It says "Includes lift assist air cylinder to help in folding the ramp to the upright position" in the description of the ramp that you posted.

Also, it lists the weights and prices below the description.

I was looking at it on my phone so I didn't see it all. I just got through looking at it. Looks like it would work fine. I am going to go to a local shop here that I found and see what they have because they do have some stuff.

I bought a pair of aluminum ramps, 10' long, curved, they set up on the tail gate and tether to the hitch to prevent slipping off and dropping. They can be spread wide or pushed together side by side. I found them at Tractor Supply for $50 each. They bounce a little when walking up and down them so it takes some getting used to. They work well and are a heck of a lot cheaper than a trailer considering the small size of my outfit. The problem with the solid ramps like the one pictured is that they aren't always as easy to fold up and handle. My ramps hang out the back of the bed about a foot, I'm thinking of setting up a ladder rack of sorts to hang them on the side while traveling and to make it quicker getting them set up. All in all I think they are a bit of a pain but I save a lot of money not having a trailer.
