by:

Like other people say “ we need to do some work to secure the base” also the O ring by the lock is really fragile”
Very heavy and this is a 2 people work to connect to your hitch. Made in CHINA
I will drill another hole to the other side of the bracket to make sure is safe when You drive bumpy roads.




by:

So far I'm gonna rate it as 4* because I haven't used it yet, just put it together and test fit things. The carrier comes in one box, the ramp must be optional, because it comes in another box. Putting it together, I didn't have any of the problems some did where the grate would cover the bolt holes, so that wasn't an issue. I may put down a thin sheet of steel or something on the bottom, just so the bottom doesn't bow out when I haul heavier things. Not saying it will, but thought I heard some say theirs started to after a while.

The assembly was easy, I did it by myself, took my time. All hardware was included, which was nice. The only thing I didn't like, which I might change, was the hardware for the clip that keeps the ramp in place. The self-tapping screws didn't really screw that well, I suspect they stripped. The clip itself is kinda flimsy, but it works.

I plan on using this to snowblow mainly. The ramp is nice and the whole carrier is nice and wide, plenty of room to fit the 28" Ariens on there. Plenty of holes to mount stuff, ratchet clips, etc. I'd like to think of a way to mount some legs or something on it, because it's heavy and hard to move. To get it off the receiver, I put it on jackstands. Would be nice if a bolt-on method could be made available to help w/ install/removal and storage.




by:

Like some of the previous reader comments, I would agree that two of the bolts simply do not work as given because the carrier's mesh base interferes when trying to tighten the screws (see image of bolt hole). I had to purchase 2 replacement bolts that had a flat edge by the bolt head (see image of two bolts - 3/8" original on top and replacement on bottom). Once they are in, though, things look pretty good. The reflective tape is angled and does seem flimsy but I purchased some new tape at the local Home Depot.

One other item to note is that the pull pin does not do a good job of engaging with the clip. It seems to me as though a bungee cord or strap would be used to hold the ramp in place so that it doesn't fall down because you really can't rely on the pin.

I haven't had a chance to take it on the road yet but I did connect it to my vehicle's hitch, loaded my snow thrower, and it seems to be a good purchase so far.


Comments
My vehicle was rear-ended last month, ruining the hitch among other damages. Luckily the carrier was not attached.I felt the carrier worked well for what use I got out of it. Im planning to buy a new vehicle and hitch and continue using it.

I like this carrier as it is the biggest size platform I could find for my 30" snowblower that I carry. I also used it to transport my 33" walkbehind lawnmower. Attaching it on your own can be done as I manage on my own, the only complaint I have is with the door ramp, the latch I fabricated to be used with a pin so it latches securely, otherwise the one that comes with it, it unlatches it self while driving which was unsafe. I prefered to have it securely held in place by a real pin through a hole I drilled to keep the door secure. Otherwise this hitch carrier gets the job done!




by:

Well the cargo carrier got here a little late due to our weather but arrived in great condition. When I was assembling it there were 2 washers missing and the self tapping screws did not work. Soi went to HD to get the parts I needed . While I was there I picked up some urethane washers to help keep the paint on where the Ramp connects to the tray and where the ramp folds in half. I thought this would help in keeping it looking good and help in keeping it from rattling when going down the road. The self tapping screws were a joke and after trying to get them to work I gave up and bought regular metal screws. I will probably change the bolts to SS after these start to rust. The unit looks and feels pretty sturdy so I am planning on a test run tomorrow when we get our next snow storm..




by:

The 5 star rating is based on fast delivery and ease of assembly. I haven't had a chance to test it out in the field, I just received it today, Dec 11.
Our 28" Ariens snowblower fits perfectly and there were no issues with loading it. I've been proactive and following the advice of other reviewers and added a bungee to better hold the ramp in place when driving. It seems solid enough for what we need it for. Others complained about the holes not lining up, I did not have that issue. It took less than an hour to fully assemble the carrier.
The reflective tape fell off before I got the thing put together and I agree with others that the mechanism to hold the ramp in the up position could use some improvement but overall for the price and size, this is what we needed to get the snowblower out of the back of the truck. I'll be adding reflectors and driveway markers on the back corners so I can see it in the rear view mirror. I would recommend this product to anyone that needs to haul a snowblower. We will also use it to transport our 5500W generator that's on wheels. One man can now load.




by:

The spring loaded lock mechanism does not fit in the arm that raises up to hold the ramps in the up position. The opening of the arm where the silver spring loaded thing is not cut deep enough. i had to tie the ramp up with rope in order to keep it up




by:

Very good product, the ramp makes it handy for transporting heavy wheeled items like lawn mowers, rototillers, etc. Only thing related to quality is that all of the warning stickers fell off within the first month. The carrier's weight makes it difficult for one person to remove or install it, I plan on making a small dolly to store it and move it to my car's hitch for installation/removal. In the meantime, I take off the ramp when installing or removing, that makes it light enough for me to deal with.

Still working fine after one year.

Here is a picture of my snow blower on the carry rack I bought from you guys awhile back. I couldn't be happier, thank you.

Rating = Excellent (*).
The overall,
good, bad & other.
Overall : solid and performs as advertised. I put my Ariens 30" snow blower on the Carrier while it was attached to my F250. Same for my Earthquake Shredder / chipper and a Husquavrna Walk Behind 20" weed wacker. Used two of these at a recent job. All items fit and work on this carrier. You might have to make you own mods IMHO for your specific needs. The key to this I discovered is securing whatever you are hauling. I have a variety of items. Each item is different. Some are top heavy (chipper) and others not at all.
(BAD#1) So I added my own attachment points to the FLOOR of the ramp. Items won't tip or fall if you have the axle pinned down. Those attachments were found at the hardware store for a few dollars. The holes in the frame of the Carrier designed to secure equipment are good but since the holes are on the outer frame it's difficult to really hold the item steady / ie: pin down the axles. Especially so if on bumpy terrain. I used a combination of bungee cords and ratchet type tie downs. (BAD #2) I noticed when I put the snow blower on the carrier for the first time that the screened floor of the carrier and ramp gave way slightly. You can see that the webbing of the carrier is not the thickest steel. I think with some weathering & use that the screened floor(s) will prematurely break where the most weight is laying. I added plywood to the ramp and some PT 2x6 where the tires will be on the floor. Very Solid now. HOWEVER, it weighs more too as a result. Even without the added weight, (Not Good vs bad) It's difficult to man handle on/off the vehicle. I added one of those wooden rolling furniture dolleys to move it in my barn where I store it. If you plan to just leave the Carrier on your vehicle this is not an issue. If like me you want it on for whatever task and remove it, you will want some type of roller to move it wherever effortlessly. (BAD #4) The ramp locking device is so cheap, mine is already bent and unreliable and I used mine outside of testing at home only once. I added a bungee cord to the top of the ramp to the floor of the carrier when folded up so it doesn't dislodge while driving.
Good: glad I got this. Does exactly what I needed. You will have to entertain making your own specific modifications for what you will haul. Also in the good was it was an excellent step up to the bed of the pickup to grab the wood in it. That makes it a lot easier to off load or entering the truck bed being higher up. The tail gate will not lower with the ramp in the up position.
Other: one of the accessories is a stabilizer designed to limit the wiggle while in transport. I jammed a couple of wood shims in there and it accomplished the same thing. Necky sure but it works. I also have plans for it to be used at some of my competitive shooting events. I'll move supplies with it on the range and use it as a table for signing in to the events. It makes a good chair and table while out on the job / event too. Add your own worn out cushions from home. I'll add pics of it later. :)


Comments
fine. same opinion as initial summary 1 year ago. forgot to mention that another benefit is space in neighborhoods where too big a trailer or any trailer is a problem. with this cargo carrier, I can get my equipment to the job and back w/little worries about blocking a driveway or making a Uturn.
Woodsman - 01/29/2018

Love it! It is the perfect size, relatively easy to maneuver, easy to connect, and durable. Having the holes for straps to hook into centered on the sides would be a nice improvement.




by:

Giving this 4 stars because I haven't used it yet. Just built it and I'm impressed. It seems well made and sturdy. (Has some weight to it for sure) I'll be using this for a Push mower 30 inch. I haven't placed the mower onto it yet or placed this onto my truck hitch yet. I'm sure the mower is going to fit easily. Building it wasn't too bad. About 15 minutes or so. Shipping was quick. Comes in two boxes thankfully and is just regular shipping. Unlike some others the same size or larger, they need freight shipping which is a substantial price increase. Looking forward to using this for the upcoming season.


Comments
Still using the trailer and no major issues. Use it to haul a 150lb mower thats 30 inches wide and this trailer is perfect. 5 Stars for sure!!

Works good but you need to add a rattle hitch fastener. It makes it a lot stronger feeling.


Comments
Sorry that it is not included. Here is my favorite one: Item # e99007.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 09/14/2021


by:

Overall it functions well enough. A couple minor complaints; some of the fasteners have rusted. I think they should use stainless steel to improve this. I keep mine indoors 99% of the time and there is still some rust. Also, the locking mechanism that holds the ramp up doesn’t have a good enough engagement, so I use a bungy cord to make sure it stays up. That feature could be improved. But overall I am happy with the functionality.


Comments
Still working decent. Still 4 stars.

Great trailer, easy to assemble, and very well constructed. This fit the bill if you want the features that I did of a wider carrier to handle wider items (e.g. 30" snowblowers), and also a folding ramp. Most of the other hitch carriers seem to be limited at around 28" wide. All the hardware is there and good quality, although you'll likely need two sheet metal screws to replace the self tapping screws included in the kit.




by:

Warning: Be prepared to purchase your own carriage bolts (6) and additional washers. The issue is due to the poor attention to detail with where the mesh platform interferes with hole openings for the bolts. In fact one opening was covered by one of the mesh pieces which prevented the bolt from going through the hole. These bolts secure the two cross braces and the receiver bar. I had to go to the hardware store to buy the necessary hardware as I did not have have welder/grinder to remove the metal mesh from around the hole openings. Basically the bolts are squared off at the bottom and is supposed to 'nest' in the square platform opening. The metal mesh prevents this from happening (to all six openings).

Other gripes: The two reflective decals were already peeling and damaged right out of the box. The other miscellaneous decals came off right away. The two set screws for the ramp clip were challenging to screw into the bar and I am not sure how long they will stay 'set'. The ramp clip is made out of a very thin metal and I am expecting it to not last too long (I'll be sure to secure the ramp through another means).

Other comments: The size of the platform was what interested me. Plus having the ramp to load our snow blower and lawn mower. It seems pretty easy to remove the ramp if we want to use it as just a platform for additional storage. The construction seems sound even with the hardware issue. It fits snugly in our receiver. I am not surprised by the decal issue as I planned to put higher quality reflective decals on it anyway. I am glad in a way that I had to use other bolt hardware as I picked up higher quality hardware that I believe will last longer than the OEM hardware. I am also expecting to have to repaint this after a few years as I can already notice some wear points where the black finish is being rubbed away.

Overall, the attention to detail was poor but I am thankful that this product was on the market as it was pretty much the only size/design available that could meet my needs.




by:

This rack is a great product and I would recommend it! The rack and ramp are very well constructed and exactly as described.

I purchased this rack to load and haul my 28" Ariens snow blower, which weighs more than 300 lbs, on the back of my Jeep Grand Cherokee. This rack was the only one I found that was wide enough for my blower. The integrated ramp makes it easy to load the blower and the good quality of the rack allows the blower to remain very stable while travelling over the road. It works great!

Only two things to be aware of if you purchase this rack, first, it's a bit cumbersome for one person to connect because of the weight and connected ramp. Second, the mechanism to hold the ramp vertically while in transit is not dependable, but it's easy to fix by adding a bungee cord.

I highly recommend this product and would buy it again!




by:

Lots of space. The ramp is a little short for heavier items to wheel up but I manage with a 200lb stump grinder.




by:

Could not be more pleased with the carrier and ramp. It was easily assembled and met my transportation requirements for pressure washer and equipment hauling. This sturdy carrier promises to provide many years of outstanding service




by:

Way easier to assemble than I thought. Very sturdy and well built. I wish I had bought it sooner.
Thank you!

Super Carrier, this has been used to carry my all terrain wheel chair thousands of miles across the country. Still great as the day we took it out of the box
Daniel J - 06/20/2021


by:

I used this carrier all season for my mowing business it was the perfect size for my 28" cut mower. The ramp and platform has held up perfectly. I can say it has served me very well and I would buy another one. Good product great quality.




by:

I think it will serve my purpose even though I had to do some grinding on the tray floor so that the carriage bolts could be tightened. The square part of the bolt wouldn't seat in the opening of the tray because the floor material was in the way. The ramp will never stay upright with that supplied metal catch. It will have to be strapped during transit. It would be nice if the ramp would fold down all the way into the floor of the tray for storage. I'll see how it works for transporting my snow blower this winter. I have a feeling I would have been better off buying a small utility trailer, but we'll see. I was very satisfied with the prompt delivery.




by:

My only problem is the pin that holds the transporter closed does not fit the 2nd hole. The little side bump on it at the bottom will only go through the part it is attached to but not the piece of the gate. The hole is too small.




by:

Product came two days earlier than expected. I was told Monday and it arrived on Saturday.Between the cargo rack and ramp it took about an hour to put together. I modified some of the installation instructions to make it work. I had to flip the screws in the cargo box so they could tighten. The screws for the ramp I reversed for more clearance. The self tapping screws are not self tapping screws so you will need to pick those up. I it looks great and feels strong so should be well worth it. We shall see in time. I put it together by myself but recommend inviting a friend or spouse to give a helping hand.




by:

This hitch hauler is great for my mothers electric chair, now she feels comfortable everywhere the family goes. Easy assembly and seems to be built very well. Recommend it to any one that's in need of a hauler for all sorts of purposes!!
