A great place to start, the safe lifting capacity is the most important feature of a floor jack.

The hand-operated Schwaben Jack can safely lift 2 tonnes with its extra strong reinforced arm and 6 locking positions for a secure load at multiple heights.

Rock solid lifting is aided by the jack’s heavy duty 584-inch diameter load pin which features a posi lock ball for stability.

With the Schwaben, aluminium strikes the perfect balance between sheer strength and durability, and the ability to slide from position to position with ease.

Lifting Range

Each floor jack offers a different lifting range or minimum clearance height.

This gives you all the clearance height to perform the essential tasks that keep your street machine in fine form.

Lifting Speed

An 8 to 10 lifting bar stroke rate is considered standard with most jacks, whereas the Schwaben Low Profile Jack, armed with its dual pump pistons, can raise the saddle to the max height in 5 swift pumps. 

Not only does this require minimum effort for the user, but it’s also super-fast.

The angular positioned pump pistons extract the most lift out of every single stroke, even when the jack is completely in situ under the car.
