What is a dock leveler, and what is its purpose?

A dock leveler is a piece of equipment that bridges the gap between your warehouse and the trailer. There are many variables that influence what kind of dock leveler is needed. Some of those include:

  • Dock Height
  • Trailer Height
  • Forklift and load weight
  • Trailer type

We service and repair all makes, models, and sizes of dock levelers. If it is determined that a replacement dock leveler is needed, FMH Dock & Door supplies several quality models of pit style dock levelers. With capacities ranging from 20,000lbs – 60,000lbs we can outfit your dock with the right equipment for your operation. Types of dock levelers include Mechanical, Air bag, and Hydraulic.

If you need something a little more light duty, our line of Edge of Dock Levelers (EODs) range from 20,000lbs to 35,000lbs and can be Mechanical or Hydraulic.
