I have had a '18 and '20 foot trailer for years and have recently purchased a small 8 x 10 unit for collecting brush/small limbs on the place and to also trailer my riding lawn mower to our weekend place. It has a 4x8 mesh ramp on the rear that folds in the middle when stowed in the up position the rear unit is only 2x8 feet. The good news is that this hinged rear ramp is very well made. The bad news is that it is very, very heavy and folding it out once and then letting the whole unit to the ground is a huge pain. I am no weakling but it is a chore. I never tried to manually open the ramp at the dealership because it never dawned on me that a metal mesh ramp would be so heavy. I am at a loss as what I might do to make it easier to open and close. Any ideas?
