Oooooohhhhh Baby! Look at all that Structural Steel! Rolled steel and forklifts do not go together! Poweramp invented the hydraulic dock leveler and we made it STRONG to give years and years of trouble free service.

Check out that pump motor mounted on the underside of the deck! This leveler is easy to clean.

Wow! Toe guards with full piano hinges that fold under and lock into place when the leveler is raised, that is safety and longevity, no more toe guards sitting in the pit with broken tabs.
