Economical Sidewalk Crossing Alternative


Curious to hear thoughts on cheap, easily collapsible, sidewalk crossing bridges.

I constantly have to cross sidewalks with heavy vehicles and equipment. I have made homeowners sign a waiver before, but I would rather just bridge them.

I got online figuring someone had already built a collapsible crossing bridge for sidewalks. I can find nothing on the subject. In my spare time I sit and think up ways to avoid lawsuits lol.

I figure I am going to have to build one unless someone can point me to a low profile sidewalk crossing bridge.

It may seem dumb to some people but a few weeks back I had to drag a tree 100 yards that I could have easily accessed if I could have bridged the sidewalk.

I need something with a 5 ton 10k lb weight rating.

Thanks! I emailed them for a price list. Hoping to get something a little more transportable but that may be my ony option for a pre made product.
If they are too much I may fabricate my own.

Let us know what you come up with. I have a feeling those things are pretty salty.
