    How to Remove Tank off Jobo Lift?

    Jobo manual says, hold the end of the tank, pull it up toward the front. But since most tanks/drums sit in the lower slot, the middle nipple blocks any movement of the tanks/drums. So how do you do it?

    Tip the tank bottom up.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Clarification if needed. By bottom he means the end furthest from the lift.
    All the 3000 tanks fit in the top hole.

    Quickly, and without hesitation.

    If they're the same as the ATL.

    Hold the end of the tank furthest from the lift (with rotation stopped!). Lift up until the cog detaches from the spring clip. Yes, it is loud. If you watch how the tank seats when you put it on, you will see how the process works.
    I feel, therefore I photograph.

    As I said, with the 15xx and 2xxx tanks in the lower slot, the middle nipple prevents you from lifting up the tank.

    I've just been to have a look at my Job CPE2 with lift, which I use with a 1500 tank. I haven't previously experienced the problem mentioned here, but I can see that there would be a problem if I tried to lift the tank UP. I lift the tank TOWARDS ME horizontally and then up once it's clear of the unit.

    Yes, this makes sense. I figure Jobo wants us to move the tank in something like 45 degree if you see from the side. So it is inside and upside, at an angle.

    The manual is badly written.....
