How to Select the Right
When selecting the appropriate model RakJak™ for your use, consider these suggestions: The most popular Model is the DBT2. Its 5 3/4 inch collapsed height will fit under most cars and the 8 inch stroke will provide a 13 3/4 inch total lifting height that will lift most wheels off the ground. The lifting power of DBT2 and DBT2L is two tons. And for all around shop use, the DBT2 is more than adequate. However, if you are working on a lot of SUVs, the TBT2 (also 2 ton) is probably more suitable. The advantage of the TBT2 is the overall lifting height of 18 inches. The collapsed height of the TBT2 is higher than the DBT2 at 6 7/8 of an inch. Therefore, it may not be suitable for a shop that works primarily on small cars where the jack points are much lower. For higher load capacities, such as larger SUV’s and light trucks, use the 3 ton TBT3L. Choose the RakJak™ that fits your needs and enjoy years of trouble free use.
If your work is always performed on the floor, then the DBT2L or the TBT2L is really more desirable. Both models offer wheels for transport, a three-foot handle – much like a floor jack – that will adjust in a variety of positions and a control valve at the end of the handle. Remember the DBT2L and the TBT2L have the same collapsed height and extended heights as the DBT2 and the TBT2.
