Bluff Manufacturing Yard Ramps (also known as Forklift Ramps, Dock Ramps, or Truck Loading Ramps) are among the top brands on the market.

The 8 inch side curbs provide solid safety prevention to keep forklifts from running off the side of the ramp.

Large 18 inch solid tires make it easy to move and position the ramp over uneven asphalt and concrete surfaces.  Optional pneumatic tires are available for rough unpaved ground.

Wheels are positioned in the middle of the ramp for a balanced design, making maneuverability much better for your forklift operator.

Safety chains are included to ensure that the ramp does not pull away from the trailer or dock.

Each ramp comes standard with a fork loop used by the forklift operator to move and position the ramp into place.  This can be augmented by add a tow bar for moving the ramp over greater distances by pulling the ramp in tow by the forklift.

The 36ft model has a 6-foot level off area.  This is important because it enables the forks to get down level to access loads in the rear of the trailer.  Otherwise, you would need to unload the rear of the trailer first, then move the ramp into place to access the remaining load, losing valuable time.

The ramps have steel grating for traction in all weather.  The diamond plating at the bottom of the ramp is important and necessary.  It prevents damage to the ramp as forklifts approaching the ramp and turning would damage the grating if it ran to the edge of the ramp.  The plate is short enough so that only two of the wheels on the forklift are on the plate at one time allowing for sure traction.

The manufacturer recommends choosing a capacity that is 3 times the capacity of the forklift.  So if your forklift has a capacity of 6,000 lbs, then you would need a ramp with at least 18,000 lbs capacity.  In this case the 20,000 lb ramp would be appropriate for your needs.
