Expert Answers about MaxxTow

  • Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • We have exactly what you would need. Check out the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier # HR1450-85. This is a platform bike rack that features a cargo carrier behind the bike rack that would work well as long as the distance from the center of the pin hole of your hitch is less than 12 inches. I attached a review video for this product as well. Spare tire bike racks aren't designed for use with a hitch mounted cargo carrier since most likely the bikes...

  • 2-Inch Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier to Transport Permobil C300 Power Chair That Weighs 350-lbs
  • I contacted Permobil to find out the weight of their C300 power chair and it weighs 350-lbs including the batteries. We do indeed offer several ramped carriers that will have the capacity for this chair and that also will fit a 2-inch hitch. Since I do not know your vehicle or hitch I suggest you first take a look at the vehicle owner's manual for any guidance regarding its tongue weight (TW) capacity. (TW is the downward force on the vehicle frame from whatever is attached to it.) Your...

  • Cargo Carrier with Ramp Recommendation for a Transporting a Snowblower
  • For a great cargo carrier with ramp that would work well for you without breaking the bank I would recommend the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106. The internal dimensions of the carrier are 28 inches by 48 inches. So to clear your handles that measure 54 inches long you will need to load the carrier handle first so that they clear the ramp when it's folded up. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. You will want to be sure that the hitch on your 2014 Toyota...

  • Compatibility of MaxxTow Truck Bed Ladder Rack on 2010 Toyota Tacoma Composite Bed
  • If your 2010 Tacoma is NOT equipped with the factory deck rail system, the MaxxTow Ladder Rack part # MT70423 will fit. The composite bed will not affect the fit. I don't have a .pdf copy of the installation instructions, but you can see how the rack installs by taking a look at the video I've linked for you. If you do have the factory deck rail system, I'd recommend the # TA27000-01-34 Ladder Rack from TracRac. The Ladder Rack includes adapters that allow it to be fitted using the...

  • Maximum Height Clearance and Weight Capacity of MaxxTow Hitch Crane # MT70238
  • You will have no problem hoisting your 130 lb generator onto the bed of your Ford F-150 with the MaxxTow Hydraulic Truck Crane # MT70238. It has 3 weight settings: 500 lbs, 750 lbs, and 1000 lbs. These settings are based on the position of the boom while being operated. After going into our warehouse to get a measurement, I found that this crane has maximum height clearance of 84 inches from the bottom of the connector chain to the ground. For your generator that is approximately 2 feet...

  • Can a Dual Receiver Ball Mount be Used with Weight Distribution and Carry a Bike Rack
  • You would not be able to use a weight distribution system with a dual receiver adapter such as # MT70070. They are not rated for it plus the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. To carry the bike rack and tow the trailer without a reduction in tongue weight capacity for the hitch you can use multipurpose ball mount # D210. This ball mount has a receiver at the top rated for 350 pounds. The tongue weight capacity of the whole ball mount (includes weight...

  • Is Drilling Required to Install MaxxHaul Ladder Rack in a 2013 Toyota Tacoma
  • The MaxxHual truck bed ladder rack, # MT70386, is listed as a fit for all models of the 2013 Toyota Tacoma. However, it does require drilling into the truck bed. For a clamp on rack that also fits all models you could use # MT70423.

  • Looking for Winch to Raise and Lower Purple Martin Bird House
  • What you are needing is a hand winch that will ratchet in both directions like the Fulton # FT11000301. The winch is not compatible with steel cable, but it can be used with 5/16 diameter rope up to 30 feet long. If you would prefer a winch that could be used with cable, I would recommend the Dutton-Lainson # DL15303, which is also a two way ratcheting winch. The spool of the winch can accommodate up to 50 feet of 1/4 inch cable. The MaxxTow # MT70176 will only ratchet in one direction,...

  • Inside Dimensions of MaxxTow # MT70260 Hitch Mounted Wheelchair Carrier
  • The inside dimensions of the MaxxTow # MT70260 30 x 50 Wheelchair Carrier are 48 inches long by 28 inches wide by 5 inches deep. You can see this in the photo I've edited for you. These and the other relevant dimensions are also listed on the product description page which I've also linked for you. If your snow blower is just a bit under 28 inches wide, it should just fit. You can see a product demonstration video by clicking the provided link.

  • Recommended Ladder Rack for 2016 Toyota Tacoma for Transporting Canoe
  • The MaxxTow Truck Bed Ladder Rack # MT70423 will fit your 2016 Toyota Tacoma if it does not have the deck rail system. It's uprights have a height of 26-inches so this should allow plenty of room for a canoe's bow and stern taper. If your Tacoma does have the deck rail system then you can use the Pilot Adjustable Ladder Rack # CG-902 which offers a higher 500-lb weight capacity. I linked our main page for ratcheting tie down products like # EM34415 that you can use to secure your canoe.

  • 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Extension with 5,000 Pound Gross Trailer Weight Capacity
  • I do have a solution that might work for you, though it is not an extender. An extender would end up reducing the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent anyway so it is not the best solution for you. Instead, I recommend a long ball mount. Take a look at # 80232 as an example. It is rated for 6,000 pounds and measures 16 inches long from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It has a 3/4 inch rise or a 2 inch drop. We also have # 80233. Same length...

  • Available Clearance on 2015 Ford F-250 for Loading Generator with MaxxTow Crane MT70238
  • Without knowing the specific dimensions of your camper window and generator it is tough to say if there would be interference with the open window when loading the generator onto your tailgate. The generator's height above your bed will also depend on the length of the straps or chains you use to allow the MaxxTow crane's hook to connect to the load. The crane's lifting range is from 30-inches to 84-inches above ground level so you can check the height of the open window above the bed...

  • Choosing Spare Tire Carrier for Drift Boat Trailer
  • The first step would be to determine the exact bolt pattern of the wheel. If you click the provided link, you'll be taken to an FAQ article that shows exactly how to do this. Once you determine the bolt pattern, you can compare that information with the specifications for the tire carriers you were interested in. The MaxxTow # MT70214 carrier will fit trailer frames up to 3 inches thick and 5 inches tall. It can accommodate 4-lug (4 on 4 bolt pattern) and 5-lug (5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern)...

  • Options for Carrying a 600 lb Scooter Behind an RV
  • Since the trailer hitch on your RV has a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs, it is safe to assume that it has a 500 lb tongue weight. Trailer hitches are almost always designed to have a tongue weight rating that is 10 percent of the towing capacity. I would not recommend carrying your scooter with a hitch mounted carrier on your RV. In fact, most hitch mounted motorcycle/scooter carriers are not recommended for use on motor homes or RVs because the trailer hitch is further away from the...

  • Do Trailer Jacks with Two Wheels Make it Easier to Maneuver a Jack on Concrete
  • Having 2 wheels will provide more surface area/contact with the ground. This could actually make it more difficult to maneuver compared to a single wheel. But two wheels are better than one when not on pavement. A single wheel tends to dig into dirt or gravel easier. A Fulton jack such as # FXPD15L is going to be the better jack compared to the MaxxTow line of jacks. I do recommend going with a Fulton. For a single wheel version use # FXP15L.

  • Hand Winch Recommendation to Tilt a Folding Motorcycle Trailer For Storage in the Garage
  • The MaxxTow Positive Lock hand winch that you referenced # MT70176 will work for your application. This winch is rated for up to 1,000 pounds capacity. So it would work for your 230 pound folding motorcycle trailer. Please be aware that this is a one way ratcheting system. You can place the handle in free spool mode to release the strap, but if you would like to use the ratcheting system you will have to turn the handle. For your reference this handle is 9 inches from the attachment...

  • Hitch and Platform Bike Rack Recommendations for 2015 VW Golf SEL
  • It's certainly not hopeless, we can get you though this! Let's begin with the hitch. Trailer hitches are classified according to their capacity. The smaller the vehicle, the lighter the capacity. Because your Golf is a compact car, it uses a Class I hitch which has the lowest capacity. Of the available choices, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I, part # 24925. Curt offers a hitch that's a bit less expensive, but the warranty requirements of the hitch stipulate that a stabilizing stap...

  • Dimensions of the MaxxTow Round, Swivel Trailer Jack # MT70149
  • I went and grabbed a MaxxTow Round, Swivel Trailer Jack # MT70149 from our warehouse to get the dimensions you asked for. I found that the distance from the center of the mounting bracket to the top of the jack measures 12-1/4 inches. The handle length is 6-7/8 inches, and the overall height is 26-1/4 inches. I attached these dimensions to the picture you submitted.

  • Short, 2 Inch to 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Adapter Recommendation
  • I have a solution for you, but I do not recommend drilling any additional holes in the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Adpater # MT70033. I spoke with my contact at MaxxTow and he strongly discourages any additional holes being made in the adapter. Drilling holes in the adapter will compromise the integrity of the product. The adapter will not be able to hold to determined weight capacity and will not be safe to use if modified. If you need a shorter reducer sleeve, I recommend the Brophy...

  • Could a Hitch Cargo Carrier be Used to Transport Propane Tanks
  • Of the solutions we can provide a cargo carrier like the MaxxTow part # MT70107 that you referenced would be an excellent choice. You will need to do some modifications to get the tanks to securely attach to the carrier in an upright position, and that is something I won't be able to tell you exactly how to do. But this carrier has a 500 lb capacity so it would work well assuming you have a hitch on your vehicle that has a tongue weight capacity that is higher than the weight of this carrier...

  • Ladder Rack Height for MaxxTow and Erickson Ladder Racks for a 2006 GMC Canyon
  • If you check out the picture I attached of the MaxxHaul Truck Bed Ladder Rack # MT70386 installed you can see that this rack sits very tall on the back of the truck. The overall height is 45 inches. For a lower height ladder rack that is also cost-effective the Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07706 has been confirmed as a fit for your 2006 GMC Canyon with a 5 foot bed and only sits 33-1/2 inches tall.

  • Fit of MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier # MT70275 on 2008 Mazda CX-9
  • Because a cargo carrier is not a vehicle specific item, we do not have it listed in our fitguide, which will explain why you did not find it when you ran your vehicle. When we installed a hitch on a 2008 CX-9, we found that the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the rear bumper was between 4-3/4 and 5 inches. Since the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier you referenced provides 8-1/2 inches of clearance, it will fit your CX-9 just fine. Although the carrier itself...

  • Best Cargo Carrier with Ramp Recommendation for a Ford F250 for Landscaping Business
  • For your Ford F250 you will probably want the biggest carrier available, with the highest capacity and the longest ramp for your landscaping business. For that I would recommend the MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier with Ramp part # MT70275. This carrier has a 500 lb capacity with dimensions of 30 inches by 50 inches, a 60 inch ramp and is made of aluminum to resist corrosion. The only difference between it and the # MT70106 that you referenced is the length of the ramp and it is a steel...

  • The MaxxTow # MT70233 that you referenced is a universal style design that attaches to the inside of a bed rail. If you check out the video link I attached you will see exactly how it installs. According to Maxxtow this will fit your 2006 Nissan Titan if it has the factory track system in the bed.

  • What is the Hitch Ball Height Above Ground with the MaxxTow Trailer Dolly # MT70225
  • The top of the 1-7/8-inch hitch ball included with the MaxxTow Trailer Dolly, part # MT70225, sits 17-inches above ground level. This dolly can be used to move trailers with any size coupler, even those larger than the included 1-7/8-inch hitch ball size. It offers a substantial 600-lb tongue weight capacity, making it suitable for use with a broad range of trailers.
