A-Frame Trailer Jack Options with a Lift Capacity of 5,000 lbs


The part specifications says the lift capacity is 3,000 lbs but the installation article says it is 5,000 lbs, which is correct ? Im planning on buying one but I want to make sure what I buy is rated at 5,000 lbs, thank you

The Bulldog Square A-Frame Trailer Jack, # BD195318, has a lift capacity of 3,000 lbs and a static weight capacity of 5,000 lbs.

If you want a jack with a 5,000 lb lift capacity, I recommend looking at the Bulldog Round A-Frame Trailer Jack, # BD1750290301. This jack has a lift capacity of 5,000 lbs, a top wind crank and a 15 inch lift like the square jack you referenced. At this time we do not have any square tube or drop leg jacks with a 5,000 lb lift capacity.

This jack can be used with a detachable foot plate, # BD018564, or a heavy-duty wheel caster, # BDCP555. Keep in mind, the wheel caster will reduce the weight capacity to 1,500 lbs, so it may not be ideal for you.

If the drop leg is important, then you may want to look into our weld-on options like the Bulldog Square Weld-On Trailer Jack, # BD190704. This jack has a lift capacity of 5,000 lbs and a drop leg, but it must be welded to the trailer frame.
