A properly equipped hydraulic dock leveler provides the smoothest transition for your forklift driver. Its ability to prevent rapid leveler descent, even while managing heavy loads, helps maintain a safe and reasonable slope from the facility floor to the trailer bed while floating below and above dock height.

Hydraulic Dock Levelers Provide Free-fall Protection for Forklifts

There is a good reason to choose a dock leveler that delivers free-fall protection by way of a velocity fuse. Without this hydraulic feature, the leveler may rapidly descend if the truck pulls away unexpectedly, which could lead to personnel injury or damage to products and capital investments.

Hydraulic Dock Leveler Benefits

  • Infinite Lip Control allows the operator to extend the lip or stop the platform at any time during leveler travel – this assists with loading expediency which enhances productivity and is accomplished with a dual push-button control box.
  • Environmentally Friendly biodegradable fluid outperforms traditional industrial grade fluid, even in extreme cold.
  • Low cost of ownership resulting from minimal required maintenance over the lifetime of the leveler.
  • Smooth transition from the facility to the trailer for your operations, forklifts and products.
  • Free-fall protection using velocity fuse stops to stop rapid leveler descent, even with heavy loads.
  • Compatible with other loading dock upgrades, like dock seals and shelters.
