I have been using the HF ramps I got on sale right after I got this trailer. I finally got the little angle iron ramp holder put on the back this summer. So I thought it was time to fix the ramps to fit it. Alice and her heavy butt was working them over pretty good.

Before:

Here's the after:

It's Alice tested and Alice approved.

Alice is about half again what these are rated for! But they are holding up!

I bought some of those and bent them on first try!  One was worse than other. Figured they would only be good with a board under them after that. I can't see how those hold up that big tractor I'm saying!  Me ends bent too, just like yours. I would not suggest them to anyone. I have some folding aluminum ones now, lot more money and  pretty good, even the big PK can go up those. Was afraid of aluminum, but it is pretty hard stuff and braced much better. They also are longer and arc then, think that is needed when decks are mounted.

These would be okay for smaller, lighter tractors.

Good job Kenny.  Much safer then the OEM configuration.

Except I can no longer use them on the PU.
