    Ok, I was in the market for a SnowEx 575 because it can come on and off the hitch with one person, however, I got a great deal on a SnowEx 1075 Hitch Mount that I couldn't pass up. So, the problem becomes, How can I rig up some type of platform that I can wheel the 1075 to the truck and slide it into the receiver. The receiver is about 2 feet off the ground.

    Hanging it in the garage is not an option, so any other ideas?????

    Make a 3 or 4 leg table with telescoping legs made out 2 different sizes of square tube put flat steel on the top of the legs and the bottom then put casters on the bottom then use a cheap bottle jack to lift the top table to the salter to take the weight off and remove the salter

    Hope this makes sense to you

    I used to use a hydraulic jack w/ wheels on it when I had one.

    Cut the tube at a angle, install a set of wheels or make a cart so you can wheel it up to the hitch and push it in.

    Look at how Snoway designed their's. Will do just what you want.

    I built a rack for my atv jack, works good.
    The jack was like $50 at Fleet Farm.
