      Hi all,

      I have a Ford Transit LWB High Top with side loading door. I have a piece of machinery that rolls on four wheels and weighs in at about 80 kg. I want to be able to move into and out of the van this machine daily without too much effort through the loading door. Does anyone have any good ideas how to make a type of ramp that can be used on the side of the van, which maybe can slide parallel to the floor panel when not in use?

      I am open to suggestions, thanks for any replies.

      Hi, Dear Mr. Auto Engineer.


      Very interesting topic, but i think it would better if you could post some detailed pics of the zone in which the system will be installed. Just for giving some extra light, because, it is difficult to find them on internet.

      Best regards.

      Seems to me you want one of many readily available wheelchair ramps designed for mobility transport.
