Professional Toe jacks
Slide shoe design
The most important feature of this toe jack is not visible from the outside. It is called a slide shoe design. What is it and how does it work?
When lifting with the toe, the jack will want to lean forward. This now causes the jack to want to kick out plus the piston inside of the jack gets twisted forward. As the piston is now raised and lowered while it is twisted during the lifting process, it grinds and chips away at the shaft. This problem is common to all toe jacks.
The solution is the slide shoe design.
The silver boot carrying the lifting toe travels inside a shaft (red housing). Inside this shaft are half-moon shaped inserts that are recessed into the walls. These half-moons (the slide shoes) will counterbalance the leaning, prevent any damage to the shaft, and will reduce the kick-out tendencies. The slide shoe feature is patent protected and is exclusively build into these JUNG jacks. It cannot be found on any other toe jack.
