    Like I mentioned in earlier post I mostly sell 20-36 ppm models weighing less than 200lbs so hopefully this will work. Heavier production models I rent liftgate truck.
    Check your vertical clearances at the SHORTEST point (Usually at the door catches)!! Last company I worked for had a 3/4 ton van with a lift gate on it, and 99% of the machines loaded in just fine...but if we had one with a single pass ADF (Canon iRAdv C5255, etc) we'd have to remove the doc feeder to get it into the van, and reattach it on site.


    ...forwarned is forearmed.

    I will report back on how it works.
    Soooooo, how did it work?

    The ramps have been working great! I have even used them a few times right from the van to top level of customers steps. These 12 ft ramps are one of the best "tool" I have bought for the business. Can't tell you how many deliveries I have made by myself.
