Jim Woodin, P.E.
Atlanta Division Rental Manager


With over 30 years of advising customers, Jim is uniquely qualified to provide contractors, engineers, and government agencies with the best methods and equipment for heavy lifting using hydraulic jacking equipment.
During Jim's 13 years with Beerman, he has successfully helped clients lift and move bridges, water tanks, vessels, and many other types of structures. Jim is an expert in pile load testing, weighing structures, calibrating and certifying jacks and load cells, and can insure that our clients will conform to their customers' requirements.
Our hydraulic jacking equipment inventory is unique in quantity and capacity. We have jacks that range from 5 Tons up through 1000 Tons with various extensions. Our capabilities include operating multiple jacks with either equal pressure or equal movement, depending on the tolerances on the plane of lift. As an option, we can calibrate your jacks and load cells up to 500 Tons in accordance with ASTM 1143 requirements. If requested, I can provide technical site assistance to help make the jacking portion of the job go more smoothly and safely.
