It makes sense to know more about this company and its products. What’s the quality of Link Manufacturing products? Is Link Manufacturing a good brand? Learn all the details in this review.
Link Manufacturing Origins
Privately-owned Link Manufacturing’s first efforts began with the development of a truck cab suspension in 1980. About a decade later, the Sioux Center, Iowa-based company, introduced its cargo management products. Link touts in 21st-century efforts to enhance its manufacturing efforts through advanced technology.
What Do Customers Think About Link Manufacturing?
While Link has been around for more than 40 years, there are not a lot of online reviews of the company. This is primarily because its signature product, the Cabmate suspension system, is typically sold to truck manufacturers, not consumers. Google reviews average 4.0 for the company, but that reflects comments from just nine people. Link ramps have been on the market for decades, but similarly, there is not much public feedback. One review reflects a you-get-what-you-pay-for comment in praising Link ramp quality.
What’s The Word On Link Manufacturing Customer Service?
Link provides customer support by telephone (800-222-6283) and helpfully offers direct customer service contact information (including email addresses) on its website. Product support materials, including ramp ordering guides and installation instructions, are available online.
What Is the Warranty On Link Ramps?
Link Manufacturing includes a one-year limited warranty on its mounted ramp products. As is typical with most upfit warranties, coverage is for defects with manufacturing or in materials. Link’s warranty is only valid for the original purchaser, who is responsible for correctly maintaining the ramp. The company specifically excludes the warranty in cases where non-Link accessories may have caused the problem.
Popular Link Manufacturing Products
Upfit Supply customers seeking a ramp solution turn to Link products for quality, reliability, and simplicity. The company offers different ramp options, such as the swivel-style or portable ramp, but it’s the mounted version that’s popular with our customers.
All Link ramps are made of high-strength extruded aluminum for years of trouble-free and rust-free use. Another standout feature (with mounted products) is baseplate installation. Just four bolts are used to secure the ramp to the work van’s floor.
The LB10 ramp mounts in vans with a sidestep and tucks away in the unused area above the step. Weight capacity: 1,000 pounds.
The LB20 ramp installs at the van’s rear doors and, similar to the LB10, stores in the “dead” space along the opening. A spring-loaded option makes for effortless opening and closing. Weight capacity: 750–1,500 (depending on model).
