Safety recall for Torin Hydraulic Trolley Jack

Hydraulic Trolley Jack doesn’t meet Aussie standards

Torin trolley jack

If you have a Torin Industries Hydraulic Trolley Jack in your garage or workshop you need to check whether it is fitted with a rubber head cap.

The recall affects the Torin Hydraulic Trolley Jack sold in New South Wales and Western Australia between the 18th of August 2017 and the 31st of December 2017 through Auto One stores.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is overseeing the action – find the official recall notice here.

Carrying the barcode number 9333631008093, the ACCC advises that the hydraulic trolley jack is supplied with a rubber head cap, which makes it non-compliant with the mandatory standard ‘Consumer Goods (Trolley Jacks) Safety Standard 2017’.

What are the hazards?

The jack has not been tested with the rubber head cap attached and therefore no longer meets the mandatory standard.

The ACCC advises that consumers should remove the rubber head cap from the jack before use.

  1. Have a look at this link - eBay sellers continue to offer non compliant jacks that MUST comply with mandatory Australian stds
    https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_odkw=jtrolley&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xtrolley+jack.TRS0&_nkw=trolley+jack&_sacat=0

    The jacks that are noted as 3 Ton are ‘exempt’ though they would most likely fail the ASNZS2615 std as 2500kg WLL.
    here is link to ACCC https://www.productsafety.gov.au/standards/trolley-jacks
    FYI - there are on line selling baby seats that would NEVER Pass any std.

    It seems that the bricks and motor retailers are the only ones that are being policed. Can’t understand why there are not dozens of other recalls for non compliant jacks sold on eBay
