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.


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.
