How Maxi Jax Works

MaxiJax slew bearing maintenance system

Maxi Jax is a Hydraulic Lifting System for Raising Excavator Super Structures for Fast & Easy Slew Bearing Replacement

The owner, founder and inventor of Maxi Jax, Mr Mark Prentice, has worked in the mining industry for over 25 years and in many countries including Indonesia, Africa, Germany and Mongolia. During this time, Mr. Prentice has consistently demonstrated an ability to provide successful and comprehensive slew bearing replacement repair and maintenance services to large mining companies.

During his time working for major mining companies such as Rio Tinto, Terex Corporation and Freeport McMoran, Mark saw first hand the major delays and massive cost over-runs involved in slew bearing replacement. Mark has invented his patent pending Maxi Jax lifting system to overcome these problems.
