Locomotive Vehicle Lifting Jacks

Locomotive Vehicle Lifting Jacks

Matterson vehicle lifting Jacks are available in a variety of safe lifting capacities ranging from 6 tonne to 35 tonne.

They come in three types, retractable arm, fixed arm and cross beam type.

The first set of Jacks Matterson’s produced was a set of 20 tonne fixed arm in 1959 for British Rail. The specification required by British Rail meant that our Jacks were greatly over engineered but this is what has kept our Jacks still in service today 50+ years on….

We still offer all spares for Matterson Jacks, offering a full overhaul service or part exchange to bring your Jacks back up to Matterson Quality Standard.

We will also offer a good price for Matterson Jacks if you no longer require them.
