    Has anyone had any experience in using any of the products in the link below?


    I am looking to use a ramp system to utilize my truck more efficiently. Any thoughts or alternatives would be great.

    used them for a 4 wheeler, never a mower. backing a mower down that ramp does'nt look that easy. :dizzy: :dizzy:

    Agreed, that's what I thought as well. I can see it falling right over and on top of me! :realmad:

    I did not open the picture but I have an Idea for you. I use 2X6's with aluminum ends on the tailgate end of the board. They are made by a company called Ramparts. I think they are available at many equipment dealers and in the Northern equipment magazine. I am sure they have a website some where. These are very stable and I have used them for years.
