Ground Protection Mats Black 1/2 Inch x 2x8 Ft.

The original Ground Protection Mats Black 1/2 Inch x 2x8 Ft. features maximum traction with a diamond plate tread mat design. Simply the best made ground protection mats on the market - hands down, this claim is backed-up by our Lifetime Warranty on all temporary ground protection mats that we sell.

Heavy machinery can tear up a lawn or sports field in a hurry, even if the ground is only a little damp. For protection for the grass against the tires or tread on construction equipment, install the ground mats for heavy equipment from Greatmats.

These mats consist of highly durable materials that can support a load of up to 120 tons. They’re perfect for creating a temporary road to keep the grass in functional condition after you complete the construction work.

Size and Shape Options

Our ground mats for heavy equipment measure 2 by 8 feet, which makes them a little easier to handle than wider mats. One or two people should have no problem when trying to haul these 43-pound mats into and out of storage.

Product Questions:

Q: Can these mats be used in the winter or will they crack?
A: The mats will not crack when frozen.
Q: What is the weight per mat?
A: Each mat weighs 43 lbs.
Q: We have a gravel lot. We get food deliveries on pallets that are unloaded by heavy duty hand driven pallet lifts. The wheels of these lifts sink into the gravel lost and get stuck. Will these mats support that weight and keep them from sinking in.
A: These ground protection mats should support the weight of the lifts over gravel.
Q: Will the mats support a 80'' wide telescoping man lift over sand?
A: Yes
Q: Will these mats handle a 25 ton excavator (steel tracks) to walk and turn on asphalt or with they rip/break apart?
A: These mats will easily support that weight. However steel tracks will void the warranty.
Q: how much does the 4x8 1/2 inch mat weigh. Do you have any mats that are like 1/4 inch thickl. These mats are probably overkill for what we use. We only have 6,000 pound machinary that we use.
A: Please contact a member of our sales team for assistance with this. We can be reached at 877-822-6622.
Q: I am building a patio in the back yard and the machine that carry the cement have to drive through my lawn to get to the back.what size mat would you recommend?

Good service

Customer Rating:

Our crew in Tennessee really like the mats we got from you, which were the 2x8 mats. The only thing I heard that was somewhat negative was that they wish they had built in handles for lifting them up, which they built themselves out of rope. All in all the mats are working great. Thank you

Customer Rating:

These mats are high quality and at a very reasonable price. They have a very helpful staff and fast shipping.

Customer Rating:

Make sure if you need a power end gate because of no dock that you emphasize this for ease of delivery......was told product would come on two pallets....whoops wrong again.....1 pallet (very heavy!!!!!) Product is awesome though!!!! :)

Customer Rating:

Great mat product we bought was a better quality product than we expected. The delivery company was awesome about making arrangements for us to recieve our product we actually picked up from them instead of having it delivered it more convenient for us to pick it up. We are 100% satisfied with our product and delivery company
