I would not use an impact on the jacks, you are putting undue stress with the hammering action.


I agree, you have to be careful as the impact will lift the trailer wheels off the ground. Three hundred foot pounds of torque will really plant the stabilizer down on the 2×8.

You don't have to worry about over torquing or raising the unit. All but the very cheapest drills have a clutch setting. Once you set that you can screw the jacks up and down with no damage concerns.
That being said, cordless drills 12v-18v will do a great job. Anything that helps make setup and breakdown faster and easier has to be a good thing, right?
