A practical way to move freight efficiently over docks that are below industry standard in height.
A rugged and economical choice for older docks that are below the 50″ industry standard height. The DLM top-of-dock leveler allows a 10″ upward reach from the dock to the trailer, so that low docks can remain useful. DLM top-of-dock levelers are the industry standard for surface-mounted dock levelers, and are by far the most popular choice of motor freight industry professionals when they are working at low docks. The initial cost is low. They’re easy and safe to operate. Their rugged design requires little maintenance. These are quality-made dock levelers that will provide you with years of dependable operation. Deck and lip are constructed with high-strength steel safety tread plate (minimum yield of 55,000 psi on 20000 lb. capacity units and 70,000 psi on 25,000 lb. capacity units). Long-life hinges include grease fittings throughout. Bump blocks are our Extra-Heavy-Duty Series, in a tall configuration, with our Tuf-Cord® rubber bumpers, the toughest in the industry.
