Just curious what some pros and cons of any particular style. I will be using them to put a 48" walk behind on truck until I can make enough money to buy a trailer. Thanks Ed

pickup bed ramps always worry me because there is an awful lot of weight being held up without much support and things can go wrong with them.

I was looking around for a ramp with some braces that transfer the weight to the ground, like these.

There has to be more out there like them.

Here is how loading equipment on a truck can go wrong.

Here is another ramp design that seems pretty solid. But, I would figure it may cost more than a small cheap trailer.

Keep me posted on what you decide to go with.
