Easy to Use
The Mangrove Jack is packed with features making it the easiest to use boat trailer on the market. For example:

  • The Mangrove Jack boasts a built-in extending hitch coupling, which makes reversing a little easier. This is particularly handy when winching where a spare wheel is mounted on the rear of the vehicle.
  • The main drawbar is telescopic, using a dedicated extrusion with two rails that self-clean and prevent jamming.
  • Boat retrieval is easy, even if the trailer is not coupled to a vehicle. Just slide the axle back to it’s alternate rear position (10sec – pull pin, slide axle back, insert pin) and the trailer can’t tip during loading.
    *unless fitted with an optional rear extension.
  • The center roller has 18 possible adjustments and hull sliders are fully adjustable to accommodate various hull shapes.

 

Light Weight
Weighing in at just 38kg, the Mangrove Jack boat trailer is the lightest licensable boat trailer in Australia, with no heavy folding frame to lift. In fact, the heaviest piece is only 8kg.

 

Built Tough
Don’t let the weight fool you. The Mangrove Jack boat trailer is so tough two men can stand on the drawbar. The chassis is built from aircraft grade aluminium and all fasteners are stainless steel while the use of large box section aluminium means the trailer does not require track rods or braces for stiffening.

 

Long Lasting
The Mangrove Jack boat trailer conforms to the latest ADR regulations. It is manufactured from stainless steel and aluminium, uses high-speed 6-ply tyres and approved alloy wheels with Holden stub axles and bearings, marine seals and Castrol boating grease. We use only top quality USA or Japanese made wheel bearings.

In fact, the Mangrove Jack is the only trailer in Australia with stainless steel stub axles let alone they are 316 Stainless Steel! It is also fully anodised to protect against weathering, making it incredibly durable and rust-free!
