Hello Dollies?

I can't back my 31QBSS into our drive without a rube goldberg combination of ramps to keep the back jacks from scraping. Okay...so I could build better wooden ramps, but it would take a pretty long effort with some staggered boards.

My engineer neighbor was helping me with the effort yesterday and he asked why I don't just build a couple of small dollies to slide under the jacks so they'll roll instead of scrape. Seemed like a good idea to me with perhaps a more predictable process/result.

So...question for y'all...during the time when the jacks are rolling on my sweet dollies, would this place undue strain on the tongue/hitch? If I'm thinking about it right, it would pivot around the trailer axles and press the tongue down a bit?

In my imagination I would custom build a pair of two wheeled dollies that would attach to the scissor jacks with a pair of bungees, thus eliminating the need for someone to slide them in as the jacks approach the scrape point.

Okay...fire away...

David

IMOH I think your going to tear something up (jacks). By adding a 3/4 in plate and 4 in casters you are actually reducing your clearance and increasing the weight on the jacks. Also jacks are not installed to take any I mean 0 lateral (for and aft) weight.

I think if you try this you will be replacing a set of jacks.

Don't think so, going out of the phab business. This last batch of poles is the end.
