In previous articles we mentioned about ramp angle and its importance for efficient work of our equipment. Now we would like to investigate this issue more carefully, because it influence significantly on whole efficiency of equipment usage.
If you have diesel forklifts, most powerfull type of forklifts, therefore ramp angle can be rapid accent, however if you use electric forklifts, thus ramp angle must be smaller.
Also type of cargo influence on determining of requested angle of ramp. For example, if the cargo is long (panels, wood bars etc.) it is reasonable to decrease difference between horizontal and incline parts of the ramp.
Another important element for ramp angle is type of transport with which you usually work. If you work constantly with low-bed trailers, so the angle of ramp is smaller, because height of low-bed trailers is about 1000 mm. Height of standard tent trucks is about 1200 mm. Sea container on platform is about 1300 mm from ground level. And finally is you work with railway wagons, so the ramp angle should be enough in order to let forklift climb on height 150-160 cm.
While producing mobile ramps AUSBAU, we take into account a lot of issues which impel on efficiency of our product for end-customers, therefore you can be sure that in mobile ramps AUSBAU the ramp angle comply with different purposes.
