Loading Ramps

Loading Ramps

Loading ramps are essential if you’re using a small vehicle for work, such as a tractor mower. At Douglas Forest and Garden, we provide a range of small vehicles that may require carriage for a job. We sell small vehicles like tractor mowers, and Forzaline’s aluminium curved van ramps are ideal for this task. As you’d expect, they come as a set of two. The van ramp’s length is two metres, and each ramp is .2 metres in width. The max load of the combined ramps is 400kg which is more than enough to handle most tractor mowers.

The arched aluminium loading ramps are very lightweight. This makes it easy to load your tractor mower or vehicles up onto your trailer. Straps that come with the ramp are used to keep your ramps secure to your trailer without them sliding away when you’re loading and unloading. The loading ramps are ideal for heavier vehicles that are lower to the ground. It has a rough surface to maintain grip while you’re travelling up.

The aluminium is corrosion resistant, it’s easy to load up, take off, store away. And it has far less weight than the typical steal ramp but still able to handle a large capacity of up to 400kg. You can use the ramps with a van or a trailer. If you use something like an American-style pickup truck with a tailboard, be aware that hinged doors can slip or break under a load. Ensure that the tailboard is fully secured and able to handle the weight before you use the ramps.

Loading Ramp Safety Tips

Never drive a vehicle up the ramps. Your vehicle’s wheel torque may pull the ramps away from underneath it. The vehicle must be put in neutral and towed onto the vehicle. Take extra care to ensure nobody is directly behind the vehicle when you are pushing it onto the trailer or van, and ensure there is ample space behind you so that no persons or property are at risk. Once your ride-on mower or vehicle is loaded to your trailer or van we recommend you strap it down.

We hope this helps. If you’d like to view the ramps or speak to someone about your needs, please give us a call today on 021 4965 132.
