BASIC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS:











Equipment operation must always be conducted by trained personnel.
To avoid the possibility of serious injury or death, stay clear of the loads and keep others away.
Do not exceed the rated capabilities of the HFS, pump, or hose. Excess pressure may result in
personal injury.
Control the load at all times with Stabilization Struts. *Always install Stabilization Struts first at a
lower angle with respect to the ground and object being lifted; 45°- 55° is optimal.
Always perform a lift using the HFS at a 60°- 80° angle or greater with respect to the ground and
object being lifted. *Always install Stabilization Struts first at a lower angle with respect to the
ground and object being lifted; 45°- 55° is optimal.
A vertical lift using the HFS directly under a load is acceptable at 90°. *Always install Stabilization
Struts first at a lower angle with respect to the ground and object being lifted; 45°- 55° is optimal.
Make sure the HFS LockCollar follows the load at all times by adjusting the LockCollar down as
the HFS is extended. The LockCollar should never get more than 1” away from the tube body.
DO NOT rapidly drop a load supported by the HFS. Lower the load carefully by SLOWLY opening up the pump control lever.
Before adding hydraulic fluid, fully retract the HFS to prevent overfilling of the pump reservoir.
Overfilling may cause personal injury due to excess reservoir pressure created when an HFS is
retracted.
To maintain optimal oil level in the pump, extend and retracted HFS’s using the same pump assembly. Each pump assembly has the oil capacity to extend up to 26” of HFS travel.
Do not use the pump hose to move attached equipment. Stress may damage the hose and fittings which could cause personal injury and equipment failure.
HFS AND PUMP OPERATION:
1. Couple the HFS tube end down onto any compatible Paratech base plate and make sure the
LockPin is secure. Note: The HFS can be used in any orientation; however, tube end down is
preferred to facilitate LockCollar adjustment and eliminate trip hazards by keeping the hydraulic
hose at ground level. See FIGURE-4.
FIGURE-4

2. To prevent movement and/or sliding, connect a ratchet belt or chain to an opposing base plate.
An optional stake or picket to secure the base plate to the ground can be used where applicable
otherwise refer to the officer in charge for alternate methods. See FIGURE-4.
3. Select the appropriate Paratech strut, extension, or extension converter with base for the application and insert it tube end down into the Dual Shaft End Adapter. Make sure the LockPin is
properly engaged. The Dual End Shaft Adapter was engineered to accept Paratech LongShore,
AcmeThread, or LockStroke products.** Do not insert strut screw ends into the Dual Shaft End
Adapter. Bases can be used on the Dual End Shaft Adapter with a Paratech Extension Converter, PN 22-796035. See FIGURE-5.
FIGURE-5
* One HFS can be used in combination with the following:
1 Strut, 1 Extension maximum combined length 16 feet (4.9m).
OR
2 Extensions having maximum combined length of 3 feet (.9 m).
** USING THE SCREW SIDE IN
THE HFS DUAL SHAFT END
ADAPTER WILL RESULT IN 10%
LOWER CAPABILITY. See FIGURE12 & 13
4. To maximize the hydraulic lift efficiency and safety, always position the HFS at a 60°- 80° angle
or greater with respect to the ground and object being lifted. Stabilization Struts should always be
installed first and used for backup at 45°- 55° with respect to the ground and object being lifted.
See FIGURE-11
5. Connect the pump to the HFS by first wiping clean the no-spill coupler ends. Relieve pressure on
the hose before connecting by turning the pump control lever counter clockwise (CCW). See
FIGURE-6

PUMP OR STRUT UNDER

Push the no-spill couplers together until they lock and then turn the locking collar to prevent accidental
disconnection. See FIGURE-7
FIGURE-7
6. To unlock the pump handle, push handle down then slide yoke off handle grip. This places the
handle in an open or working position. To lock the handle, push the handle down and push yoke
onto the handle grip. See FIGURE-8
FIGURE-8
7. To extend the HFS, turn the pump control lever clockwise (CW) hand tight to the closed position
and work the handle up and down to build pressure. See FIGURE-9. Note: the pump can be operated in a horizontal position or in a vertical position with head pointing downward.
FIGURE-9
5
8. To release pressure, open the pump control lever by SLOWLY turning CCW to control the load
descent.
9. As the load is lifted, the LockCollar should be turned down to make contact with the HFS tube
body, shoring the load. See FIGURE 10. Note: maximum lift height is slightly more than maximum stabilizing height to prevent system lockout in application. Once the maximum lift is hieved,
open the pump control lever SLOWLY until the LockCollar is seated onto the HFS tube body.
FIGURE-10
10. To retract the HFS, ensure the pump control lever is completely closed and use the pump to extend the HFS enough to take the load off the LockCollar.
11. SLOWLY open the pump control lever while rotating the LockCollar away from the HFS tube
body. The LockCollar should never get more than 1” away from the tube body as the load is lowered for safety reasons.
12. After use or before disconnecting the hose from the pump or strut make sure to relief pressure
from the system by turning the pump control lever CCW and allowing the strut to fully retract.
CONNECTING THE HOSE TO THE PUMP OR STRUT UNDER PRESSURE WILL CAUSE
COUPLING SEAL FAILURE
FIGURE-11: This is an illustration of an ideal vehicle lift and stabilization using the HFS. Note the optimal 60°-80° angle between the HFS, ground, and vehicle. Always use Stabilization Support Struts first,
positioned at 45°- 55° with respect to the ground and vehicle during a lift.

NOTE: USING THE SCREW SIDE IN THE HFS DUAL SHAFT END ADAPTER
WITHOUT LONGSHORE SCREW APDAPTER PN 790019 OR ACMETHREAD SCREW
ADAPTER PN 790067 WILL RESULT IN 10% LOWER CAPABILITY.

TOOL MAINTENANCE:
 Bleeding air from the hydraulic system is recommended at initial set-up and after prolonged use.
To remove the air, position the HFS at a lower level that the pump and with the Dual Shaft End
Adapter down. Extend and retract the HFS several times without putting a load on the system.
Air will be released into the pump reservoir and can be removed by loosening the pump filler cap.
 Check hydraulic fluid level in the pump reservoir periodically. The filler hole on the hydraulic oil
reservoir is also used to check the level. Position the pump with the pump head facing downwards, and remove the filler plug. The level is correct when the oil reaches the bottom edge of the
filler hole. The HFS should be fully retracted before checking the fluid level in the pump. Replenish fluid levels with Paratech hydraulic fluid PN 22-790051.
 Apply grade 10 motor oil or grease to all pivot and rubbing points on the pump regularly.
 Periodically lubricate the AcmeThread shaft, LockCollar, and Dual Shaft End Adapter with a high
quality dry spray lubricant, such as DuPont Teflon Dry Lubricant, and keep free of dirt and debris.
 Replace worn, kinked, leaking, or cut hose as required.
 To clean, wipe all exposed surfaces with clean warm water and soft cloth.
