Copperloy Hydraulic Yard Ramps
Copperloy offers loading dock equipment with incomparable strength and efficiency especially in when it comes to yard ramps. The one-cylinder design applies significantly less pressure than two-cylinder ramps. This provides improved stability, faster raising speed and generally easier operation. Copperloy designs their ramps with the hydraulic pump on the outside of the ramp for easy access. They also experience less wear in tear compared to other competing products, providing much more longevity. The Copperloy yard ramp design leads the industry in strength, safety and efficiency. Furthermore, each yard ramp has a myriad of features that are invaluable for a loading dock operation.
Features of Copperloy Yard Ramps
Copperloy yard ramps perform at a much higher level than the average competing product. They provide features that make the loading and unloading processes much safer and smoother.
- 8-Foot Level Off: This feature is a staple of Copperloy ramps. The 8-foot level off gives forklifts incredibly easy access onto loading docks, platforms and trucks. This feature is especially useful for mobile ramps.
- Hydraulic Pump: Almost all aspects of the Copperloy design makes for a simpler, safer process. However, the hydraulic hand pump stands out as especially useful. Compared to other mobile ramps, this single-acting hydraulic hand pump needs only half of the effort necessary for other yard ramps. The location of the pump protects it from dirt and damage, simplifying the maintenance process.
- Low End Plate and Safety Curb: Many other ramps can make forklift access a pain. The Copperloy yard ramp, however, has an end plate that is shorter than a fork lift truck’s wheelbase. This allows for a fork lift’s front wheels to reach the grating while the back wheels are still on the ground. There is also a 7-inch safety curb to prevent runoff, which is standard in all Copperloy ramps. With Copperloy ramps, the fork lift can travel smoothly on and off without any large bumps along the way.
- Solid/Pneumatic Tires: Having solid/pneumatic tires removes the need for constant maintenance and refilling. Coupled with their lubricated bearings, these tires are reliable and are maintenance-free.
This is only a few of the advantages that a Copperloy yard ramp can provide. Any company looking to vastly improve their efficiency at the loading dock should consider Copperloy’s ramps and other loading dock products.
