Yard ramps, also called forklift ramps, loading dock ramps, etc., can be used to load & unload trucks from ground level, as well as to move product from dock height down to ground level. The job you’re tackling determines which design will best fit your needs. Yard ramps are portable and can be towed with a forklift. A hydraulic pump makes adjusting the height of the yard ramp easy, and models 96″ or wider can handle traffic from cars, trucks, and vans.
Mobile Yard Ramp
It’s the movable loading dock that converts vacant space into a freight handling center. It will expand your present dock capacity and create loading facilities where no dock exists, without new construction. The mobile yard ramp provides ground level access to trucks, railcars or buildings. It is easy to roll from job to job and handles freight with a forklift virtually anywhere. Maximum capacities to 60,000 lbs., available in either steel or aluminum construction.
(Standard on steel models) provides dependable means of positioning the ramp into place from one truck to another. When not in use the sleeve is conveniently stored on the side of the yard ramp. Not intended for long distance towing.
Low End Plate
36” long. Fork lift front drive wheels can reach diamond plate grating while rear wheels are still on the ground.
Approach plate is beveled from the underside to provide a smooth ground-level entry, eliminating jolts and bumps when fork lifts travel on and off the ramp.
Deep overlap of frame at high end is assurance that the ramp rests firmly on the carrier body or dock floor. Eight foot long safety chains and hooks are provided for added security. When correctly rigged, chains join the ramp and vehicle into a single unit.
(Standard on all ramps) Premium 23” tires, ideal for use in most applications. Air inflated tires create a cushion effect on irregular or bumpy surfaces. Solid Filled Tires- (Option on all ramps) Ideal in applications where sharp debris could puncture a pneumatic tire.
Constructed of electro-forged serrated steel for superior strength. Heavy duty steel grating bearing bars are thick for durability in the roughest of applications. Bars are spaced 1″ apart to resist clogging of debris and to insure all-weather high traction running surface.
Hydraulic hand pump quickly adjusts top end of ramp with the bed of the vehicle or loading dock. The handle is stored out of the way when not in use.
7″ safety curbs prevent vehicle runoff. Patented box frame construction takes the stress of heavy loads.
Short and long-term rentals are available as well as lease/purchase options. Used ramps are also available on occasion so please call for latest inventory!
Can be used in combination with a mobile yard ramp or dock-to-ground ramp for parallel loading on carriers or docks in limited space locations or where no permanent facilities exist. Two or more platforms can be locked together to form a large portable dock. Platforms come standard with steel grating deck, steel legs, two movable curb sections and lift sleeves for safe easy handling by fork trucks. Platforms heights are custom made to meet customer specification with optional custom legs up to 6 inches of adjustment. and are available in capacities up to 30,000 lbs.
Portable dock to ground ramps are ideal for use in material handling situations where vehicles need to travel from grade level to dock height. Portable dock ramps are used in applications where mobility is not a necessity, while still offering convenient versatility and affordability.
