The manual handle is for releasing the air hydraulic pressure pumped in to jack to raise the ram. You can also use the handle to jack the ram up manually. You all ways have to snug the release valve shut to raise the ram and turn opposite to open valve to let ram down or retract it.

Mine retracts with my foot on apparatus I have it mounted to. About 100 pounds. The Torin retracts faster the more you open the release valve.

The jack will require between 87 and 116 psi of air pressure to operate. You will have to run a separate air line for each jack in order for them to operate simultaneously.

answer 2
You could feasibly daisy-chain multiple jacks together on one air supply line and operate them with one air controller (a simple blow gun would work). The problem you'd have is in how to lower them all sinultaniously. The lowering valve has to be opened manually. I dont see a way to hook the lowering valves together. If you could overcome this part, then you'd have to have a hugh amount of air volume to operate them together.

The air pump pressure is 0.6 - .08 MPA. It can not be used manually without air. The unit will need an air compressor that will provide 87 - 116 PSI operate.

answer 2
You can run this ram on as little as 90psi, but you will need a fair amount of air volume for it to operate well. I have a 30 gallon air tank on my compressure and the motor started running when the ram was only about 1/4 stretched out. So I found another 30 gallon tank and "daisey-chained" it to my current compressor tank. Now the compressor doesn't kick in till the hydraulic ram is almost fully stretched out.
