The MAD-RAMPS Pivoting Ramp System is the fastest, simplest, and safest way to load, unload, and transport your ATV or UTV. The elegant and unique design of our pivoting ramp system is both maintenance free and hassle free—making the alternatives of conventional ATV/UTV ramps and trailers totally obsolete. For an unrivaled, side-by-side comparison, witness the MAD-RAMPS Advantage for yourself.
The MAD-RAMPS steel frame—along with its patent-pending Pivot Bar and its two telescoping Pivot Cages—connects directly into your truck’s receiver hitch. (Note: For receiver hitch requirements, please refer to the FAQ page.) The aluminum alloy ramps affix to the Pivot Cages with spring-tension, quick-release pins that allow the ramps to extend and retract quickly and safely.
Once the aluminum ramps are in the fully-extended position, you are ready to load your machine. Simply drive your machine up the ramps with ease and confidence. When the rear tires of your ATV or UTV pass over the Pivot Bar, gravity takes over and swivels the Pivot Cages forward into what is called the “cradle position.” This maneuver safely lifts the aluminum ramps off of the ground and locks your machine into place for transport. A quick release of the spring-tension pins on each Pivot Cage allows the ramps to retract into one of two separate travel positions—one for highway travel and a second for off-road travel. Simply secure your ATV or UTV with three ratchet straps and go!
The unloading process is equally simple. A quick release of the spring-tension pins on each Pivot Cage allows the aluminum ramps to fully extend and to lock into place—in preparation for unloading your machine. As the rear tires of your ATV or UTV reverse over the Pivot Bar, the Pivot Cages safely swivel backwards, lowering the aluminum ramps to the ground. This maneuver allows you to quickly and safely unload your ATV or UTV from the bed of your truck.
When not in use, the MAD-RAMPS Pivoting Ramp System breaks down in less than 60 seconds and can be conveniently stored on your garage or shop wall with the MAD-MOUNT (sold separately), saving you valuable floor space.
