Using our Magic Yard Ramps solves many of the problems associated with traditional container loading systems, particularly those using a hand operated pallet truck, or curtain sided trailers that have been loaded from the rear. Our yard ramps provide the ideal solution for container unloading, eliminating handling and requiring only one forklift truck operator instead of many.

  • Easy to use with simple height adjustment mechanism
  • Robust, the toughest container ramps on the market
  • 15T. heavy duty ramp design for the recycling industry
  • Sturdy construction and very long lasting

Compared to container loading ramps with unreliable hydraulic adjustment systems, our Magic Yard Ramps provides the ideal, cost effective, flexible solution for container loading by forklift truck. They are easy to use and virtually maintenance free !

The design of the Magic Yard Ramp includes key aspects to improve the efficiency of your loading and unloading operations :-

Anything working with forklift trucks has to be tough and robust. The Lantern Magic Yard Ramp is sturdily constructed and weighs 3.5 tonnes.

Height adjustment from 1025 to 1725 mm is by way of inexpensive and reliable landing legs rather than hydraulic adjustment

The standard Lantern Magic Yard Ramp has a safe working load of 10 tonnes but we also supply many special yard ramps with greater lifting capacity and ramps with extended platforms. We can fit your exact needs.
