Mower drags in rear while loading

My lazer z 60" drags in the rear when loading and hangs the deck on the ramp. I have a 4' ramp and I'm thinking about extending it by a foot. Which gives me a 5 foot ramp. Any body had this problem.

I have the same complaint about the Lazer line. MY "wheelie bars" scrape a bit when UN-loading fast! The deck shouldn't though. I just wish Exmark would eliminate these low hanging supports, and maybe just 45 degree them so we could back up to, and hop a curb! My Dixie did not have either of these problems. (See, there is at least ONE thing a Dixie does better than a Lazer!)

mower drags on ramp

The deck is all the way up. I use the foot assist to get an extra inch. That seems to help but the fram drags the ground in the rear.

Get a different reciever hitch.

One that is 2 or 3 inches higher, $25 take care of that prob real quick.

Also your trailer tounge should be at least 2 or 3 inches higher that the back of the trailer.

This will change the angle of the gate at the hindge.

mower drags

I moved the hitch all the way up on the bumper which makes the front of the trailer higher and I still have the same problem. Just not as bad.
