    Excellent question, to add to that.... Do you have the tires loaded or have wheel weights?

    I unloaded a Curtis hard side cab (to fit his 2210) for my neighbor a few weeks ago and shipping weight was about 300lb I think.

    How much do you weigh? No need to answer, but add it to your equation.

    From the tractor's perspective, we're just ballast.

    You will want ramps rated higher than 2000 lbs. The 54" snow blower is around 250 lbs without the quick hitch components (maybe 350 for the entire snowblower setup), plus the cab (256 lbs on the sell sheet for the standard cab), plus the tractor weight, plus rear ballast for the blower, plus operator weight... I'd go with 3000 lb ramps minimum. Tractor supply has a set for $170.

    Also keep in mind that the snowblower gives the tractor a much more shallow approach angle. My trailer has a two foot dovetail with a four foot gate (6 feet of ramp length) and I still have to add boards to the end of the ramp (to add ramp length) to allow the snowblower to clear the ramp without scraping the snowblower on the ramp before the front tires of the tractor are on the ramp.

    I ran into the ramp length problem. Unfortunately more than once. My 6'X10' landscape trailer has a fold up gate in the back. With the deck on it's close going over the hinges but it will make it. With my plow on the angle is too steep. The plow hits the gate then I'm stuck. Have to use 2 long wooden boards to get it on or off. With my X540 being around 800 lbs it bends the planks but not too much. I wouldn't use wood with anything heavier.

    I just went down the same path last week. I'll be taking delivery on my 1025 TLB later this week and I'm pretty confident the fold-up aluminum ramp I had utilized in the past wouldn't cut the mustard.

    Here is what I ended up with:

    Aluminum Arched Trailer Ramps - Dual Runner Ramps A-ATR

    I went with the 3000 lb unit, 84". I haven't taken them out of the shipping wrapper as of yet, so I can't offer a review.

    That's what we use. Our trailers on a 3/4 ton or 1 ton make for a steep approach angle especially with a hoe. Makes life easy and safe.
