The Dura-Dock Series of loading-dock lifts can transfer loads quickly and safely from any truck bed to any dock height (and vice versa) without ramps or inclines, according to manufacturer Southworth Products. Available in 5,000- and 6,000-pound capacities, Dura-Dock lifts feature a corrosion-resistant, galvanized base and legs. For higher capacities (up to 20,000 pounds), galvanized construction is optional. All Southworth dock lifts work from grade level to a maximum height of 59 inches.
Southworth dock lifts can be installed to accommodate any dock or loading configuration, whether the truck is parked perpendicular or parallel to the dock. Usually mounted in a concrete pit so the unit's lowered platform is at grade level, the lift is even more useful if the location lacks a dock altogether. A drain in the base of the lift prevents standing water if the unit is installed outdoors.
Platform sizes range from 6 x 8 feet to 8 x 12 feet. Lower-capacity models are designed to support loaded hand pallet trucks, while the higher-capacity models support loaded forklifts.
