Lifting jacks for wagons

The load range of lifting jacks for wagons starts from a lifting force of approx. 8tons and goes up to 40tons. Such high load is to be expected if loaded 4-axle wagons have to be lifted.

The form of the lifting arm is similar to that of streetcars and subways. This does not apply to lifting jacks for tank cars. Due to the round cross-section of the tanks and the associated load pick up points located further inside, these often have to be particularly long.
