Rugged swivel jack is a good choice for lighter boats up to 18'. Powder-coated finish withstands up to 300 hours of saltwater exposure. 6" thermoplastic caster wheel. Provides 23" lift and 10" of travel.
I purchased this swivel jack for one of my trailers and I could not be more pleased. It is easy to use and it raises and lowers with ease. Make sure, if you do purchase this, you also purchase the dock for the jack so your trailer doesn't move around.[@]
We both maintain a significant inventory of marine response equipment for a Government client as well as maintain and opperate our own equipment. The jack is much better than the one provided with a relatively good trailer.
The product is ideal for very small boats with with very little trailer tongue weight.I have a 19ft cuddy with a V6 I/O. I have attached a photo of the boat to show the size. The jack was not installed when this photo was taken though. The boat is a decent size but my tongue weight is less than 200lbs.I can pick up the front of my trailer with the boat on it with ease; im 5'7" 180lbs. Under the load of my boat this jack appears like it is about to snap any minute. Because the jack is made to swivel when its not used; the moving parts create a natural gap between the jack leg and the jack mount. When you apply a load to the gap it degrades the stability of the jack. You should have a good 90 degree angle from the ground up the jack leg; under load its more like 85 degrees and looks kinda scary. Im not sure what part of the jack is rated for 1000lbs but a <200 lb load should not strain this equipment like it is.I would recommend this for very small boats.I purchased it cause of the 1000lb rating
I bought one of these for my utility trailer. With 1800 lbs of gravel and cement in the trailer (about 550 lbs on the jack), the jack collapsed. The base plate and brackets folded like paper and the tounge slammed to the ground. As someone else said, I don't know what part of this thing is rated for 1000 lbs. They must mean total trailer weight.
