Jack Application Chart
THE FOLLOWING APPLICATION CHART IS PROVIDED FOR GUIDANCE ONLY
** Please Verify your weight & height requirements per the owners manual, or consult a mechanic **
We DO NOT recommend these for use on the following models; Beech Model 99, Beech 1900, Cheyenne I/II/III/IV, Queen Air, King Air, Conquest, Cessna Citation Series, T28, Pilatus or similar. We highly encourage personal discretion when choosing a jack for the intended aircraft. Please read "Jacking Instructions". This sheet is also provided on each model page.
CHOOSING THE CORRECT JACK
1. What is the distance from the ground to the jack point? It's best to have as much ram as possible left in the bottle.
2. How much weight are you lifting? If it's a flipper between a 3 ton and an 8 ton.... go with the 8.
3. How high do you need to lift the plane off the ground?
Alpha Aviation Inc's jack models use a unique "Building Block" design that allows you to insert or remove risers as needed to achieve varying staring heights. The versatility is something maintenance shops & mechanics find very useful. The chart below will show which model is most commonly used. If you see an ("N") next to the aircraft in question, please read the notes at the bottom of the page regarding that particular model. See below for a table outlining the effective ranges along with a list of CROSS-OVERS between models.

WHEN WORKING ON MULTIPLE MODELS OF AIRCRAFT; USE THE CROSS-OVER CHART BELOW SO
YOU CAN POSSIBLY MINIMIZE THE NUMBER OF JACKS REQUIRED AROUND THE HANGAR.
The different height ranges can be achieve by utilizing our "Building Block System" of adding or removing risers as needed.
||EFFECTIVE RANGES by model|| MODEL CROSS-OVERS
* 324W; Any 26" model will work with boosting the wing 2" onto the jack.
** 32" + Starting Height
Cross-Overs; these models will also work based on weight & height requirements. Example: Model #868W
Aero Commander - NO TURBOS or SCHWEICHS Additional locking collars are recommended
Bellanca Viking/Cruiser Master - It's possible the plane is being rolled onto blocks to get the #324W under the wing.
Cessna 208B Caravan - Model #868HLW has been used by others. We recommend additional locking collars. USE PERSONAL DISCRETION
Cessna 310/320/340 - 1 Model #326W and 2 Model #332 are most common. We've seen where 2 of each are needed. Please refer to your owners manual
Homebuilt - See "Choosing the Correct Jack" above to determine what best fits your needs
Lake Amphibian - The addition of a 6" top Ram Extension may be required. Additional
