Consisting of over 1,900 products and spread across 192 pages, the NEW Hi-Force 2012 catalogue is by far the biggest and most comprehensive offering from Hi-Force, the leading UK-based manufacturer of high pressure hydraulic tools and equipment.
The catalogue, which is packed full of product and technical information, also includes the latest additions to the Hi-Force range. Most notably, the new generation ToughLift Jacking System which offers users the easiest and safest method of lifting material haulers in the mining and construction industry, where minimal maintenance and repair downtime of capital intensive equipment is essential. The range which comprises of 12 models, has lifting capacities from 50 – 200 tonnes, and offers a choice of hydraulic lift height options on the 100 & 200 tonne versions, making the Toughlift one of the strongest and most versatile lifting jacks in the market today. Suitable for lifting even the largest earth haulers in the World, all models are powered by an integrated electric driven or air driven hydraulic pump unit and feature a remote push button hand pendant control unit, with a 5 metre control cable for easy operation, safely and remotely from the jacking point. The Hi-Force ToughLift jacking system incorporates a number of patented features, including a multi-positional transport & lifting handle and a unique swivel jacking base to guarantee safe and correct positioning of the lifting cylinder under the vehicle, prior to lifting it up. Fitted with large diameter wheels and solid rubber tyres for easy manoeuvring, all models are narrow in width, enabling them to fit into confined spaces whether in use or in storage, and have the smallest footprint size compared to all other competitor brand models. There is also a large variety of optional extras available to compliment the range including mechanical load holding blocks, swivel load caps and mechanical locking and slip lock extensions, all of which add further safety features and benefits to the operator.
Another popular addition to the catalogue is the GTB1 and PTB1 Bead Breakers. These NEW time saving accessories compliment the ToughLift range, eliminating danger and reducing the effort required to change tyres on large trucks, tractors and earthmovers.
The GTB Giant Bead Breaker is suitable for use on 5 piece rims 25" to 51" (635 to 1295 mm). With this model you can remove larger tyres with ease using a powerful 14 tonnes capacity, 700 Bar hydraulic cylinder which has a nett weight of 12.5kgs.
The PTB1 Combi Bead Breaker is suitable for use on single, two and three - piece 2-5-10 hole budd, 7.50 x 16s and all tubeless truck tyres and rims.

Both types of bead breakers are simple to operate without bolts, screws or attachments and are compatible for use with a range of Hi-Force 700 Bar rated hand and powered pumps.
With all the new and existing products offered in the new catalogue, it is by far the biggest and best offering from Hi-Force to date.
