The AME SuperLift jack lifts from the lowest lift point of your vehicle. If necessary, the cylinder extension will give you ample elevation to raise your vehicle from its highest point. The total lifting procedure involves only one operator and can lift a 350 ton truck in minutes. Trouble free and safe, AME SuperLift Jacks operate on the universally accepted electric/hydraulic or air/hydraulic systems. The AME SuperLift jack will operate from the standard 90 160 psi shop air supply or the electric power, to suite your power specifications. AME SuperLift Jacks are fitted with 16 or 18 diameter tires on tapered roller bearings and are power driven, so that accurate positioning can be achieved quickly and safely. AME SuperLift jacks continue to prove themselves around the world and have become recognized as a safe, reliable lifting device.

Start-up Procedures
IMPORTANT
Warranties are not valid unless proper starting and maintenance procedures are followed. *NO AIR LINE LUBRICATORS WILL DAMAGE SEALS IN PUMP 1. Please read the maintenance manual over carefully before proceeding with start-up of the system. In particular, familiarize yourself with the location of oil shut off valve and the air inlet valve. 2. Visually check the equipment for any possible shipping damage. Should any evidence of this be detected, please report it immediately to your supervisor and/or www.ameintl.net. Send photographs if possible. 3. Familiarize yourself with the controls of the jack. 4. Remove the oil fill/vent; check the oil level, oil level should be easy to see. If oil cant be seen, top off with AW32 hydraulic oil. Oil should be filled with jack in the closed position. 5. Open oil supply valve, located next to the left tire (yellow handle). 6. Attach air supply to the valve at the top of the jack near the handle. Important: keep the line free of debris and no air lubricators. 7. Turn air valve to the ON position the pump will begin to operate. 8. Move the lever to the up position, let the cylinder reach full stroke, then the pump will slow down and sometimes stop pumping. 9. Move the lever down, and lower the cylinder into the closed position. 10. Notice the water separators beside the right tire, drain daily. 11. Before lifting refer to lifting procedures section. 12. Change filter element 6-12 hours after start-up.

Lifting Procedures
Insure you have finished the start-up procedures. AME SuperLift jacks are designed to lift on a concrete surface. Move the jack under the lifting point of the equipment your lifting, the cylinder has a removable end cap this can be removed and a SuperLift extension can be inserted to achieve the proper starting point. (Extra extensions can be ordered to fit different equipment). Use only original equipment extension for SAFETY due to the heavy loads. Never lift without either end cap or extension in place. Once the load is lifted turn OFF the air supply to the jack. The jacks are designed to be pumped up and down. All AME SuperLift jacks are designed with our patented Safety valve and will prevent the jack from retracting due to hydraulic fluid loss. Important: always use either the extension or the end cap on the jack or damage to the cylinder rod will occur.
