Power ramp...

I have a landscape trailer with one of those steel mesh tailgate ramps that is about 5 feet long and weighs about 100 lbs. My problem is I have torn ligaments and torn bicep muscles in my right arm. The left arm isn't much better, either. It's really painful lifting that ramp many times every day, all season. I'm looking at alternatives.

I could remove the ramp and buy 2 narrow aluminum ramps, but that would create storage issue because my trailer is short (about 8 feet by about 56" wide). I have a Deere zero turn, and about 2-feet of room behind it for fuel, trimmer, etc. I pull with a Hyundai Santa Fe. I'm also 70-years old.

Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!
