Shallow Pit Mounted Truck Leveler – Dock Flexibility

Autoquip Truck Levelers put your trucks where the work is, leveling the truck bed to exact dock height for loading and unloading applications. The 10-foot wide standard Shallow Mounted Truck Levelers feature solid steel construction and high capacity lifting cylinders and are offered in either 14-foot or 20-foot lengths and 40,000 pounds or 60,000 pounds capacity.

The leveler's 5-inch profile height requires only a shallow pit to rest the Leveler at grade, eliminating the need for an approach ramp or deeper, more costly, excavations. This space saving solution still delivers the strength that common among all Autoquip products.

Despite the shallow platform, a substantial 30-inch of above-grade will accommodate a wide variety of trucks and dock configurations for almost any dock leveling applications. A powerful and efficient hydraulic power unit decreases setup time and increases dock productivity, while the platform's 4-way tread plate covering ensures a safer, slip-resistant, footing.
