The type of ramp you get will depend on the type on machine you are loading. An ATV will need some pretty strong ramps because they are so heavy. If you already have automotive ramps these will work great.
One of the best materials to get for a ramp is aluminum. Aluminum is strong and can hold a lot of weight. It also lasts a long time and does not rust.
You can also choose between a ramp that folds up and one that does not. Folding ramps are very convenient for people who don’t have a lot of room in their truck or trailer. Folding ramps can even fit nicely into a car so that they are stolen.
To prevent your ATV from sliding off the ramps, you will need a non-skid surface. It will normally be made from a rubbery material so that the tires can keep a good grip during loading. This is especially useful when it’s raining or if your tires are wet.
Safety is a huge priority when loading ramps. If your ATV slips off the ramps you can damage parts of the ATV like the ATV shocks.
One way to keep your vehicle from sliding out is to have your ramps strapped in place. Lots of ATVs come with safety straps. If yours don’t have these straps already you can usually find a way to make your own.
Loading ATVs is a big chore. Make sure you know exactly what you’re doing to keep your vehicle and those loading the vehicle safe. It’s better to be safe than sorry even if it takes you a little extra time.
