BEFORE USE
* Read the operator's
manual
completely
and familiarize
yourself thoroughly
with the
product, its components
and recognize
the
hazards
associated
with its use.
* Occasionally
during shipping and handling,
the hydraulic
oil in jack
may
become
unstable
or air may trapped in the system,
both of which can interfere
with the jacks
lifting performance.
To stabilize
the
hydraulic
oil,
it is
recommended
to cycle the jack a few times
without applying load:
, Close release valve by turning the jack
handle clockwise
until tight.
, Pump the handle
until the jack saddle
reaches its maximum
height.
, Open
release
valve
by turning
jack
handle counter-clockwise,
but no more
than
1/2 full turn at a time. Allow
the
saddle
to reach its lowest position.
* Repeat
the above
procedure
a few
times.
To release air from the hydraulic
system:
, Open the release
valve by turning
the
jack handle counterclockwise,
but never
by more than 1/2 full turn at a time.
, Remove
the oil filler
screw
from the
cylinder (Fig. 4).
, Rapidly
pump
jack
handle
through
several
full strokes.
, Reinstall
the oil filler
screw
into the
cylinder again and jack is now ready to
use.
BEFORE EACH USE
Make a visual
inspection
before
each use
of the floor jack
by checking
for abnormal
conditions,
such as cracked welds, leaks and
damaged,
loose, or missing parts.
DAMAGE TO JACK
If you think jack has been subjected
to an
abnormal
load or shock, have it inspected
for
damage
at a Sears or other qualified
service
center before using it again.
