Yard ramps fulfill an important niche as a productivity tool, enabling the user to move heavy equipment via forklift from ground level to loading dock level.
The chief purpose of a yard ramp is to facilitate the loading and unloading of semi-trailer trucks at locations that lack a loading dock. Alternatively, a yard ramp can be used to allow vehicles to enter a warehouse through a loading dock door.

Dimensions and Capacity

Optional Features and Accessories
Six-Foot Level Off Makes End Loads More Accessible
An additional six feet allows you to unload safely from a level position. 15-inch tread plate lip extends into the trailer or over the dock edge for smooth transitions. Standard safety chains hold the yard ramp securely to the trailer or dock; for dock-to-ground applications, optional chain brackets are available.
Solid Rubber Pneumatic Profile Tires
The hydraulic system engages two hydraulic cylinders for smooth and quick raising of front lip to the proper dock or trailer height. Simply open the release valve to safely lower the unit into position. The pump is mounted internally to protect it from accidental damage.
The tubular steel box undercarriage assembly has solid rubber pneumatic profile tires that make positioning the yard ramp easy.
Trailer Stabilizing Jack
A crucial step in loading and unloading safely is the use of a stabilizing jack to prevent upending of a semi-trailer not attached to a trailer. Choose from 4 designs and several capacities to meet your needs.
