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 StarsFast shipping and easy to assemble

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 StarsGood ramp

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.

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.
