The thing that is nice with the air over hydraulic cylinders is that you DO NOT need air to operate it, so it is still portable. You can still pump the ram manually and work it that way or use air when it is convenient.

So you can have it both ways.

Bah, forget the manual or air driven hydraulic rams. Just use what I use.

With the extensions we made, I can make quick work of moving a car or truck body

Note: If I didn't have access to the forklift I would recommend the pneumatic/hydraulic ram. Save those biceps for turning wrenches not pumping a jack

Some people are just lucky! To bad every one in hot rodding don't have access to a fork lift. I'm jealous!

Don't get me wrong I know how lucky I am. I have had to do plenty of lifting in the past without access to a forklift.

I wish every hot rodder had access to a forklift.

I am pretty sure once you are at the height you need you are able to diconnect the air line for untethered movement around you work area. The air connection with lever looks just like the unit the tire service I use has in their trucks. You can air up the jack then disconnect and use the same air line to run the impact for r&r the tire.

Yes, you can disconnect the air line after you are at your wanted height. You do not need the air line to let it down as you still have the release valve just like the manual cylinder. You don't even need air to lift anything. Use just like your manual lift and hand pump it or plug in an air hose and let the air motor do the lifting.
