My dad used a Harbor Freight lift in the bed of his truck. He quickly found that he needed a steel plate on the top and under the bed. With the boom extended it was real easy to bend the floor of the truck bed.

We hit a homerun ! ! !

Yesterday we went to a Harbor Freight store about 1/2 hour from where we live. I have never been to one before. I had no idea this operation existed.

YIKES ! ! ! ---- What a candy store they are.

We wound up with 6 foot, 9 inch wide tri-fold pickup truck ramps.

I could not believe the price. They even took time as to where I could mount my 2000 lb hand winch in the pickup and directed me into a set of front wheels to bolt up to the generator. The generator has rear wheels on it now.

Staggering----Quality and less than $100 in total (way less).----Even I can do the mounting and modifications that are needed.

Also, an unintended bonus---My lawn tractor can be handled by these ramps when it is time for it to be serviced. No more renting a trailer.

Thanks again Board Peeeeeples,

John

I use an engine hoist to get heavy items into my pick up bed. Maybe one of your friends has one of these?
