only if the trailer isn't sitting completely level. the sharper the angle of the ramp the better chance of blade bolts hitting the ramp.

I built the back of my trailer up with some 2x6 and it helped a lot but every time i buy a trailer i have to do this.was just wondering what anyone else does.

i've never had that trouble. i have the proper drop on the hitch and ball so my trailer sits completely level when hooked up.

that problem goes away when you lift up the front on the mower when going from the ramp to the trailer deck and vise versa when unloading!:hammerhead:

I have a little trouble with the hitch of my Lazer hitting the gate when I back on. What helps is if I come on the ramp a bit sideways so that the tire has to climb up over the edge of ramp a little ways up it..gives me just enough additional clearance.
