    I need something to get my z mowers on to curbs so we can mow. I have seen something I think they were called curb jumpers. Does anyone know where I can get some curb jumpers? I have seen them in a magazine before, but now I cannot find them.
     
  2. I have seen some people use car ramps, that you can buy at the auto parts store.

    I know its a pain, but in a pinch you can back the trailor up and drop the gate on the curb.

    Unless the curbs are a foot high, you can back over the curb without any problems at all. Have you tried "backing over" them, instead of fronting over them yet???? Most curbs you back straight over and the higher ones you back up at an angle with no problems.

    Try making one out of wood. I use a 4X4 about 4 ft long.

    I have a Super Z and they claim it will cross an 11" curb. Of course I haven't because there are no curbs that high here in NC. I have no problems on 7-8" curbs.

    Walker makes a curb ramp that is light and works well. It is made of heavy duty plastic, and has worked well for me.
    If you need picture, let me know and I can get one. I don't remember how much it cost, but it would be worth a call to a Walker dealer.
