Best...... Attwood 3500 pound. Cheapest no.
My 10 year old just lost the upper bearing inside the tube. Called Attwood as there was not enough left to match up. The nice lady said I was the first one to need that piece. She had one on the shelf and would send it to me no charge.

I was looking at that one Ted , BTW how did you do yesterday. I didn't qualify for promod but got some good info on the last run..

I'm running the 2500 now and it's just getting slower and slower and finally quit cranking..
Ill take a look at it ..
there's also a brute force 4500 available too....

I have an Ultra Fab..the switch would stick going down but i used that to my advantage until i forgot to unstick it one time and the switch burnt up. Resorted to just twisting the hot wire and grounds depending if i want to go up or down just because im lazy and haven't took time to fix it.

I might also just run 16 volts to my 2500 electric jack , it might work better. But dont like the fact that it doesnt have a manual override...

Had them all. The BEST one, by far, is the Bulldog jack: http://www.bulldogproducts.net/conte...7530%20&part=0

This thing is quiet as a whisper, rated to over 4000lbs, and best of all, has a drop foot. You pull up, drop the foot, and then you don't have to run the jack more than a foot or so. And if you're like me, and need to jack the trailer up to get the car out smoothly, the drop foot makes it so you can jack it up a ton to get the car out.

I love this thing. I've told everyone I know about it. Best invention since sliced bread.

By the way, the Bulldog doesn't need a manual crank that you have to keep track of. A 3/4" socket is all you need. Open a little flap, there's the nut, crank away.

Thanks for the tip...did you get it locally? Price? I've got a Barker 3,500 and it seems marginal.
