATING MANUAL CONTAINS
IMPORTANT DETAILS CONCERNING THE SAFE
OPERATION OF THIS EQUIPMENT. THE USER MUST
READ AND UNDERSTAND THESE DETAILS BEFORE
ANY USE OF THE EQUIPMENT. THIS MANUAL MUST

OWNER/OPERATOR
RESPONSIBILITY:
•
Slowly and carefully move the jack around corners
because the load could tip. Stay clear of a lifted load.
•
Lower the jack slowly and carefully while watching
the position of the load.
•
Do not modify the jack or use adapters unless
approved or supplied by Ranger.
•
Use only anti-wear hydraulic jack oil with a 215 sus
viscosity rating at 100° f. The use of alcohol,
hydraulic brake fluid, or transmission oil could
damage seals and result in jack failure.
This guide cannot cover every situation, so always do
the job with safety first. Always maintain a clean work
area. Keep visitors and especially children away from the
work area.
The owner and/or operator shall study the product
instructions and retain them for future reference.
The owner and/or operator shall have an understanding
of the product operating instructions and warnings before
operating the transmission jack.
Warning information shall be emphasized and
understood. If the operator is not fluent in English, the
product instructions and warnings shall be read to and
discussed with the operator in the operator’s native
language by the purchaser/ owner or his designee
making sure that the operator comprehends its contents.
INSPECTION
Visual inspection should be made before each use of
the transmission jack. This inspection should check for
abnormal conditions such as cracked welds, leaks, and
damaged, loose or missing parts.
IMPORTANT SAFETY TIPS
Any product that appears to be damaged in any way,
is found to be worn or operated abnormally, must be
removed from service immediately.
Any product that operates abnormally shall be removed
from service until repaired by a qualified repair service
center.
To help prevent personal injury and damage to
equipment,
•
If the product is accidentally subjected to an abnormal
load or shock, it must be taken out of service immediately
and be inspected by a qualified repair or service center.
Study, understand, and follow all safety
precautions and operating instructions before
operating this device.
•
Wear eye protection that meets ANSI z87.1 and
OSHA standards.
•
A load must never exceed rated jack capacity.
•
Do not lift or support the vehicle with this jack
adequately support the vehicle before starting
repairs.
•

FOR YOUR SAFETY AND TO PREVENT INJURY:
5. Attach the Tow Handle and the Steering Handle.
6. Attach the angle plate brackets onto the saddle, and
fasten with the hex bolts and nuts.
DO NOT EXCEED RATED CAPACITY.
7. Assemble the stationary plate bracket on the angle
plate bracket and secure with the hook and screw
caps. Assemble chains and chain hardware to the
corner of the stationary plate bracket.

1. To prevent oil leak during shipment, the oil seal screw
is tightened down to ensure the best sealing function.
Before the first use, loosen the oil seal screw 1 full
turn.
2. The reservoir tube is shipped filled with hydraulic
oil. Before using the jack for the first time, press the
release pedal to open the release valve, and operate
the foot pump eight full strokes to distribute the oil.
BLEEDING AIR FROM THE
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
Air can accumulate within a hydraulic system during
shipment or after prolonged use. This entrapped air
causes the jack to respond slowly or feel “spongy.” Use
the steps below to bleed the system.
1. Locate the two “leg assemblies” and attach them
together using the three bolts, washers, and nuts
provided. Leave finger tight for now.
2. Attach the casters to the ends of each leg, one at a
time, making sure to snugly tighten them using a
17 mm open end wrench.
1. Pump the jack to the highest point where the first and
the second piston rams are both at maximum height.
2. Get the help of another person to keep the release
pedal depressed, and activate the foot pedal about 20
times.
3. Place the cylinder assembly onto the leg assembly
and bolt in place using the three bolts and washers
provided. Make sure to snugly tighten these bolts.
3
MAINTENANCE
3. Let go of the release pedal; the air in the oil system
should be bled successfully. If not successful, repeat
procedure but first check oil level, or see procedures
under maintenance section, steps 2 through 5.
1. Regularly lubricate all moving parts of the jack. Pay
special attention to the lift screw and related linkages.
A medium weight lubricating grease should be used
on all external moving parts, such as the bearing
surface, pivot points, tilt screws, etc.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
2. Position the jack under the vehicle.
2. Regularly check the oil level. With the saddle fully
lowered, remove the oil seal screw, and check the
oil level. The oil level should be at the bottom of the
screw hole. Add oil if necessary.
3. Raise the jack by operating the foot pump until the
saddle touches the component.
3. Use only hydraulic jack oil. Do not use hydraulic
brake fluid.
4. Adjust the support brackets to fit the component.
4. If the jack fails to operate, check the oil level and/or
bleed unit before seeking service.
1. Follow the vehicle’s recommended service procedure
for removal of the component.
5. Use the tilt crank to align the saddle with the
component.
5. Do not use this jack as a wash rack when washing or
steam cleaning transmissions.
6. Finish raising the jack to the component. Secure the
chain assembly around the component.
