The Malabar 733A fixed height tripod jack is a 40-ton capacity, single-stage hydraulic jack designed primarily for use in aircraft maintenance. It consists of a tripod structure, hydraulic cylinder assembly, reservoir, valve block assembly, hand pump assembly, tow handle, and swivel casters. The jackleg 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. Model 733A is built to withstand harsh environmental conditions and rugged use and to provide many years of continuous service. Our customers are guaranteed a quality product with each purchase and are assured of our continued product support whenever and wherever the need arises
