MDLM Mechanical Edge-of-Dock Leveler

MDLM mechanical edge-of-dock leveler is designed as a simple and economical equipment ideal for servicing trucks with minimal height differences with the dock. The leveler is used in warehouses and logistics facilities docks where it’s necessary to provide fast and secure loading and unloading. It works without electrical supply and can be used in case of backout or if pit leveler installation is not feasible. The leveler is lifted with operating handle by one operator. While lifting the lip opens. Next the platform lowers until it reaches the vehicle load bed. Once all work is completed the leveler lifts, the lip lowers and the platform returns to its original stored position. Installaion of the EOD leveler is performed on a special ramp or in the pit.

Complectations

Mechanical edge-of dock leveler
Mechanical edge-of dock leveler "Minidock" of suspended type has two BR450×250×100 bumpers as standard. Bumpers for the embeded type EOD leveler should be purchased separetely.
Wheel guides. They are used to direct reversing vehicles safely and quickly on to the loading docks thus preventing damages to dock shelters or the building. The guides are designed to minimise possible contact with the truck wheel rim. They are made of steel tubes with 159 mm diameter and positioned in front of the loading bay. These wheel guides are fixed to the surface with anchor bolts or embedded into a concrete foundation.
