Hydraulic Jacks?

What kind of hydraulic jacks are recommended for this? The users manual does not specify.

I have used both floor jack as well as a bottle jack.

Edit: However, most folks believe, me included, that jacking by the axle plate is the way to go. In between the wheels on a tandem.

I'm guessing the trailers about 8000-9000 pounds loaded. I wouldn't use anything less than a jack rated for 4 tons.
I use a bottle jack on the frame rail as close to the axle as possible with a similarly rated jack stand set right behind it.
Between the axles is good but difficult to access. Additionally, depending on the service being performed, there is the potential of the jack being accidentally bumped and dislodged.
