@ThunderThighs may I have four? I need to lift a garden shed
48 tons of lifting capability? That’s a helluva garden shed.
one on each corner, silly. gotta raise it evenly
Sorry, they’re sold out.
thanks but needed the shorties
Based on this limited snapshot, I suspect you’re in Product Management . “Must lift all 4 corners simultaneously.” “Must begin lift at 6 inch mark.” “Equipment costs must not exceed $99.96.”
As an engineer, (and again, with this very limitied project snapshot), you really only need 1 jack, and any reasonable height model will do. Just have a stack of blocks handy (2x4 pieces, flat cinder pavers, whatever). Lift corner A 2-3", insert block. Repeat for B, C, and D… then A, B, C, and D again until you’ve achieved your lift goal. You will, of course have stability issues (similar to those you’d have using 4 jacks) that will require attention, lest the shed fall down and flatten you. The additional time involved in this method over using 4 jacks is probably less additional time than what we have invested writing comments back and forth to one another. Also, you don’t have to enlist 3 people to help.
Good luck with your project.
I forgot to mention that I built said shed. I don’t have that much confidence in myself.
I traded a car for a shed and they used hi-lift jacks and 6x6’s to get it high enough to back a truck under it. They delivered it and placement was the reverse procedure.
I don’t have much confidence in this jack. I got mine and either someone forgot to tighten the bleed screw or forgot the O-ring for the ram. I had a soaked outer and inner box that reeks of brake fluid and the paint is coming off of the jack. I’m really surprised that USPS delivered it; I had a envelope get help up for being damaged in transit because the mail person spilled his cherry limeade on it.
