Hydraulic Self-levelling systems
At the press of a button Goldschmitt Self-levelling automatically puts your vehicle on a completely level plane without any fuss. It is the only system available today that has a built in safety mechanisms that lock the legs in place making the system safe so you can work underneath the vehicle whilst it is up in the air. During the winter or at times when the vehicle is storage it can be left lifted taking the weight off you tyres and suspension. As an added security measure Goldschmitt levelling allows you to PIN protect the retraction of the levelling jacks.
Manual over-ride allows the operator to lift either side or either end of the vehicle simply by holding down a single button, great for changing punctured tyres or draining a waste tank.

Movable support plates: Can be used in all positions.
Goldschmitt offer movable support plates for their lifting support systems. These adapt optimally to the ground – even if this should not be straight. In the standard version, the plates are delivered with a diameter of 230mm. Optionally, smaller versions with 160 mm diameter are available.
Central hydraulic unit: Sometimes less is more.
In the early nineties Goldschmitt brought out the first hydraulic jacks on the market. The first systems used four external hydraulic pumps, they were later replaced by a central, powerful hydraulic unit due to their susceptibility to failure. Even today, Goldschmitt’s high-quality hydraulic systems rely on the high reliability of a central pump unit that drives the oil circuit in the hydraulic system. Thus, the hydraulic power pack (12/24 V – 600 Watt) is the heart of the Goldschmitt system. This has the advantage that all the components such as motor, relay, tank and pump are needed only once. This saves weight, installation space, assembly and service time. In addition, possible sources of interference are then reduced to a minimum. The pump unit of the Pro series works with an oil pressure of up to 180 bar. Depending on the vehicle, different tank volumes of up to 6 liters are available. The fact that the Pro series is one of the lightest support systems on the leisure market this is due to the weight-optimized pump unit, which in the standard version weighs just 8 kg. This weight reduction is achieved by innovative valve technology, which is not located on the hydraulic power unit but on the head of each lifting support in the Pro variant. Thanks to this unique technology and the compact design, the weight of the valves could be significantly reduced compared to normal valves integrated in the pump block.
Tear-proof hose connections: Innovative technology with great effect.
Conventional jacks usually have two hose connections through which the hydraulic oil can flow in or out: one at the top and one at the bottom. If the hydraulic fluid flows through the upper hose connection into the interior of the cylinder, the piston is moved downwards, the oil flows through the lower connection and the piston rod moves upwards. This is the normal principle of a double acting differential cylinder. Goldschmitt are breaking new ground in their Pro series jacks which can guarantee even greater reliability. The piston rod of each Pro jack is hollow drilled. In addition to an enormous weight saving, the cavity serves as an oil channel. Thus, the hydraulic oil that pushes the piston up, also introduced at the head of the lifting support and passed through the interior of the piston rod down. Thanks to this technology, they can dispense with lower hose connections and ensure a tear-proof cable routing without external hoses. Hose damage caused by branches and flying stones can be avoided.
Protected installed hydraulic unit: No chance for rain and dirt.
Would you expose lawn mowers, garden furniture and barbecue to the weather if you had the opportunity to stow them undercover? You’re probably wondering what this topic has to do with lift support systems. More than you might think at first. There are various lifting support systems on the market whose pump unit is installed on the chassis. The Pro Series lift-assist system has a central hydraulic power pack that is placed inside the motor home body or in a free storage compartment. This means the hydraulic pump of the Pro-Series is protected against environmental influences such as moisture, Road salt and dirt. This helps to avoid mechanical damage and prevents premature aging of the pump unit.
Exemplary safety concept: One safety valve for every lifting support.
On the Goldschmitt system the hydraulic valves are located on the head area of each hydraulic cylinder, this is a far safer place to locate this component. An integrated safety valve on the head of each cylinder provides a permanently stable oil pressure in the hydraulic cylinders, thus preventing a sudden slumping of the supported vehicle. Leaks in the system as well as oil loss through defect or sabotage will not cause the cylinders to lose pressure. Through the integrated security or Check Valve, each single stroke cylinder of the Pro Series is protected against pressure drop. Lifting support systems by other manufacturers usually do not include this due to cost reasons – unfortunately at the expense of safety. In contrast to commercially used systems, there are no regulations regarding the use of lifting supports in the leisure sector in terms of protection against leaks in the piping system. Commercial lifting systems, on the other hand, are subject to the strictest regulations. They must be designed so that the extended piston can never be moved unintentionally. This means that the system must be immune to burst or leaking hoses. This means the Pro series can not only be used in recreational vehicles but also in commercial vehicles.
Highest reliability: Hand pump as standard.
In the unlikely event that hydraulic pump ceases to operate due to loss of power or mechanical failure it is possible to operate the system manually. The Pro lifting system is fitted as standard with a hand pump on the hydraulic power unit. This allows the extended jacks to reliably retract with simple hand movements. .
System with EMC test: Immune to electromagnetic interference.
Goldschmitt Pro Series Stroke Support Systems are tested for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). The EMC test ensures that the functioning of a technical device is not disturbed or influenced by other devices with unwanted electrical or electronic effects. At the same time, it is ensured that the tested object also does not cause any interference with electromagnetic interference. In other words, the Pro Series Goldschmitt Motorhome levelling system is not susceptible to external electrical and electromagnetic interference, and it does not actively affect any other devices electromagnetically. Thus, we can guarantee the smooth operation of the system in any environment.
Innovative hardware sets new standards
The weight of the Goldschmitt Pro Series has been significantly reduced compared to other hydraulic systems. The weight savings is made possible for example by hollow-drilled piston rods and a weight-optimised pump unit. Depending on the vehicle type, different support variants and lengths are available, which can be easily combined with each other. Large movable support plates – depending on the lift support variant – provide for a stable as well as flexible stand. Goldschmitt relies on four hydraulic cylinders with a central pump unit in its lifting support systems, which ensures the necessary oil supply in the hydraulic system. Thus, the system can safely and reliably level both small and large motorhomes and commercial vehicles. A hand pump for emergency operation is also standard on the hydraulic unit. The temperature range of the Goldschmitt Pro series is -30 ° C to +80 ° C.
Safety is important to Goldschmitt
When it comes to the functions of a hydraulic lifting system, the operational differences in the can be rather small but. But when it comes to the safety of people and materials, Goldschmitt are proud to be able to offer you a first-class leveling system with the Pro series. This is not only due to the enormous carrying capacity of the Pro lifting supports of up to 4.5 tonnes per cylinder. Rather, the reliability of this system can be traced back to some very innovative safety technology that is unique in the leisure industry. Hollow-drilled piston rods not only provide for an enormous weight savings. The cavity also serves to supply oil. As a result, unlike other hydraulic systems, the oil connections are located only at the top of the cylinder head, so tear-proof cable routing is guaranteed. A double-sealed piston guide on the lifting cylinder prevents the escape of hydraulic oil. High-quality sensors contribute to further system safety, and recognize the position of the individual lifting cylinders at all times. If, for example, the engine of your still supported vehicle is started, the jacks are automatically retracted immediately. An acoustic signal will also alert you to the extended jacks. A special hose rupture protection on each individual lifting support prevents sagging of the supported vehicle. As a result, the Pro Series jacks are safe and approved for tire replacement. If, contrary to expectations, the on-board electronics of your vehicle fail, the individual lifting supports can be manually retracted thanks to the standard manual pump.
