Choosing your Hyway Ramps is easy! You’ll need to consider three points – Weight, width and height.
- The total weight of your machine. (The rated capacity must exceed the heaviest axle or concentration of load. For more information see ‘Capacity Guidelines’.)
- The track or tyre width. (Ensure the machines tracks or tyres won’t touch the side beams when loading or unloading.)
- The height or your truck/trailer from the ground. (Hyway recommends a gradient of around 20° when loading excavators, tractors, bobcats etc. Other vehicles or implements may have a lower clearance and need a gentler gradient. We can help you decide on the safest length of ramp if you know your deck height.)
