Ramps for changing tractor blades

I have a John Derre 570.

What small ramps would be suitable for driving up on them to get under and take the blades off?

I see some at Home Depot called - Black Widow Psr295 Plastic Car Service Ramps
Black Widow ramps

Not sure these are ok?
Thanks

Probably heavier duty than you'd need but should work fine.

Could also place something like cinder blocks or 8x8 wood blocks under front wheels using a wheeled automotive type jack. Jack can be removed for better access.

Now, I'm not being funny or trying to sidetrack your specific question about ramps, but...
If you have a tractor with a gen pole, that's what I use. I just get a chain on both sides at the front wheels/frame, & pick it up, put a couple of jack stands or blocks, then ease it down to the blocks, yet keeping the chain tight with the gen pole.

Ramps will obstruct access to the blades from the sides.

I agree with wirepuIler- I always jack up the front and use jack stands or blocks under the wheels.
