Angle steel for beavertail decking on a skidsteer trailer

The larger trailers have angle steel laid corner up for decking on the beavertail. Seems like great traction for climbing up on to the trailer.

I'm redecking a small 6x10 with 2' beavertail skidsteer trailer and want to do the same. It doesn't need 1/4" thick angles like the big trailers though. Don't need the weight or the expense.

1-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 1/8" thick angles, every 3", would be the equivalent of a 1/8" plate steel floor, only stronger. 1/8" is what my dump trailer has and it's rated to haul a skidsteer. Maybe I could even space them a bit farther apart.

Wider spacing would definitely help on the weight. Thanks!

Those are generally called "self cleaning" ramps or beavertails. The ones on my 30 ft. gooseneck 1/8 thick 2" 6 inches apart. I think that you could go more than three inches. The skid steer tires being smaller than a tractor concentrate the weight more, but they don't get much extra weight hung on them.

I have a trailer with an expanded metal ramp and it is a nightmare. Just keeps tearing off, can't keep it welded. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Some sort of expanded metal would be a lot nicer. You get good traction on it and can even walk up and down it nice.
