Wheelchair Ramps on Stairs?
« on: June 12, 2006, 05:42:43 pm »

Anybody have any experience using the folding aluminum wheelchair ramps over stairs for load-in/out? I've been looking at them on-line and am thinking about picking up a 7' or 8' ramp to get me over 1-4 stairs.

Any suggested sources, make/models, or do's/dont's?

Thanks,
Eric

should be ok, but also consider that most touring companies use ramps rated for 2000lbs so be very careful.

I have one of these on our front porch for my two handicapped stepsons.
It works fine for wheel chairs and mobility carts but I am pretty sure it is rated at 650 lbs.
The ramp is very well made and folds in half both width wise and length wise. There is a bit of a bounce in it but feels strong.
There would not be a problem using it for possibly van smaller shows but two good size guys and an amp rack of pretty good size would be beyond what it is supposed to do I am pretty sure.
