What Is a Long Ram Hydraulic Jack?
A long ram hydraulic jack is the most common attachment to provide lifting power to an engine crane. A long ram jack for an engine hoist or crane is different from other jacks with a similar function because it is not built to be used on its own.
The long ram hydraulic jacks offered by PASSCA feature a manual movement that converts your strength into a much more powerful impact – saving garage employees or yourself the extra sweat and stress of manhandling expensive engine components.
What Are Some Features of a Long Ram Hydraulic Jack?
Use-Specific Bases; Some of the models have a flat base, which allows them to be used easily in a variety of situations. Others have base mounting holes that let the jack integrate quickly with an engine hoist.
Solid Construction; All long ram jacks from PASSCA feature high quality solid steel construction and a coating that resists grease, dirt, and moisture – this ensures a long, useful lifespan for your jack.
Double-acting Pump; The top model of these jacks for an engine crane is the double-acting long ram hydraulic jack, which allows for much quicker lifts.
What Types of Long Ram Hydraulic Jack Are On the Market?
Currently, PASSCA produces six distinct models of long ram hydraulic jacks, 4 featuring a flat bottom and 2 made for use with our engine cranes.
The flat-bottomed options include a 3-ton long ram hydraulic jack, 5-ton long ram hydraulic jack, 8-ton long ram hydraulic jack, and even a heavy-duty 12-ton long ram hydraulic jack.
There are also 2 models for simpler use with a hoist, although they both have a weight capacity of 3 tons.
The 3-ton single-action type with mounting holes is different from the 3 ton flat bottom long ram hydraulic jack because it can be easily added to an engine hoist but they have similar lifting power.
The double-action type is the best for a 3-ton long ram jack rebuild kit for an engine crane – it features a dual pump action that makes use quicker and easier on the operator
What Is a Hydraulic Ram Jack Used For?
Long ram hydraulic jacks are most commonly used as engine crane replacement ram, allowing older engine hoists to be repaired quickly or upgraded to handle heavier loads.
The engine hoist cylinder on a crane can eventually wear out through improper use and poor care, so these replacements keep an entire crane from needing to be replaced.
Also, horizontal long ram hydraulic jacks can be used for manually adjusting the position of heavy objects and machinery, by pushing instead of being used to hoist as part of an engine crane.
These jacks are also used to support structures or for bailing out a stuck vehicle, such as in offroading or farm work.
What Other Equipment Is Used With a Long Ram Hydraulic Jack?
Long ram hydraulic jacks are meant mostly to be an attachment for an engine crane, also known as an engine hoist.
They can be used on their own in some scenarios, but the long shape means you will need a relatively large amount of clearance to insert the jack.
What Are the Basics of Long Ram Jack Repair?
Some of the most common issues with hydraulic jacks are a failure to fully extend or hold weight, foamy or milky oil, and leaking fluid or pressurization.
If the hydraulic fluid is contaminated by moisture, you will need to dry out and replace the fluid to avoid corrosion.
Most problems with trapped air can be solved by bleeding the jack – pushing through the system to remove excess air.
Leaks can be identified using a simple soap test to see where air bubbles form — and most leaks are related to the rubber O-rings that naturally dry out over time and are inexpensive to replace.
Maintenance: How Do You Fill a Hydraulic Long Ram Jack With Oil?
There is an oil filler plug on the jack that can be removed for easy access to the oil or fluid reserves.
To fill your long ram jack with fresh hydraulic fluid, simply open that plug and carefully add more fluid.
Can you use motor oil in hydraulic jacks? Technically, any oil can work in the pressurized compartment for a short amount of time if you are in a time crunch… but if you use something other than hydraulic fluid you will need to flush it and replace it as soon as possible to avoid damage or corrosion.
Maintenance: How Do You Bleed a Hydraulic Ram?
Bleeding a jack is an important way to extend its life and keep it functioning.
Here is how to bleed your jack:
- Open the valve and pump ten times.
- Close the valve and raise the ram until it is fully extended.
- While extended, pump ten more times.
- Release the valve again, and lower the ram.
- Repeat this once or twice more to remove all the air from the jack.
Maintenance: What Other Long Ram Jack Parts Do I Need?
A long ram jack from PASSCA comes with everything you will need to perform a lift, but if you need to secure a load, you may need jack stands to be safe.
Over time, you will need to top off or replace the hydraulic fluid inside the jack and replace rubber gaskets if they dry up and wear out.
Maintenance: How to Rebuild a Long Ram Hydraulic Jack?
A long ram hydraulic jack rebuild kit would essentially contain new O-rings, some hydraulic fluid, and rags for wiping down the jack.
After a thorough cleaning and identifying any broken or worn-down components, you should be able to contact the manufacturer for replacement parts, although the solid steel construction of PASSCA jacks means this will be incredibly rare or far in the future.
