This a strong but compact ramp for loading items into a truck or trailer. The ramp folds into three panels and is secured with straps to prevent it from moving while in use. Also has a cam lock to keep it together while not in use. The treads are great and prevent it from slipping while loading. Rubber tips cushion the connection with the vehicle. The aluminum is super strong but light weight to carry.

CargoSmart 50 in. W x 77 in. L Aluminum Tri-Fold Ramp with Treads, 1500 lb. Capacity - a Home Depot Seeds Program Review
I needed a way to load my lawn tractor, which is going to need service soon, on my 4x8 utility trailer. This isn’t one of those landscaper trailers with the flip down back that you can drive your lawn equipment up on so I needed a different option. I’ve looked at some for loading ATV, motorcycles, etc. on to it except from a different, unnamed (cheapo) vendor. The CargoSmart 50 in. W x 77 in. Aluminum Tri-Fold Ramp seemed like a pretty good option and seems far better made. At a weight rating of 1500 pounds I’ll have no problem with my lawn tractor.
Fully opened, the ramp is 50 inches wide. That fits across my trailer without a problem. . Since I haven’t tried using the ramp for my tractor yet, I decided to use it for loading my snowblower into the back of my Outback. This may be a far better use! I was able to roll the snowblower up the ramp easily even though it has pretty small wheels. The gaps between the tread are 3 ½ inches. Fat tires would be better but small wheels like the snowblower, lawnmower or tiller work just fine.
The ramp has three sections that fold for easy storage. Folded, the ramp is 16 ½ inches wide and 6 ½ feet high. I really like the folding feature since I want to store it in my shed when not in use. There are some locks of sorts on both sides to keep the folded sections together. I thought I would just leave one section folded to load my car but I found that when it was fully open, the third section just hung off to the side outside of the car. I’m not sure how stable having one section folded would be.
If you need a loading ramp for your trailer, pickup or SUV, this CargoSmart 50 inch Aluminum Tri-Fold Ramp would be a good choice. It looks and feels strong and it folds down to a very manageable size for storage. The treads aren’t too far part to roll small wheeled equipment up it.

This ramp is made of aluminum so is very lightweight and easily carried by almost any adult. Being aluminum, it won’t rust. The top of each of the sections are closed and the bottoms open so water won’t collect inside the frames. There are no sharp edges that I could find so you don’t need to wear leather gloves to handle it. There are latches on both sides of the ramps which need to be released in order to unfold it. The latches work easily and hold the ramps securely closed when engaged. When you unfold the ramp, pay attention to the slant of the rubber-coated feet and make sure they are pointed downward so the ramp will be in the correct position when you unfold it (it’s awkward to have to flip it if you unfold it incorrectly). The feet have rubber grips on them so they won’t mar your metal and are less likely to slip. The feet are 4.5” long and are 1” wide and there are 2 feet on each section for a total of 6 rubber coated feet. Our ATVs weren’t around at the time we tested this so we had 2 men (both about 250lbs) walk up the ramp and they felt secure; the ramp didn’t bend under their combined weight, nor did it shift. I feel confident it will handle the load it claims. It fits easily in the bed of my short bed pick up. A bonus is that the ramp comes with 2 tie downs each one of which is a total of about 14 feet in length. There is a hook at one end of the tie down and a loop at the other end (the loop is 3.5” and included in my overall measurement). On some tie downs, the clamps are stiff and difficult to open but these work smoothly and easily.

These ramps check all the boxes. They fold up to store is small area, they are light and easy to transport, and they are easy to use. The ramps are exactly the proper width to cover the tailgate, and when you use the two straps to secure the ramp to the hitch on the truck the ramps are rock solid and provide a great system for loading and unload your 4 wheeler in and out of your truck bed.
You can see that two cinch straps hook onto the receiver hitch and really pull the ramps down securely and prevent them from slipping. I would not use these ramps without the straps, I think the odds of them slipping off your tailgate would be very high.

The 50 in. W x 77 in. L 1500 lb. Capacity Aluminum Tri-Fold Truck Loading Ramp with Treads (Includes 1 Ramp) by CargoSmart is a decent design. It folds up and latches shut into a reasonably sized piece that we can stand on end in the van and strap it in place. It is just wide enough to make a tight squeeze at the back doors of the van. The tie straps are a very good add-on as you see way too many video's on YouTube where somebody is riding up the ramp and scoots the ramp off of the back of the truck or trailer. Time will tell on how rugged it is, but in our application it should serve us well for many years. Good job guys.
A lightweight yet durable designed loading ramp made by a company called CARGOSMART. The ramp is a compact tri fold unit that is made to store by folding it a third of its size. It measures 50 inches wide by 76 inches long when unfolded. Folded (or stored) condition measures 17 inches wide by 6 inches thick by 76 inches long. It is constructed of welded aluminum extrusions with punched treads. The ramp folds over on top of itself and is secured with a half turn plate that slides over a fastening screw designed to keep the ramp sections clamped together. The ramp includes coated arms that rest on the bed of the trailer or truck for protection and to minimize shifting. Two tie down straps used to secure the ramp from shifting off your truck bed or trailers are included. Ramp capacity is rated at 1500 lbs. or 500 lbs. per section.

This is a pretty nice ramp, maybe a little short for my tastes, but well constructed and thought out. I have an F-150, and as you can see in the pictures the slope is pretty steep. I'm torn because I would prefer a ramp that is slightly longer, but this one fits into the 6.5 foot bed really nice (and a longer one would not travel as well). If you have access to a small hill so you can smooth out the ramp slope this is perfect. It's all aluminum so it's very lightweight to carry and fold. The locking latches were a little tight but after a minor adjustment they work great at keeping it closed during transport. The ramp sits on top of your tailgate on some rubber feet, and has safety straps that you can loop around the tailgate to keep it from sliding. The other thing that I really like is that the hinges alternate (above on one side, under on the other)... this means that if you place too much weight on one side it creates opposing tension on the other side instead of folding under the weight. This is a nice wide ramp and I fell much safer loading my gear with it instead of my old setup of two skinny ramps under the tires.

I have an old pickup truck that I use for a variety of chores. Renting heavy yard equipment at a local business required me to load into truck bed. This is the perfect solution to facilitate loading. Occasionally I load furniture with the help of a dolly this ramp makes that a much simpler task, than trying to lift things into truck bed. Love that it folds for efficient storage when not in use. Very sturdy with many features!
Light, Easy to Use, Good Traction, Well Built. Strong welds and hinges. Locks functional but one gets crushed between two sections when open. Straps are barely sufficient for keeping ramps in place as locking mechanism doesn’t grip enough to prevent strap from sliding, especially when standing on ramp and pulling something up. Coated tabs grip well. Ramp provides great traction for walking. On a 36” (the Installation Instructions- Maximum loading height) high short bed first gen Tundra, a light duty pick-up, the ramp was selected to be used in, the ramp was too steep, the transition angle from ramp to bed way too much, for our two riding mowers, The same with tailgate removed. 21” push mowers dragged. Great for rear tine tiller, soft tire hand truck, not too heavily loaded wheel barrows. Cement mixer took some effort but was able to be loaded and unloaded, much easier than lifting. Ramp just over an inch too long to fit in Tundra bed with tailgate closed, unless ramp angled across bed. Not a big deal as it can be placed up on tailgate when bed is loaded. Am satisfied with the ramp after a few weeks use as it is well built, strong and lightweight. Product overview stating “This ramp is ideal for short truck beds,” and “Great for loading lawn tractors,” is misleading. Ramp design seems good, clean strong looking welds, nice gripping surface. Ramp will suit many tasks, just not riding mowers going in pickups.

The CargoSmart aluminum tri-fold ramp is a well made product. It will withstand all kinds of abuse because that's what we men do to these things. It can take the abuse. It has a tri-fold ramp system that can hold 500 lbs. on each ramp or 1500 lbs. combined. It is for loading many types of items from motorcycles, to four wheelers (small), to lawn equipment and to the things you can't lift by yourself. It will also assist in the lift or sliding of heavy lawn equipment you may rent. It has treads that will keep your feet from slipping on a flat ramp. It is well made of light weight aluminum but yet durable and able to take the heavy items. It is 50 inches wide almost the width of a truck tail gate and 77 inches long giving you great angle. It also has two web straps that you can attach on the bottom to keep the ramp in place and from slipping while you load. Recommend.

Using the Cargo Smart TriFold Ramp for the first time I made a video so it's on YouTube. I was impressed with how easy it was to set them up and how they fit perfectly on my tailgate. They are so light weight I can even use them by myself and I'm only 5 ft. nothing and less than 100 pounds. They are very stable when in use. These are really going to be handy in the coming weeks. My son loaded his old Suzuki Quad in my truck so I could help him with the first load of motorcycles and ATVs that we need to move.

This CargoSmart Aluminum Ramp is a great thing to have if you’re constantly loading/unloading from a trailer or pickup truck. I have dirtbikes/ATV’s and this ramp is great for loading and unloading from the back of my pickup truck! The integrated tie downs are a must and simple to use, securing the ramps to the truck. I used it for my pressure washer just the other day and made it painless using the ramp rather than lifting the heavy pressure washer in and out of the back pickup bed. Great piece of equipment for any truck/trailer!

I would recommend this product to anyone who has a riding mower or a ATV that they want to move from one place to another or one location to a another location, this tri-folding ramp makes moving such items easier to load onto trailer or onto a pickup and even makes it safer that using wooden planks especially using the included safety straps to help secure the ramps to a pickup or trailer so they will not slide on you while loading riding mower or ATV or while using to load furniture or appliances also.

This ramp is awesome. It is made with aluminum which makes it so light and easy to maneuver. It features a simple locking mechanism on the side to keep it folded when not in use. It makes it very easy to load on such a wide surface area. You don't have to worry about going off the ramps or lining up the tires perfectly. It also has big tread hold cut out for easy traction. By far the nicest ramp I have owned. I have used it to load mini bikes and a lawn mower into my truck.

This Tri-Fold ramp is going to be a valued addition to my arsenal of "things that make my life easier". In the past, when we've needed to load or unload anything from my truck, we've used two planks and lots of fingers crossed. This ramp is lightweight enough that I can carry it, align it on my truck, and fold it out for use with no trouble. It also is lightweight enough that I can hang it on my ladder hooks in my shed. I will store the straps inside a plastic container when I'm not using the ramp so the mice and miller moths can't get to them.

This fully-assembled CargoSmart tri-fold ramp has a lot of great features that make it a good choice for getting things loaded and unloaded from most any truck bed. This is a very strong (and rust-proof) aluminum tri-fold ramp which has two locking mechanisms for safety to keep it closed. It also has two substantial safety straps (see picture) to secure the ramp to the truck frame and/or hitch when it is in place to prevent it slipping out of place and falling. The ramp comes with good instructions in case you have not used a similar ramp before. The “truck-end” of the ramps has rubber-coated angled pads (see picture) to make sure you do not damage your truck bed or tailgate surface. The hinges in the folding sections are high quality with excellent welding (see picture). The manufacturer states it can be used for lawn tractors, ATVs, and such thanks to its large tread design (see picture), and it will hold up well to all those items due to its 1,500 pound distributed load rating (500 pounds per section). I highly recommend this folding truck ramp! You will get many years of use out of it.
This is a great ramps set. It’s easy to use and light weight. It sets up in two seconds. It has handy little clips that keep it together for easy storage. It does come with two tiedowns but they’re not the best quality. I really like the attachment to the bed of the truck it seems a lot more stable than the two piece ramp I had prior. I have no issues driving my tractor right into the bed of my pick up.

This ramp is for a standard height pickup truck or trailer. The ramp is made of aluminum and is welded together. The joints are hinged so you can fold the ramp up for easier moving or storage. I found that one of the hinges was welded on crooked and it made opening the ramp a little harder but in no way weakens the ramp. The ramp it's self weighs about 30lbs and is fairly easy for one person to set up by themselves although two would be better. There are two tie down straps for securing the ramp when in use and for securing the ramp for storage. This is a good ramp for what it's rated for.

received this tri-fold ramp from home depot. I will start off saying I read a lot of reviews about this ramp and how people have bent them up loading machinery and their motorcycles. I use to have one like this ramp many years ago and loaded a lot of motorcycles using this type of ramp. the weight must be distributed properly. I have cut a piece of 1/3 plywood to lay across it to load my scooter. since the weight will be centered in the middle. The instructions are simple to follow and the ramp is very light to carry and load in the back of my truck. The straps are very nice to have and this ramp will not shift on you when trying to load an object on the truck or trailer because you can tighten it down using the straps. super nice ramp and now I can load my motorcycle and take on trips with me.

It's a very good product. I drive may riding lawnmower over it constantly and doesn't bend.

Owned for a month and could not support the weight of a standard golf cart. The tack welds broke on the treads. Piece of junk. Also, Home Depot wouldn’t accept return.

It worked perfectly for getting our zero turn mower into the utility shed which the door was 17in. From ground level, making the slope not to steep to go up or down.

Very pleased with the trifold ramp. Lightweight and durable. Easily handles my 750lb zero turn mower.

Uncertain if it left the warehouse or during transport, but fact of the matter it arrived damaged.
There is a massive contour in the very first rung that lays on the ground so this ramp will never sit correctly, thus problematic while loading more so than unloading.
If it was damage free it would be a perfect ramp that comes with tie downs. It folds nicely and doesn't take a lot of room in my trailer and use the incorporated tie downs to secure while not in use. The Rungs are spread perfectly, not to close and not to far.
