With its direct extension spring design there are no moving parts, eliminating costly service calls and downtime when a pit is inoperable. Deck and lip are constructed of 55,000 lb. minimum yield steel tread plate. Lip keepers serve as night locks for security and provide safe cross traffic support when unit is stored. Dock Bumpers and grease fittings on lip hinge are standard with each unit. These features coupled with an easy pull chain and walk down activation make this leveler one of the simplest to use for day to day use.

For applications where trucks are coming in lower than the Pit Leveler operating range, we suggest using wheel risers. Getting yours trailer bed up to a safe working height, at or above dock level, is essential to the proper freight handling. Wheel risers are also a great product for loading docks receiving a variety of trucks heights.
