    I just bought a 1997 isuzu npr landscape body with a drive on ramp for zero turns. Is it possible to flip the mower when going up the ramp? It seems like my front tires are barely touching the ramp when I drive it up. When I back it down slowly my rear bumper on my zero trun scraps the ground. Are these beds all the same on the trucks. It seems pretty steep going up and makes me very nervious
    when I see the tires start to lift as I am leaning forward.

    Will depend on ramp length and height of bed...

    Mine is pretty steep, I was nervous at first but haven't had any problems. The rear bumper on my mower does not scrape though.

    Maybe gate is a little short?

    You can always take it to a trailer manufacturer and have them lengthen it. They can make it as long as you want :)

    Gate must be short. Different companies make different beds for the back. I have no problems with mine

    lengthen the ramp and add a few weights to the front of your mower

    By the way, where would be a good place to find one of these types of landscape trucks?
