To order custom built ramps give us a call at (888) 651-3431 and we will go through a simply custom ramp form with you to get the necessary information to allow our Engineer to determine which loading ramp is best for your needs. Some examples of vehicles that you may need custom ramps for are Forklifts, Ditch witches, Pavers, Street sweepers, Back Hoes and other heavy equipment. Equipment with smaller wheels will require the ramp traction cleats to be closer together because of the concentrated load in a small area. The lower foot of the ramp may need to be a stub toe or knife cut foot depending on what type of equipment it is. Typically the knife cut ramps are used for loading forklifts, automobiles or other small wheeled equipment and a stub cut foot is recommended for heavy equipment like skid loaders, wheel loaders and commercial trucks because the ramp is reinforced at the foot allowing it to be used a different load height without curling up the bottom of the ramp.
There is also the possibility if your using steel tracked equipment to have the ramps rubber coated or you can put conveyer belt or other rubber over it so it does not tear the aluminum up. Our Heavy duty ramps are made out of T6 aluminum which is a grade of aircraft aluminum some of the strongest and purest out there.
