Trailer Stabilizer Leveling Scissor Jacks?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know a reasonably priced source in UK to purchase a set that will support a 2000kg trailer?

 

All sources appear to be selling from the US?

 

TA!

Are you planning on raising the entire trailer on a single jack?

 

Probably not, in which case you don’t need a scissor jack with a 2000 kg capacity! 

 

Mr Google is probably your best bet, in a few seconds I found this one

and this one (From Germany)

I think it is for a food trailer and perhaps for it to be permanently on the jacks?

Thanks Andy.

 

There are two stabilising jacks attached to each side of the front of the trailer that I need to replace - to let down when parking up.

Yes, a food trailer! :D

With a pair of these jacks sharing the load with the wheels and presumably two more at the back, the load on each will be well below 2,000Kg, you could quite likely get away with 500Kg jacks. I would however suggest 1,000Kg each to be a little more solid.

I took a snap to show you the jacks that I want to replace. They are welded on to front right and left of rectangular food trailer. see HERE

 

On inspection again this AM, I notice that they are not scissor jacks, strictly speaking, but more 'support legs'. So a quick Googly search landed on this product > https://www.olearymotorhomes.co.uk/alko-support-leg-1310-p.asp  But I cannot find any details about the product

 

Am I right in thinking that the wheel chocks primarily stabilise in conjunction with the rear drop down support legs and front legs?

 

Thanks

From your photograph, they look remarkably like caravan steadies.  These are rated at 600 kg so would probably be strong enough for your trailer.  They are usually bolted to the caravan but could probably be welded or you could weld suitable fixing plates to your caravan and bolt the steadies to them.

Hey guys

I still need to replace the corner steadies on my wife's 2ton food trailer. I cannot see any inscribing to help me on the part. And the trailer is a custom. 

 

I have found a seller offering 2 x Alko 205 817 & 2 x Alko 267 265 taken from a 2016 Bailey Valencia - https://www.alko-tech.com/sites/default/files/uploaded_files/EN/499668_htk-caravan_12-2018_en.pdf

 

Would these be sufficient?

Bear in mind that the gold coloured (anodised??) rectangular pieces at the opposite ends to the hexagon (and where there are bolt holes to chassis) need to have a bearing path along the length of the stabiliser. These move towards the hexagon as the leg goes down. How much weight they see I have no idea though!

Thanks guys.

BTW - the seller has placed the steadies on Ebay, so now, sadly, I am in a bidding war.

Does anyone know where I could find quality-used steadies online? Thanks!

Haven't yet... any breakers that stand out as a 'go-to' rather than calling around half the country?

 

Thanks Geoff
