Hey guys........I've got a utility trailer, flatbed, and need some new ramps for it.
Up till now, I used 2X8" fir, 5 feet long, with some aluminum pre-made angle type attachments. (JC Whitney, hard to explain).
Anyway, I've heard that you "should" be able to make something out of metal with the same strength of wood, but 2/3 lighter....
These ramps have to support a golf cart (1000 lbs), plus be moveable so I can run my handtruck and stuff up with different width frames.....
I've looked at a lot of designs, but draw a blank on this one.
I'm no engineer, but every design I can think up will weigh MORE than the fir...
Anybody got a good idea on how to design these things?
Thanks for any experience with this stuff!!
(BTW), I really want to be able to attach the ramps to the back, as a tailgate, when not in use)
