Corrosion Resistant A-frame Jack Needed for a Boat Trailer Used in a Salt Water Marine Environment


I want to use this in a salt water marine environment. Does this jack have as much corrosion resistance as the 3000 lb. jack Code: BD1550101344 that specifies corrosion resistance? I only need a 2000 lb. jack but I assume I can move up to a 3000 lb. jack without any problem .... right? I want the most corrosion resistant model. Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The most corrosion resistant jack for your application is the Bulldog Round A-Frame Jack, # BD1550101344, that you mentioned. This jack has a clear zinc finish and will last much longer in the salt water environment you described.

Stepping up to a 3,000 pound jack will make cranking the trailer a bit easier than a 2,000 pound jack and will help the jack to last longer.

If your trailer requires a top wind jack, or it would make turning the handle easier on the A frame trailer, you could also use the Pro Series Top Wind A-Frame Jack, # PSEA20000340, which has zinc plated inner and outer tubes, and is a 2,000 pound capacity jack.

The 2,000 pound Bulldog Round A-Frame Jack, # BD155157, has a very nice powder coat finish and could be kept up with paint when the finish starts showing wear or corrosion, if you would like to stay with a 2,000 pound, painted jack.
