My name is Dale Otero and i've been in property maintenance for about 15 years. In late 2007 I was securing, inspecting, and maintaining over 300 properties a month. Over the years I have developed equipment and systems to make my job easier. At first it was just dovetail ramps and a few racks in our box trucks. Later I started building and modifying more of our equipment. I designed and built mowers , custom dump trailers, and material handlers. In late 2011 as work started to slow down I started looking for ways to increase profitability and decrease expenses. I took another look at the work I was doing and at the equipment I was using and decided to build a new trailer. I still use that trailer today as my primary rig, it can be seen here on my YouTube channel. In April of 2017 As work futher deminished I developed this ramp system to solve a problem I was having. I had a few mow and go's left in a zone I was no longer taking work in about 60 miles from my area of operation. I was under contract with the bank to which the properties belonged so I couldn't just give them up. I needed a more cost effective way to complete them and decided that pulling my trailer out there for just grass cuts was a bit overkill. Again, these were just Mow and Go's so I didn't really need the trailer. Instead of getting a smaller trailer I decided to go back to the basics. When I was first starting out I built dovetails for my commercial trucks, why not one for a pick-up truck? However I still needed to use my trailer 3 to 4 days a week so the ramp needed to be light and removable. Using this ramp has reduced my fuel and tolls by half making those few cuts much more profitable. This system is NOT designed to replace a trailer though for certain people I think it can. Rather It's designed to be an added resource that doesn't cost much to operate or require alot of room for storage. For me the problem was solved.
