I'd like to here some info on them to, couldn't you just add some lift springs? Like a trailer ramp has?

Any thoughts would be nice.

It comes with a lift spring. The ramp itself is crazy heavy, so without the spring, it would get real old real quick trying to lift it all day.

I feel as though it is heavy even with the spring. Also i was running a wright stander up and down it 20 times a day so it beat it up. I think the wright stander is to heavy for it since it has a small foot print. I think walk behinds would be fine. Also the four panel folding is asking for problems with employees hurting themselves. First one they sent sagged and the second one started sagging too.

You just gotta get your gym on, bro.

Just kidding! It really is pretty darn heavy. If the spring is stretched out a little further than the directions say, it's not that bad. We do the same volume as you, sometimes a bit more. The only thing beat up for us is the 'grip' paint.

The 4 panel folding, however, does have some issues. The first panel does sag, and doing so, the mower gets caught going up or coming off. An easy fix was to put a piece of aluminum/steel rod inbetween the joint to no let it sag. As far as employees hurting themselves....I see no way how this would be possible unless it was gross negligence or just straight up stupidity.

Here is a picture of where I put the rod on the ramp:

I have one in my shop. We had to put jack stands under it because it sagged to much. I will pull it out and try to use it again and try the rod idea.
