    FEATURES

    Copperloy® yard ramp level off image

    8-FOOT LEVEL OFF

    Copperloy mobile ramps have an 8-foot level off feature. This gives forklifts easy access onto trucks, loading docks and platforms. This feature makes for a very stable yard ramp and is especially useful on mobile ramps.

    Copperloy® yard ramp lip design

    15-INCH LIP

    The 15-inch lip designed to firmly rest on the truck carrier body, dock floor or platform. Our mobile ramps come equipped with eight-foot-long safety chains. Chains join the ramp to keep it from pulling away.

    Copperloy® hydraulic pump on yard ramps

    HYDRAULIC PUMP

    The single-acting hydraulic hand pump design requires half the effort needed to raise ramp compared to other mobile ramps. The pump has been relocated so that it’s protected from dirt, debris, damage and makes maintenance easier to perform. The handle conveniently stores out of the way when not in use.

    SMOOTH SIDE PLATES

    Smooth side plates or curbs are standard. They enclose all working components, while also protecting them from possible damage from other equipment.

    Copperloy® low end plate ramp

    LOW END PLATE

    We designed an end plate that is shorter than the wheelbase of most fork lift trucks. This way, front drive wheels can reach high-traction grating, while rear wheels are still on the ground. The plate comes standard with beveling from the underside. This helps to provide an easy and smooth ground-level entry. It also eliminates jolts and bumps as the fork lifts travel on and off the yard ramp, with or without a load.

    Copperloy® grating for yard ramps

    DECK GRATING ON OUR YARD RAMPS

    High-strength steel is standard on all Copperloy yard ramps. Grating bars constructed for durability in the roughest of applications. Bars spacing is 1-3/4 inch apart to allow snow, rain, and other debris to fall through. The serrated grating helps to ensure an all-weather, high-traction running surface.

    Copperloy® dock ramp safety curbs

    SAFETY CURBS

    7-inch high curbs are standard on all Copperloy ramps to help prevent accidental runoff with a patented box frame.

    Copperloy® ramp tire design

    The solid/pneumatic tires are standard on all Copperloy mobile yard ramps and are ideal for all applications. The tires do not require air to fill, are maintenance free, and have lubricated-for-life bearings.

    Copperloy® ramp positioning sleeve

    THE YARD RAMP POSITIONING SLEEVE

    The position sleeve allows the ramp to maneuver 180 degrees which reduces loading/unloading time and increases productivity. The fork slides into the positioning sleeve and the ramp easily positions into place. The positioning sleeve comes standard with all steel mobile yard ramps. The sleeve is not intended for long-distance towing.

    Copperloy® forklift ramp tow bar

    TOWBAR

    The towbar is an option on both steel and aluminum mobile yard ramps which attaches to the lower end of the loading ramp. Allowing towing of the ramp for short distance (within your facility). The max towing speed is 5-mph and is not intended for over-the-road towing.
