Safety Features

Extra Stability

feature-pic1 Scorpion HEJ series jacks operate at just 3300 psi, which is one third of many of our competitor’s. At this pressure, the jacking cylinder bore must be considerably larger to generate the full capacity of the jack. The larger bore, rod and base plate make for extremely stable jacking. Scorpion’s patented trunnion mounting allows the jacking cylinder to free stand flat on the floor.

Greater Control

The use of double acting jacking cylinder (including the telescopic models) gives greater control particularly during descent. Counterbalance valves prevent “over run” should the load try to descend faster than the pump can supply oil. This requires the jack to be powered down and prevents accidental lowering of the load.

Three Way Overload Protection

  • An air pressure regulator is set to 90psi (96psi for HEJ150), the level required for maximum lift.
  • Installed directly after the regulator is an air pressure relief valve set to 95psi.
  • An hydraulic pressure relief valve is incorporated in the hydraulic circuit.

Low Pressure Operation

Because Scorpion uses just one third the pressure of many of their competitors the hydraulic components last longer and are less likely to fail suddenly. In the event of a catastrophic failure there will be three times the oil to lose with only one third the pressure to force it out. The collapse rate of a Scorpion will be much slower than units working at 10,000psi.

Low Effort to Move and Position

The combination of large diameter wheels and pneumatic tyres, adjustable axle position, and adjustable handle not only reduce the effort required but, most importantly, eliminates strain on the operator’s back.

Simple Operation

A simple toggle switch (pneumatic valve) located well away from the load controls “UP-HOLD-DOWN”. Counter balance valves prevent the load from creeping down during “HOLD” and require the jack to be powered down.

Load Holding Chocks for all new models

Model Features

feature-pic3MLJ Series

  • Super Slim Design
  • Only 457mm (18″ wide) excluding the base plate, allows close positioning to inside tyre
  • Once load chocks are placed around the rod the load is lowered on top of them. Tapered spigots top and bottom of the chocks provide perfect alignment with the jacking cylinder ensuring safe, secure locking of the load.
  • Forklift points make long distance moving and/or loading a breeze. A lifting eye is also provided.

Use it as a stand

  • Light weight aluminium load chocks (stroke locking blocks)
  • Allows jack to be locked at increments of 51mm (2 inches)
  • Load supported by a flange on the rod and not directly on the load itself
  • Meets standards for floor stand stability

ELP Series

Features especially for underground mining conditions

  • Extra low closed height – 250mm (9.84″)
  • High lift – 4 and 5 stage jacks
  • Long reach – low profile of the jack extends 450mm (17.71″) from the tyres to the centre of the jack ram
  • High ground clearance for operating on mine shaft floors
  • Large diameter base for good stability on gravel floors
  • Boxed forklift points and folding handle for convenient underground transport


Floor Stand Features

HT50 and HT100 Hand Trucks

  • For any surface: the HT50 and HT100 hand truck attaches and detaches quickly and effortlessly to the STT models
  • Adjustable handle height
  • Adjustable wheel position for perfect balance
