A 36’ long ramp usually has 30’ of incline and 6’ of level-off. Level-off is essential so that fork tines are parallel with the ground when working the back-end of the truck, container or rail car exceptionally well. A 30’ ramp is usually used in a ground-to-dock applications. The dock serves as the level-off. Dock heights vary but a generally about 48” high.

The Yard Ramp Guy requires our customers to fill out our Ground-to-Dock Worksheet and provide corresponding photos prior to ordering a ground-to-dock ramp. We get about 12-18 calls each year from people who bought the wrong ramp from another dealer. We help them sell the wrong brand new ramp and then assure the second ramp matches their dock.
