Looking for some info on this truck, would like to talk withsome that are using one of these trucks.

Was wondering if the ramp is strong enough for a fork truck, carrying a pallet of fert? I know regular ramps ( like enclosed trailers ) are not strong enough. They can handle a car because by the time the back wheels get on the ramp the front are on the trailer. Fork trucks are alot smaller and usually are carrying a load.

I have other questions as well
Thanks
Jim

fork truck gererally weigh about twice what they can pick up. So, if you have one that can pick up a 2000+ pound pallet of fert. it is gonna weigh about 5000+ pounds. I would guess around 8,000 pounds total.
