    Does any body have any of these ramps Milenco Triple...and the Milenco Quattro....if possible could you measure one of both type's to answer my question.....Please

    One Advert says on the Quattro
    4 stages with total height of 200mm and 160mm on the top 4th stage.

    Another advert for the Triple said
    3 stages with a 160mm on the top stage...:Doh:?????...Are they saying they are the same total height :Wink: ...BUT the Quattro has more height options.....and longer

    Could you measure ...please..... the top stage lowest part what the tyre sits on.... to the base please. and say if it was the 3 or 4 you measured thank you

    Also what are your opinions of them.
    Sorry to be a pain.... but I am now about to disregard my yellow Fiamma 100mm

    Hi, good questions, i have the triple :thumb: and when its stops "persisting it down" :Eeek: i will go and measure for you.
    so far have been pleased with the triple. but did consider the quatro but cant remember why i rejected it when i was stood looking at both... ( I guess thats an age thing!! ) :Doh:
    it may have been price, size, or they are the same final height!
    thats why i say " good questions" i now also want to know the answers.

    get back to u soon:thumb:

    I have the triples and if it ever stops raining I'll go and measure them. I had the yellow fiamma ones before and these milenco ones are much better.
    Cheers.

    Phil, you're right it's just stopped!
    Now, to the centre of the third bit measures 120. To the very end bit is 160 so I guess that is what milenco is quoting.
    Hope that helps.

    I had some but got rid of them. They are quite bulky and heavy.

    Hi, I have the quatro version, just measured, to centre of top position is 155mm the very end measures 195mm. They are heavy and large but I have a Transit based hobby which is naturally "nose down" and I found the Fiamma ones just were not tall enough at times.

    We ended up with the triple - rejected the quatro on weight and size.

    So far they have been adequate for every slope encountered :thumb:

    Sorry - can't measure as they are in the van in storage!

    Hi Mel, I have got a pair of quattro's personally I love them ,I also take 1 fiamma yellow wedge just to level the third wheel and have always got level. They are a bit bulky but worth it. Thanks for email about the aire the other day. Still trying to talk wife into going back to france for more hols , but after me being took poorly while in the loire shortly after we met you at catillon sur sambre, she's now nervous as she doesn't speak french and also doesn't drive ( then she would feel stranded if the worst happen ) Terry:Cool:

    Yes that is the problem with the Rapido... nose down..low ground clearance...built for speed:Wink::Wink::Rofl1::Rofl1:
    Yes the Fiamma are a little on the low side sometimes.

    I do like your Avatar.....are you Dave's... Shifty...Shifftzz.....Twin Brother as your Photo and his look very much alike...except for the glasses you have on for the upper class of course:Wink::Wink::Rofl1::Rofl1: the reflection of the lady taking your photo is it the Wife...

    We bought a set of Quattros at Stratford show, having compared them to the Triples and decided that they gave more options. On the one occasion we've used them we found that having one front wheel on the 4th step of one and the other front wheel on the lower step of the other (rather than using a single ramp with wheel on the third step) gave us the best level for the way the ground was. Rather more versatile than the yellow Fiamma ones we used with our previous van.

    Hi, rather like a previous poster (Graham I think) I use the quattros.

    I can sit up on the third level with no fear of toppeling off, I also carry a small fiamma wedge for the third wheel.

    I have on one occasion (Metz) sat on the top of the quattro with the opposite wheel on the first step.

    A far greater range of heights offering a more versatile levelling solution.

    I'm sure they are heavier and larger but they are NOT heavy or indeed too large.

    Ok its stoped raining :thumb: enough to get the tape out. i know you have had lots of good reply's already. here's my bit;;
    overall lenght 600mm
    with 300mm
    step 1 40mm
    step 2 80mm
    step 3 120mm

    total hiegth at end 160mm.

    as already mentioned they are better than the Fiamma models because they are wider and have a flat base plate which does not sink into the ground as much as a Fiamma.
