Smooth, Low-Friction Operation

Typical jack screw systems feature direct contact between the surfaces of the screw and the threaded nut. This constant contact produces a good deal of friction, which not only increases the amount of power necessary to operate the jack but also creates heat within the system. Heat leads to increased wear on the threads, and this wear can ultimately lead to failure.


Husky Brute Ball Bearing Jack Screw System

The Brute is built with ball bearings that roll smoothly along the threads of the screw shaft and the nut, thereby eliminating direct surface-to-surface contact. This produces far less friction along the threads, leading to a reduction in heat and wear, as well as noise. In addition, because much of the friction is eliminated, less power is needed to operate the Brute. This electric jack pulls 30 percent less amperage than jacks with traditional screw systems. The overall result is a jack that can be raised and lowered faster, smoother and more efficiently.


SmartStop Automatic Stop

When a typical trailer jack is extended beyond the recommended height, the threaded nut that creates the up-and-down movement will hit a built-in stop at the top of the shaft - and hit it hard. If you leave the motor running, the nut will continue to apply pressure to this stop as it attempts to rise higher. The result is extreme stress on the gears and on the jack as a whole.


The Husky Brute has an integrated safety feature to combat this problem. The SmartStop timing system ensures that the jack motor shuts off before the nut can hit the built-in stop. No hard mechanical stops. No undue stress on the screw system. And most importantly, no damage to your powered jack.

    Video Transcript for Husky Trailer Jack HT87247 Review

    Today we're going to review Part Number HT87247. This is the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack. It has a dropleg design and is designed for A-frame trailers, has an 18-inch lift, and a 4500-pound weight capacity. This electric jack with the power drive will let you lift and lower your trailer quickly and easily. It does use a low-friction ball screw, which will minimize resistance, helps reduce wear, noise, and heat, and the difference compared to your regular typical screw system, it uses ball bearings, which will roll smoothly through the threads so there's no direct friction-inducing contact. That means there's 30% less power draw than the typical screw systems.

    It does have a SmartStop, which is an automatic stop to prevent damage caused by hard stops and excessive pressure. Basically what happens is the motor will shut down before the nut reaches the end of the shaft. What that means is, I'm going to show you once Ihook it up a little bit later here, when you push the toggle switch and you retract it, and you get to the point where it can't go any further, even though your finger is on this switch, it'll stop because of that SmartStop design. If you also notice it has the 3 LEDs. There's one in front, which helps in nighttime hookups to the trailer. It also has one on each side.

    The reason they're on the sides is it'll help as far as if you're going to hook up or disconnect your weight distribution system at night also. The very back of the jack, if you'll notice, has a trailer connector storage bracket. This'll guard your trailer wiring from the elements. You can just hang it right up in there to protect it. It does have the drop leg.

    The drop leg does have a foot plate which has a diameter of 5 1/2 inches. The drop plate actually can be adjustable up to 6 inches. In other words, if you just pull this clip off, and we turn it here, we'll pull this pin out, you can see that you can adjust the range of the drop leg; about 6 inches is the total amount you can adjust it. Once you get it in the spot, I'mjust going to put it on the lowest one right now, you put the pin and clip back in, you're ready to go. On the inside of this jackit uses stainless steel gears and stainless steel fasteners, which offer maximum durability. This outside is a very sturdy cover.

    The switches are a weatherproof switch which will prevent water-related damage to the motor. It does have a nice silver powder-coat finish to help resist corrosion. As you can see, it's a bolt-on installation for A-frame trailers, and it has the 3 holesat the dimensions that are the industry standard for your A-frame trailers. This jack does come with the parts shown here. It comes with this manual override crank that allows you to operate this when you lose power or just need to manually retract it or extend it. You do have to use . It has this brake release lever. I'll show you how that works. It also comes with this 30-amp circuit breaker. Basically, if you'll notice, it has this 6-foot length of 10-gauge power wire. When you install this, you will actually ground when you mount it to your trailer. It'll ground through the trailer itself, so you just have the one power wire. What you would do is you would put this circuit breaker in line when you connect it. One end would go to this wire, the other end to your power source. That way you have a 30-amp circuit breaker. If you overload, to protect this jack, it'll overload, pop that circuit breaker, then once you fix your problem, you can just push that button on top and that'll reset it. I do want to show you the override. In other words, the situation where you lose power or don't have access to power and you've got to manually operate this jack. What you'll want to do is at the very top here, if I can turn it toward you, there's a black rubber plug. You just pull that plug right out. There's an opening there. You'll take this manual crank in the socket end. You just fit that in there. Once you feel around you'll feel it fit right on just like a socket. You have a crank here, but before you can crank it, what you'll need to do is release the brake. The way you do that is you pull this plug off right here on the side. You'll take this little lever, this is the brake release lever; it has this open slot to it. You'll see the lever in there. Just put that inaudible 0:04:22 Inthere and then push it forward and that'll release your brake. That will allow you to crank this to retract it or extend it manually without any power.Put the plugs back in here. Do need to work the plugs a little bit, because they do seal completely. There we go. We'll take the crank out. See if Ican get this plug back in here. It's a tight seal, so sometimes it takes a little working. Yep,there we go. That'll work for now. Okay. We do want to give you a few measurements on this. I am going to hook this up. I have a 12-volt power source here to show you how this'll operate, but I do want to give you some measurements first. I have the jack fully retracted, the footplate all the way at the bottom retracted, so your bracket height is going to be 8 1/2 inches retracted. If you would fully extend this jack out and leave the footplate as it is, retracted, it would give you a total extended height of 26 1/2 inches. The lift on this is 18 inches. If you do use the drop leg adjustment of 6 inches more, that gives you a total of 24 inches total travel; the 18-inch lip, the 6-inch drop leg. If you ended up extending the jack all the way and the drop leg all the way, that would give you a total extension of about 32 1/2 inches. The lift capacity on this jack is 4500 pounds. The tube right here is 2 1/4 inches. This is a 12-volt jack. It does estimate about 10 inches of travel in 38 seconds. It does come with a 1-year warranty. What I want to do is I want to show you, I just want to hook it up to this power source. Ihave a 12-volt power source. There's 12-volt power, but needs to be grounded. Since we don't have this mounted and this paint might not give a good ground, what I'm going to do is ground it to the footplate. I'm going to show you, you can see the lights come on. There's your front light. There's the light on each side; on and off. To operate the jack is this toggle switch right next to the light switch. If we pull up on it, you can see it extending it out. If you let go, it's a toggle switch so it'll stop automatically. If you push it down, you can see it's retracting and you'll notice the SmartStop design right there. Let me show you. I still have my finger on it. Watch, it'll hit andyour finger's still on it, it'll automatically stop it. Very nice feature to protect your jack. That should do it for the review on Part Number HT87247, the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack Drop Leg Design for the A-frame trailers. .

    I had just purchased a new trailer and because of the size and extreme tongue weight, it required a *weight distribution system* type hitch. In order to put this type of hitch on, it requires that you first connect the trailer to the hitch, then lift the trailer AND your tow vehicle at the same time. Then you install the weight distribution system, then lower it back down, retracting the stand 100%. My trailer came with a hand crank style for lowering and raising the trailer. Can you imagine doing this by hand? I did my homework and found the Husky-4500 to be the perfect fit for my trailers weight (3700lbs)…I have attached the YouTube link describing this product in greater detail and how it works. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zl3T8fAnetY Again I did my research and found the very best price for this item at *etrailer.com*. I ordered this product on Tuesday 9-22-15. I received an email from George at etrailer that my order had been processed and shipped on the same day!!! On Friday the 25th, I received my product in the early afternoon!!! The packaging was excellent, insuring the product arrived without damage. The instructions were clear and very easy to follow. Installation took just about an hr and it worked every bit as advertised. The adjustable leg allows me to level the trailer now on the driveway as the Brute-4500 has a longer stand travel than the stock crappy one. *NOTE*- my trailer did not have nuts on the bolts securing the hand crank to the trailer…the holes are “threaded” so the bolts do not require nuts. I elected to put locking nuts on the bottom of the 3 bolts, just for added peace of mind. If you’re lifting a large trailer, you may want to do the same. I would recommend this product to anyone that has a trailer that requires a weight distribution system hitch, or anyone who just doesn’t want hand crank the trailer on and off the tow vehicle. Added bonus-the unit has covered device that holds your trailer plug, up and out of the way when not towing, keeping it free from water and dirt. 227891

    I just installed this jack on our 2014 I-Go just before our latest trip, and it performed great. I was actually hesitant to get an electric jack given the exercise that the manual jack provides, but with the multiple jacking cycles required to hitch and unhitch with our weight-distributing system (plus a forecast for the upper 90's!), I did some research and settled on this particular model. One thing that led me to choose this jack was the simple foot that can be quickly and easily positioned for jacking or stowage. On a recent trip, our campsite was below the campground road, and I almost had the manual jack in the fully retracted position to get the trailer leveled when it was parked where required. Some of the jacks that have the self-folding foot couldn't have readily accommodated this particular situation, so I chose this model in the rare event that I am ever forced to use the jack without the foot in place. Even with some extra effort to route and shroud the single +12 VDC power lead for reliability, it was really easy to install and I was finished in less than two hours even though I was working in the sun on a really hot driveway. My wife originally thought that this was a bit of a "luxury" item, but after she saw how fast it allowed me to unhitch and later re-hitch the trailer, she's now almost as big a fan of it as I am! 211176


    Comments

    Id definitely recommend this unit to anyone whos considering the purchase of a powered hitch jack. It has worked flawlessly since I installed it over a year ago, and I continue to be amazed at how it simplifies and speeds up the process of hitching and unhitching the trailer, as well as fine tuning the final level of the trailer in concert with the corner jacks. Even when the terrain is very uneven and the load leveling hitch has to be raised much more than normal to get the bars into place, this jack doesnt seem strained regardless of how high I have to lift the rear end of the hitched Grand Cherokee!

    item arrive on date as stated, this is not the norm!!!! all parts and instruction were included, nothing missing. The operation of jack if flawless!!! I save $100 over other jacks at other web sites that do not have the lift capacity of this one. I just bought a new toyhauler and etrailer will be my place to shop for accessories. I will definitely recommend etrailer to all my friends. Thank you. 109459

    Hello- I am EXTREMELY pleased with my purchase and etrailer. Tried to write the review on the attached form but it would not go thru. Was a but nervous about the install initially but it went VERY smoothly and quickly! I simply attached a wring clip to the one attaching wire and used some shrink tubing. I do not have a heat gun so a simple match lighter was all I used to shrink the tubing at the ring clip and and the supplied in-line fuse. Simple, fast, neat! VERY pleased with the appearance, one of the nicest looking jacks in my opinion. Motor fast and quiet! I did remove the attached trailer plug storage holder and relocated it on my LP gas tank cover, LOVE that feature too! I am so happy I made this purchase- Packaging was great and shipping quite fast too!!! Thank You ! 76739

    There is a white cap on the top lof the unit where the hand crank would go if needed. what is the white cap and what happened to the black one that is shown on the product in advertisementm??

    The smaller black cap, closest to the LP cylinder covers, is where the manual crank would go. The white item, is actually a bubble level (not included) that the customer added to the jack. See part # HM09815

    Unit arrived well-packed and in excellent condition. The mechanical installation was a breeze, the most difficult part was using the old mechanical hand-crank to jack up the front of the trailer! About 15 minutes later, I had the new jack installed and connected to a temporary battery for testing. It worked like a champ on my two-horse trailer + dressing room, and the mechanical override is easy to use - easier than to old jack it replaced! The real bear was wiring it into the existing 7-wire connector, but that's not Husky's fault, unfortunately the trailer manufacturer didn't follow the standard color code so it was a bit of trial and error before I got the right connection. But once hooked up it works great, and easily allowed my wife and daughter to attach the WD bars quickly. All in all a great product. 124236


    Comments

    Still running strong, my wife and daughter have had many opportunities to use it and they love how simple it makes it to connect the weight-distributing bars. Seems to be holding up well.

    Nice compact unit for the weight rating. Nice features, 3 lights, trailer plug storage, adjustable foot and most importantly a limit switch for both up and down limits. It would be a nice feature if the mounting holes were drilled so that the jack could be mounted straight ahead (as drilled) with additional holes that would allow the jack to be positioned 90 degrees, either left or right (this to allow a tailgate to open fully). 87621


    Comments

    After more than a year the electric jack exceeds my expectations. I turned the jack 90 deg. which enabled the tailgate of my pickup to clear when trailer is hitched. This gives much easier ingress to the pickup bed. Jack is strong and the limit switches work which eliminates screw and worm drive damage on lesser jacks.Im a happy camper.

    Can't go with 5 stars yet because I haven't used it to hitch up yet but I expect zero problems as the test out went as advertised. Easy to install and wire up (although I needed to buy a 3/8" ring connector to connect breaker switch to the battery--took 3 minutes:)). I had to remove the trailer power plug holder and taped up the backplate with Gorilla tape but plan to attach it elsewhere when the right location comes to me. Man, I wish I would have done this long before this. And I got the jack in 3 days, not 5-7 and received three emails along the way letting me know that it had shipped "special" and not "normal" ground and that they knew I had received it and hoped I would be happy with the product. I hope that kind of service and attention to the customer is the "new normal" because it hasn't been around for 30 years, my opinion. Hopefully the pics came out ok. Thanks for a great product and equally great customer service! 114361

    The installation took only an hour. It would have been shorter but I chose to clean up existing wiring. The jack worked as soon as the wiring was complete. It is very quiet and quick and is much better than my old electric Jack. Make sure to have the proper wiring connectors before you start as they are not included in the kit and some shrink tubing can finish your job to keep out moisture . 114153

    Its been great. The jack is quick, quiet and has plenty of power to lift and lower my trailer. A great product.

    After installing and wiring up this lift I realized I could not close the rear hatch on my tow vehicle. On top of that the base collar does not allow me to rotate the head of the lift away from the travel of the door to get the hatch closed or open. I tried rotating the jack around but could only find bolt hole openings for 2 bolts instead of the 3 I needed for strength. They should have machined out wider slots to allow more rotation of the base collar over the nut plates to find the bolt holes. I believe they forgot about this problem when they engineered the jack which, by the way, is very impressive and well made. After I figure a way around my problem I am certain I will enjoy this jack as I reviewed many and made it my first choice 433447

    The jack was received quickly without damage and all parts were included. Installation was easy. We already had a battery installed on the trailer for the winch so the jack motor hot wire(w/fuse) was connected to the + battery terminal. To ground the jack motor we had to use a ground wire from the ground battery terminal to the aluminum trailer. I have used the jack to connect the trailer to the tow car and to lift the tow car and trailer w/ race car for correct ramp angle. The jack works very well! 134902

    The jack has worked well. The issue is every once and awhile it will make a grinding noise on lifting.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. Since this jack uses the roller friction design it does not require regular lubrication of the jack screw. However, it is recommend to extend the jack fully and clean the inner jack tube, then coat with a light grease or silicone spray once a year. This information is represented in the installation instructions in the maintenance section.

    Jack was delivered quickly and arrived with no damage. The only problem that arose was the holes in the jack plate did not match anything on the trailer (A Big Tex utility trailer) and I had to drill new holes to bolt it down. It took about 45 minutes to mount due to drilling the holes and running a ground wire from the plug on the truck so that the truck does not have to be hooked to the trailer to power it on or have lights. 183897

    I ordered this electric trailer jack Sept 1 and it was delivered Sept 4. Today is Sept 5 and it is already installed. It was easy to install and although I have not had an opportunity to use it on a trip with our new trailer it appears to be a quality piece of equipment. This is what I call excellent customer service. Only four days from ordering to delivery and it was free delivery. So far all the products I have ordered from etrailer have been top notch. 98657

    Purchased the 4500 unit. Installed in about 1 hour. Fast shipping and unit works great. We have the load leveling system and this should make setup fast and smooth! Note: My LP tanks sit very close to the back of unit. I called the factory and they said just take the five screw out of the back where the electric out can be placed and it comes right off and still water tight. Remounted the electric holder on the side of shaft with zip ties. Awesome! 139265

    The only thing that impressed me more than the quality of the Husky Brute 4500, was the service given to me by the staff at Etrailer.com. They answered all my questions, and followed up on my order at every step. The trailer jack was very easy to install, and has worked perfectly. It makes hitching, unhitching, and leveling a snap. I will have one of these on every trailer from now on. 62520

    very easy to install - the toggle switch control was a bit confusing - when switched to the down position it raises the foot ( I guess it means down to lower the trailer not to lower the foot ) It also was a bit tight against the hard propane tank cover and when I attempted to turn the unit to the side the bolt openings would not match up - not a big deal. Really liked the protective holder for the cable althought it is a bit difficult to use being the unit was tight against the propane cover 80654

    Jack still works great, it is rated for 4500 pounds and my trailer is a mobile commercial kitchen with close 8000 pound weight and it handles it without an issue. when its not in use I use 6 ton jacks to support it, but the jack handles the load without an issue. Will definitely recommend this product!

    Jack came in a timely manner and was in good condition.Easy to install,circuit breaker could be a little bit clearer on hook up (line/load) The jack would not clear my tail gate when I went to put it down so I turned it 90 degrees and works great.My trailer has a 1100 lb tongue weight and jack has no problems at all.The bracket for the pig tail was a good idea and works great. 75964

    Love this new Lift! etrailer is the best. Easy order, fast delivery, great installation videos. It was easy to install. I wired it inside the electric brake box and mounted the circuit breaker to the side of the battery box. No splicing of wires. Well made piece of equipment. Love the lights, weather sealed switches AND the trailer connection Hanger w/cover......nice! Worth the money, superior to other types I researched. I'm 63 and tired of hand cranking. My trailer is 19' long and very tall and heavy and this lifts it with ease. This is very quiet also. 433280

    A great jack. Works great lifting my 28' trailer. I had to move my propane tanks back almost 2" to clear the cover, and that was with removing the plug holder. Other than that it mounted in the same holes as the hand jack. I would recommend and buy from etrailer.com again. 136898

    This jack has been performing flawlessly. We have traveled extensively over the last year and it has been used often. It has saved my back every time I use it. I use it to lift the tow vehicle hitched to the trailer when attaching the load control bars. This makes it much safer than trying to use the tool to overcome the tension. During our last trip, the trailer was parked on a very sloped driveway. When hitching up to leave, I needed to extend the jack to its upper limit to connect the load control bars. When I looked back at the vehicle I saw that its rear wheels were lifted completely off the ground. The jack did not even strain to do it. I was impressed. I also want to compliment etrailer.com on their customer service. The first jack they sent had more gear noise than I thought it should. All I did was ask if this was normal, and within a few days I received a replacement unit. No hassle. Thanks, etrailer. 243896

    Received the Husky Brute HT87247 (4500 lb). When deciding which one of these to purchase I watched the product and installation videos for most of the units I was considering - also read some of the reviews. This unit made the most sense to me. Delivery was very fast and installation also took next to no time at all. It was not that long ago that I had installed the one currently on the trailer so pulling that one off and reinstalling this one took about 40 minutes. The added part to hold the trailer wiring looked like something nice to try so that is installed also and the trailer plug is in place. So far so good. I like the adjustable foot that slides up and down and saves on the run time of the unit. Could be that is why the other product I had failed and wouldn't you know - past the warranty. So far this makes the list of a product I would recommend as well as Etrailer to purchase it from. 314536

    This replaced an OEM LCI Jack that came on our T Trailer that never seemed to have the 'umph' to lift the 24' - 6000lb TT. It always sounded like it was over working, especially when I lifted the tail of the truck a few inches to set the load equalizer bars. The Husky Brute is a different matter altogether! What a difference! The installation was straight forward and without any difficulties & everything works as 'advertised' and it shows no signs of any strain when lifting the trailer tongue or tail of the truck! Pros: Easy install; Power; Positive up/down stops at position limits; Full 18" of lift; Circuit breaker instead of fuse; Night lights; Nifty 7 pole plug holder; Powder coat paint durable. Cons: None 406254

    So far the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack is a great quality product. Very smooth operation and works better than the one it replaced. Installation was very easy, even for someone not as handy as myself. I had mine installed and working within 30 minutes. The free shipping from etrailer.com was also excellent. My trailer jack broke the day we were leaving for a 5 day trip. I was able to install a temporary hand-crank jack and head out to my destination. Once I got to where I was going, I ordered this one from etrailer and it was at my door step by the time I got home. I will always buy my travel trailer parts from etrailer, they sell good quality products, the prices are fair, and they're shipping is outstanding. 413412

    One year later - still very happy with purchase. We purchased for our vending trailer, which at times can be carrying quite a load. It lifts the trailer with no strain. We are often the envy of fellow vendors. We may have paid a little more than others that have purchased a lesser quality product - but watching others have issues with their electric jack - we know why we did. We had to make a few modifications to install, due to style of frame of our trailer - but ETRAILER's customer service and tech service is the best and walked us through the issues. I would recommend the cover offered as well. It protects the electronics of the jack, and looks a lot better than plastic bags I've seen on others. :) 372659

    Great trailer tongue jack and super pricing from etrailer. Prompt delivery and superior service makes buying from these folks a pleasant experience. Had the Husky Brute jack on our 34' foot race car trailer (sold) and just purchased another for new 30' unit. Feature laden product with plenty of lifting power and has never let us down. Light feature comes in handy on those moonless nights and especially like the convenient hooded storage receptacle for trailer plug. Have recommended this unit to many of my racer friends and they are highly pleased with this outstanding product. Buy this Jack...and buy from etrailer!

    I have owned two 20' enclosed trailers that are full of either lawn equipment or construction tools. I have had electric jacks on each of them for several years now that I purchased at a local trailer dealer. One of them recently went out so I purchased an electric jack from etrailer. I never knew that my old jacks was so weak. The new jack installed in minutes and looks a lot better than any of my old ones. I cant wait until my other jack tears up so I can order me another one to replace it. I ordered it on Monday and had it on my trailer on Wednesday. If you are thinking about getting one, don't wait.....you won't be sorry. 161722

    Quick bolt on, but I will weld on a bracket to allow tailgate to clear when close to straight (out of mix gas at the moment). ~ 7 inch setback. smooth, quiet operation that runs fine on 30A circuit via 7-way plug Lights are unimpressive but marginally functional Lower telescoping leg has good range and minimizes need for blocking Took LT 5 minutes to mount and another 15 to complete wiring. Love the ball bearing design. Wish they would build in the clutch release to the hand crank Be aware the hand crank in packed in the bottom/outside of the foam and would be easy to discard. One of the better models I have owned. 172402

    Very nice tongue jack as a replacement for the jack that failed on my Jayco X23B. Was straight forward to install, and is quieter/smoother than my old one. The Husky has more lift power than my old one, which is good since I use a weight distribution hitch. The Husky also looks much better, and I really like the electrical cord hangar/protector feature. One last thing to mention is that the raising/lowering speeds are noticeably faster than my old jack as well. So based on initial impressions, the Husky jack gets 5 stars from me! Also, shipping from etrailer was very fast; I received it within 3 days of ordering! 385482

    I ordered on the 12th, it got here today, the 18th, 6 days shipping, is that good?? Since it just got here, I'm not sure of the function or quality. I'll need some time to answer those concerns. I do like working with etrailer, their prices are competitive with e-bay & Amazon but lots more customer service. It would be nice to be able to obtain a 5,000 lb jack w/o remote, but I'm sure the 4,500 lb will work just fine. I wish the mounting plate were triangle shaped, as the one on my trailer is triangle shaped, hopefully the round one on this model, will match up with the holes on my trailer. 369178

    Ordered the Husky Brute Trailer Jack on Tuesday and received it on Friday. Everything was in the box and in good shape. Installed the jack on my trailer in about an hour. It was an exact fit. I did have to take the connector stowage holder off and relocate it order to clear the gas bottle cover. Ended up installing it on the cover itself and makes a great place to hang the trailer power cord. The jack worked great and raised and lowered my trailer with no effort. This will definitely make a big difference connecting and disconnecting my trailer with the weight distribution hitch to my truck. 150747

    this electric jack - purchased for a LQ horse trailer, arrived very quickly. I had it installed at a local mechanic shop and it is night and day comparison to the one it replaced which was only 5 years old. This jack is very easy to power lift with just a simple flip switch and it is soooo quiet, it is amazing. My last jack made loud machine noise, and I had to hand crank it the last 1/2 to get it off the ball. ASK me if I am pleased with the difference this new jack makes! YES x 1000 !! Thank you for a great product and customer service. I will recommend this jack to anyone! :-) 83684

    • Best Powered A-Frame Jack Recommendation for Trailers
    • I really like the Husky Brute Jacks like the part # HT87247 as they use ball bearings in the main screw of the jack for a smoother (quicker) operation and because they automatically stop when they reach the bottom or the top of the jack's range. Similar jacks will allow you to over-extend them and damage the threads, but not this one.

    • Power Source For Electric Trailer Jack
    • The Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack, part # HT87247 uses a 12 volt system. The jack will perform better by drawing power from a nearby source rather than through the 7-way wiring harness. I would recommend you use a trailer mounted battery if possible.This jack has a 4500 lb weight capacity and has a 25 amp draw on a normal rated load. If you prefer to use your vehicle power, this can be done by splicing into the trailer harness wiring. I have attached a photo that shows the position...

    • How to Lower Husky Brute Electric Jack # HT87247 w/ Manual Crank
    • The fact that you're having difficulty doesn't necessarily mean there's a problem with the jack. Before manually operating the jack using the hand crank, the brake needs to be released. If you click the provided link to the video demonstration, and fast forward to the 4 minute mark, you can see how to release the brake. Once that's done, you should be able to manually lower the jack with no problem.

It will increase though when the trailer is loaded so you will need to consider that as well.

    • Here is how Husky recommends you operate their Brute jacks manually. Disconnect the jack from power source otherwise serious injury can occur. Remove access covers on top of the jack. Insert manual crank handle into access hole on top of jack. (This is where I think your issue is) While holding the crank handle firmly insert the brake release handle on the brake lever and pull forward releasing the brake. Once desired height is reached reinstall the brake release handle. I attached...

    • Replacement Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack for a 9,000 Pound Dutchman Travel Trailer
    • A 9,000 pound trailer should have a tongue weight of 900 to 1,350 pounds, maybe a little more, so any jack that has a capacity higher than the tongue weight would work. But the higher the capacity of the jack the easier it will be for it to lift the trailer and the longer it will last. That is why I recommend going with the Husky Brute, # HT87247. It is rated for 4,500 pounds and has 18 inches of lift. And with this jack it will shut off before it can over extend which can damage a regular...

    • Will a 3,500 Pound Capacity Electric Jack Work Well on 7,500 Pound Travel Trailer
    • You can use a 3,500 pound capacity electric A-frame jack for your 7,500 pound travel trailer. The jack capacity does not need to match the weight of the trailer since the jack will not be lifting the weight of the entire trailer, only the trailer's weight at the tongue. Our most popular 3,500 pound A-frame electric jack is the Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack with 23 inch Lift # JET-3755. I've attached a review video of this jack for you. If you're concerned about the 3,500...

    • What is the Clearance of the Husky Trailer A-Frame Powered Jack # HT87247
    • I went to the warehouse and pulled a Husky trailer jack # HT87247 to take some measurements for you. Measuring from the center of the jack tube straight back it measured 4-3/4 inches to the back edge of the plug holder. However, with that plug holder removed it only measured 2-1/2 inches, a big difference. The plug holder is held on with 5 screws and slides down to come out of the jack. You would then want to replace the screws to keep water and other crud from getting inside. I made...

    • Which Capacity of Powered Trailer Jack for Keystone Outback 277RL
    • Powered jacks are rated by their lift capacity. According to the specs I found online, the 277RL has an unloaded tongue weight of around 870 lbs. For quickest and most reliable operation, you'll want to choose the powered jack with a larger available lift capacity. In this instance, overkill is a good thing. I'd recommend the Husky Brute, part # HT87247. The jack has a 4500 lb lift capacity, but having a higher than needed capacity will mean a faster lift and a much longer life for the...

    • Recommended Electric Trailer Jack for an A-Frame Trailer With 700 lb Tongue Weight
    • I recommend using the etrailer.com Electric Jack with a Footplate, part # EJ-3520-BBX, for A-Frames. This trailer jack is rated for 3,500 lbs so it will have more than enough power to lift and lower your tongue weight of 700 lbs. This trailer jack has a total lift of 25-1/8 inches and comes with an LED light that shines down towards the coupler to make connecting or disconnecting your trailer in the dark much easier. Another great feature about this electric trailer jack is that it has...

    • Recommended Power Jack for Travel Trailer With 500 lb Tongue Weight
    • Although the jack you referenced would work well with the amount of weight you mentioned, when choosing a jack I always recommend overkill. Choosing the highest rated jack you can find will mean the jack will not need to work so hard. This means the jack will lift the trailer more quickly and will last longer. I really like the Husky Brute 4500 lb capacity model, part # HT87247. The jack provides some unique features, like ball-bearing operation for smoother and easier lifting and less...

    • Recommended Electric Tongue Jack For Toy Hauler
    • For your toy hauler, I recommend the Electric Jack w/ Footplate - Drop Leg # EJ-3520-BBX. This jack has a 3500 lb capacity and will lift 25-1/8 inches total. That lift is including a 5-5/8 inch drop leg travel. It has the outer tube diameter of 2-1/4 inches to fit your A-frame's jack hole diameter. If you are interested in a jack that requires less power draw and uses a low-friction ball screw to reduce wear, I recommend the Husky Brute # HT87247. This jack will also fit your application...

    • Availability of Electric Trailer Jack w/ Remote Control

    • Dimensions of the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247
    • The specifications section of the product description for the Husky Brute electric trailer jack # HT87247 indicates that the drop leg travels 6 inches. This refers to the lowermost portion of the jack that is connected to the foot plate. In the product photos you cannot see the fully extended length of 6 inches because this is recessed inside the outer tube of the jack. I have included a photo showing this measurement. The Husky Brute trailer jack uses a ball-bearing screw system to...

    • A-Frame mount Electric Trailer Jack for a 10K Race Car Trailer
    • Toy haulers like your race car trailer often times have a higher tongue weight than the traditional 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. The higher capacity you go with, the easier it will be for the jack to lift the load and the longer it will last. You could get a Husky 4,500 pound capacity jack # HT87247 at a good price. The available 4k capacity jacks actually cost a little more. If you measure the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and it ends...

    • Husky Electric Tongue Jack Recommendation
    • For an electric tongue jack, I recommend the Husky Brute # HT87247 for a couple of reasons. Although both companies are very reputable and produce quality product, it seems as if the Husky more favorable reviews from customers. For about the same money, the other benefit is that the Husky has a higher weight capacity at 4,500 lbs versus the 3,500 lbs of the Stromberg-Carlson. Aesthetically, the Stromberg wins hands down. The white is cool, but, with it being out in the weather on...

    • Troubleshooting Ultra-Fab Powered Trailer Tongue Jack
    • Some powered tongue jacks like the Husky Brute # HT87247 use the mounting flange that bolts to the trailer frame to make the necessary ground connection. Other jacks like the Ultra-Fab # UF38-944014 use a separate ground wire. Either way that clean bare metal-to-bare metal contact is essential for the jack to operate properly. A weak ground may allow the jack to function under some conditions but it is possible that it may not allow full current to reach the motor. Switches certainly...

This jack features a 6-inch drop leg and lift of 18 inches so the total travel is 24 inches. This also includes a manual override if needed. This is a bolt-on installation. To keep the jack protected from the elements over prolonged periods of time I recommend part # UF38-944020.

    • How Does the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247 Wire to a 7-Way
    • The Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247 that you referenced only has one wire that runs from it, the power wire. This wire would need to get run to the 12 volt accessory circuit of the 7-way on your trailer's wiring. The jack grounds through the mounting hardware of it so you would not have to run a ground wire. If you only have a 4-way on your trailer you will need to upgrade that to a 7-way like the part # HM20048. I attached a wiring diagram that shows how the 7-way would...
