Watch the video above to see our large range of alloy ramps from small mower ramps up to large machinery ramps.

Benefits and Features of our Aluminium Loading Ramps:

  • Lightweight alloy you can lift safely, with much less strain on your back.
  • Can be stored inside or outside as and they won't rust.
  • The aluminium extrusion has been specifically designed for purpose. The extrusion used is not “off-the-shelf.”
  • One of the few high capacity loading ramps in New Zealand.
  • The bulkhead (the end that rests on the deck) has been designed with two "gripping teeth" that have two functional purposes;
    • Allows the head of the deck pins to not protrude and be exposed to damage from tracks.
    • Adds extra grip at the top of the ramps so the ramps don't slip off the deck while loading.
  • If these sizes don't suit, customised options are available to get the ramps you need for your application.

Did you know?

  • The 6000kg and 7,500kg options come as left and right handed? A section of the bulk head is removed to allow the ramps to be pushed to the most outer point of the bin to allow for the overall width of the wider track width on the larger machines. If a customer loses or damages a ramp and needs it replaced, they need to know which side and the serial number.
  • 20 degrees is the "safe zone" for the travel angle of ramps. What the machine runs on (tracks, wheels etc) also plays a factor. The likes of a tractor may be able to travel up a steeper angle than 20 degrees.

Points to be considered when working out what ramps will work best for you:

  1. The total weight of your machine (including diesel).
  2. The track or tyre width.
  3. The height of the truck/trailer deck from ground.
  4. What is an acceptable gradient for your machine is.
