How to Move a Portable Forklift Ramp – Mobile Yard Ramp

A mobile yard ramp or portable forklift ramp can be moved around on the jobsite.  Hence the name.  There are a couple of ways to move them.  Here at Bluff we offer either a “tow bar” or a “ramp-clamp” included in the cost of the mobile yardramp itself.

A tow bar is attached to the rear of the forklift truck to the apron on the yardramp.  It allows the driver to pull the ramp over a longer distance.  The speeds are very low but movement from one side of the yard to the other is made easier with this attachment.

A ramp-clamp is attached to the apron of the ramp and then the fork tip is inserted thru the opening and a clamp screw is tightened.  This connection can articulate and allows the driver more precise movement when moving the unit into position in the trailer or at the dock.
