    Makes sense - Thanks. And that is some impressive OF cutting. Mine looks more like the lava that comes from a volcano...

    Yes, & I prefer feet on the hinge end of the ramp. Start far enough from the hinge to clear & come down perpendicular to the top of the ramp. Running a heavy wheeled machine up, those ramps will try to lift the ground end as the front tires hit the hinge. You want the feet under the trailer. I've had the ramp lift, placing the weight on the rear of the trailer. It lifts the rear wheels of the truck.

    Lots of bad things can happen when the truck's rear wheels are off the ground!
    I no longer own that trailer!
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    I had a three axle trailer with poorly designed ramps. The pavement in front of my home is a 6% pitch downhill. To do that, you need as many chocks as you have tires!
