answer 2
it will move with a load on it. however is not really intended to roll any distance as balance is the issue. Jack seems very stable. Like the fast jack option as it gives good control of the lift.

answer 5
Not really and if so then not very easily and I wouldn't recommend it. The jack probably would tip and the torque applied to it could bend or damage the mechanism. The wheels on the jack are there to allow the jack to move under the lift point as the angle changes under the lift arm. They make roller plates that you place under each tire that will allow you to move a car around in a garage or on any smooth flat surface. With the tire plates you could spin it in circles if you wanted.

Should be capable as it is very heavy construction - PS you should not jack a veichle up by the center of the differential as the design of the differential is for the weight to be supported in the spring area. Some differentials are made of aluminum and bend easily.

Staff Answer
The two screws are set screws and should not be touched. Any kind of tampering with them would affect the performance of the jack. The rubber stopper is where you fill the oil. The jack comes with the oil already in it. You will only need to add when it gets low. You just need to add enough oil to cover the cylinder from the inside of the pump.

answer 2
The rubber plug is the "ONLY" one you mess with. EVER!!
1} Picture the hydraulic unit as a bottle jack. Thats what it is.
2} Stand the jack upright with the handle end down.
3} Pull the rubber plug out. Fill it until oil begins to run out the hole.
4}Replace plug.
5} Bleed air using the jacks directions.
{Usually by opening the release/lowering valve enough for jacks lift arm to lower and pumping the handle a few times then closing it then trying its operation. This may need repeated several times until it operates 100%}
Read directions for bleeding it may be different on your jack.

Staff Answer
If you are referring to putting oil in this unit there is a little button screw, or a rubber button, on the middle of the pump normally by itself. These units come pre-oiled and you shouldn’t have to add oil to the unit. As for the saddle being tightened on, it’s up to you, it’s a personal preference.

Question

Is it safe to remove the two wire / coil retainers at the bottom?

I was wondering if it is safe to remove the the wire/spring retainers at the bottom of the floor jack since I will be leaving the jack in my garage and won't be transporting it anywhere. I ask because the two points are scratching my driveway flooring. I understand that this was a safety mechanism during shipment and as per the owner's manual, these wire retainers had to be removed before the jack head would even lift up.

The two springs coil attachments are at the very bottom and are at points lower than the jack trolley wheels.

Will there ever come a time that I will be required to re-install these wire/coil retainers at the bottom?

Thank you.

The wire holding down the yolk assembly is the only one that should be removed. This will not need to be used again unless you would be boxing the unit for shipment. This can be removed by pressing down on the yolk and releasing the yolk slowly after removal. The 2 springs on the unit should not removed.

answer 2
Those "wire/spring retainers" are used to secure the jack mechanism during shipping. You discard those as per the instructions. The ones I have seen were there to also help the jack fit inside the box/packaging. You should never have to use them again unless you intend to fit the jack back into the box.
