Ours are cut and ready to go, when we pick up our new 21 in 5 days. I used the information on how to cut them posted by Red Dog several months ago.

Alf, you might want to pass a saw across the bottoms of them and cut some grooves every 1/2" or so. I had issues with them slipping a couple times depending on the ground surface. They had a tendency to move forward as the tires tried to go up the ramp. With the grooves, no slip.

I really like them because there's no stacking, just drive till level.

Andersons

Hi Alf
We're using the andersons again tonight. AZJack had cut one off, the other was full length. I put new Goodyear Endurance on the 21 and even the cut off one was too long, the sidewalks are taller on the new tires. So one of my very fine former park foremen used a bandsaw and freehanded the cutoff perfectly. Now they work great. If you change tires sometime. You might want to check the fit before going out again.
Dave

This is what I purchased after reading all the other comments on the Anderson Levelers slipping.

The wheels on the new 19s must be closer. I had to cut about 2 1/2 inch's off of one to make it just fit.

Our levelers came with one of those pads too. They work, but with the grooves I don't have to look for the pad.
