Loading a snowmobile into your truck and then unloading it when you are ready to ride is no small task and sometimes unrealistic to do by yourself. Snowmobiles are heavy, and most traditional ramps can be relatively easy to make a mistake on, which can end in a disaster. Every year, too many snowmobile riders experience a disconnecting ramp or an incorrect tread angle that results in an accident. Snowmobiles are on average over 500 pounds and they are not easy to pick up or move, so using a ramp is the only way to load them up for transport. Traditional ramp failures can lead to damaging your truck, your snowmobile, or even worse – yourself. This is why the MAD-RAMPS Snowmobile Kit as the best solution for loading and unloading a snowmobile. With the MAD-RAMPS Snowmobile Kit, the process is quick, easy, and most of all, safe.
Traditional Snowmobile Loading Ramps
When using a traditional ramp, many snowmobile riders may end up using an ATV ramp, however, a snowmobile tread performs differently than wheels and won’t easily ride over the surface of the ATV ramp. Many ramps are designed to sit on top of your tailgate and over-revving a snowmobile can result in the ramp kicking back during loading since the treads of a snowmobile are going to grip the ramp surface quite a bit.
Traditional snowmobile ramps require securing the ramp to your vehicle before driving on. When riders miss this crucial step in an exhausted state after a full day of riding, it can result in major damage to your ski, truck, yourself, or a bystander. Once the ramp is secured, it’s crucial that the ski is aligned properly with the truck and ramp or it can kick sideways or cause the ski to go off camber and lead to an accident. After loading the ski, you then have to detach and disassemble the ramp to be stored next to your ski for transport.
Sled Decks are a common option for transporting snowmobiles, but they create a lot of exposure to damage. Some of the greatest places to ride are in remote areas and may have you driving through low-hanging tree lines. It’s common for riders to forget about the total height of their vehicle with the addition of a sled and sled deck and end up damaging their snowmobile from tree branches or debris. Having the additional clearance could make or break your chance to ride some of the best trails.
