Jack Repair & Services
  • Jack Load Testing
    • How often should jacks be load tested? (Statement by Tronair) - Tronair recommends functional load testing of hydraulic jacks on an annual (12-month) preventative maintenance cycle. Tronair also recommends load testing any time the jack seals have been replaced.
      When testing the jack, the force readings recorded by the test person should fall between the maximum and minimum values (105% - 110% of the rated capacity). We adhere to all Tronair jack load testing procedures and guidelines.
