Move your mower easily with lawn tractor loading ramps
Whether you have multiple properties or just a lot of distance between the grassy fields on your land, you might sometimes find it easier to transport your riding mower in the back of your truck when you want to save on gas and move a little bit quicker. Tractor carts or ATV trailers are useful ways to easily transport your mower, but you don't really need a separate set of wheels to get around. Tractor loading ramps are an easy-to use tool that can help you load your riding mower directly in the bed of your truck for easy transport.
There are a few different types of loading ramps on the market, and the flavor of ramp you choose will depend on your preferences and needs. The most simple ramp set-ups are a combination of two long metal boards that you line up with your tractor wheels and rest up on the edge of your truck bed. Simply lay the boards in place and then drive up the ramp. Of course, the boards will be fairly widely spaced and are usually only a bit wider than your tractor tires, so make sure you drive up straight. Some two-board ramps are curved instead of straight, making for an easier transition into the bed of your truck. Most board-style ramps are extendable and retractable, allowing you to adjust the length of the boards to make your entry angle perfect for an easy-on and easy-off transition.
If you prefer something a little wider and possibly sturdier, you can opt for a ladder-style loading ramp system. These literally look just like metal ladders, but are often a little wider than the simple metal board mechanisms. Some of them are wide enough to be pushed together to make one wide ramp that leads all the way from the ground up to your bed. Like the metal boards, these are often adjustable to different lengths, ensuring that you'll be able to drive your riding mower up a comfortable and safe angle. These ladder style ramps are best for vehicles with large wheels that can grip onto the bars and create extra traction without the need for tire chains.
Finally, you can buy large sheet metal loading ramps for your tractor. These ramps are usually shorter for navigating the small height changes between your truck bed and loading docks or service centers. These are great to have when you want to work on your tractor in the shop. You can also buy longer ramps that extend all the way to the ground, but they can be costly and achieve the same result as the less expensive board or ladder models. Sears offers a variety board and ladder style tractor loading ramps, as well as some shorter loading dock style ramps so that you can transport and transfer your riding mower from place to place with ease.
