USA Ramp FS- Pickup Loading Ramp

I am selling my 2009 USA ramp. It mounts in any 2" receiver hitch. It allows the hitch to take the weight instead of the of the tailgate. The ramp surface is 52" wide x 8' long. It is rated for approx 1200 pounds. You can safely load a 48" into any full size truck. This one has additional handles and a larger gas strut to make it easier to lower. The ramp could use a paint job to make it look better but it isn't really rusty. I am going to fix a few broken welds on the mesh before it sells. I have the original brochure and instructions.

I used it as my primary rig two seasons ago. It is perfect for carrying a walk behind in the back of a truck. I did use it to move my dads 48" lazer without any problems. It has pretty much sat the past year. It is currently on my grandfathers truck but will be coming off tomorrow.

I am asking $450 for the ramp. Im open to offers as I have no use for it anymore. Delivery in the NE is possible. I am willing to ship at the buyers expense. PM me if you would like more info about shipping.

Here are some old pictures and I will get current ones tomorrow.

Sorry guys, I made a mistake in the price. I am asking $400 on lawnsite. I am willing to put it on a pallet and load it for free. Should cost less than $150 to ship. I will put it on U Ship and only charge what it costs.

Yeah I feel your pain. I could use snow money too. If it doesn't sell in a month maybe we can work something out.



Here are the pictures. I have the handles that attach to the ramp, I just forgot to take a picture of them. Otherwise everything else is in the pictures. I took one so you could see the rust, it just has a bit of surface rust in some spots. A wire wheel, some rattle cans and she will look like new again.

1200lbs. I used it to move my dads 48" Lazer Z HP which is approx 1000lbs once without any problems. I was normally used to haul a 36" hydro walkbehind.

It works good. If you had a stander, It would need to be a floating deck so that it would clear the angle on the ramp. I used to wheelie the fixed deck lesco up the ramp if the deck was set less than 3" but the lazer cleared it fine with the deck all of the way up.

If you are interested, PM me if you want to work out a price and we can figure out shipping.

Do you have a link for the manufacturers website? This might work on my Australian UTE aluminum flat bed I just bought for my Toyota. I like the concept of it attaching to the hitch and not hard mounting to the truck bed.or.it my case the truck flat bed. Might work...might not?
