I know of an alum ramp that folds in the middle ( not sure of dimensions ) a lawnie in Syd uses it. He was struggling a little getting his honda up a set of stairs at the rear of property so i suggested why not lay your ramp over them He was rapt.

 

Here,s a video of him.

I used to live in Pitt water at Whale Beach. Multi million dollar properties and they all pretty much get mulched.

"Can't" is a dirty 4 letter word.
If someone says "Can't" , take the "T" off the end and brew in boiling water.
Sip on your 'T, relax, and take a look at what you've got left to work with.

Try whipps aluminum ramps they might be able to custom make a set of ramps for you. I use a set of their ramps to load my ztrs they are very well made and built.

nice setup smokey , today I purchased an 2004 Isuzu 4x4 3 metre steel tray now I gotta set this up work out where to put the brushcutters and get some ramps made. I was thinking maybe investing in some electric ramps from austlift can be installed on the rear or side

Nice choice and set up these trucks in the 4x4 model are unstopable if you plan to use it for 4wding. All our rural fireies use them and love em.

As for ramps I would look at a good set of aluminium ramps rather than a electric or hydro Set up. Simply because if it was to fail you can't load and unload your machinery but that's just my view so hope it's not out of line.

if you go down the path of ramps whipps make some excellent ramps im running them at the moment and love them not cheap but money well spent.

Cheers,
Smokey

With the extra height of the 4x4 you might need ''long'' ramps
