Ultra-Tow Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Ramp
Aluminum Cargo Carrier with ramp
I purchased this product specifically for the purpose of loading and carrying a 3 wheeled GO GO scooter. As far as carrying goes there is not a problem. But I was extremely surprised to see the actual spacing of the loading ramp bars. The only way to get the scooter loaded is to pick it up and put it on the carrier. The wheels are so small that they will fall between the bars. With some modifications it will work once the ramp is corrected. The ramp is almost useless if what you are loading has small wheels. If the ramp were redesigned this would be an excellent carrier for anything with wheels.

Great for travel baseball team
Bought this along with a large wagon from northern and it works great. Load up the wagon with gear and pull it onto the carrier and you are done. No more several trips to fields. It is lightweight compared to other carriers this size that has a ramp. The base plate and the hitch are made of steel , that is where the extra weight comes in. Overall very satisfied.

Does the job.
I bought this in order to sometimes carry a lawnmower or leaf blower behind my pickup. It does the job but the widely spaced rungs in the ramp could be closer together in order to more easily push the lawnmower onto the carrier. Also the tiedown rings are not very strong and if pulled on too tightly with a tiedown strap will bend easily. Basically this product does the job but could use some improvements.

ultra-tow aluminum cargo carrier with ramp
My husband purchased this ramp last year to haul my scooter. It works wonderful. So, easy to install and to remove. It fits perfect behind our truck and we haul a fifth wheel camper with it on. We could have not found a greater product. Thanks.

Ultra Tow Receiver Carrier
Product seems well made although plastic end caps and corners seem too light weight. A couple of the black end caps fell out right away and I have been trying to get replacement parts from TGB International. After a couple of months I think I finally have parts on the way. Had to redrill the bottom of the rack to fit the holes in the receiver metal piece. Also the ramp could use a couple for plastic washers to make it fold easier. Would like to have seen the ramp able to fold flat into the carrier when not in use.

Great piece of equipment
I use the carrier to transport my wife's scooter chair. Much easier to install and secure. I also have another transporter and the quality of Northern Tool's is head and shoulders above it. It is well constructed, light, but sturdy. The only thing that I would recommend changing is the distance between the cross pieces on the ramp are too far apart and the smaller wheels tend to get hung up.

Great Product BUT
Does exactly what is described. Light weight yet strong and durable. The only problem was putting it together. Only 4 of the holes lined up to install the hitch bracket to the carrier. I had to drill out the other 6 holes to line up to each other which is easy because it is aluminum. However it does not affect the integrity of the unit because they were only off by 1/4 of an inch or so. I also had to drill out one of the pin holes for the ramp that hold the ramp up in storage. I would buy this again or recommend it to others it looks good on the back of my vehicle and is strong enough to carry what I want to.

Best alternative to a trailer. I need to move a snowblower and a wood chipper. Each one fits perfectly and the ramp makes loading painless.

receiver hitch platform/ramps #365374
This is one of the best things I ever bought. My companion is on a skooter and I used to have to lift it into the back of the pick-up. Witch I can't do anymore. This device has made our going places much eazier. It really works great. It is light weight and easy to use. LOVE IT AND USE IT ALL THE TIME.

Good for someone without a truck to haul items.
Was hoping for better quality, very cheaply built, light weight grade aluminum. Missing 50% of hardware. Still very sturdy. Easy to assemble, still heavy for aluminum and I am a heafty man.
