    X758 & Loadall Ramp to load into pick up truck

    Hey everyone,

    So I have a 5.5 ft bed pick up truck, and an X758.

    I live a couple of miles from my business and there’s times I could use the x758 at home and at the business. I can’t put a decent shed up at the business for reasons to long to explain.

    I don’t fancy hooking up a trailer every time I want to just bring the x758 to the business, imagine doing that in the snow etc!

    So I found this ramp called LoadAll, you can drive the x758 into the truck bed, holds 1,300 lbs, although they say it can handle a lot more, the x758 is 1050 lbs approx.

    I called LoadAll, I explained that the x758 is longer than the 5.5 foot truck bed, they said they can extend the bed part to 96” and not pressure the tailgate

    Just wondering, what do you guys think?

    There is other videos also, it’s $2800 with delivery.

    Imagine driving up that ramp in the snow! Makes trailering seem like a piece of cake!

    That seems like a very expensive ramp solution. Me, I'd buy a nice small aluminum trailer with low ramp and pocket the change. No pucker factor! Plus, a trailer has many uses, instead of a single-purpose use like that ramp system.

    Yep I had the same opinion of this in the snow, looks slick and slippery or flat shiny surface, they assure me it is not and the rubber digs in....

    There are user pics of people using snow mobiles etc going in them

    Anyone got one? As ill definitely be using it in winter

    I'd go for a small utility trailer.
    Easy to move, even in the snow, easier to load/unload, and can be used for so much more than just hauling your tractor.
    Plus, it would be cheaper than the ramp.

    I won’t have the storage space and I don’t fancy hooking up in the snow and turning in the lot etc etc it’s just a lot more hassle

    I suspect that weight is without a mower deck. Since you mentioned transporting the X758 in the snow, will it have a snow plow or snow blower attached?

    Just wondering, what do you guys think?

    There is other videos also, itís $2800 with delivery.
    How much does the LoadAll itself weigh? How do you get it in and out of the pickup bed?

    For that kind of money I recommend a small landscape trailer no question about it. You can get a trailer large enough for the X758 for less than half the price of the LoadAll and it will be much more convenient.

    Attaching to a trailer probably takes less time than rigging that carrier. Hooking up a trailer in the snow is no different than attaching to it in the summer.

    Like Jay said you have to consider the total weight of the lifter, tractor, ballast weights, mower deck and or attachments. That's starting to add up to a lot of weight for what sounds like a 1500 series pick up or smaller.

    I have a Tundra.

    The LoadAll remains built into the truck bed. You don’t install it every time. Once you use it it folds up under the deck/bed

    Exactly you have a 1500 series pickup with a payload capacity of about 1500 pounds. By the time you get that loadall and the tractor with all it's furl and goodies in the truck you will be exceeding the rated payload for your truck.

    Sure the truck will be able to drive just fine but it will burn out your rear suspension in very short order. Shocks will wear out quickly and the the springs and bushings will follow behind them.

    Carrying the extra 2-300 lb loadall around all the time will hurt your fuel economy.

    Just more to consider. Not telling you not to do it.

    Personally I have an 8 foot bed on my truck and I have no desire to squeeze my x738 into my truck.
