"The nature of my invention consists in providing a reservoir holding fluids sufficient, when forced into the cylinder of the jack, to push the ram out is entire length when it is in a horizontal position, which is not accomplished by the hydraulic jacks now in use and described in Fig. 1, in which the force-pump is in the center of the reservoir, and when the jack is in a horizontal position half the contents of the reservoir is below the center of the pump and cannot run into and supply it with water sufficient to more than one-third fill the cylinder..."
