The ergonomically designed operator’s console is not only extremely functional, but comfortable as well. The adjustable cushioned seat is complete with a safety belt and a fire extinguisher located within easy reach. All gauges and controls are placed for easy operator viewing and access. Driving lights can be included for maximum visibility. The placement of the console keeps the operator away from moving parts while allowing a clear view of all operations. There are no obstructions between the operator and the rail car.
Buck ramps utilize an exclusive pawl-block locking system* to secure overall ramp angle. The components that make up the system are an integral part of the function of the ramp and perform consistently and in unison. These components are located on each of the ramp’s rear vertical support members. The pawl is a ratchet device that fits into the teeth of the vertical support. The block safely locks the pawl into the desired position. *Safety cover has been removed.
The ground ramp section of the ramp can be raised to an angle of almost 90-degrees. This feature is unique to Buck ramps and allows the operator even greater maneuvering capabilities with less parking space required when the ramp is not in use.
Buck’s cable lift system is based around the same safe, proven cable lift system found in office building elevators around the world.
