Mechanical Surface Mounted Dock Levelers

top of dock levelers
BENEFITS

The Top-Of-Dock is economical, allowing you to
    improve loading dock efficiency at a fraction of
    the cost of pit-mounted dock levelers. Initial cost
    is low. Maintenance is reduced to simple,
    periodic lubrication and adjustment.

The Top-Of-Dock is adaptable. A full 10" reach
    above dock height is attainable.

The Top-Of-Dock is easy to install on virtually
    any existing dock. No pit or other expensive
    concrete work is required. It requires only 35"
    back from dock edge.

mechanical surface mounted dock leveler
The Mechanical Top-Of-Dock operation can be
    classified as heavy. If light effort (less than 50
    pounds) is required, hydraulic dock levelers are
    recommended.

The Top-Of-Dock is stout. Face plate and lip are
    high strength steel safety tread plate. Precision
    bearings are used at load points. To safely
    accommodate a wide range of trailer heights, full
    18" high bumpers are standard equipment. These
    bumpers are molded of first quality rubber and
    secured to high strength 5/16" fully welded
    bumper blocks.

MECHANICAL OPERATION

Top-Of-Dock is offered in your choice of a mechanically
or hydraulically operated model. With either model, you
can choose between 20,000 or 25,000 lb. capacity.
No matter which Top-Of-Dock you choose, you'll enjoy
years of smooth, dependable service and easy operation.
For mechanically operated models, the operator simply
places the lip hook in the notch at lip edge, lifts to raise
the lip ad deck, then extends the lip into the trailer. With
our four extension spring counterbalance, the movement
is smooth. The leveler automatically returns to the stored
position when the truck departs. The lip can also be
retracted with the truck in loading position. By using the
lifting hook on a pin located at either side of the center
section, the operator pulls back until the lip clears the truck,
then lowers the leveler to return it to the stored position.
The lifting hook conveniently stores on the side of the
leveler. Lifting power requirement is adjustable.

THE TOP-OF-DOCK LEVELER
Older docks are typically below the 50" industry
standard height. The trailers bought by major trucking companies match this industry standard. The Top-Of-
Dock has a 10" upward reach to provide a good
working level on low docks. That, plus the clear
superiority and rugged dependability of levelers, is
why Top-Of-Dock is the overwhelming choice of the
freight handling professionals, the major motor freight
companies, when they work at low docks. They use
the Top-Of-Dock more than all other brands and types
of surface-mounted levelers.
NOTE: Any Truck with a bed height that is less than
the loading dock height can not be serviced with this
dock leveler.
SIMPLE INSTALLATION
Top-Of-Dock simply mounts to the top and edge of loading dock. In fact, little or no change is required on an existing
dock. A pit is not needed. For very little expense, Top-Of-Dock allows you to create and effective working height on
older docks. To reduce loading and unloading grades, it has a generous 63" span. Deck width is 72".
