A NEW hydraulic jack, designed to .be of all-round value in maintenance shops, is being marketed by E. P. Barrus, Ltd., 35-37, Upper Thames Street, London, E.C.4. The jack, with its accessories, is supplied on a-portable steel stand and it enables repairs to bodies, wings, frames, etc., to be carried out with the minimum of equipment. The pump and ram of the jack comprise two separate units that are connected by a flexible hose. -This division of the jack into two ,sections 'enables the ram to deliver power in any direction. The ram is threaded at both ends to permit attachment of any of the :30 aceee. sores, and in any combination to fit the individual repair in hand.
Mounted at one end of the stand is a press frame, which uses the rani for power. The pump is mounted, on one side of the stand, and is removable for work in or under the vehicle, whilst the ram unit is connected to the pump by a 6-ft. reinforced flexible hose that is capable of withstanding high pressure.
The 30 attachments provided as standard equipment include malleable iron toes, body plates, angle irons, chain blocks, spring spreaders, clamps and caps, two welded steel chains and a series of metal pipe extensions
of various lengths. The attachments enable the jack to push, pull, clamp, spread or straighten under hydraulic power. The operator's safetyhas been carefully studied and he is able to stand some 6 ft. away from the rail, so that any chance of injury from the breaking of parts is thereby avoided.
The complete let, which is known as the Porto-Power, is to be sold at £38, and certain of the units may be purchased separately, if required.
