Setting Up Your Dock to Ground Ramp
So you’ve purchased a new dock to ground ramp, congratulations! Now it’s time to make sure you put it to use correctly. Copperloy provides all of our customers with detailed installation instructions and a comprehensive user manual, however, this quick guide can be used as a resource as well.
First, of course, you’ll need to unload your ramp after shipment. Position two lifts, one on each side of the ramp, and have them engage the ramp, clearing it of the carrier and any supports. Have the carrier drive forward and clear the ramp, and the slowly lower the ramp to the ground, placing it atop wood blocks.
You will then be able to position the ramp into place. To set up your dock to ground ramp, you’ll need to first attach its safety chain brackets to the dock face. Then, keep the bumper plates as close to the dock face as possible to prevent movement, and square up the ramp in position on the dock surface. Attach the safety chains to the brackets on the dock face, with as little slack as possible to keep it secure.
It’s basically that easy, you have already successfully set up your facility’s dock to ground ramp.
