I bought the 10" 2000 Lb. Bulldog from SWW and seeing that many of you have opted to go with a caster wheel setup, I also purchased the 2" pinable Bulldog caster wheel. (It's actually a Fulton, but the ad said Bulldog, both units are made in Masinee WI)
It looks like I'll need to hacksaw off the foot of the jack to be able to use the caster.
I'm set to have about 12" of ground clearance, I might have to bump that up just a bit to get proper clearance for the dearture angle. (I don't want either end of the trailer scraping when using driveways)
Here's the problem... The swivel jack with foot attached, (welded) is at the right height to have my trailer set level when un hitched. The caster is going to add about 8 1/2" to the height, which won't allow me to have the trailer set level when parked.
I'm wondering if I'll be able to disassemble the jack once I cut the foot off... If so, I might be able to shorten the entire jack enough to allow the extra height needed for the caster.
BTW- I don't want to stack any additional metal on top of the tounge, just to be able to mount the jack at a different height. (It's designed to be welded right to the side of the tounge.
If I can't gain access to disassembling the jack, once I lob that foot off, I'd just as soon leave the jack as is and nix the caster idea.
BTW- the 10" jack was the shortest one that I could find.
Has anyone else ran into this situation?
If so, what did you do to correct the problem?
