These mud mats for heavy equipment guarantee turf protection through a durable, high-density, polyethylene plastic material that will not break when bent and which easily supports 60-ton loads. Ground protection mats are long lasting, and many of these heavy equipment mats carry a lifetime warranty. They are easy to use and maintain and can be used for temporary roads or walkways.

How To Determine The Right Ground Protection Mat for Your Situation

  1. Calculate the number of times you might need to use the ground protection mats per year./li>
  2. Determine the total weight of the equipment that the mats will need to support./li>
  3. Calculate the time frame needed for the ground mat installation./li>
  4. Determine the type of grade that the ground protection mats will be installed over./li>
  5. Consider the types of tires on your equipment - some landscape mats are only suitable for use with rubber tires.


Turf and ground protection mats can be used as road or walkways over sand, dirt, gravel, mud and many other outdoor surfaces. Some temporary road mats lock together, making a much more user friendly surface and providing better lawn protection. We even offer wedge shaped pieces for making corners in your protective surface.

Benefits of Ground Protection Mats

  1. Protect grass and other sensitive areas during excavation, without having to reinvest in additional landscaping
  2. Access anything with heavy equipment, even when it's positioned across your lawn, and even when the lawn is soft from rain
  3. Create temporary roads over difficult surfaces, like sand, gravel, and dirt
  4. Prevent mud from becoming an issue
  5. Keep your heavy equipment from getting stuck in your wet lawn, and maximize traction for easy maneuvering
  6. Reuse the mats time and time again, maximizing your investment and keeping your business looking professional
  7. With traction mats, there's none of the frustration of splintering, warping, water logging, or breaking down, like there is when you try to use plywood


Ground mats for heavy equipment can be custom designed and sold in kits. Please allow several weeks for manufacturing.

Get ready to trade awkward and unreliable plywood for a plastic road mat that provides traction and protection for your lawn. These lawn mats will not splinter, warp, water log, break down, or become slippery like plywood, while maintaining a professional look. You will be able to use these temporary road mats time and again, saving you money in the long run, since you won't have to replace plywood with each job.

Our heavy equipment mats have undergone meticulous testing, and have thus been guaranteed to withstand large amounts of weight from a variety of landscaping vehicles.

Ground Protection Mat Options


Greatmats offers a variety of ground protection mats for sale, and you'll have plenty of features and options to choose from. Mats are available in black, white, and clear. The clear mats allow for UV penetration, which accommodates grass growth. This is an option best used for temporary roadways intended to be left in place for a long time. Clear ground protection and portable roadway tiles can help keep grass cooler during hot summer days.

Ground mats for heavy equipment come in sizes ranging from 6 to 8 feet in length and 2 to 4 feet in width. Most mats are 1/2 inch thick. Depending upon their size, these mats can weigh as little at 33 pounds and as much as 86 pounds.

Many of our ground protection mats for sale feature two surface options: cleats or smooth surfaces. These two surface options can even both be incorporated onto one mat. Keep in mind that these mats provide much more traction than plywood does, especially when wet.

Portable roadway mats are designed for use over any outdoor surface, including grass, dirt and sand. This is a smart option for temporary roadways that need to be spread across a large outdoor raw or dirt surface for heavy vehicle traffic. The mats are easy to transport, and easily put together, thanks to our connection pin or clip system. Round connectors are best used for standard applications and flat connectors are preferable for walkways and flat surfaces, like athletic sport tracks.

Our TrakMat Ground Cover Mats are a versatile option. These mats feature a power cylinder tread surface for maximized traction, and the mats can handle loads up to 90 tons. The mats mold to the ground, thanks to their flexible construction, and they are unaffected by heat or cold. Hand holds make for easier maneuvering, and there are connector options available if you need to create a road.

If you're not looking for a large mat system, then consider our smaller modular tiles that are 6 inches wide and 2 feet long. These tiles come in black and gray options that are intended to handle vehicle weight. The tiles themselves, though, weigh less than the full mats do, so they're easier to handle and are suitable for smaller projects where you need to only cross a smaller area.

When working with cranes and other large equipment, our Outrigger Pads are a sound investment. These pads are lightweight and feature safety orange rope handles, so they're easy to maneuver. They provide excellent ground protection when used under cranes, industrial vehicles, lift bucket trucks, and more. These high load capacity pads provide exceptional support, and won't warp after being bent, ensuring you can use them time and time again.

Temporary Walkway Mat Options


For temporary walkways, you may want to consider our Portable Outdoor Floor Tiles. These durable polypropylene tiles are strong enough to support vehicles, and are both waterproof and UV resistant. The tiles will not separate under stress, and can even be rolled up for easy storage. They offer a 10 year limited warranty.

Our Ergo Matta Perforated Outdoor tiles are often used for outdoor play areas for daycare facilities, as they offer a 20-inch fall height rating and come in eight color options. These tiles offer excellent drainage, and their interlocking design makes assembly easy and fast. The Ergo Matta tiles come with a 5 year limited warranty.

Using Ground Protection Mats for Heavy Equipment


To use turf protection mats, simply place them down and drive over them with trucks, trailers, tractors or any other large, heavy vehicle. Link the traction mats together to create a protective roadway for hard-to-reach locations. The traction mats for heavy equipment allow heavy machinery to be used on top of delicate landscapes without causing any damage. These mats can provide protective, temporary roadways, even in wet, soggy conditions.

Once your project is completed, simply hose down your lawn protection mats to clean them, load them up, and head off to your next project.

Shipping Protection Mats


Lawn protection mats are shipped on pallets by freight delivery. You may want to consider purchasing a ground protection kit that includes a metal pallet, straps, and connector pins. These kits can make transportation and installation less of a hassle.

We offer some of the best prices available, as well as reliable customer service. Don't hesitate to call one of our expert service representatives with any questions about our ground protection mats for sale, or to get detailed shipping information.
