was that a ramp for a regular pick-up or what? Can I have a picture or two of how it mounts? Better yet, will this fit on my pick-up?

for $9.95 I will send you the plans! lol
I have the truck at the welders getting the ramp changed to my new one so I cant get any pics for a few days.
the middle hinges are 4 separate hinges that are welded about 12" apart.
the ramp is very strong, no problem loading anything. the reason I'm selling I have a riding core aerator that is Zero turn and I don't feel comfortable unloading it with just a few inches on each side. prob not a problem for most but I'm new with the Zero turn and its really touchy!!

The ramp is off the truck! my welder said it would be no problem to put the ramp on a pick-up and can put it on the truck for the new owner for a small fee.
I would really like to sell the ramp now and not have to store it all winter!!

Can you get me an exact weight and measurements of the ramp folded up? Will it fit on an oversized pallet? We're trying to gauge if the shipping costs are within reason.

ROFLOL! :) I'd do that.. but I can't spare the 5 hours there 5 hours back right now.. WAY too busy getting geared up and putting advertizing in place.. maybe in the dead of the summer if you still have it...

I honestly don't know how you've kept it this long.. It's a great item for us box-truckers!

how hard is it to operate the ramp by yourself.

indyturf
02-18-2010, 02:28 PM
it can be lifted by one person.

indyturf
02-18-2010, 07:18 PM
not selling the truck, I got a wider ramp.

indyturf
02-18-2010, 10:04 PM
ramp dimensions folded up are 56"x70" I'm guessing the weight to be about 150lbs. I'm waiting to hear from the welder that built it to let me know what it weighs.

indyturf
05-05-2010, 10:44 PM
I will take $350 which is less than I had in material to have it built. if I don't sell it soon I'm going to have it made into 2 Permagreen carriers.

This is an amazing deal for someone. I bought an aluminum 10 foot ramp for $500 did some fabricating and hooked up a garage spring to help them lift. Proabably have 600 in it and is not as nice as this ramp for 350. Wish it were closer and I had not already wasted my money. Someone should jump on this.

Your right, I really cant believe I still have this ramp! I'm seriously talking to my welder friend about using the ramp sections to build 2 ride-on spreader carriers.
