What Capacity Does a Yard Ramp Need?
The general rule of thumb for Yard Ramp capacity is to multiply a four wheeled Towmotor or forklifts capacity by three or multiply by four if the equipment has three wheels. This simple calculation ensures your Yard Ramp has the capacity to handle the live load weight, while also providing longevity you should expect from a quality product.
Example: A 5,000 lb capacity towmotor or forklift would require
4 Wheels: 15,000 lbs. Capacity Board
3 Wheels: 20,000 lbs. Capacity Board
Note: If used in excess of 8 hours a day always move up to the next weight capacity
