DOCK LIFTS

Transfer Loads from Any Truck Bed Height to Any Loading Dock Height...
Even Ground Level!
The Advantages of a Dock Lift
Dock lifts are more versatile than dock levelers, faster than manual
loading and unloading, safer than ramps and inclines and less
expensive than recessed truck wells. That’s why every building
should have a Dock Lift.
A Model for Every Application
We offer seven standard dock lift models with capacities from
5,000 to 20,000 lbs., platform sizes up to 8' x 12' and a variety
of installation configurations to accommodate any loading dock
requirement. Models featuring an “M” designation are built for
use with two wheel dollies, hand carts, and hand pallet trucks.
“H” model designations can be used with powered devices
like powered pallet trucks, counterbalanced stackers and fork
lift trucks.
H - Series dock lift for
heavy loads (over 10,000 lbs.)
and/or forklift accessibility.
M - Series dock lift featuring Dura-Dock™
weatherproof construction.
The Fast, Safe, Easy Way to Service Any Truck
With nearly 5' of travel range, dock lifts can service any type of truck from vans and pickups to tractor trailers
and container trucks. Loads on dock lifts are always kept level making transport safer and easier than traveling
up or down inclines created by dock levelers or ramps.

Rugged Weatherproof Construction Features and Options
All Dock Lifts are manufactured with structurally
reinforced heavy steel plate platforms to minimize
deflection. Wide base design provides increased rigidity
to create the industry’s most stable dock lift. Model
DL5-59 and DL6-59 DURADOCK ™ dock lifts feature
corrosion resistant galvanized base and legs as standard,
resulting in longer trouble-free service even in hostile
environments.
