Features of Digga Aluminum Ramps
One of the great conveniences of owning a telehandler or front-end loader is that they are available to move heavy loads from one location to another. This is very convenient when the front-end loader is stored at the same location as the material which needs to be relocated. Unfortunately, there are many times (particularly with the devices that are utilized around construction sites) that the location of the material is some distance from the housing of the front-loader. The machinery has to be hauled, which means they have to be loaded upon to the flatbed to be hauled to the new location and unloaded. For these uses, a lightweight aluminum ramp is the best answer to this problem of getting the telehandler loaded and unloaded from the flatbed. Some of the features of these high-quality ramps are:
• Double T-rail with patented interlocking rungs for enhanced safety and quality
• Three methods of connecting the rails to the flatbed
• CE, TUV, and GS certifications for safety and effectiveness
• Reinforced bottom and top rungs that provides extra safety and durability when loading the heavier equipment
• Reinforced near-ground-level bottom rung for ease of getting the front-end loader up the ramp onto the flatbed
• Improved beam strength to support the larger machinery
• 18 month warranty on most models
• Supports a standard range of 2t to 6.2t the has a rung design to prevent clogging from mud, with a new rung design that clean the wheels or tracks as the machine is loaded up the ramp onto the truck, which helps to minimize debris loaded onto the bed of the truck.
• Supports a universal range of 5.2t to 9t which is an excellent dual purpose ramp for rubber or steel tracked machines that helps to minimize slipping or loss of grip during the loading and unloading activities.
• Equipped with rubber tracks that are equipped for rubber or steel tracked machinery or for wheeled machinery
• Attaching ramps are available through pin that inserted through the ramp and tray, tongue that fits between the truck bed and the tail gate, and the chain to chain to the truck.
• The top run is level with the top of the main supporting rail minimizing wear and providing greater durability.
When determining which aluminum ramp is required, it’s best to remember that the longer wheelbase distributes the weight over a wider area of the ramp which ensures it can handle a heavier load. A narrow wheelbase puts more weight over a smaller area which allows it to handle a smaller load and smaller telehandler.
There are a variety of heavy-duty Digga aluminum ramps that are high quality and durable and can accommodate a variety of front-end loaders and telehandlers that allows them to be easily loaded and unloaded onto a flatbed truck with minimal effort.
