Beginning with manually operated screw jacks over 100 years ago, today’s high pressure, hydraulic jacking systems & components provide safety, efficiency, and endless capabilities from a 1-ton lift to several thousand tons. Buffalo Hydraulic has been designing and providing high tonnage jacking systems for over 73 years.
Buffalo Hydraulic offers wide-ranging single and multiple-point high-tonnage hydraulic jacking systems in hand-operated, electric-hydraulic, air motor driven, and gasoline – diesel-powered hydraulic pump options.
In proving the weight of LC-39A & LC-39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, our custom-designed jacking system was selected to prove and maintain a vertical lifting tolerance within 0.035″ over 21 points of lift. Through both projects, the custom Buffalo Hydraulic weighing system maintained and digitally proved a lifting tolerance over all 21 jacking points of not more than 0.020″ while proving respective weights of 5,280,000 lbs. (LC-39A) and 5,340,000 lbs. (LC-39B).
Upon review, the mechanical engineering team at Guinness World Records has recognized this as “The Heaviest Object Ever Weighed”.
Our jacking systems are offered with a variety of features and specifications which can all be customized for your specific project needs. We have a variety of single-acting, spring return, and load return jacking cylinders ranging from 1 – 1,500 tons of force. From there, defining your required number of jacking points and choosing from lock-nut styles, double-acting, and through-hole models cylinders will begin the system design. Our jacking systems also offer solutions for unique applications with their lightweight aluminum and low profile, pancake design.
