[FOUND] - Handicapped Scooter Lift for Pickup

I found a reasonable scooter, now need a way to put it in the bed of the truck. Don't want to hang it off the truck hitch, bumper of TT, or mount a hitch on the front of the truck. Like this:

Have you considered metal ramps? There are quite a few on the market (Harbor Freight, Northern Tool, etc). Or you could make your own out of 2 x 8 or 2 x 10 boards. I've seen metal mounting plates that attach to the wood and just lay over the tailgate. Once loaded, lay them on their side in the truck bed. They don't take up much room.

Thanks for trying. I have a ramp I made to "push" it into the truck bed. Don't like doing that. Don't want anything that has to stay on the hitch. Truck is long enough without the carrier hung on the rear.

I think Harbour Freight used to see a hitch mounted "crane" that you would out in the 2" receiver and had a manual crank to lift things.

DW has a scooter, and I have longer ramps, purchased through Sears mail order. Ramp folds in half, about five feet when folded. Scooter is able to load itself. Have since purchased a new scooter from Golden that breaks up into 5 pieces, heavest is the two high amp batteries. Tear it down, reasymble on the tailgate of the tv. When this route, due camper she'll.

I found a used Braun VSL 6900 scooter lift & installed back of pickup truck. I have cap, so it works out great.

I had one that went in the back of a minivan. Was my mom's for her scooter. I gave it to a disabled vet. He rolled into a Menards in a Caravan, screwed around with getting the wheelchair out. Walked over to him and asked him if he'd like an electric lift. He actually cried in the parking lot. Best gift I ever gave.
