Electric jack diameter for Sport 22FB?

I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on an electric tongue jack, and have noticed two different sizes for post diameter, 2" and 2.25". I don't have access to the trailer at the moment to measure. Anyone know which size the Sport 22FB would have? Anyone have a favorite jack? Leaning towards Barker or Atwood. Seems like a lot of switch issues with the Barker though...

If a Bulldog Jack becomes a consideration we had a negative experience with it and will likely not buy it again.

We use the lifter bars as part of our hitch set up. One of the steps is to run the Jack up to a high position, put your chains into a link and the lift your bars into a set position. This usually works well with this exception.

The Bulldog Jack can disengage its gears when raised up beyond a certain point. There is not (currently) a marking on the jack post or a stopping point that indicates you should not raise any higher. When you are stuck at that extended height you can only use the manual version with a socket. On our case we applied do much twisting force we broke the upright manual post off.

I only found out about this Bulldog Jack glitch by googling for a fix and found several mentions of it. Bulldog acknowledges the problem and e trailer will exchange the damaged jack for no money but not sure we want another one.

Will decide soon if we will opt for a Husky Jack instead.
