Great for hauling a snow blower, lawn mower, and other utility equipment without taking up space inside the vehicle. An integrated 42-1/2" x 30" loading ramp allows heavier equipment weighing up to 500 lbs to easily be placed into the basket for transport. Once the cargo basket is loaded, the loading ramp locks in the upright position with (2) pins. The 1" square tube basket frame provides plenty of options for securing tie-down straps or cargo nets with hook ends.

Review Summary (Based on 13 Reviews)


5 Stars Great Product

David from NY wrote (March 17, 2015):

This thing is big. I use it to haul my garbage cans down my dirt road to the end where the garbage guys come for pickup. The ramp is great. It is very sturdy and easy to assemble. They package it well - the outer box was a wreck from shipping, but the inner box was in good shape and the bubble wrap kept the product perfect. Not a scratch. Overall I am very happy with this purchase.

I ordered this to haul a generator. It seems to be just what I need. Wicked fast delivery. It just came so I haven't had a chance to assemble it or use it yet. Carton it came in was damaged.

4 Stars Worked for me - snowblower hauler

Bob from MA wrote (February 28, 2015):

This worked great for me.. pretty easy to put together... the alignment is tight, so you need to just take your time to line up the holes/bolts before cranking them down.. I have primarily use it on the highway to haul my snowblower. In that scenario there is not much bouncing and it works great. I don't know how long it would hold up in a situation where there is alot of bouncing around. Otherwise.. I would recommend to others..

5 Stars went together easy

5 Stars What I Was Looking For

Roy from MO wrote (December 17, 2014):

I recently purchased a snow blower and was needing a way to transport it. I looked around for a hitch mounted carrier and came across this one. Assembly was easy and the carrier is heavy enough to handle almost any snow blower or push mower. This is a good item.

5 Stars Fast shipping and easy to assemble

Rich from NY wrote (December 10, 2014):

Ordered this unit last Thursday and it arrived on Monday. That is some fast delivery. It took about an 1/2 hour to assemble. Very good quality and paint job. After assembly it slid into the hitch assembly on my Tahoe easily. I purchased this unit to carry a 28 inch snow blower. I recommend this unit as it is the best value of items I researched.

4 Stars Good ramp

Jim from NJ wrote (November 24, 2014):

The ramp is a solid ramp. It can support a large snow blower. Centering the snow blower is needed or it will tilt to the heavier side.

4 Stars Hitch mounted cargo carrier

Dan from NH wrote (October 14, 2014):

After a few years of getting big snowblowers and other items up into a high bed F250HD I decided to try a hitch mount carrier, I have always been skeptical after seeing the small size and lightweight construction of the ones in local autoparts stores.Discount ramp offered the correct width and I took the chance. I was not disappointed! This unit is a solid, easy to assemble and well designed. I have put the equipment on and off as trial runs for winter and am very pleased with the product.
