We have been adding a lot of new items to our Discount Ramps site. One of the new products that we have added is our new straight aluminum ramp.
These loading ramps have a weight capacity of up to 2,000 lbs and are made of light weight 6061-T6 aluminum. Since the trailer ramps are made of this light weight aluminum they will never rust. The rungs on these ramps are designed with a texture that helps to increase traction. The rungs also have a spacing of 2 ¾ inches so the wheels of your ATV, UTV, golf cart or other equipment will not have trouble making it up the ramp. Each aluminum ramp has a raised side to keep the wheels from falling off the ramp. The trailer ramps also come with two safety straps to help secure your ramps to the trailer or any other surface you are loading onto. Our aluminum ramps currently come in two sizes.
The first trailer ramp is 48 inches long by 16 inches wide with a height of 2 inches. Each trailer ramp weighs 12.5 lbs for a total weight of 25 lbs per pair. The second loading ramp is 60 inches long by 12 inches wide and has a height of 2 inches. The weight of this ramp is 16 lbs for a total weight of 32 lbs for the pair.
Discount Ramps is now manufacturing 20,000 lb. load leveler combo ramps for step deck trailers. These 20″ ramps are the most versatile tool a trucker can buy for their 102″ wide step deck trailers. The load leveler ramps are constructed of all aluminum and have built in support bridges so they can all be used as load levelers with the stake pocket support stakes. This universal design allows you to purchase a 2 bunk bunk system and upgrade it to a 4 bunk system by simply purchasing stakes instead of new ramps. The 20,000 lb. load levelers are secured to the trailer with stakes that slide over the pin ends of the ramps and into your stake pockets. The ramps are secured to the trailer with ramp attaching brackets called skid seats. These are available in aluminum that can be bolted or welded to trailer or steel skid seats that must be welded to the trailer. We also offer a spacer for the 26″ drop decks.
The #1 question we receive from truckers regarding ramps is, where do we store them? We are pleased to offer new aluminum ramp storage brackets allowing the entire ramp system to be stored under the deck of the trailer and locked up so they do not find a new home. These brackets are available in single model for the 26″ drop decks or trailers with minimum ground clearance under the deck of the trailer and a double model that allows two ramps to be stored in the same bracket.
