Video Transcript for MaxxTow Cargo Carrier with Pivoting Ramp Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Maxxtow Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Ramp, part number MT70100. This hitch-mounted cargo carrier is perfect for carrying your wheelchairs, scooters, lawn mowers, snowblowers, or any other wheeled equipment you may have. The 500 pound weight capacity means it's going to have no problem with those heavy mobility scooters. The 40" by 27-3/4" ramp makes loading and unloading your gear easy. The wide slats are treaded, making it easier to roll your wheeled equipment up. When you're ready to travel it easily stows with the included pins and clips. The carrier itself measures 50" long by 29-1/2" on the outside.

On the inside it measures 47" by 27-3/4". It is 7-3/4" deep. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest point of the carrier measures about 8-3/4". From the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the carrier measures about 39". The open floor design offers stability, cradling our wheels. It's also going to prevent dirt and grime from building up.

It can just fall right through. The raised side rails offer numerous tie down locations. It also features four tie down loops. It features built in reflectors for increased visibility at night. It's made out of a lightweight aluminum, so it's going to be rust proof and hold up to the elements. Because it's lightweight you don't have to worry about it eating too much of your tongue weight.

Customers on our site are comparing this to the Pro Series Steel Solo Cargo Carrier. The Maxxtow features a larger platform with a higher weight capacity. The Pro Series is made out of a heavy duty steel, but because of that it's going to weigh more. Now that we've gone over the features I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. This is going to be for your 2" by 2" receivers only. It's not a bad idea to get an extra set of hands to load it up.

So I'll have somebody come in, we'll pick it up together and we'll slide it into our receiver tube, and line up our pinholes. Then we can take our included pin and clip, slide that through, and we're all set. To lower down our ramp we'll remove the two pins and clips. Now it's just as easy as wheeling our equipment up in place. You'll of course want to properly strap down anything that you're hauling. We have plenty of strap options right here at etrailer.com. This is our test course, let's start with the slalom. This shows side to side action, such as turning corners or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed bumps. This shows twisting action, such as hitting curbs, potholes, road debris, or uneven pavement. Last of all the solid speed bumps. This shows up and down action, such as driving through a parking lot, or parking garage, or driving in and out of a driveway. That's going to complete our look at the Maxxtow Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Ramp, part number MT70100.

Purchased this cargo carrier to transport my generator for my RV. Generator weighs about 150lbs very happy with purchase. Like a lot of other reviewers have said the box it came in was ripped but all the parts were there. Easy to assemble a little on the tedious side so be patient 582243

hardware supplied no good. nuts have interior rubber stop,so you can't tighten to secure. who is checking this??. may be nice product,but don't know yet until I buy all new hardware and see what goes wrong next. 172882

I could not be happier with this Cargo Carrier, Saturday we placed our 3500 KW Champion Generator on the platform. I shopped for this for this elsewhere and a few other website and your was the less expensive. I am very satisfied and it was a breeze to put together. I moved the carrier myself and my wife helped me place it on the Jayco Travel Trailer. My 4 brothers have seen it and I told them about your prices, plus 4 neighbors, and 4 brother in-laws. I promise I will promote your site every time anybody asks me where I got it so much respect. 613764

We purchased the cargo carrier as an experiment to haul around a paint machine we use to paint lines on our athletic fields. The grounds crew couldn't be happier with the combination of lightweight, function and overall ruggedness of the unit. 254144

Nice and lightweight so even a weaker person can lift it and put it on. Etrailer.com is awesome. UPS damaged the box and all the hardware was missing. Had it within 2 days from ETrailer! Great place, nice product. 562525

I use this product to haul around a heavy duty mobility scooter. The bottom steel brace has held up well to the abuse of carrying this load. Past carrier racks I have purchase would start to bend and sag after a couple of months of use. This is why it got 3 stars instead of 1. The sides of the rack have not held up very well at all. The plastic corner pieces are the weak points of this design the first time the scooter bumped against the end of the rack the plastic corner pieces gave way and the whole front broke off. I had to use some engineering to put a replacement on that would hold up. The other longer sides have bent outward and can make it difficult to get the pins in the holes but this is a minor issue. The pieces were also bent in some places when I received the box originally. None of the bent parts were going to affect the racks ability to bear the load so I did not worry about the hassle of trying to return the rack. Keep in mind that this product is aluminium so it is soft and will "dimple" if you tighten the assembly parts too tight. The ramp is just a few inches too short for easy loading and unloading of my particular scooter. It will high-center if there is a change in angle of the car but that is due to the length of the scooter base and not just this product. 635762

Excellent service. No hassle ordering, product arrived quickly and without damage. Easy to assemble. I'm very impressed and will order from you in the future. 120828

Was purchased to move a walk behind snow blower around the borough. lived up to all expectations. and is easy for one man to install and uninstall on truck. gave four stars because the railings make it a tight fit. But it is manageable. great product for the money, and shipping was super fast. 392652

The cargo carrier is sturdier and beefier than I thought it would be, which is good. Assembly was straight forward. A previous reviewer commented on how easy it was to strip out the bolt heads and that was a good heads up. I snugged the bolts using the screwdriver and did the final tightening using the wrench on the nut and no bolt heads were stripped. I am planning on using the carrier to haul my 5 HP two stage snowblower and when I loaded it up after assembly the machine fit perfectly. This carrier is about 40lbs lighter than the equivalent steel carrier and I was able to maneuver it into my SUV's hitch with no problem. Recommend buying an anti rattle device to further secure the carrier to the hitch. I can recommend buying this carrier. 112736

Overall i believe its a good product. It looks as pictured on-line. It took me about 3 hours to put it together, and I did that by myself. The instructions were pretty good, and the pictures within the instructions were useful. 99305



- MT70100
by:

A little tedious and the instructions were somewhat lacking however, if you are fairly mechanically minded, it is not too tough to figure out. The product arrived in good shape and in less than a week from ordering. It would be nice if the ramp was detachable or would fold flat for storage. I intend to buy some lynch-pins the size of the hinge bolts to be able to quickly remove the ramp and fold the ramp inside the rack for storage. It is also helpful to read some of the other comments to assist in assembly and to prevent stripping threads. 457212

This item is easy to build and install. I bought this product for my snow thrower - MTD 24" Two-Stage with Electric Start. It fit my snow thrower, but I have to undo the handle (of my snow thrower) to make it fit for transporting. Prefer to make the length of the trailer little bit longer. 110780


Comments

Try reversing the snow blower in and have the handles over the opposite side then you wouldnt have to remove the handles

Product was bent in some areas ( maybe during shipping ) nothing a hammer couldn't fix , but still kinda disappointed , Need very small fingers to assemble some of the washers and bolts ( hard to get to ) some parts seem to be kinda flimsy ... Still think this will be a good fit for what I'm looking for , shipping was fast ( did 3 day) ordering on the phone was fast and easy , Reps were really nice and helpful ... 427004

I purchased this unit in the fall of 2013. I have found it very handy, especially to transport my 10hp, 28" wide snow blower several times, which was my primary intent. I had the same issues with packaging that others have, particularly the trailer hitch poking through the carton. The corners were susceptible to damage also, while I found a few blemishes, a couple of small dings, nothing worth making an issue out of. Anyone with some mechanical inclination can work around these little things. After assembly you can see how it fits the snow blower. The intake is up on the left side rail and the handles fit through the openings in the ramp perfectly. Overall I would recommend it, 4 out of 5 stars. Good value. 237538

Inside Diameter Is Only 47/ 28 inches not what is advertised. Easy to assemble. pins to hold up the ramp are to big I put thinner pins in works better. 124154

Received replacement cargo carrier in good time. Box was well reinforced. The steel support had come loose in the box and caused some damage, but was able to straighten rail. It took about 2 hours to put together. Everything was in the package and directions were excellent. Installed carrier on my old work horse of a truck. Have already used it to transport push mower and gas cans. Decided to use the locking part of my trailer hitch instead of the one provided. Exactly what I was looking for. 514691

Nicely made unit although it could benefit from: 1) stronger top rail supports; 2) better 2" receiver tube fit (too loose); 3) improved ramp fasteners (for flexible ease of use); 4) inside free dimension of top rail expanded out to match inside free dimension of bottom tray (inches matter); and 5) better packaging for shipment. While listed as an "aluminum" carrier the unit has a steel, core backbone (draw bar & mounting plate for aluminum deck). This steel component gives a sturdy base and contributes to a large percentage of the weight. Unit was received with dented/bent top rail (but not enough to warrant return) due to failed component restraints (nylon cable ties) that allowed the heavy steel base component to shift in packaging and dent.bend top rail. Hitch "draw bar" is loose in 2" receiver and results in excessive rocking of the deck. Much improved with an anti-rattle or silent hitch pin that draws it close to one side of the tube. Since unit mounts with a rear edge at about 3 ft, from bumper I've over- engineered some modifications to include additional conspicuity reflectors and 1" LED trailer lights to try & keep tailgaters at bay and augment tow vehicle taillights. Also added non-slip material to the aluminum ramp treads. It's a "BMW" carrier now. Regardless of the shortcomings, this is a nice product that will serve well, when the work simply doesn't justify hauling around a trailer. 111937

The product is good, easy to assemble, its the packaging that is a problem!! Hardware bag had broken. 10 fasteners and the hitch pin had fallen out of one of the 6 holes in the box. 3 areas had minor dents and an end cap was damaged. I simply purchased the fasteners and hitch pin to avoid the inconvenience of sending it back. According to reviews I read prior to ordering, chances are, the replacement package would be just as bad. Come on MaxxTow, I will pay 5$ more for more reliable packaging!! 455090

I got it assembled but there was a lot of damage to the unit. The box was a wreck, some parts were bent, one of the reflectors on the corner was broke and 2 holes for the screws were ripped.

So far this thing has been great. My shipment arrived quickly - and with everything that was supposed to be included. I'd say it took about 1.25 hours or so to put together...including some breaks and searching around for a dropped nut and bolt. Overall it was simple to build. I like it because of the weight. I purchased so I could move a rotor tiller between my house and my parents. The thing is light enough for me to move around by myself. Ramp feature is helpful. Now I don't have to go rent a trailer from someplace each time I need to move the rototiller, lawnmower, snowblower, etc. 380234

The cargo carrier is not very sturdy but more disappointing is that the ramp does not fit squarely on the ground. Also, even though we followed all the directions the ramp is very difficult to fasten and unfasten. The holes on the ramp and base do not match up. It takes both a screwdriver and wire players to attach the ramp to the carrier. We needed the carrier for transportation of a motorized wheel chair. I would not recommend this carrier for this use. 144495

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Hitch Cargo Carrier on 2015 Buick Encore for Mobility Scooter
  • For your 2015 Buick Encore you can haul a 90 lb scooter when using the correct parts. I recommend starting with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36554. This is a class II hitch which has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening and is rated for up to 300 lbs tongue weight. I then recommend the hitch expander # C45785 which will reduce your tongue weight to 150 lbs but when used with the MaxxTow 27x47 Cargo Carrier w/ Pivoting Ramp # MT70100 which weights 54 lbs, when you add your 90 lb...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Lightweight Hitch-Mount Wheelchair Carrier
  • MaxxTow's 30x50 Ramped Cargo Carrier # MT70100 weighs 55-lbs; this is the lightest ramped carrier we offer. If you do not need a ramp on the carrier then you do have other options that are lighter, and some of these carriers will fit both 2-inch and 1-1/4-inch hitches. For example, Curt 17x46 Cargo Carrier # C18145 weighs only 28-lbs and fits both hitch sizes. You will want to note the capacity of your trailer hitch before you select a carrier. There should be a safety sticker on...

  • Will MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Anti-Tilt Bracket Fit Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch?
  • The MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier, # MT70100, is designed to fit 2" x 2" trailer hitches, so it will fit with Hidden Hitch trailer hitches as long as they are 2" x 2". Anti-tilt brackets are also designed to fit by size, so a product such as the MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp for 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers, # MT70258, would work with a 2" Hidden Hand trailer hitch. I have included links to videos of both the cargo carrier and anti-rattle clamps for you.

  • Steel or Aluminum Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Transporting an Aluminum Cargo Carrier
  • Since you are planning on transporting a snow blower you would definitely want the aluminum carrier part # MT70100 over the steel one part # MT70106. The reason I say this is that if you are transporting a snow blower there is going to be salt on the roads. Salt has little to no effect on aluminum but will cause steel to corrode quickly. Check out the review video I attached for the # MT70100.

  • Assembly of Maxx Tow Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier # MT70100
  • The vertical supports that are around the Maxx Tow cargo carrier # MT70100 are supposed to be on the outside of the frame. This is also how it is pictured on the images provided by Maxx Tow. For this particular carrier, it does not seem to matter if they are on the inside or outside. They would be less likely to interfere with cargo on the platform if mounted on the outside.

  • Lightweight Options for Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier With a Ramp
  • We do have some cargo carriers that include a ramp which are lighter than the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106 that you referenced, but if you are needing a carrier that includes a ramp, they are a little heavier due to the extra weight of the ramp. We have 2 different aluminum cargo carriers that are the same dimensions and include ramps; you will just need to figure out how much ramp length they will need for easy loading of the wheelchair. The 27x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for Winnebago Minnie Winnie Class C Motorhome
  • I do have an option for you, however I did check with MaxxTow and they do not recommend using the 27x47 Cargo Carrier # MT70100 that you referenced behind a motorhome. Its aluminum construction isn't designed to withstand the extra bounce and movement that it would experience when attached to the rear of an RV like your Winnebago Minnie Winnie. A better option will be with the Curt 24x60 Cargo Carrier # C18152. This carrier features a sturdier steel construction and a fixed shank that...

  • Using a Cargo Carrier and Towing a Trailer at the Same Time
  • Trailer hitch mounted cargo carriers are not designed to have something attached to the back of them. The problem is that it would put tremendous stress on the hitch receiver and would damage it and the vehicle but I do have a possible solution for you. You could potentially use # D210. The receiver part has a 350 pound capacity so the combined weight of the cargo carrier and cargo would have to be less than that. And the combined tongue weight of the trailer tongue weight and the cargo...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And Cargo Carrier For 2013 Kia Soul
  • The MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier w/ Pivoting Ramp - 2" Hitches - Extruded Aluminum - 500 lbs # MT70100 is most likely not big enough for your application. The inside dimensions are 47" long x 27-3/4" wide x 7-1/2" deep. It also has a 2 inch receiver shank, so it won't work with your 2013 Kia Soul. The trailer hitch receiver I recommend for your 2013 Kia Soul is the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver Class I - 1-1/4" # 24839. This will have a maximum tongue weight of 200 lbs...

  • 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.

  • 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. ...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2001 Chrysler Town and Country to Use with Wheelchair Carrier
  • The Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 75119 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2001 Chrysler Town and Country. This is a Class III hitch that features a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds, which sounds like it will be more than enough for the combined weight of your wheelchair/scooter and carrier. With this in mind, you will also need to verify the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle itself, as you will always be limited by your weakest component....

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier To Carry A Small 4 Wheeler
  • The MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier w/ Pivoting Ramp - 2" Hitches - Extruded Aluminum - 500 lbs, # MT70100, will work to haul whatever you need as long as the weight capacity and dimensions fit. You of course will be limited by the tongue weight capacity of your vehicle and the hitch you use as well. I pulled up your Kawasaki prairie 360 online and the wet weight is listed at 643.9 lbs. If this is accurate for your 4 wheeler, we don't have a cargo carrier that will handle that weight.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Light Weight Trailer Hitch Cargo Carrier on 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Spare Tire
  • The lightest trailer hitch cargo carrier with a ramp we have is the MaxxTow 30x50 # MT70100. It has 8-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier which is enough to get passed your spare tire. That is assuming you have the stock sized spare tire. if you have a larger spare tire there could still be an issue. I've included a video of the carrier installed on a 97 Wrangler that shows the clearance. It isn't the exact same as your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited but...
