Loading Docks


Hydraulic Dock Leveler

Easy push button operation for smooth, consistent operation with a hydraulic system that provides for full float at all positions

Positive lip extension and retraction with true regenerative hydraulic control

Below dock end load capability

Full width rear hinge mounted in compression with structural channel support

Structural “C” & “I” beam deck supports

Velocity fuse hydraulic fail safe stops platform within 1” to 3” in free fall situation

Subframe design allows for easy pit clean out

Integral maintenance strut is lockout/tagout compliant


Full width rear hinge in compression with
structural channel rear frame supports.
Optional full control panel with raise, lip out,
emergency stop, and ARTD feature shown.
Enhance dock safety with the addition of
a safety lip barrier to minimize possible roll
off accidents at the dock.


The platform is raised when the raise pushbutton on the control panel is depressed and held. When the fully yieldable lip extends the button is released allowing the extended lip and platform to lower onto the trailer bed at either above or below dock position. Upon trailer departure the lip can be retracted and the unit restored to a safe cross traffic position. In-use and stored positions are achieved without manual operation. Operable range is 12” above and 12” below dock level. Standard lip is 16” (18” lip standard on 75,000 lbs. and 100,000 lbs.). The platform is designed to service out of level trailers with up to 4” of flex and remains flush with dock floor. Platform and lip move up and down under constant hydraulic pressure.

Saftey Features

  • A velocity fuse limits the unit to a 1” to 3” drop in a fully loaded free fall situation.
  • Full range telescoping toe guards close off sides even in highest position.
  • Built in lockout/tagout maintenance inspection strut.
  • Lip keepers for cross traffic support and automatic night lock security against theft.

Platform is raised by hydraulic main cylinder and lip is controlled by a hydraulic lip cylinder. The hydraulic pump, manifold and translucent reservoir are an integral assembly with hoses routed under platform away from debris.

Motor is a 1.5 HP TENV at 120V or 208V single phase or 208V, 230V, 460V or 575V three phase. Controls are mounted in a gasketed NEMA 12 panel as standard. All components, connections and wiring are UL listed or recognized. Control panels manufactured in-house in UL rated control panel shop.

Loading Dock Bumpers
Two molded 4” thick x 12” high x 13” long bumpers are standard. Optional sizes and types are available, consult factory.

Slate blue is standard. Other colors available, consult factory.

Vehicle Restraint Systems
All Autodok® H series levelers can be equipped with STOP-TITE™ or HOLD-TITE™ vehicle restraint systems or a Light Communication System to help prevent unexpected trailer departure from the loading dock and minimize trailer creep during the loading/unloading process and to enhance communication at the dock area.
