How to Use Loading Ramps

Customers count on Copperloy for semi trailer loading ramps that are both durable and easy to use. Need to find out how to use loading ramps? First, use Copperloy’s hydraulic pump to raise the ramp in a ½” increment per pump motion until it reaches the desired height.

Next, connect a forklift to the loading ramp’s positioning sleeve with chains and position the ramp at the desired angle. Then, release the hydraulic pump valve to then allow the 15-inch lip to sit on the carrier body. Finally, connect the attached safety chains to the loading ramp and start loading.

Loading Ramp Safety

You can only maintain an efficient working environment when you maintain a safe working environment. When it comes to loading ramp safety, it all comes down to having an awareness of activity in the workspace and having common sense. For example, it is critical to be mindful of a vehicle’s center of gravity; keep the powered wheel of a material handling vehicle uphill. You should also use a spotter whenever backing down a ramp to prevent accidents.
