Please don't anyone copy this!
That is an unbelievably dangerous setup.
It's wrong in so many ways:

1st, It is sloping ground.

2nd, The ground bearing pressure of blocks on dirt won't be very good.

3rd, Blocks are not designed for this sort of load bearing situation.

4th, If using blocks isn't dangerous enough these ones are very narrow and to make matters worse the damned things are stacked, making for a loverly tottering tower of death!

5th, the wooden ramp frame, looks nailed together and the timber planks are nowhere near thick enough for the load.

VVC160 - The photo showing that incredibly dangerous way to lift a car is probably best left as a supreme example of what not to do! Please tell me you didnt go anywhere near that...

@graham1 & jelly: I never had any issues using standard ramps without extensions...

These are the ones I use with added Sealy extension ramps. Bought from E-Bay with built in jacking plates

Hi sundance, I bet these would be even better if you stuck them on breeze blocks and bits of wood!!

You just couldn’t make it up, could you?

Cheers

Sorry, this has been done many times (as a free item)... Although length isn't best.......   width = length because of the stiff pallet 190 cm! But 190 cm fits fully the use!

For my safety, I had strong logs & jacks...... Mind, I studied joinery & carpentry...
Also using double blocks pile in 2019!!!!
Being over 60, I agree now the wedging does take too much time!!!  Only waiting for a more practical home................   ;)

You didn't study design or physics obviously - THIS IS NOT SAFE - PEOPLE DIE TAKING LESS RISK!

Please stop doing this.

As someone who is licenced to do high risk work, my professional opinion is this is still unbelievably dangerous.
Worksafe would pull my licence in a nanosecond if I did this, and quite rightly too!
You say that you've done this many times...... you've been very lucky so far.......don't bother buying a lotto ticket because you've used up all your luck!
Keep doing this and sooner or later your luck will run out........I'd be betting on sooner. You will end up getting seriously hurt or dead!

A warning to the kiddies.......DON'T DO THIS AT HOME!
