Edge of docks levelers also known as mini docks or EODs are an alternative to conventional recessed loading docks. EOD levelers are typically mounted to the face of the loading dock and do not require a pit. EODs are a economical alternative to pit style levelers and dock plates and are safer and easier to use. There are limitations with edge of dock levelers when compared to conventional pit style dock levelers. One of the biggest limitations EODs have is they are not able to accommodate dock to trailer hight discrepancies much more than 2 inches which is a much smaller dimension when compared with conventional loading dock levelers. As with conventional loading dock levelers EODs can be actuated by either mechanical or electric/hydraulic mechanisms. Another thing to look at when considering EODs is that they do not easily accommodate manual hand pallet jacks. In the event there is even a small discrepancy in height between the trailer ﬂoor and dock ﬂoor height pallet jacks become diﬃcult to use.
