It’s all in the name

The Heavy-Metal Series lives up to its name.  Maximum strength is achieved by a platform that is a centralized welded structure with continuous welds at the header plate, hinge tubes, and the beam all constructed of at least 50,000 – 55,000 PSI yield material.  Additional support to the deck plate is provided by welded side guards while 4” of side-to-side tilt without a pinch point is provided by the fixed rear hinge.
This Series Leveler comes equipped with more standard performance features than any other comparable leveler.  These features include an integral maintenance strut, retracting solid steel deck stops, end loading control, working range toe guards, and night security locks.

Activated by soft release


The operator releases the holdown at the back of the platform until the deck is elevated and stopped.  He walks the platform down until the standard 16” lip reaches onto the truck bed and engages the truck bed 12” above and below floor level.  During loading the deck floats up and down.
