Whiting Portable Electric Jacks
Rugged Design, Painless Maintenance
Found in maintenance shops and rail yards across North America, the Whiting Portable Electric Jack is the industry standard that continues to outlast the competition.
With minimal required maintenance, this rugged design handles the toughest conditions found in railcar and locomotive shops.
All Whiting Jacks start with a welded steel base and structural steel column. Connected to this frame, the alloy steel jack screw is keyed to a worm gear supported by a large thrust bearing.
The jack screw uses precision-machined buttress threads. In this application, Buttress threads are more efficient and safer than other threads. The aluminum bronze nut travels on the screw and supports the welded steel lifting bracket.
The result is a Portable Electric Jack with dependable load-lifting capacity at any point within the lifting range.
Whiting portable electric rail jacks have many features that make your decision to choose jacks from Whiting an easy one, including:
Welded to the base is a massive structural steel column assembly housing an alloy steel jackscrew and aluminum bronze alloy jack nut.

A single operator manning a portable electric jack station can control the simultaneous operation of any number of jacks. Each jack may also be operated individually.
