Pakka Jacks on Shovel-min (1)Pakka Jacks, which specializes in on-site hydraulic excavator and shovel lifts, delivers an end-to-end service for major component replacement and repair services. Now they have supercharged their service by nearly doubling their jacks and accessories. The newly upgraded fleet now includes three sets of 300-metric-ton (mt) jacks, two sets of 500-mt jacks, and one set of 200-mt jacks which are strategically placed in high-demand areas of Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia.

Their boosted fleet also includes additional auxiliary gear such as slew bearing and track frame slides to support the increased units, meaning they can service excavators and shovels of all sizes, for any work-scope. .

Pakka Jacks’ commitment to providing a safer service is built into the foundations of the company, having developed their own, patented self-packing technology. This innovative approach ensures that the jacks are constantly locked in throughout the lift, meaning they’re considered a certified stand, rather than a suspended load. This distinction crucially allows a range of work to take place on the machine once elevated and removes the chance of a hydraulic failure or drop.

These high-tech, self-packing jacks can be put to work in practical scenarios:

Excavator Lifts: They are specially developed for lifting hydraulic excavators and shovels ensuring safe and efficient shutdowns.

Slew Bearing Changes: Pakka Jacks are employed in performing slew bearing changes, with a tailor-made slew bearing slide enabling a smooth and low-risk operation.

Track Frame Replacements: With Pakka Jacks’s track frame slides, replacement of track frames can be executed with ease – eliminating risk from suspended loads.

Undercarriage Rollouts: Using a mobilization console, the Pakka Jacks team can fully remove the undercarriage leaving the car-body suspended for further works.

Pakka Jacks said it can do in one week what traditional methods take two to four weeks to achieve.
