Can you email me instructions on adding hydraulic oil to an Alltrade professional 21/4 ton garage jack?

Question:

I have an All trade professional 21/4 ton garage jack. Model #689-J-214FH. Can you email me instructions on adding hydraulic oil to this unit? Also, info regarding the correct replacement of three ball "bearings" which were accidently expelled during my aborted attempt to add oil. A detailed parts list might suffice for this? I have unfortunately lost whatever instructions came with the roughly 12yr old unit. Thank you!

Answer:

Hello Peter,
Your unit is too old and the seals are no good. Therefore, I would suggest you destroy the unit so no one can ever use it again as these old jacks can fail without any notice. We advise this in view of your safety because the cost was under $50.00 and your life is worth much more than that. Buy a new unit which today, with new jack technology, should last much longer than the 12 years of the old one.

Thanks for asking,

Carl
