If you have loaded rears or wheel weights I bet you will bend that landscape gate right down to the ground. I don't think that your trailer guy has an appreciation for what you tractor weighs, but mostly I expect that he does not have the right trailer so he is trying to sell you what he has. Loading an NFE tractor on two ramps is no big deal, been doing it for many years.

any one that loads a narrow front end tractor with just two ramps must have a death wish. have known a couple of guys who did that, no longer living because they were to tight to spend the money for a third ramp.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

A little hard to believe, LOL. I saw a friend that is about twenty years older than me do it, and my immediate thought was "Wow! Slick!" So I quit carrying that bending in the middle plank. I have been loading this way for about twelve years, for about fifteen trips or thirty load-ups a year. I will admit that it probably requires a little skill and experience and confidence, and of course all safe loading and driving practices still apply. There are many pitfalls in trailer loading and unloading to watch for. I once convinced a friend who was unchaining while sitting on a spot where his trailer leaned to both the rear and side, to move to a level place and walk a few more feet.

This Coyote trailer, made in Ohio, I ordered this spring works great for me!

I'm with Chuck, full width is the way to go, allows you to load anything from a wheel barrow up.
I load my 7,200 lb Cane tractor on mine no problem.
Look into hydraulics, I promise you, those ramps grow heavier with age(yours that is!) My trailer is a 96 model and those ramps have really took the abuse!
