A dock leveler is designed to allow safe and eﬃcient ﬂow of goods in and out of a commercial or industrial building. A dock leveler must be designed to support extremely heavy loads as well as accommodate a wide range of truck’s. The two most common types of loading dock leveler’s are mechanical and hydraulic systems. This designation is referring to the activation method. Mechanical levelers utilize a spring and hold down mechanism for operation while hydraulic dock levelers use a combination of an electricity and hydraulics to perform their functions. Generally speaking, the initial cost of a mechanical dock leveler is less expensive but they typically require more maintenance and therefore have a larger long term operating cost.
