LODI, Calif. - Hooking trailers to tow vehicles just got easier thanks to the new Electric Tongue Jack for deluxe models #76057 in white and #76058 in black from Valley.
Designed to reduce the physical exertion associated with manual jacks, the new Electric Tongue is available in two models. The Base Model, which fits couplers with a 2-inch opening, comes with a non-telescoping foot that works with a motor to lift the trailer.
The Deluxe Model is for use on trailers with a 2 1/2-inch coupler opening and includes a manual telescoping foot, which saves on battery life and consumption, extends the life of the motor and eliminates the need to carry a block of wood or other object around to lift the trailer. Simply pull a pin, let the foot collapse down, re-insert the pin and lift the trailer off the ball using the electric motor.
Each of Valley's Electric Tongue Jacks features a black or white powder coat finish, an aluminum motor housing cover and an LED work light - a benefit over incandescent lighting as it doesn't drain the battery dead or melt the light lens if accidentally left on. They each come with a handle for optional manual operation.
The jack has an aluminum gear housing and powder-coated, zinc-plated shaft assembly construction and is rated for a total load capacity of 3,500 lbs.
The new Electric Tongue Jack and other Valley jacks can be purchased at leading automotive parts and retail stores including Napa Auto, O'Reilly Auto Parts and Carquest Auto Parts.
