First of all clean the jacks very thoroughly. If they are really dirty, tap gently with a hammer to release sand and dirt, hose thoroughly, repeat. Lubricate every part of the jack with lots of wd40. Check that the part of the jack that extends down has been fully released and pushed up into the upper portion of the jack. Then grasp the jack with both hands and tug it down. While the jack is pulled down, swing it up under the trailer until it clicks into place.

OSHA is the United states department of labor Occupational safety and health administration. They have to inspect your wire hoist every year to make sure that you and your employees are safe when they are using the wire hoists in your facility.

Wire hoists are as strong and in some cases can be stronger even than chain hoists being able to lift between 1/2 up to 80 tons.

There are a lot of automatic chain hoists and you will find that they work much faster and with less effort than manual ones.

Needing a permit to build a buck hoist depends on where you are building it. Only a few states in the US require you to get a permit and the elevator to be inspected. Indiana, Michigan, Arkansas, Washington, Nevada, North Carolina, California all require you to get a permit.

Depending on the hoist that you are renting the capacity ranges from 4000 lbs. to 8000 lbs. Before you start loading up your hoist make sure to check the capacity of the one you're renting.

"A jack lift is a mechanical device used as a lifting device to lift heavy loads or apply great forces. Jacks employ a screw thread or hydraulic cylinder to apply very high linear forces.
A mechanical jack is a device which lifts heavy equipment. The most common form is a car jack, floor jack or garage jack which lifts vehicles so that maintenance can be performed.
More powerful jacks use hydraulic power to provide more lift over greater distances. Mechanical jacks are usually rated for a maximum lifting capacity (for example, 1.5 tons or 3 tons)." (Wikipedia)

As the name suggests, for manual pallet jacks you walk behind the forks and pump the handle to raise them/lower them. On powered, or electric, pallet jacks, there is a throttle for moving and a lever for raising/lowering the forks. On some powered pallet jacks, there is a platform for the operator to stand on

First of all, the forks are not supposed to go all the way down to the floor, that would defeat the purpose because they would drag and you wouldn't be able to pick up a pallet. But if you think the forks should be able to go down further, just stand on the forks while pulling the lowering lever. You may need to grease the machine

Do you see a hole for the plug? It's leaking some oil?

I would recommend lubricating the entire system every couple months. Also OSHA has to inspect it every year
