I usually just lift mine in, it only takes 2 guys to lift mine in the truck. one on each trailing arm to get the front up, then one goes to the back and lifts and pushes. Usually if im going somewhere with the sled there is more than one person with me. If by myself, I just drive up on a snowbank.. Cant get any cheaper than that, LOL

Why do you snow blow your yard??????

most people clear their driveways and sidewalks!

never thought of that you may want the middle track one to have some grip strips on it.

Before i got a trailer, i went to the traler shop and got some aluminum ramp ends that lock on your tail gait(4) and 4 2x6s and a handfull of lathes. i cut the 2x6 off just short enough to fit inside my body when i wasnt using them. 2 together in the middle for the track with lathes screwed to them everu foot or so for traction and lathes running up the sides of the other 2x6s for ski guides.....worked fine and wasnt that exspensive

I have a tilt trailer. I hate having to have someone in front of the trailer to push the end back down to the tongue, especially after there is already one six hundred pound sled up there. So I bought one of those inexpensive tri-fold ramps at Cabelos. The one I bought had channels in it for cutting and sliding 3/8" ply into it. Works great! I have used it to put one in the back of the truck too. Before I got the ramp, I used snow banks also for loading into the back of the truck. Don't get no cheaper than that.
