I have a Fulton f2 jack on my trailer, this must be the biggest pos jack available. Thus far Ive gone through 2 of them in 2 years. On the first jack the inner plastic gear broke and now the second one snapped a plastic hub off the wheel.

Who makes a jack that's worth buying? A little metal would be great!

I don't know, I think you just might be having some bad luck.

Do you have the twin or single wheel?

I busted a wheel but that was my own fault. I left the jack down after I crank it up off the ground and forgot to fold it up.

Mine's been solid but I don't push it around too much. I use the truck for that. Mostly up and down, a little back, forward, left or right.

I always need to move mine back and sideways to the point my wheel has marks on it from kicking the wheel in a different direction. So I guess when I need a replacement, the F2 is not for me.

There are a couple different Fulton jacks. A dual wheel and a large wheel. You'll have to search for it.

$34 for a new plastic wheel? You could probably fabricate a metal one for that much.

I would stay away from the dual wheel, my 2013 was supposed to come with the dual wheel and was told that they were snapping a ton of them so they reverted back to the single wheel. I must say the quality has really went down hill in the past 19 years. My 1994 had a Fulton and never had an issue with it up to the day I got rid of it, you can tell it was just a higher quality back then.

This will be my 3rd F2 in 2 years.. It's the dual wheel one. Fortunately they have a lifetime warranty, and are sending out a new jack without question. I asked about obtaining a single wheel version but they only replace with same.
