Spanish to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Transport / Transportation / Shipping / Heavy haulage
Spanish term or phrase: rampa sup.
Talking about the specifications for lorries/tractors (?) pulling and pushing very heavy loads on multi-axled trailers:

"Camión de tiro 8x4-660 hp. (250 t. rampa sup. 6%)"
"8x8- 652 hp.(400 t. rampa sup.8%)"
"Camión de empuje 8x4- 660 hp.(empuje 200 t. rampa sup.6%)"

My guess (and it is just a guess) would be something like "rampa superable X%" or the slope up which it is capable of hauling the 250, 400 or 200 tonnes respectively.

It is the way steepness is expressed.

The climb up Olde Stage features about an 8% average grade. ... feet in one mile for a 15% grade. ... The first 4 miles average between 6% and 7% grades. ...www.ucar.edu/eac/bike/steep.html
