Adjustable saddles in new Snap-on transmission jacks

The Snap-on 1/2-ton telescopic hydraulic (TJ100) and air/hydraulic (TJA100) transmission jacks feature saddles with multi-position, adjustable ratcheting arms to fit any configuration of FWD, RWD and 4-wheel drive transfer cases, the company says.

“These innovative Snap-on designs eliminate the need to create non-traditional means to support irregular transmission pans,” says Michael T. DeKeuster, a Snap-on Tools product manager. “The unique ratcheting arms on the TJ100 and TJA100 fit any configuration with ease and precision, making these products unmatched for helping technicians remove and install transmissions and transfer cases, while ensuring safer, controlled transport.”

Snap-on says the TJ100 has a manual, two-stage lifting operation using hands-free foot pedals, while the TJA100 couples an air-assisted, dual hydraulic ram first-stage lifting operation with a manually-operated second stage via hand crank. With a 75-in. maximum height for access and a 35-in. minimum height for easier transmission movement from the jack to the worktable, both transmission jacks offer a wide range of motion and utilize ball-bearing thrust washers on the saddle tilt adjusters for ease of turning, the company says.

The heavy-duty 36-in. bases also feature four 5-in. polyurethane swivel casters, two in locking style, for easy maneuverability. In addition, the jacks are equipped with high-performance hydraulic oil for extreme temperatures and reduced wear, premium seals on pumps and ram pistons for a longer tool life, and a cam buckle tie-down strap to secure the load, the company says. Each is compliant with the most recent safety standards put forth for ASME-PASE 2014.
