How to Troubleshoot Torin Jacks

83

Torin produces several jacks that range from 2- to 50-ton capacity. Troubleshooting these jacks is no different than troubleshooting any standard bottle jack, or any floor jack, for that matter. This is because the basic principle of hydraulic jacks is the same regardless of what kind of jack it is.

Essentially, the jack is actuated, applying pressure to the hydraulic fluid, which in turn raises a steel piston within a sealed cylinder. Unfortunately, Torin jacks are not easily serviced at home, requiring professional rebuilding if any problems are evident.

Instructions

  • Inspect the Torin hydraulic jack carefully to determine if you can see any places where hydraulic fluid may be leaking from the hydraulic cylinder. These will appear as dark brown spots on the exterior of the cylinder.
