Hydraulic Jacks

Recommended Posts

Jody, they are hydraulic jacks operated via hydraulic fluid. No grease fittings as grease would simply gum up the mechanisms. Any lube on the shafts will act as a dirt magnet. That said, if you want to lube them do so with some transmission fluid on a rag and wipe them down just before retracting them. You could also use a silicone spray but IMO do not spray/wipe them until you're ready to pull them up. Again, any oil based fluid will act as a dirt magnet and dirt is not a friend of the jacks....Dennis

My 06 Dilpomat also has a grease fitting just above each base.  I greased them all earlier this year and wipe them down w ATF twice per year.
