The Blue Giant U-Series mechanical dock leveler is easy to use: simply pull the release chain and let the heavy duty main lift springs go into action. The deck rises and the lip extends smoothly to the locked position. Then ‘walk’ the deck down to the truck bed and begin loading or unloading.
U-Series Mechanical Highlights
The U-Series mechanical dock leveler’s hold-down system is controlled by a 45,000 PSI precision-milled steel ratchet with 13 deep grooves and four pawls, offering strong locking capability. During loading and unloading, the friction disk brake enables the deck to seamlessly match the trailer height, minimizing cross-docking bounce. The increased contact surface with the disk brake creates even wear on the brake pads and results in greater hold while reducing maintenance requirements.
