    i hard would it be to ramp a 32 inch gear drive walk behind up into a truck bed. I have a dodge ram 4x4 so its pretty high up there. I know some of you work this way but most of you have trailers. This would just be temp.

    If you have any experience you shouldn't have any problem. The longer the ramps, the lesser the incline, or almost as important, the decline coming out of the truck. I do it occasionally swapping with crews or running to repair shop.
    Just make sure ramp is securely attached to truck.

    Its quite easy but if your not careful or your brakes or belts slip you could have a 400 pound mower sitting on your legs. Never seen it but I have heard about it just take it easy.

    I actually have a dodge ram 4x4. I have some aluminum ramps that are used for an ATV. I have gotten my exmark 48 into the bed of the truck. The faster you go the better as siad before just make sure the ramps are secured.
