I purchased 3 of these bottle jacks to raise a sagging 100 yr old house. Center load bearing wall needed raising 2" and when placed on top of 7" dia. heavy gauge steel pipe w/ 1/2" flanges, they raised it with ease. Doing this kind of work is dangerous so I take my time and raise slowly. It helps to have heavy duty jack posts to assist me as I move down the beam. Walls above floor joists are also supported by jack posts and raised at the same time. If your looking at these jacks for house raising you'll love them., just make sure you have enough of them and a solid base and you'll be fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Irishwolf Excellent lift capability
Purchased three of these to level my house. From previous reviews and as described in the pamphlet I bled the jacks first, easy to do. Two of the three jacks performed flawlessly the first time. The third jack did not hold its height and I had to re-bled again, after that it worked well. Excellent value and quality for the price.

I purchased this item to jack up my one-story cottage which had settled in several locations. I made 1/4" - 1/2" adjustments per day in one location, added shims, then moved the jack to the next location. It is time consuming (1 hour/day), but considering it took 40 years for the problem to develop, what is a week or two? For a cottage it may be overkill, but it had no problem lifting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lifted2014 Very nice bottle jack for the price. Solid built and great for the project DIYer
Bought 6 of these jacks to do a floor lift project. First jack out the box drifted real bad but I remembered from another review to do a post shipping bleed on it. So I opened the valve, gave about 10 strokes to the pump to bleed down side air. Then I closed the valve and pumped the jack up to full stroke ( about 10 extra pumps after reaching full stroke resistance. opened valve and pushed piston down to full low position. Worked like a champ with only .006 drift on a 8 ton load in 5 days. ( yes I put a dial indicator on it) I think some jack have been returned in error because this post ship bleed down was not done.
oh by the way, about 2 weeks after use I read the manual and low and behold .... right there ..... post ship bleed warning.
When in a tight crawl space , you want a quality jack supporting the load and protecting your life.

I bought two of these jacks to repair termite damage in the main beam and floor joists in a 80year old house. So far I couldn't be happier, they do everything that you could want them to. Small and compact for under the house work but powerful. ( Just be sure to bleed the ram of air before using or they'll leak down under a load.)

Needed to raise the old wash house about 6" to level it out. Bought two of these units and had the job completed within 30 minutes. Well worth the cost.

This is great. I liked it so well I got a 2nd one.
I am jacking up my house and being female I do not have shoulder strength that men do and this has made my job so easy that everyone should have one or two in my case.
I have already recomended it to 3 people.
