Review of the MaxxTow 30X50 Wheelchair Carrier


Today were going to be taking a look at the MaxxTow 30 x 50 cargo carrier with a 48 inch long ramp for 2-inch hitches rated at 500 pounds, number MT70106. This MaxxTow cargo carrier is a great way to transport mobility wheel chairs, scooters, snow blowers, lawn and garden equipment and other similar cargo. Its also a great way to help keep muddy items from dirtying up the interior of your vehicle. The cargo carrier is made of a sturdy steel construction and has a corrosion resistant black powder coat finish. It has a weight capacity of 500 pounds and comes with a 90 day warranty. Well now go ahead and show you how to install it onto the vehicle.

Now this carrier is kind of heavy so you may need an extra set of hands when lifting it into your hitch. Well slide the shank of the carrier into the opening of the hitch. Well line up the holes in the hitch with the holes in the shank of the cargo carrier and then well slide in our pin and secure it with a clip on the other side. Then take the anti-rattle mechanism and push it up towards the hitch. Loosen up the silver bolt on top to slide this over the shank.

Now with the silver part over the receiver end of the hitch and the front part of the shank, we can tighten down these silver bolts using a wrench to further tighten them down. Now with both of our bolts tightened down, well take these nuts thread them down through the top portion of our anti-rattle device to help prevent the bolts from coming loose. Well then use a wrench to tighten them down. Well now go ahead and pull the silver pin at the base of the carrier to tilt the platform down. Well then replace the pin back into the top hole.

Well now go ahead and fold out the ramp. Well pull out the silver pins on each end of the cargo carrier. Now theres a built-in handle on the back side of the ramp that we can use to pull up and you can see the mesh floor in the bottom of the ramp as well at the platform of the cargo carrier to allow your wheeled items to roll up easy and prevent build-up of mud and dirt and debris. This cargo carrier also has raised rails up here around three-fourths of the cargo carrier to help keep your gear in place and also these holes which give you the versatility of hooking ratchet straps, bungee cords, and rope to secure your gear. Now on the front side of the cargo carrier are two red reflectors on the left and right-hand side to keep your precious items safe from other drivers.

Now that weve gone over some of the special features of the MaxxTow railed cargo carrier and showed you how to install it onto the vehicle, well go ahead and show you how to load up an item. With that in place we can pull our ramp up. Well then take these support bars and there is special holes on the rail of the cargo carrier right here and well thread in the pin through both of those holes and secure it with a clip on the other side. Well then repeat the same process for the other support bar. Now with our ramp all folded up well go ahead and strap down our lawn mower and show you how it looks driving down the road. Now with our lawn mower unloaded, well go ahead and bring the ramp, fold it back in again using that nice nifty handle to help close it. Well reinstall the support bars and then well go ahead and give you another view on how the cargo carrier performs with it folded up when not in use. If you dont have anything on the cargo carrier it can fold flush up against the vehicle. Now there is some wobble when it is folded up so were going to use a strap to help keep the ramp from swinging back and damaging your vehicle. Well then pull the pin here which will allow us to fold it up nicely against the vehicle. Well then replace the pin at the bottom. And that will do it for the review of the MaxxTow ramped cargo carrier with a 48 inch long ramp rated at 500 pounds, part number MT70106. .
