Electric trailer jack

Anyone know what size electric trailer jack will work with my trailer?
I have an 18 foot , pintle hitch, tandem, 12000 lb capacity . I use it to carry my 262 skid ster or my 303.5 mini x.
Getting sick of cranking it up!

What about taking the crank handle off welding a Hex nut to the shaft and use a battery powered impact wrench or a good battery powered drill.

I think it would spin too fast and toast the bearings. Not a bad idea, but I don't know how long your bearings would last.

I just realized what I posted, I guess the cordless drill idea would work as long as it was set on a somewhat slow speed. Also, you'd still have to be able to use the crank to get enough leverage to get the trailer off the ball.
