I bought this carrier primarily to transport my generator from my house to my shop down the road. I had bought a similar unit from HF, but returned it because it was too small for the generator and did not have a ramp. The HF carrier was a similar price and not as sturdy as this unit. My only complaints is that the ramp does not fold flat into the carrier which makes it difficult to mount the carrier to the trailer hitch by yourself. Also, I would have preferred to have removable fasteners that retain the ramp to the carrier instead of cotter pins to make it easier to remove the ramp when storing it.
I fit this platform for an upright Walker. It was easy to assemble. I am so grateful I have this. The large Walkers are heavy to lift and takes up a lot of car space.
Shipping was fast.
I got this because I hated to put my stuff in my suv so this was really handy now I can get my snow blower or lawnmower where I need to be. its east to set up and hitch.
received the hitch carrier in time for a group ski trip . tied a tarp on the luggage and
that gave room inside for passengers..works great. planning on using for snow blower
and coolers to camp in summer.
I purchased this product to transport my 27" snow thrower. I received the delivery 3 days before it was promised. UPS beat the box up quite a bit. Seems a better box could be used for shipping.
Likes: Shipping was prompt. Product quality seems to be good. It will do the job of what I need after some minor additions to the ramp and hitch throat.
Dislikes: The loading ramp is VERY slippery when loading the snow thrower. I will need to add an antiskid coating to the ramp and deck to stop it from sliding when loading. SAFETY OBSERVATION: DO NOT WALK ON THE RAMP OR DECK IF ITS WET. I'm not sure how much it would add to the cost of this product but feel that an antiskid coating should be added.
The hitch throat seems to move around (Has play) a bit when inserted into the receiver. I'm not sure if the difference is in the receiver or the hitch throat. I'll have to make sure I center the weight of the snow thrower on the deck to minimize the movement.
The instructions for assembly are very small and somewhat hard to understand. Picture only no written instructions
Although I have more dislikes than likes, overall I think its a decent product for the price I paid for it.
Easy and quick to assemble. Well made and good value for the money. It was shipped promptly.
This unit is being used to transport portable generators to rural job sites. The size and build of this unit are exactly what we needed. The solid construction and capacity of the basket are fantastic. We are completely satisfied with the product from the shopping online experience, great price with fast shipping, and the end user satisfaction made this a quality experience.
Received my Steel Basket Utility Cargo Carrier today via UPS. Shipping container was double boxed for extra care in shipping for a 5 star rating. The carrier goes together rather simply and I had it ready to use in less than 20 minutes. Mounted the unit to my 2013 Ford Escape with a factory installed 2" trailer hitch. Backed my 26" Ariens snow thrower up the ramp and onto the unit fairly easy. Once on the carrier you need to center the weight to avoid twisting the carrier. I tied the blower down with cargo straps and gave it a test drive. Very little movement of the cargo carrier and performed as expected from the previous reviews I have read. I do like this unit as it uses 3 stabilizing bars for support to help maintain the cargo carrier level. Great carrier at a great price.
I bought this for my husband. He is very happy with quality. Also very anxious to get started using. I am also happy he no longer has to lug snow blower etc. Into van.
Thanks for great product.
fits my 28" snow blower which is really 29'3/4" tight squeeze but fits..all parts in box ships fast easy to assable.overall great product for price.you can buy better ones but this does just fine...
Exactly as pictured. Strong and steady. Light weight and easy to move and hook up. Clips to secure the gate up could be easier to remove. But over all. Exactly what we expected.
I am a proud new owner of the Hitch mounted cargo carrier, (ucc500). The carrier arrived three days prior to estimated delivery date!!! The assembly was a breeze, most importantly all associated hardware was complete, (no missing parts)..!! I purchased this carrier to move my snow blower around during the winter months. As it turns out the carrier also handled the weight of two deer me and my grandfather harvested..!! Without being said there are many great uses for this carrier. (no disrespect to non hunters).
I received the product on time. It was simple and easy to assemble and install on my Chevy SUV. I have already used the Cargo Carrier to haul power washers lawn mowers and and snow blowers. It as already payed for its self. It is strong and I can anticipate many years of usage. You have offered a good product at a good price and I wholeheartedly recommend this product and your company.
I love this carrier. Got it for snow blower and misc. stuff. Ordered it on Sunday, got it on Tuesday and the assembly was easy and it went together perfect. Can't wait to use it. Thanks
this rack is well made and thought out, welds are neat and uniform and rack is easily assembled. the ramp hinge pines slide in and out easily so ramp can be stored inside rack. well worth the price
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.
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..
seems sturdy, went togther easy, using for my snowblower - looking forward to easy loading!
this is one of the best ideas yet as before we had to tow a home made trailer to carry my power chair in. parking was always hard as we needed two parking spaces to park.this lift will be a blessing to us.. sincerely karen
I live in Massachusetts, We have recently experienced massive snow totals I purchased the cargo trailer to move my snowblower between properties.Assembly was very easy, installation onto my vehicle was very smooth.So far it has saved me 80 inches and counting...ordered on a Monday arrived that Friday just in time for blizzard that dropped 33.5 inches of snow
Love the size of the carrier not only I can fit my snowblower, I can use it for many other things. I would recommend this 100% quality product!! Discount ramps rocks!!!!!
Not sure if the material is rust resistant, but it does what it's supposed to do.
like it for the convemience of hauling lawn mower and snnow blower
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.
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.
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.
