    Yep exactly. Except homemade.

    Not as HD and certainly not as expensive! $1200!!! Ouch!

    Also does not have to have adjustable width.

    And now I know what they are called: Lawn Mower Adapters.

    Thanks!

    Ability to drive over it. Obviously it's going to have to be something heavier duty.

    Plus the advantage of the type on my post #13 is that it would also be useful for small car that sometimes a pain to find a hard point. Use that platform cover a good part of it with that 3/4" hard rubber mat from Tractor Supply (horse stall mat) and lift away. Another advantage is that the structure is oriented front-back vs. side-to-side, so it won't interfere with anything in the center of the vehicle.
