CMD Dock Lift – Simple Dock Lifting

Portable, low capacity CMD Dock Scissor Lifts feature an exceptionally low 5.375" profile. CMD models offer a 72-inch x 72-inch platform, 3,000 pound or 4,000 pound capacities, and 50 inches of vertical travel. 

With solid steel construction, 4-way tread plate covering, a hinged approach ramp on one side, and a throw-over bridge on the other, the CMD is well suited for pass-through dock applications of pallet jacks and hand dollies or for transfer of carts for laundry, postal, and retail. Three open platform sides are available, making the CMD a flexible choice for common loading and unloading tasks.

CMD's onboard hydraulic power unit provides consistent power, while a quick-disconnect, single-phase electrical connection simplifies setup.

The standard dolly handle and flip-down wheel design makes it easy to move the CMD in a dock or parking lot area. Options such as alternate load transfer and bumpers can make the CMD a custom, yet simple, solution to your everyday dock lifting needs. 

CMD Dock Lifts have been manufactured in America's heartland since 1982 and are designed to the highest standards of safety and reliability.
