The Pakka Jacks Lifting system fully supports the load at every stage of the lifting operation. Its unique patented auto-packing system significantly reduces costs and improves safety and speed for servicing and repair of large-scale mining equipment.

The unique patented auto-packing system reduces downtime by up to 85 per cent and cuts costs as much as 70 per cent. This is a game changer for mining operators where machinery downtime can cost millions of dollars in lost productivity.

The system serves as both lifts and stands, with the load fully supported, not suspended, at every stage of the lifting operation. Pakka Jacks units are also certified to withstand significant side-loading.

How it works

From 165 tonne to 2200 tonne, Pakka Jacks lifting systems offer a huge range of capabilities across a broad spectrum of applications.

With lift units that are self-contained, all lifting hydraulics and packing mechanisms are packaged in a solid, compact casing with excellent stability and safety. Certified lifting lugs, control input points and secondary hydraulic input points complete the general description of the lifting units. The system is controlled from a fully enclosed, air-conditioned control console.

Each work-site application is approached individually, with each new project documented and methodologies tailored to suit – allowing us to build a comprehensive library of engineering specifications and technical detail.

The Pakka Jacks system meets or exceeds the requirements of all relevant Australian standards and workplace regulations and is the only lifting system that meets current Australian Workcover regulations.
