Expert Answers about MaxxTow

  • Largest Available Hitch-Mount Ramped Cargo Carrier for 2-Inch Hitch
  • A good first step in considering your best option in a ramped cargo carrier is a check of your hitch's tongue weight rating, which should be indicated on its safety/warning sticker. This is the maximum weight the hitch can support and the combined weight of the cargo carrier you choose, plus what you load on it, must be within the hitch limit. If your cargo loads will get close to the hitch's limit then a lighter weight aluminum carrier may indeed be a good choice. Here are the key stats...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Spare Tire Carrier Options for Cargo Trailer with 6 Inch Tall Frame
  • Since we don't have any frame mount spare tire carriers that can mount to a 6 inch tall trailer frame, we will need to consider other possible mounting options for a spare tire carrier. If your cargo trailer is enclosed, you an use a mount like the Rackem Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers # RA-16. A similar option is the use a section of Vertical E-Track # E19146 with the Rackem Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track # RA-16HST. Either of these options will mount to the wall of the enclosed...

  • Ground Clearance When Using MaxxTow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount MT70380 in Lowest Position
  • I went to our warehouse to measure the MaxxTow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # MT70380 for the specific ground clearance dimension you asked about. When the 2-inch ball is positioned at its lowest point (for maximum drop) then the bottom of the other ball, the 2-5/16-inch size, will be 12-inches below the top of the shank that fits into your receiver tube.

  • 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...

  • Clearance Measurement On Jeep Wrangler Unlimited With Rear Mounted Spare Tire
  • You will want to take a couple of measurements on your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to determine the clearance. The MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier, part # MT70100 measures 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier. The sides measure 8 inches in height. The distance from the top of the shank to the top of the side on the cargo carrier is 9-1/2 inches. I have attached a couple of photos of this carrier that show those dimensions I mentioned. To...

  • Inner Dimensions of the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70275 With Ramp in Vertical Position
  • I spoke with my contact at MaxxTow and found that the inner dimensions of the MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier, # MT70275, is 47 inches long by 27-1/2 inches wide with the ramp in the vertical position. I have attached a photo showing these dimensions.

  • Will the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70275 Fit on a 2011 Honda Pilot Without Hatch Interference
  • I do not think you will have any interference problems with the rear hatch of your 2011 Honda Pilot and the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier, # MT70275, other than the ramp. We have not had the chance to test this MaxxTow carrier on a Pilot before, but to be sure, we can do some measuring. Starting at the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch, measure rearward 8-1/2 inches. At that distance, the side walls of this carrier will extend upward 7 inches from the top of the trailer hitch...

  • Distance Between Ramp Slats On MaxxTow Cargo Carrier MT70100
  • The distance between the slats on the MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier, part # MT70100 is 2-3/4 inches. The distance between the rails on the carrier measures 27-3/4 inches. The interior length of the carrier is 47 inches. Since a sheet of plywood is 24 inches x 48 inches, you would need to cut off an inch from the end. It would leave a gap on each side but will cover most of the floor of the carrier. I have attached a photo of the carrier with the dimensions noted you can check out.

  • Replacement Tires for Trailer Dolly w/ 4.10/3.50-6 Tire
  • Take a look at the Replacement Wheel for MaxxTow Trailer Dolly, # MT70225-1. This replacement wheel has a 1 inch wheel hub bore and a 4.10/3.50-6 tire. This is our only option for that size of tire.

  • 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,...

  • Recommended Ramps for Loading a Snow Blower
  • If the snow blower isn't self-propelled, the # MT70144 ramps you mentioned wouldn't be the best choice. It would be pretty difficult to push a snow blower up a ramp that doesn't have a solid surface. Something like the Erickson folding ramps, part # EM07464-2 would work much better for you, as it would be much easier to push a snow blower up the heavy duty grating that makes up the ramp surface. I really like the way the ramps fold up for easy storage. The ramps feature integrated handles...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Transporting a 30 inch Wide Snowblower
  • You would need something wider, check out the 32x48 Pro Series Steel Solo Cargo Carrier # PS10401-10402. This carrier is slightly wider to fit your 30 inch wide snow blower and has a loading ramp. This carrier has a floor dimension of 31-3/4 inches wide by 47-3/4 inches long which you would want to compare to the dimensions of your snow blower. Check out the review video I attached for this product. The useable dimensions of the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 is only 28...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier to Carry Snow Blower with 2011 Dodge Ram
  • The MaxxTow carrier you mentioned has an inside-the-rails dimension of 48 x 28 inches. Your blower might fit, but it would be a very tight fit. The carrier is relatively inexpensive, and would be best suited for occasional use. A carrier like the Pro Series # PS10401-10402 would be a much better choice. The carrier is very highly rated by our customers, and the roomy 47-3/4 inch long x 31-3/4 inch wide carrier platform would easily handle both the size and the weight of your snow blower. The...

  • Weight of MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106
  • The MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier you referenced, part # MT70106 weighs approximately 85 lbs. The carrier is designed for 2 inch receivers, and has a 500 lb capacity, but you will be limited to the tongue weight capacity of the hitch if it is lower.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Compatibility of MaxxTow Wheel Chock # MT70075 with 2011 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic
  • As long as the tire is not any wider than 5-1/2 inches, the MaxxTow Adjustable Wheel Chock will work great for you. If you click the provided link, you can see a copy of our return policy. I have linked you to a product demonstration video, as well as a video showing the chock being installed.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The Best Trailer Hitch for 2012 Ford Escape to Use Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • For your 2012 Ford Escape I recommend Curt trailer hitch # 13650. When installed on a 2012 Ford Escape we found that it measured 1 inch from the center of hitch pin hole to the back of the bumper. I have linked a video showing installation and the measurement for you. The MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70260 measures 4-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier when folded up. This means that it will clear the rear bumper on your 2012 Ford Escape....

  • Aluminum Ramped Hitch Cargo Carrier that Will Fit 28-Inch Wide Snow Blower
  • We do offer a hitch-mount ramped aluminum carrier # MT70100 from MaxxTow but its internal width is just shy of the 28-inches you need. Its inside width dimension is 27-3/4-inches and its internal length is 47-inches. This carriers fits 2-inches hitches. If this width is not quite enough for your machine you can use the linked page to review all of our ramped hitch carriers. Click on your hitch size and class to see compatible ramped carriers.

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation For Carrying Snow Blower On 2006 Subaru Forester
  • I did some online research on your 2006 Subaru Forester and found that the maximum towing capacity is 2400 lbs. When considering a hitch mounted cargo carrier, you are allowed about 10 percent of the maximum towing capacity, and that includes the weight of the cargo carrier along with the cargo. This means that your total weight capacity for a cargo carrier and its cargo would total about 240 lbs. You will want to check the owners manual for the actual towing capacity of your vehicle. ...

  • Recommendation for a Removable Wheel Chock
  • The mounting hardware included with the MaxxTow adjustable wheel chock, # MT70075, is designed for a permanent installation. However we do have several wheel chocks that are considered removable because of how they mount. We have TowRax chock # TWSPWM, # TWSPWC, and # TWSPWC3BT. These chocks have a keyhole shape opening where the large end fits around a bolt head. When the bolt is tightened down on the skinny end it cannot be removed. When the hardware is loosened, the chock can be slid...

  • Using MaxxTow Trailer Dolly # MT70225 to Move Pop-Up Camper
  • Moving trailers for short distances is exactly what a trailer dolly like the # MT70225 was designed for. As long as the trailer tongue weight does not exceed 600 lbs, the # MT70225 would be an excellent choice for moving your trailer.

  • Can a High/Low Adapter be Used to Tow Pintle Hook Trailer With Standard 2-Inch Hitch
  • Since the height of your pintle-equipped military trailer is so much greater than the height of the hitch on your Honda Pilot (possibly as much as 2 feet) I am not sure there is any way to keep the trailer level when hitched. We do not offer an adapter that can make up this substantial height difference. I suggest you check your Honda Pilot owners manual to confirm the vehicle tow rating. Tow ratings can vary by model year and based on the specific equipment set in your Pilot. You want...
