Used Yard Ramps For Sale

Used yard ramps, also known as portable loading ramps or portable loading docks, allow trucks to be loaded and unloaded when there is no loading dock available.  Used Yard Ramps, or dock ramps, can be raised and lowered to accommodate different truck heights.  Most yard ramps perform one of two functions. They allow traffic from the ground up into a truck bed or from the dock level down to the ground.   Forklifts and electric pallet jacks can also be driven up the yard ramp to load and unload trailers.  The steel bar grating provides traction.

Used Yard Ramp

One of the major benefits of a used yard ramp is they don't require a permanent docking bay. Construction of a docking bay can be quite costly, so it is only realistic in a more permanent facility that you will utilize for a longer period of time. For temporary situations or acquisitions at locations that don't have proper dock equipment, used yard ramps are a valid solution.  
 
Typically yard ramps are constructed of aluminum or steel. In more rugged environments where the temperature drops below freezing, aluminum is required. Welded steel yard ramps are much less costly, but are also much heavier. Usually, diamond plated decking is used to provide traction to prevent lift equipment and workers from slipping while transporting products.
 
Capacities greatly vary between ramps, but the industry standard capacity is 10 tons(22,000 lbs.), and there is also light duty (15,000 lb. capacity) and heavy-duty (33,000 lb. capacity). To determine which capacity is right for you, you will need to know the weight of your lift equipment and the weight of the maximum load to be carried on that equipment. For example, if a forklift weighs 5,000 lbs. and it can carry up to 4,500 lbs, a yard ramp with at least a 9,500 lbs. capacity should be used. This is definitely a "better safe than sorry" way of determining what capacity is right for you, but it will also ensure you never overload your equipment and stress the metal. 
 
Some additional safety features that you should consider are safety rails and hand rails to protect forklift operators and workers from falling off. The ramp should also float or "bob" up and down with the truck's suspension while products are being unloaded. This ensures that the weight is being transferred properly to the used yard ramp. Some yard ramps are considered mobile because they have an attachment so it can be towed, allowing them to be transported by a truck without using up your trailer bed's storage space. 
 
The difference between buying used and new? Besides saving almost 50% of your money and reducing lead time, the only difference between a brand new ramp and a used one is surface wear. You will notice superficial wear on the surface of the diamond plated decking, but this will not affect the overall capacity so you can buy in confidence when dealing with the right people. 
 
At American Surplus, we can guarantee some of our used products for 30 days to ensure your satisfaction. This is unlike anyone else in the industry. We also clean and inspect all used equipment prior to shipment. Other companies selling used equipment may do the same, but this is something you should make sure of as a buyer before making an investment.
