Short answer, NO. Never seen one. To pick up that much weight, it has to be pretty slow, in order to have a lot of lift. Regardless of how slow, it is still faster than a manual crank, and a lot less effort.

For sure it is better than hand cranking. Thanks for the response.

I installed the IntelliJacks system on my front landing gear.
No more standing there forever holding the button.
Just push one button to unhitch & go on with setting up.
Drive out from under the 5er, push another button & the 5er levels itself front to back.

The whole set up took me about 2hrs to install.

The system cost about $300.
