Easy Lift Trailer Axle / Tire Jack

Easy Lift Trailer Axle / Tire Jack

Has one used one of these? I am looking for a jack to use with a Aspen Ambassador trailer.

Re: Easy Lift Trailer Axle / Tire Jack

I was given one years ago as a gift, I found it worked well but was easiest to use with too people so you can be told when to stop. I did find that it really depended on the surface you were on, on how well it performed.

It went missing a few years back and I have no intentions of getting another.

Re: Easy Lift Trailer Axle / Tire Jack

I have an Aspen Classic and you do not need to carry a jack.

If you need to change the tire, loosen the lug nuts, then with the trailer still hooked up to the bike, just put the rear stabilizing jack down and lift the trailer to extend the jack. It will lift the tire clear of the ground.

Some people do not realize that you can also use a large punch or screwdirver in the holes on the jack to lift and lower. Look closely, put the tool through the hole on the side of the release lever and into the hole on the back side. Lever up or hold the release lever and go down. Repeat in a new hole as necessary.

I've never used the setup you showed... but I do have a jack. I just went to an automotive salvage yard and bought a scissor jack out of a wreck. I thinK I gave $10 for it.
