#2560: Underamp

Today’s invention is a lightweight ramp which can be carried on the underside of commercial vehicles.

Not only would this help smooth airflow around the lorry itself, when being driven, but when there was a need to get the vehicle lifted off some of its wheels, the ramp could be disengaged, dropped onto the ground and quickly driven up. Faster certainly than using a conventional jackstand.

The ramp(s) could be made to, say, an aluminium spaceframe design and might also be deployed under the front wheels whenever a heavily loaded vehicle had to drive onto a kerb -to avoid other vehicles or to park up overnight on an elevated area.
