How to Determine the Lift Capacity You Need in a Jack

A trailer jack is designed to lift the tongue of your trailer so you can connect the trailer coupler to your hitch ball. To do this, you'll need a jack with a lift capacity high enough to handle your trailer's tongue weight.


Tongue weight is the amount of weight that your trailer applies to the back of your tow vehicle. Typically, your tongue weight should be 10-15% of your total trailer weight (trailer + cargo). In other words, a 10,000-lb trailer would have a tongue weight between 1,000 lbs and 1,500 lbs. For a trailer this size, you would need a jack with a lift capacity of at least 1,500 lbs.


It's okay to have a jack with a weight rating that is higher than your trailer's tongue weight. In fact, a jack with a higher lift capacity should operate more efficiently, allowing you to spend less time cranking and more time camping.


Trailer and Camper Jack Lift

Every jack offers a certain amount of lift or travel. Screw travel is the distance the jack extends when you crank it (or toggle it to "extend" on an electric model). Some jacks include a drop leg for extra adjustability. On these jacks, you'll see the maximum extension of the drop leg listed in the specs as well. Adding the screw travel and drop leg travel together will give you the total lift. The total lift listed above can help you determine how high this jack will be able to raise your trailer.

Moving my 27 foot boat trailer had become nearly impossible. It is on grass and dirt squeezed between the house and a fence. The ratcheting trailer jack grips about 98% of the surfaces I have reducing my extreme efforts to almost nothing. Little effort is required to move the empty trailer but the lever only moves the trailer a few inches for each thrust. I'll take slow over pain anytime. My extreme struggles without the ratcheting jack were no faster anyway.

With the 4000 boat on the tandem trailer, the ratchet worked very well too. I was looking for something to act as a lever. This thing is perfect.



by:

There is a learning curve associated with the jack. Once you figure it out the jack will perform well. To be able to fine adjust trailer during trailer hook up is nice.



by:

I don't even have the trailer yet.

I haul double trailers and thought this would help when hooking up the second one by myself when I was just a tiny bit off well... The handle attaches using a magnet if you forget it the magnet is not strong enough to prevent it from wiggling loose I do not actually know this but it sure looks like a problem. Because the handle is not attached to the crank, nothing prevents vibration from allowing the wheel to creep down and allow the wheel to hit the road and destroy the unit. This I do know for a fact happens so if you want a good handle because you lost yours You can have mine as it is the only part I have that still works as mine was destroyed in the above scenario. In addition you are supposed to be able to use the other handle to rotate and ratchet the wheel so you can then ratchet the wheels in the direction you desire, good idea but bad engineering. When you attempt to turn the wheels (change direction, not roll the wheel) the flimsy piece of metal used down very close by the wheel just bends like rubber because it is too thin for the job (see 3:26 in the second video for the flimsy part I am talking about). If this was attempted on anything except a paved or solid surface it would not rotate or move at all and you can see where in the second video it is a boat on a concrete floor and minimal movement displayed

I contacted the manufacturer and they said that the vibrations on the road should not cause the trailer jack to move from the stow position to deploy because the spring tension is too high to allow this. A possibility is that it was not locked into the stow position properly causing it to fall into deploy. It is recommended to give it a tug to ensure that it is properly locked.



by:

I admit this thing is overkill for my 16" enclosed trailer, but I am glad I bought it. It is stout and very well made. I moved to a mountainous area with lots of slopes and narrow roads. This allowed me do detach my trailer and move it to where I wanted it parked as I could not get the truck in there with the trailer attached. The jack moved the trailer when loaded almost as seamlessly as it did when it was unloaded. It is a good investment if you need to move a trailer into tight or specific spaces while unhitched.



by:

Shipping times were excellent. Box was almost destroyed but the unit is 10X heavier than I thought, so that is probably the culprit. Need sturdier boxes to ship items that heavy.

Installation instructions are weak. I took my old broken jack off and put this one in same spot, on port side of trailer. Turns out this thing has a F and R (which are backwards in my opinion, but that's immaterial) and it needs to go on right side to make that jack handle work. At least I think that's right. The instructions didn't say.

It is unbelievably sturdy. I wore myself out putting it on, but I tried the ratchet function a few inches and it seems to be what I need. Getting too old to pull/push this boat into the slot in garage. This should help a lot.

I do think it's a bit big for my boat. I am not sure I can get it down low enough. However, the nice part is that it has about 4-5 manual settings for up/down, so I think I can find the right spot.

I'll need to use it to hook up and unhook a few times to have a true feeling for it. But I think it's the answer.

The forward and reverse are the directional way to point the nose of the trailer. It talks about this at the 4 minute mark on the attached video:

This jack is military tough. What a machine. Works well. Great features. While the other jacks appear flimsy and ready to snap, this one is tough.

Only issue is that the wheel trolly gizmo won't stay up when rolling trailer around in neutral key position. I can have a tendency of jamming into the ground and messing the gizmo up...hasn't happened yet, using small bungee.



by:

If your trying to move a camper or trailer through tight RV gate this product makes it incredible easy with just one person. The ratchet makes moving your trailer up an incline worry free. The quality of the product is great, this is the most extreme tongue jack I have ever seen. Can’t say enough good things about it.



by:

I haven’t had to use it yet, it will be a life saver if I get on a road that is to narrow to turn around, you could un hook trailer then turn truck and trailer separately then hook together again. That is what I had in mind when I purchased it. Thanks



by:

Heavy duty and works for tall trailers. I have an over landing trailer that I need lifted on to a higher clearance vehicle. This is by far the easiest and best one for this scenario. Very easy to use.

Dual wheels roll easily, even on a gravelly surface. Wide range of lift heights adjusts to various terrains. Download the installation instructions to sort out the metric manufacturing dimensions versus inch measurements of your trailer frame. Worked great on the 2.5" wide, 4" high frame of my US made, bolt together, aluminum frame trailer kit. Worth every penny.



by:

this is my 2nd XO jack that has failed on me. The 2 pins that prevent the jack from rotating have small spot welds that broke. This failure would allow the jack to collapse. Why they do not have proper full welds is unclear to me given the cost of this product. They offered to RMA it but at my expense to ship back to them which was far more expensive than having a local welder fix it.



by:

I now own 3 of these in different sizes. I started with a 500 series on my utility trailer but needed something a little beefier to hold up under weight in the trailer when I drag it through the lawn, which is why I got the 750. I had a 350 on my 16' boat trailer but now swapped it out with a 500 that was on my utility trailer. All are made tough, well designed and can take punishment. I wouldn't go with anything different at this point. Show me a trailer jack that's better than this!



by:

Jack works exactly as advertised and perfect fit for my unique application. Etrailer chat service was instrumental in this successful purchase. Etrailer installation video also very useful.



by:

Ok, I should have bought this a long time ago. On a recent trip to Baja we got stock and needed to move the Trailer. No way in the sand with that other wheel. It was also impossible for my partner to stow.

This thing is awesome, solid mount, ball bearings in the double wheels, easy to position and stow. Two minor complaints, the handle is magnetic and does not attach solidly, so a possible losable item on a trip. also the bearings are not sealed in any way so I am a bit worried about dirt getting in. So we will see how this holds up long term but so far it was definitely worth spending the extra money. After all, you really do get what you pay for with some of this cheap stuff.



by:

Just what I was looking for. A great heavy duty jack with wheels that roll and swivel like butter. My dual Sea-Doo trailer is heavy with both big skis on it. The Xtreme jack with dual ball bearing wheels and slick swiveling caster are what I purchased the unit for. They make it a whole lot easier pushing the trailer in and out of the shop. Remember, you get what you pay for. This trailer jack will not disappoint.



by:

This trailer jack is truly "extreme". I was looking for an over-built one that I could count on to take some abuse. This one is perfect. The pins have extra strong springs. The back plate is extra thick. Even though I didn't need to use them, the bolts and brackets it came with are extra beefy. The wheels are extra strong. Basically everything about this jack is completely [awesome]!

My favorite feature is the removable magnetic crank handle. It clicks into place with authority and stows in my tongue box. Also, it looks great too. I'd buy this again in a heartbeat...only thing I'd do different is get it sooner. I put up with the wimpy OEM trailer jack far too long.



by:

Success. I wanted to replace a flimsy trailer jack on my off road trailer and was excited to see the reviews of this jack. I was looking for strength and toughness first and foremost and boy does this deliver! The pictures and videos don't do it justice. Until you see this in person and give it a heft - it's burly! I went for the tube mount version as I was hoping it would work with my existing tube. That wasn't the case as the pin and holes are larger than what I had. Fortunately, the mounting plate saved the day and I was able to position it further down my tongue and still have clearance to swing it up. Well done ARK for having the tube mount be reversible so there is a high/low position depending on what works for your setup. Great piece of kit!

One year after my purchase of an Ark hitch jack for my overland camper Ii am happy to report that everything is performing perfectly.



by:

I installed my Ark750 on my small off-road camper trailer about a year ago. I was needing a trailer jack that did more than just help me more my trailer around my garage and on easy flat terrain. Found myself is a situation where heavy truck sunk in some soft/wet soil. Disconnected my trailer, got my truck out and was able to winch out my trailer with my truck with the trailer jack down. There is no way my stock trailer jack could have handled this job!



by:

I have a fifth wheel that also pulls the boat. This ratcheting Jack allows me to get the boat right up to the fifth wheel hitch with little effort. This jack has good traction on pavement but struggles a bit in grass. Still so worth it!
