Raymond supplies a complete range of hydraulic dock levelers from some of the world’s top manufacturers. Modernize your loading dock equipment by adopting the latest in industrial and safety design standards. Raymond provides an assortment of dock leveler options, including:
Hydraulic Dock Levelers
Designed for high capacity conditions, hydraulic levelers are workhorses that can withstand many years of sustained lift truck and pallet truck use. They are a safe, practical, high speed alternative for commercial dock levelers. Hydraulic options are the most commonly selected equipment in around the clock customer operations that turn many trucks per loading dock , per day. Although they’re more expensive than other leveler options in the beginning, maintenance and repair work expenses will typically be quite a bit lower than other options over the useful life of the leveler.
Mechanical Dock Levelers
Mechanical dock leveler systems are manually operated, meaning that they don’t provide the the equivalent efficiency and safety protection of a hydraulic system. These products rely on a spring mechanism instead of hydraulic pumps. They’re not difficult to use and relatively durable, but they do need a fair amount of regular maintenance.
Air Powered Dock Levelers
Air controlled dock levelers offer customers an “in between” alternative, more reliable than mechanical products and more economical than hydraulic devices. They use an inflatable air sack that lifts and lowers the deck surface. The sack is raised or lowered at the push of a button. These solutions are not as fast as hydraulic options, but are perfect for severe conditions like freezing climates and caustic substances. While maintenance is not expensive, renewing worn-out air bags can be costly.
Edge of Dock (EoD) Levelers
Edge of dock levelers are stand-alone units mounted to the top of the vertical dock face on the outside of the door. Although they offer less of a plate travel range than pit levelers, they offer easy installation and a lower cost. They are a good and safe option if there is minimal variability in vehicle/trailer height.
