How to Select the Right Yard Ramp?

Time::2017-06-09 09:13:23    Click:

When it comes to deciding the specifications of a yard ramp for your needs, you need to know what weight capacity is required by determining the weight of the heaviest 

forklift that will be used on the ramp combined with the heaviest load the forklift will carry. The ramp you will need should have a weight capacity no less than the calculated

combined weight.

You will also need to know the width of the widest equipment/cargo that will be used on the ramp. The right yard ramp should be at least 15" wider than the widest 


Note: If you plan on using a yard ramp on a rail car, measure the rail car door opening to make sure the ramp will fit and make sure the yard ramp is wide enough to prevent the 

forklift from hitting the curbs.
