Here's that high pressure hydraulic pump and jack setup that I was talking about

This is a high pressure pump and an assemblage of cylinders that I put
together. I had this stuff for a while, in a box, but since I knew I
might need it this week. I put it together.
It saved our ass today, as the machine that I tried to lift today was
not only too heavy to lift (70,000 lbs), but also GLUED to the floor
with epoxy. (!!!)

The pump is air powered?

Nice little setup. Cute mini-rams.
The white shop floor is a great idea. I painted mine white 14 years ago and have loved it. Dropped parts are much easier to find and the shop is a lot brighter as a result. After I get mine cleared out, it's time to repaint it.

Standard AOH, just like the little HF jack in the red box, right?

It is not like a jack, exactly, but the same principle. I think that pneumatics drive a membrane, which drives the hydraulic piston. Overall it looks very old fashioned and very industrial quality.

Was it a house mover's kit, or originally designed for machinery leveling, etc? I see that you have two other mini-rams, too.

I used floor paint rather than epoxy, at 1/3 to 1/2 the price. It has lasted quite well. It added a minimum of 25% light (when there was floor to reflect it), which amazed and pleased me. But finding tiny metal springs and clips (Jesus Clips, as in "Jesus, where'd that little thing go?") is made exponentially easier. Metal blends in too well with gray crete floors.
