Jacks are machines used to lift heavy objects, such as vehicles, trailers, structures, or heavy machinery. Jacks come in a range of styles for different applications. Common varieties include bottle jacks, which resemble a large bottle in shape and use hydraulic force to lift the load; floor jacks, which typically contain a long pump handle and caster wheels and sit low to the floor; and tongue jacks, which can be mounted onto the frame of a trailer to lift and lower it. Jacks can be used on construction sites or in warehouses, automobile repair shops, or industrial facilities.
