    That's strange, that's exactly what I was gonna post. It would be my assessment that your ramp doohickey would hold, at a minimum, the front end of a Sysco delivery truck. <br />

    I was right for once!!

    Well. They drove the front of a sysco delivery truck onto it to try to sink it down in the asphalt. Did not work, ramp survived though, so I guess that's good enough for me. If it can hold the front of a Sysco truck I think electric pallet jacks and pallets full of goods won't be a problem.

    Here are the pictures, wish they could be bigger so you guys could see it better but its a 48" X 44 1/2" ramp. 5" high, 2.5" squares stacked and cut at slope to get the right angle.

    Diamond is 3003, 1/4" tubing is 6061 T-6, 1/8" wall 2.5 " square. welded with 4943 at 200 Amps., 40/60%

    Estimation of weight carriage?

    Fellas!

    So I am trying to get a ballpark on how much weight this ramp can hold, Its a 1/4" 3003 diamond plate, frame is 2.5" 6061 T-6 square tubing, welded with 4943 ( i believe, its 4043's replacement so to speak) Trying to get decent pictures up but MY GOD its annoying.
Working...
