Features of Portable Loading Ramps

Copperloy’s used loading dock equipment offers substantially better functionality than other yard ramps on the market.


This 8-foot level off gives much easier access for forklifts onto loading docks, platforms, and trucks. This is an especially useful feature for portable loading ramps.


Copperloy’s design makes any loading dock operation a much safer, efficient process. The location of the hydraulic hand pump, however, is a stand-out feature. Our single-acting hand pump needs significantly less effort to operate relative to other industry products. Its location protects it from unnecessary dirt and damage, saving time on maintenance.


Forklift access can be a tiring process with many other industry yard ramps. Our ramps come with an end plate that is much shorter than a forklift’s wheelbase. The forklift’s front wheels can easily access the grating while maintaining rear-wheel contact with the ground.


A seven-inch curb prevents any runoff, allowing the forklift to travel smoothly and safely without encountering any bumps along the way.


These solid tires remove the requirement of constant maintenance. With their lubricated bearings, Copperloy’s pneumatic tires are extremely trustworthy and maintenance-free.

Companies looking to make a safer, smoother loading dock and increase productivity on a budget should consider Copperloy used loading dock equipment.
