Helpful Expert Reply:

For your application I recommend using the Bullydog Square Jack # BD182701. This jack has a lift capacity of 12,500 pounds which is rated more appropriately for your trailer with a Gross Vehicle Weight of 12,000 pounds.

The Pro-Series Jack that you mentioned # PS1400950376, only has a lift capacity of 10,000 pounds, and a static capacity of 12,000 pounds. Your trailer exceeds the capacities of the jack.

The diameter of the drive for the Pro Series # PS1400950376, and the Bulldog are both 1 inch in diameter. Please note that for the Pro Series Jack a handle is included but not for the Bulldog Jack. The handle needed for the Bulldog Jack is the # BD015181.

Both of these trailer jacks are a single drive version so the speed for lifting would be the same. The larger capacity of the Bulldog jack has a higher capacity, and would be less stress on the jack and is the appropriate weight for your trailer with a 12,000 GVW.
