I saw these and I think they would be easy to use. I have not seen them myself in action.

Looks like a winner to me. I'll be looking for a set. Thanks for posting.

After 50 plus years of using wood and plywood blocks which eventually split or rotted, I finally bit the bullet- I bought a 5' x 7' x 3/4" horse stall mat which I cut into appropriate lengths so I can pull the fiver up on the needed number of blocks to level up- The mat is made of recycled tires and will never split or rot and will never need replacement- The material is heavier than wood and stores very compactly- JMHO- Don

P.S. The material is compressed in the manufacturing process and does not compress in use- Don

Two sets of Lynx Levelers for us. They work great and very durable through rain or shine.

I purchased a set of the Andersen Leveling Ramps today. Wood splits and the yellow logos to me are a pita

I also bought the horse stall mat. I cut it up with a jig saw. They are easy to store in a plastic container in the back of the truck.

Thanks for the info. I just purchased 2 of them from Amazon. Hopefully they will work as easy as advertized and I will not break them.

They do work great. Have been using them for about a year.

Tractor Supply has a 4'X6'X3/4" for $33 bucks.

Hi

If I told you what I was doing to level the trailer I would create a fire storm particularly now that I have two electric drive motors on the front legs. LOL

Are these horse pads heavy enough to use under the level up jacks?

We use our rubber mat pads at all locations- They do not compress at all- I wish I had spent the money years ago- JMHO- Don

Also use the Lynx levelers and 2X10. I use the Lynx under the door steps and on the back stabilizers. 2 sets is about right for us. Also got ours as Wally World. Treated 2X10's from Lowes, where they will cut them to proper length for you.

The Anderson levelers work very well for me, great invention, Neat clean and simple to use. Makes leveling a breeze, looks cool too.
