Not that bad for under $500.   I think the gate could be a little wider.   But I guess a barrel would fit find as long as the truck was level.   The legs that stabilize it to the ground would need something larger placed under them when out in the fields to keep them from sinking in the dirt.

Still though, that is pretty good for the price.

Sure wish a half dozen of you would buy one and use it heavily til spring so we know if it stands up before i get stuck with it if it is shoddy.  My finger is itching!  I had a tommy lift on my pickup for years and really regret selling it.  This would be nice in that you could take it off I guess.  Would be a two man job to mount and dismount it to your reciever though.

Roll it over to the receiver hitch with a floor jack.

I'd bet your truck bed will sink down due to the weight just as if you stood on the bumper. (assuming what you were lifting weighed as much as you do). Those legs are just there to stop the bed from dropping. In most cases I suspect you could get by without them. Or just carry a 4ft section of 2x10 or something to use as a brace on soil.

I don't think you could do without the outriggers. I think they keep the load from
tipping to one side or the other in the hitch connection if the load is not centered.
It looks to me  if you put a good load in the truck you would have a hard time
getting the legs released. All the weight pushing down on the pickup bed would be held up by those legs, seems like it would hard to pull those pins.

Not using the outriggers will probably break something as I doubt if it is built to John Deere specs.  A handy man jack would solve the stowing problem if you don't kill yourself with that.  I see the bottoms of the outriggers are an acme screw adjust.  I suppose if their is a nut at the bottom you could shorten the outriggers by retracting the screw.
