Tailgate ramp

I drive by a john deere dealer every day and saw this ramp on the back of one of their trucks, so i stoped in and asked where they got it. They told me Bannerman makes them. So we went outside to have a look at it. It lifts pretty easy with the dual spring assist. What do you guys think of this tailgate ramp made from Bannerman? Its $799.00
any body have one? i think it weighs 140lbs.

If you dont need the width of the whole tailgate and want to save a few hundred dollars I use this for days I need the trailer.

I have been looking for a ramp to possibly set up another guy with a truck and mowing route. I would like to skip the trailer. Trimmer/edger, HH blower and a 36" mower....all the the back of a small pick up....... I like both of these options....

Im sure that will work fine for a push mower or small walk behind. but i dont think it has the ability to hold 730lbs with a max capacity of 1200lbs. that setup looks like it would work great for a 22".

You can get them in different widths. I have the "mini" trick version because I didn't need anything larger.

I have seen them wider, but I think they have a bit of flex to them ( and no arch) which isnt good for my set-up. how much did that one cost if you dont mind me asking?
