Whatever it Takes
FOR ALL HEAVY MACHINERY MOVES
JACKS & RAMS
Hydraulic cylinders, which are also known as jacks or rams, are very versatile and can be applied in many different environments and applications. They can lift and lower a load, push, or pull it and even securely hold a load. In fact, there are so many choices, using a selection guide or speaking with an Enerpac hydraulic lifting specialist is recommended to determine the best option for your job. Overall, hydraulic cylinders can be categorized into these common types:
Trusted steel cylinders designed for the most common lifting, pushing, and pressing applications up to 500 tons.General Purpose Cylinders
The plunger design of these cylinders is ideal for pulling cables or bars.Hollow Plunger Cylinders
Safely and securely hold a load for an extended period with these mechanically locking cylinders.Lock-Nut Cylinders
Using a design-for-purpose approach, these cylinders will fit your low clearance applications.Low-Height Cylinders
As the name states, these cylinders are perfect for pulling objects together or apart.Pull Cylinders
The portability of Enerpac wheeled jacks makes them a very practical solution for lifting long-haul trucks, heavy mining, or construction equipment for wheel maintenance. Choose between the pneumatic Enerpac Pow’R-LOCK with automatic self-locking or the Enerpac Pow’R-RISER pneumatic or electric models.
When a heavy load is to be raised from below in an environment where space above the load is limited, the staged-lifting designs of incremental lifting solutions are the best option.
The self-locking Enerpac Cube Jack was designed with lightweight steel cribbing blocks. Each cribbing block is supported by a compact, stationary lifting frame, providing an easy-to-use, portable jacking system that is much safer and 800% more efficient than using wooden cribbing.Cube Jack
The Enerpac Jack-Up system is a multipoint, incremental lifting system and provides important advantages over using a multi-point hydraulic cylinder solution. With capacities from 125 to 750 tons each, a typical system includes four Jack-Up units, one positioned under each corner of a load for extremely high-capacity lifting.
The load is lifted in increments as support boxes are slid into the system. Advanced electronic controls take all the uncertainly and peril out of an otherwise very dangerous lift by ensuring proper placement of the supports and synchronizing the complete lift. Ideal for critical lifts such as replacing large bridge spans or undecking a shovel from earth moving equipment in a mining operation.
To extend the functionality of your Jack-Up system, consider adding extra barrels, bracing kits or a base frame trolley to your inventory.Jack-Up Systems
When the lifting application calls for a heavy load to be raised from above, there are a variety of options that meet that demand safely and efficiently.
Hydraulic gantries are a secure and productive way to lift and position heavy loads in applications where traditional cranes will not fit or when permanent overhead structures are not an option. Installing heavy machinery or wind turbine blades and foundation towers require a safe lifting solution with expert precision. There are many considerations involved in specifying the right gantry, but typically Bare Cylinder Gantries are well suited for loads less than 400 tons, while Boom Gantries easily handle loads up to 1,000 tons.
The cost-effective Enerpac SL-Series Super Bare Lift utilizes telescopic bare cylinders offered in 2 or 3 height stages. While, the heavy-duty Enerpac SBL-Series Super Boom Lift, with capacities up to 1,200 tons, offers stability and lifting height advantage.Hydraulic Gantries
All Enerpac hydraulic gantries are operated with a best-in-class control system. Safety is always at the forefront when lifting or positioning a heavy load. The preferred way to increase safety and add precision accuracy is with the wireless Enerpac Intelli-Lift control system. The advanced features provide operators extreme control over lift synchronization, side-shift and an emergency stop button should it ever be needed.
A variety of accessories can enhance the safety and performance of your hydraulic gantry. Choose from over a dozen different accessories from high-performance synthetic fiber slings and capacity shackles to skid tracks, header beans and so much more.
Today strand jacks are widely recognized as the most sophisticated heavy lifting solution. With a small footprint, mighty lifting capacity and up to 64-point advanced control systems, they are the preferred solution all over the world to erect bridges spans, load out offshore structures, and lift or lower heavy loads where the use of conventional cranes is neither economical nor practical.
The Enerpac strand jack functions like a linear winch. In a strand jack, steel strands are guided through the center of a hydraulic cylinder and anchored with wedges. Lowering and lifting is powered by stroking the cylinder in and out repeatedly, resulting in lifts that can reach up to hundreds of feet or meters.Strand Jacks
Synchronizing the movements of heavy loads between cranes is difficult and risky. The inaccuracy can result in damage to the load, support structures or worse, it can put workers at risk. The Enerpac SyncHoist system is a unique below-the-hook sling adjuster that positions heavy loads with precision. With its specialized hydraulic cylinders mounted directly in-line with rigging, the operator can precisely monitor and adjust each lifting point independently – manually or with automatic controls – reducing the number of cranes needed and the cost of multiple picks.SyncHoist Systems
Pairing your cylinder or jack with the most compatible high-pressure pump for your application will ensure optimal speed, control, and performance. Choose from air-driven, battery-powered, electric or hand pumps along with hydraulic hoses and accessories to create your perfect lifting system.
With the force of your own hand or foot, compact manual pumps are typically used for lighter tonnage applications or when portability is essential. Yet, the Enerpac P-Series of manual pumps do not compromise on performance. Models range from ultra-high pressure and high-pressure to low-pressure in both lightweight aluminum/nylon or durable steel.Manual Lifting Pumps
When compressed air is the most accessible power source, rely on air-over-hydraulic pumps for your lifting applications. The Enerpac PAM-Series is a range of pumps with twin air motors for rapid cylinder actuation, while the Enerpac PA-, PATG- and PARG-Series air pumps are compact and designed for reduced air consumption.Air Lifting Pumps
Lifting applications can often be on job sites with no access to power or in facilities where trip hazards are a concern. That’s when a battery-powered hydraulic pump is the better choice. The Enerpac XC-Series battery pumps have the performance of a powered pump, with the portability of a hand pump. Built for portability, speed and safety, the lithium-ion battery provides superior run time. Or consider the Enerpac ZC-Series high-flow battery pumps with a unique motor design and 3-stage pump to maximize productivity.Battery Lifting Pumps
Hydraulic pumps driven by electricity are highly efficient, powerful and are often the preferred choice. The Enerpac Z-Series of hydraulic pumps have a long, proven track record for use in all types of lifting applications. Specifically, the Enerpac ZU-Series is ideal for heavy lifting with high pressure-drop circuits and long hose runs. Choose from Classic ZU models with electro-mechanical components ideal for demanding construction applications or the Pro version with an LCD display to monitor pump performance.
For industrial applications, the ZE-Series pumps provide a full range of models with higher flow, by-pass pressure and run cooler for 18% less current draw to reduce energy consumption.
When high performance and weight are both key factors, the Enerpac E-Pulse Series of hydraulic pumps provide a leading power-to-weight ratio. A unique motor design, valve options and variable speed incased in lightweight materials create superior portability convenience.Electric Lifting Pumps

Coordinated Lifting Pumps
For lifting and lowering applications with multiple points, coordinated lifting pumps are a far better alternative than using independently operated pumps. To achieve high-precision movement of heavy objects it is necessary to control and synchronize the movements of multiple lifting points. By controlling the oil flow to each cylinder, the pumps maintain very accurate positional control. By eliminating manual intervention, coordinated lifting pumps help maintain structural integrity and increases the productivity and safety of a lift.
The Enerpac Split-Flow Manifolds are suitable for 4-point lifting applications when exact precision is not as important. When integrated with an Enerpac lifting pump, the hydraulic flow is divided by the pressure-compensated flow control values of the Split-Flow Manifold for a simultaneous lift.Split-Flow Manifolds
For larger multi-point lifting applications, a split-flow pump is nearly always a better alternative than independently operated pumps. The Enerpac SFP-Series offer models from 2 to 8 outlets that can function individually or simultaneous with a remote control pendent. Split-flow pumps provide added precision safety and are ideal for multi-point applications such as bridge deck lifting, moving large structures such as wind turbines or stage lifting in construction or shipbuilding.Split-Flow Pumps
A synchronous lifting system will also support a multi-point lifting application, but with the precision and safety that the most complex, heavy lifting applications demand. The Enerpac EVO Synchronous Lifting System, with its intuitive user interface, gives a single operator control over the entire lift with an accuracySynchronous Lifting Pumps
