Lifting jacks for tramways

The compact lifting jacks of the ESH series are best suited for lifting tramways. These are designed for a load between 6 and 10 tons per jack. The vehicle or wagon weight can therefore be between 24 and 40 tons.

Although lifting jacks are basically a series product, the load support must often be adapted to the project or vehicle. This can be tricky with low-floor tramways, as there are often only centimeters between the floor and the attachment point, between which there is space for the column base and the lifting arm.

If different types of vehicles are to be lifted with the same system, it can be useful to use interchangeable lifting arms. In this way, lifting points of different heights can be compensated for and reasonable working heights can still be achieved.
