Southworth's Dura-Dock Series loading-dock lifts feature galvanized construction for longer service life

Dura-Dock Series loading-dock lifts from Southworth Products transfer loads quickly and safely from any truck bed to any dock height, and vice versa, without ramps or inclines. Available in 5,000-pound and 6,000-pound capacities, Dura-Dock lifts feature corrosion-resistant, galvanized bases and legs as standard. 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.

A lift 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 also 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 by 8 feet to 8 by 12 feet. Lower-capacity models are designed to support loaded hand pallet trucks, while the higher-capacity models support loaded forklifts. Standard features include a weatherproof pushbutton NEMA-4X control with 20 feet of coiled cord; a diamond-tread, steel platform with beveled toe-guards painted yellow for safety; removable steel handrails with mid-rails and four-inch-high kickplates; a hinged, diamond-tread throw-over plate at one end of the platform and a snap chain at the other end; hardened steel pins operating in self-lubricated bearings at all pivot points; adjustable yet uniform lowering speed with a pressure-compensated flow-control valve; and excess flow protection for controlled descent in the unlikely event of hydraulic line rupture.
