An edge of dock leveler is used to bridge the gap from the edge of a loading area to a truck or ramp. As opposed to a dockboard, EODs are fixed to the loading dock. Copperloy edge of dock levelers are ideal for use when trucks are backing up to a dock. With a simple pull of the handle, the leveler will lift over the top truck height for easy positioning. They mount easily to most docks, and are available in 66 inch, 72 inch, 78 inch and 84 inch widths. Our shipping dock leveler is capable of servicing trucks 5 inches above or below dock levels and is available in both 20,000 and 30,000 lb. models.
These are the perfect solution for when dock space is limited, or when the working range of a full-size, pit-style edge of dock leveler is not needed. Each Copperloy EOD is available with hydraulic or mechanical activation (lift) for smooth and reliable operation.
Simply pull back the handle and the lip will mechanically lift over the dock height. Then, a slight forward push of the handle will position the lip onto the truck floor.
All of our edge of dock levelers for sale are available with our quick, 3-day shipping.
Each Copperloy edge of dock leveler is smooth and easy to operate. Whether using the handle or the wall-mounted push button (on the hydraulic unit) your EOD extends fully to the height of the trailer bed for safe freight handling. All the benefits of the mechanical system are also available in our hydraulic material handling dock leveler models.
To ensure product durability, the EOD has been designed and engineered using a three dimensional engineering software package.
