How Much Does a Dock Leveler Weigh?

Posted by AJ Porter on

  • Answer: 1,200lbs to 3,500lbs
  • Weights can vary greatly based upon size and capacity
    • Greater capacity translates into thicker steel, meant to accommodate heavier loads.
  • Because of the size and weight of dock levelers, it is necessary for levelers to be shipped by a reputable freight or LTL carrier. 
  • Always exercise caution with servicing under a dock leveler. Never crawl under a dock leveler without securing the perimeter, examining the structural integrity of the dock plate, and using the appropriate safety devices to avoid a sudden collapse.
