Tipper loading ramps?

Hi All

Any recommendations on ramps for loading a tipper with a wheelbarrow?

Obviously something can be made with scaffolding planks etc but they can be slippy and very dangerous in wet muddy weather. So looking for something a little more professional without spending £400.00.

Also looking for a good mesh net for securing loads on a tipper.... any recommedations?

 

Thanks 

Daniel

  • You could try 8ft ifor williams ramps, I would get the aluminium ones though, i have some 6ft steels ones and they are heavy!

     We used to use a home made one. A 60cm wide ply top with 3 rails underneath for strength. It was covered in chicken wire, {well stapled down}. We then used batt as foot grips/steps either side and left a gap up the middle for the barrow wheel. Worked well even with muddy boots.
