What to Look for in an Edge of Dock Leveler from Lots A Ramps
Six things to Consider before Buying an Edge of Dock Leveler:
Ease of Use
Lots A Ramps edge dock leveler is an easier-to-operate than others. Why? Because we offer market-leading equipment parts, coupled with superior safety. Our levelers easily mount to the face of nearly any dock. And if that’s not enough, we also offer transition plates and approach ramps to further take the weight off your shoulders.
Manual and Hydraulic Options
Employing our leveler is as simple as pulling the handle. We offer a manual leveler with the option of having a hydraulic power unit installed to it via a wall-mounted push button. That push of a button allows the unit to lift and rest heavy items, from 20,000 to 30,000 pounds to the height of a trailer bed for safe freight handling.
The Utmost in Safety
Safety is the top priority at Copperloy. Equipping our levelers with a safety maintenance strut to secure the unit while performing routine maintenance. Additionally, minimal maintenance needed, lubricating the hinges is simple on our levelers because they come with grease fittings.
Our leveler has been designed and engineered using a three-dimensional software package. Lots A Ramps exclusive lift mechanism and spring assembly will set the board in place with a fraction of the effort needed to operate a conventional leveler.
Lots A Ramps pays attention to all the little details. Another area of importance is the quality of our leveler’s bumpers. The rubber/steel block bumper combo is often times the first thing to go bad in a leveler. We employ a specially-blended rubber formula bumper that is 3,000 PSI. This truly is the longest lasting – and absolute best option – on the market.
Durability that Lasts
Durability is another detail of a properly functioning and lasting leveler. While levelers have some wear and tear at the pivot points, Lots A Ramps pivot points being equipped with bushings to minimize wear. Yet another attention to detail that sets us apart from our competition.
