Plastic runners for ramps?

#1 Post by Bulldog » Sun Jan 09, 2011 10:43 am

My 4 place trailer came with a 4' long ramp, but the height of the trailer combined with the long track machine sometimes allows the machine to get high centered. If I get enough speed I can make it, but a longer ramp would make loading easier. I'm thinking about making a 6' long ramp and want to find some plastic pieces like was is on the stock ramp. Where can I get some sheets or strips of plastic here in town?

Any of the dealerships should have what you need, if I order trailer stuff online I usually look at http://caliberproductsinc.com/snow.htm

Of course you do what I do and use an old track, its heavy, but it works well.

Whitespruce trailers, located between Fairbanks and North Pole sells a great product called "Super-Glides". You can also google Super-Glides and find into about the poduct as well as find places that sell the product online.

I have the superglides for the ramp on the sled bed I built, 10' long ramp, 5 foot high deck, fairly steep. I could not make the climb without some sort of guides, and these work very well. I have heard of people taking a used plastic bed liner and cutting strips and screwing them down.
