Modified Trailer Eliminates Need For Loading Ramps
Glenn Thompson of Fredericksburg, Texas made a simple and inexpensive modification to his trailer to make loading small tractors easy and safe.
I have a collection of compact tractors and garden tractors so I often need to haul them around. Ive witnessed enough accidents to develop a dislike and distrust for ramps, says Thompson.
So, I bought a 10-ft. long trailer equipped with a tilt bed and mounted a winch and a screw-jack on front. This allows me to drive up to the trailer, connect to the winch, and haul the tractor on board. Once the tractor is loaded, I can lower the bed at my convenience. Loading small tractors this way is easy on my back, and safe.
