    They are pretty sweet looking, I was eyeing them up for a snowblower as well. I called and the price was something like $800. Sounded like a great product, but I'm getting some aluminum ramps at Lowe's. :(

    Looks like a lot of work to me. I've got a couple of 2 X 8s with a metal angle piece attached to them that I've used for over 8 years now, cost me less than $50. Throw them in the bed, pull them out, set them up, good to go.

    They look pretty cool not sure if they are worth the money if they are $800.

    I've been looking at this ramp system to purchase. good quality and very durable. connects into your 2" receiver hitch and they have an adapter to have the ramp system still hooked to your truck and pull a landscape trailer around. my opinion, very well worth the investment. they even have lift assist on the bigger ones.theck them out.they are a whole lot cheaper in price than what you would think.

    I got some from harbor freight tools $35 that are stainless steel and work good. For light commerical use i think they will do the job. Both weigh 50 lbs.
