Looking for a set of good ramps to load a yamaha battery power standard gulf cart into my truck. Any suggestions?

I use a pair of arched aluminum ramps from tractor supply iirc. Ramps are the ones sold to load lawn mowers into a truck. Only problem is that they do not fold and are six feet long.

Same thing I have, two arched aluminum ramps but got mine at Lowes. They work great for loading my gas EZ Go into the back of my F450 4X4. I slide the ramps under the cart when done for storage.

Arched works great. Don't be a dope and not use straps to hold them tight to the tailgate. The straps were included and hook to bumper in just a second or two. They could keep you off YouTube or worse out of the hospital.

I am concerned about weight, most ramps only support 1500# as a pair.. I have found a few that will hold more weight, just don't want to spend more than I really need too.

If the ramps hold 1500 pounds as a pair they will hold the whole cart. My Yamaha cart with 4 seats and roof don’t weigh near 1500 pounds.

Never would considered the harbor freight ramps, you get what you pay for, and I will spend what it takes to get a good set of ramps. My original question was for a good set of ramps!

I have a set of aluminum folding ramps I think I bought at Tractor supply. They flex a little but nothing too alarming. I load in the side door of my trailer but have had it in the back of a pickup a few times.

Been using these for over 6 years now. every weekend and when i get home to put away. Havent had one issue with them. Would buy another set in a heart beat. I bet i have loaded and unloaded my golf cart 500 times on these without issue.
