Air lifting jacks with built-in air bearing, fixing bracket, and load leveling crank

An alternative to the standard caster load modules is the air lifting jack which contains its own base module as well as a lifting and leveling crank assembly.

The air lifting jack works in exactly the same way as a standard round steel module except that it has the lifting and leveling facility. Lifting jacks normally have A-type air bearings on board and provide a degree of leveling which is critical for certain loads - usually machinery - that need to be level before operational use. Leveling is by way of a crank handle.

Air lifting jacks are supplied with mounting brackets for easy attachment to your load.

To the right is a typical lifting jack which shows the air bearing and leveling assembly.
