West Folding Arched Hybrid Ramp Set- 1,400-Lb. Capacity, 7Ft., Model# 1224
Works with caveat...
My Cub Cadet riding mower cutting deck scraped the ramp while loading/unloading. The contact halted motion. Tried several mods and concluded with removing the rungs at the scraping point (top). I placed an 18-inch run of 2x6 board on the under side of the ramps where the rungs were.
I hammered down the rung fasteners where required (close to mod area). Was seeking no scraping. I got close enough to where I could use the ramps. Unusable from box. With mod can be used. Assembly required (1-2 hours).

Surpassed my needs!
bought these ramps to be able to load my sisters ele. wheelchair onto my s10 pickup well' they not only worked out great for that purpose but I've also used them for getting the chair out & down the back door stairs 'whoopi' I'am so happy with my ramps & amazed of all the loading abiltys that I have now! The wheelchair weight is 'heavy' 250+ & the ramps take it with ease but are very light weight for me to lift, fold & store....the very worst part about these ramps are/were that I (a woman) couldn't get them together fast enough! very simple put together for anyone!

Purchased the ramps to move a snow blower. Assembly was easy and the ramps were up to the task. Would be nice from a footing standpoint if their was diamond plate over the crossbars, but well worth the money regardless.

I purchased the set after damaging a wooden pair of ramps I owned. As usual, they were shipped and received within days of placing the order. Assembly was required, which took approx. 1/2 hour, and they were ready to go. At the time, I needed to transport my snowblower to the local repair shop. The ramps had no problem with the weight, and the rungs provided excellent footing. Since then, I've loaded my garden tractor and stump grinder, both with no problem. They store readily due to their folding nature and are very manageable. For the price, an excellent buy! Thank you Northern Tool.

These ramps are very lightweight and easy to use. The initial construction is a little time consuming but well worth it. I like the versatility of using them as a loading ramp and also using them to clean my mower deck.

These ramps work great for loading my riding mower. It has saved me from buying a trailer. I can load my stuff and go!

folding ramps/ errector set
These ramps needed assembling. There were 182 pieces if i remember correctly. Each rung has to be installed onto the side rails, as do the hinge halves and the supports on the ends.
I own a Hustler Z lawn mower with a 60 inch deck and the first time i loaded it using these ramps they bent . I question the 1400 pound rating. I have continued to use them to load my mower and they have not bent any more.

I use these ramps for everything, snowblower, ATV, lawnmower and the traction on these ramps is very good and they are sturdy too. Quite a few nuts and bolts to assemble these but it wasnt very hard just time consuming.

The arch is nice, however, write on this said that the arch was good for lawn tractors and my nut from the blade caught while deck was in the highest position.
