KENOSHA, WI - A new, lightweight aluminum Service Jack from Snap-on Tools
Company lets automotive technicians lift vehicles weighing up to 1.5 tons. The Blue-Point
RACEJACK Aluminum Service Jack has a net weight of 37.5 pounds and requires only seven
strokes for full height capacity, allowing users to quickly and conveniently lift vehicles for under
car maintenance and tire changes.
RACEJACK reaches a maximum height of 17.52 inches with its one-piece casting lift arm.
A double knurl top on the two-piece, 47.25-inch long handle helps the technician keep a grip on
the handle during operation. A rubber bumper is included on the handle's bottom to protect the
vehicle's finish. The unit also includes a front roller wheel for added stability during use.
RACEJACK is constructed with a breather valve to prevent hydraulic lock and ensure
smooth lifting. Blue anodized (coated) side plates offer extra protection against corrosion. The
side handles are designed with gradual curves for confined area operation. The lift arm, handle
yoke and rear caster bracket are built with brushed aluminum for lighter weight. A rear handle
makes carrying the RACEJACK to the workplace easy and convenient.
Included with the Blue-Point RACEJACK Aluminum Service Jack is a pair of Blue-Point
ALUMSTAND Aluminum Jack Stands, offering a three ton capacity to hold the vehicle's frame in
place. The stands have a net weight of just 9.26 pounds/pair and accommodate six different
height settings in one-inch intervals from 10.5 inches to 15.39 inches. A seven-inch wide
reinforced cast base and chrome lock-pin with retainer clip are included for a sturdy, firm hold
while technicians complete their tasks.
RACEJACK and ALUMSTAND are designed to meet ANSI PALD 2003 Standards, which
ensure proper safety and performance for portable automotive lifting devices. Customers can
