About Us

Welcome To The Ramp Rack

We are a family owned rapidly growing Lawn Care & Landscape company based out of Smithsburg, MD. We now manage about 175 weekly mowing clients as well as a full landscape crew and commercial snow removal. As our company grows we are always looking to make our work more efficient. One thing we saw setbacks in were the trailers we were pulling. These setbacks included replacing tires on a regular basis, maintaining tags and inspections, maintaining lighting and finding employees that were comfortable with backing a trailer in and out of job sites. This is when we developed The Ramp Rack! This product has saved us time, money and frustration. While it is not suited for all operations, it makes a small to medium sized landscape crew super-efficient. The other major benefit to The Ramp Rack is its fully removable. This means when we are done with mowing season we can easily remove the rack and put in salt spreaders to have dual purpose trucks. We are excited to offer The Ramp Rack to other industry professionals starting Fall 2018.

Cost Savings Example

We have found The Ramp Rack saves each 2 person crew about 3.5hrs of labor each week. If your hourly rate is $65 per hour that is $455 of revenue you could be gaining each week. In a 28 week mowing season it adds up to $12,740 of revenue gained!

Testimonial

“Saw this at the photo shoot meetup outside with Chant, this is a dope little mowing setup. Fraction of the cost when you really think about it”

Brian's Lawn Maintenance

“Love it. Definitely considering this product for my 2019 startup. Good job Sir.”

Stephen Fair

“We have "mowing only" crews as part of our fleet and this is what we've been looking for. We do 1/8 acre, 1/4 acre, 1/2 acre, 1 acre lots mostly and I hate pulling a huge trailer setup into these residential neighborhoods just to cut the grass. It costs a lot to pull a trailer, need to train to pull it, tags/title/taxes/broken lights/insurance/broken tires. This solution would also allow us to have twice as many mowing trucks in our current shop location compared to our current truck/trailer setups. We're very excited about this and look forward to trying one out.”
