As long as you are buying a jack, a hydraulic jack trumps a screw jack any day. That's why every one will gladly lend you their old screw jack. I bought a thirty ton Hdp press and use the jack as needed for other purposes, go hdy and don't look back..LOL. BTW I have several screw jacks sitting in the corner of the garage as well collecting dust.

Yes but a hyd. jack may not hold over time, whereas a screw jack will hold forever.

I'm with Sflem here...screw jack is the weapon of choice...
Or a combo...lift with hydraulic, snug up the screw...

Even for things like barn repair? The one thing I like about screw jacks is they will not settle like a hyd jack. I can jack the barn a little each day until it gets high enough to raise the wall off the sill. With a hyd it would probably settle down overnight.

If you have a hydraulic jack that settles over time it is defective and most likely the pinch valve.
A good jack will hold its load over a long period of time---I have used hydraulic jacks many times on Pile load tests and have held up to 100 tons for more than a week.
