Area of application

Munktell's jack is a substantial, stable and safe lifting device for all heavy lifting. It is particularly useful for setting up i.e. threshing machines and for horizontal alignment. The same applies for aligning a traction engine or rail car for the fine adjust- ment of the belt drive for threshing machines, etc.

History

The exhibited jack was probably used at Munktell's for lifting traction engines, etc. It was discovered during the preparation of the C Hall in the museum, and was rescued from decaying on a scrap heap.
