Bottle jacks use hydraulic force (as opposed to a turning screw thread, or scissor motion) to lift heavy equipment. They are typically graded to lift 2, 3 and 12 tons. Most often they are used with a car jack stand as a car or truck jack. Hydraulic bottle jacks are generally easier to use than other types of jacks and can last a lifetime if maintained properly.
