    To get off, you simply pull forward...
    Actually, to get off the Andersens, if you pulled forward to get onto them, you should back up, as pulling forward could result in damaging them.

    Someone better tell that to the company: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4JQV15VzBc

    I know, only a sample of one, but I did it that way for years without issue.

    After pulling forward on to the levelers you put the chock piece in behind the tire and the tire sits on the chock and the leveler. So to get off of them first you go forward to remove the chock, then go backwards to get off the leveler.

    Having just broken my third Andersen leveler in three years (partially my fault, but still...), I ran across these:

    https://smile.amazon.com/Beech-Lane-...Blevelers&th=1

    They tout a different resin and say they "... don't break like other levelers). They are rated for 5,000 lbs. more than the Andersens and have a non-skid surface on them. Any exposure or experience out there? Anyone hear of the company before?

    Rob
    They are roughly 2 lbs heaver (each) than the Andersons. I also like the friction skin as I have seen Anderson's slip out from under a tire. Ill probably order a pair at some point.

    Agreed. Itís not logical to drive off the end of a ramp when backing down is an option.
    On our first trip out, I accidentally pulled forward too far and when the wheel came over the front edge it cracked one of the ramps, possibly because it was on concrete, but Andersen replaced it minus $12 for shipping and told me the video was wrong.

    Hilarious. Someone actually did tell them! Doesn't instill confidence that they still have it on their website.

    I think itís a relatively small company, they probably canít afford to film another commercial just to correct a 1 second mistake.

    I do like the texture idea on those fake Andersens, but putting it on both sides would make more sense.
    I might just buy some textured bed-liner spray or something similar and apply it to my Andersens.
    Probably hit the red Andersen buckets while I'm at it. I'm not sure how much good it will do, but at the very least my leveling set will be black instead of bright red.

    I just got the Beech Lane from Amazon (for less than the Andersons) today now that they are back in stock. Lifetime warranty, and the seller says if you cut a few inches to get clearance between the tires (manufacturer says you can do that) they will honor the warranty. They are rated by the manufacturer for 35,000 pounds.

    The grip tape surface is not included in the warranty, but is replaceable according to the manufacturer. It looks easily replaced. They weigh just under 8 pounds each.

    Beech Lane says to back onto the blocks to level and then install the chocks. To remove, remove the chocks first, then drive forward.

    They are 6" wide by 15" long. I have not seen the Andersons so I cannot compare the two. However, the Beech Lane look very tough.

    Thank you, that's good to know. We have the Anderson's now but if they break again we will get the Beech Lane's.
