A hydraulic dock leveler equipped with Rite-Hite’s Smooth Transition Dok System® and push button operation, allows the operator to raise or lower the dock leveler rather than using a manual pull-chain process. Additionally, Rite-Hite hydraulic loading dock levelers contain a Self-Flexing deck that helps prevent injury caused by whole-body vibration (WBV) and damage to equipment or products. This helps the forklift driver to safely navigate uneven trailer loads, as the hydraulic dock leveler flexes up to 4-inches under its own weight to bring it to parallel with the trailer bed floor.

Hydraulic Dock Leveler Benefits

  • Lower Lifetime Ownership Costs – Unique structural engineering stands firm under extreme warehouse demands to lower repair and maintenance costs, while increasing product lifespan.
  • Hydraulic Leveler Upgrades - The Safe-T-Lip® dock leveler upgrade, among other upgrades, helps provides an additional layer of safety by providing unobstructed end-load access and increasing productivity by reducing operating time.
  • Maximum Safety – Exclusive features help prevent rapid free-fall, vacant dock drop-off, Stump-out, threats during maintenance, and more!
  • Increased Productivity – Effortless push button operation for a wide range of solutions such as high capacity, full-width end-loading, drive-through, environmental control, and supply chain integrity.
  • Smooth Transition – Complete loading dock system designed to help reduce chronic injuries, prevent absenteeism, and eliminate damage to products and equipment.
  • Ergonomically Friendly - Hydraulic dock levelers do not require the dock operator to use their weight to position the bridge or bend or reach to manually pull a chain for raising and lowering the hydraulic dock leveler.
  • Non-Adjustable Velocity Fuse - helps stop rapid leveler descent with a heavy load on the platform; providing ultimate free-fall protection.
  • Industry Leading Warranty – Rite-Hite offers a variety of warranties that are based on your specific equipment and facility needs.
