Transmission jack for work on the heart of the vehicle
Frequently, a lift or similar may already be enough to handle the most common jobs to facilitate and facilitate a vehicle: repairs and maintenance on the Body are done quickly and the professional remains physically protected. But sometimes that is not enough and you need to get to the heart of the car: the engine or the transmission. Sensitive, big and heavy - be careful when working on the engine. If something goes wrong, the initial cost of a new model is very high. A Gear Lifter can help: It provides important support when removing the gearbox and makes subsequent repairs easier.

Operation of a motorized lift
In terms of how it works, the gearbox jack can be easily compared to a motor crane : the sturdy frame is made up of supporting struts - usually six in number - on wheels. These provide the necessary flexibility of the transmission jack. At the head of the engine lift you will find a mounted chain, which makes an important contribution to the removal of the engine: Directly above the engine compartment - and thus above the engine - the end is led around the engine. When the hydraulic lift is activated, the engine is removed from the engine compartment without damage.
Before you start removing the motor, however, you should think about all the necessary preparations: For example, is the fixing screw in the engine compartment loosened? Failure to do so may cause serious damage to the transmission jack and the engine or transmission.
Possibilities of a gearbox jack
A high degree of flexibility is provided by the gearbox lifter thanks to its possible height adjustment. Thus, it can be individually adapted to the height of each vehicle. If the gearbox or the motor has been safely removed from the car, you can then carry out all work with the aid of the jack directly next to the motor - without first removing the components completely. This function offers a variety of possible uses of the motor lifter, which go beyond the classic use in professional workshops. For the following areas of vehicle production, vehicle maintenance and vehicle repair, the gearbox jack is therefore a very useful tool:
- in workshops
- in service and testing stations
- for hobbyists for maintenance, repair or conversion
- in tuning workshops (private as well as commercial)
Make the right decision
The variety of applications, brands and other factors have resulted in a huge selection of gearboxes on the market. But not every gearbox is always suitable for your application - both qualitatively and functionally. For this reason, you should be sufficiently familiar with the various models in advance. If you want to benefit from your motor lift for a long time, the cost factor should be of secondary importance. It is more important to answer the following questions:
- What should be the maximum load?
- What height should the transmission jack be able to reach?
- For which vehicle types can it be used?
- Do you prefer a classic or hydraulic lift?
