- Easier operation – Portable and easily adjustable, yard ramps are user-friendly. Plus, the pump location on the outside of the yard ramp frame provides convenient access.
- Faster rise times – In comparison to standard two-cylinder pumps, a single-acting hydraulic pump raises up to two and a half times faster!
- Limited wear and tear – Rotation occurs on the innovative positioning sleeve. Traditionally, rotation takes place at the ramp connection. As a result, this greatly reduces wear on the ramp structure.
- Greater stability – A centrally located cylinder means less chance of tipping. Plus, these ramps feature an 8-foot level off as well as a 15″ safety-lip!
- Solid-filled pneumatic tires – Dominate rugged terrain without the risk of punctures and air leaks with solid filled, pneumatic tires.
Truck Loading Safety | Confidence with Copperloy
Safety is a leading Copperloy priority. Check out some of our top truck loading tips below!
Properly Secure Materials
Before transporting, it is crucial that the freight is secure. If not, it can lead to damage. Also, unsecured materials create many risks when unloading. Assure stability with load bars, vertical supports, road straps, and chains.
Remain Aware of the Loading Zone
It’s essential to pay attention to the surroundings. When large loading trucks are involved, this is even more critical! Stay out of the way when vehicles are backing up and remain in the driver’s line of sight. Then, don’t enter the loading zone until vehicles have come to a complete stop.
Map Gaps and Drop-offs
Copperloy has many helpful loading tools to bridge the gap from one space to another. Our lineup includes dock plates, dock boards, dock levelers, and more. Additionally, our equipment features safety lips that rest securely on platforms. As a result, making it easier to account for all gaps and drops and assure confidence where workers step.
Use Proper Lifting Techniques
Prevent accidents and injuries by adequately lifting when unloading. Be sure to lift with the knees! As a result, take the unnecessary strain off of the back muscles. Also, keep the object close to you while carrying. This technique offers more control and proper balance.
There you have it! Practice these simple tips to avoid accidents, injuries, and fatalities.
