Vestil EH-78 Electric Dock Levelers are designed for busy loading docks. The service range is 12" above and below dock on a standard 48" high dock. These powered dock levelers feature simple one button operation: The operator pushes and holds the "raise" button to activate the hydraulic pump and raise the deck. When the deck reaches the raised position the lip extends automatically. The operator then releases the "raise" button and deck descends to rest on the trailer. After loading/unloading, when the truck pulls away, the deck descends to the full down position which trips the limit switch and automatically returns the hydraulic dock leveler to the level support cross traffic position.
Vestil EH-78 dock leveler capacities available from 20,000 LBS to 50,000 LBS.
Sizing a dock leveler for installation in an existing pit can be difficult. We recommend that you complete the Dock Leveler survey sheet above and fax it to us so we may recommend a size for a proper fit. Measure pit height at front and back of pit.
