Constructed for the toughest, roughest loading dock

Advanced, superior strength is provided by this leveler’s platform structure that has continuous welds at hinge tubes and the header plate as well as a 33% dual side beam to deck weld pattern.  The frame is constructed of five hinge connections, at least five solid steel rear supports, and a full width rear hinge rod.  The lip and deck plates as well as the beam sections and lugs are built of at least 50,000 – 55,000 PSI yield material.

Activated by easy release

The operator releases the holdown at the back of the platform until the deck is elevated and stopped.  He then walks the platform down until the standard 16” lip extends onto the truck bed and connects 12” below and above floor level.  While the truck is loaded, the deck floats up and down.
