The Malabar 706A is an 18-ton capacity, single stage hydraulic jack designed primarily for use in aircraft maintenance. The jack features a spring-centered cylinder assembly that pivots on a ball and socket located at the bottom of the cylinder assembly inside the base weldment.

The jack leg pads are raised off the ground by spring loaded casters. The casters will retract and the pads rest on the ground when a load is applied to the jack.
