Since the wheel is not necessary you could remove it if you are concerned about the weight. According to the data. The shipping weight is 15#.
Ohhhhh sorry. I thought you meant a powered A-frame jack. I just reread your post and you were actually pretty clear. I read what I thought, not what you wrote.
Yes, I agree. A tongue jack is very lightweight. I've actually bought many over the years for Hobie Cat trailers. I've also thrown out many rusty ones.
