Advance Lifts Inc. has released two new dock lift bridge activators. Dock bridges allow lift trucks to travel between the dock and trailers. The new methods of bridge activation offered by Advance Lifts are by hydraulic cylinder and by winch. Both of these new methods allow for longer steel bridges and are an alternative to costly aluminum bridges.
The Hydraulic Bridge Activator option requires no additional electrical lines to the base frame. The control is a separate push button that can be moved to a convenient point on the platform. Thecylinder actuator is either mounted under the platform for units with a lowered height of at least eight inches or on the side of the platform for lower units. The platform working space is never compromised. Solid steel bridges with lengths up to 48 inches can be used with this option.
The Electric Winch Bridge Activator option requires 110V power at the base frame to power the winch. The winch is mounted on the outside of the handrails to preserve maximum platform working space while still being easily accessible. Because nothing is added to the underside of the deck, this option works well with very low units. The compensator spring is a visual cue for judging full bridge deployment and compensates for truck bed movement as loads are transferred between the lift and truck. One-piece steel bridges up to 48 inches long can be used with this option.
