Enhanced Design on GBJ-Series Bottle Jacks

Enerpac is upgrading the current GBJ-Series Bottle Jacks with a new, enhanced design. The new Bottle Jacks feature the same tonnage capacity and equivalent height as the existing tools, but offer a number of enhancements.

Old GBJ-Series Bottle Jacks New GBJ-Series Bottle Jacks
Jack Handle Fixed handle design with multiple pieces Single telescoping handle
Jack Handle Mount Fixed mount Swivel mount
Positioning Handle No positioning handle Positioning handle on 20 ton through 50 ton tools

As the matrix above indicates, the new Jacks feature a telescoping handle, which fits into a swivel mount. This replaces the current handle, which consists of multiple rods, which are inserted into one another, and fit into a stationary mount.

All 20 ton and larger tools feature a top positioning handle, which also serve as a storage location for the Jack handles when not in use.

In addition to these features, the new Bottle Jacks are lighter and more compact than the existing tools.

This upgraded design increases ease of use and allows the operator more freedom of movement while performing the application.
