RE: Forklift Ramp Slope

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Rite-Hite dock leveler manufacturer says 7% maximum for electric pallet trucks, 10% maximum for electric forklifts and 15% maximum for gas/lp lift trucks.  Those are maximums for the equipment, it doesn't mean that those are desirable slopes.
