Failed

from Louisville
This failed after 3 uses on a 3000# boat on flat land. The first problem is the attachment point from the jack to the mover is week and flexes a lot. The failure was the sprocket to the shaft on the low gear broke. The chain drive is so loose that the chain got caught and broke the weld. I have returned this product.

Good Idea,but needs improvement. Goes good in one direction,chain rides over chain causing it to slip in other direction. Still better than what I had for the price.

Second time in use thing broke off. It is a great idea that needs to be implemented with tighter tolerances and using better quality materials. I will gladly pay more.
Customer Services was very professional and helpful.

Not as advertised

This travel jack would not move a single axle trailer weighing a 1000 lbs. The slide bracket used to adjust the height actually bent so it was sent back immediately. Very poor design.

arrived with parts flopping around in a tattered box. assembled easily, but metal at attachment point failed by bending under very modest load, less than 1/4 of advertised rating. this product is suitable only for the lightest of utility trailers.

Tow Tuff Jack

,
April 1, 2013
By

Nice Heavy duty build. Easy install and ready to use. It's so easy to use my wife does the hook up with the trailer now so I don't have to be there. No backing up and denting the bumper anymore and getting in and out of the tow vehicle to hook up. Easy to maneuver into the tight garage space with the steering and cranking. I use a 12 volt battery drill with a 1/2" socket adapter also to move it instead of the hand crank. No more of those cheep jacks. Nice product. About time!
