Hydraulic Dock Levelers

Long-Lasting Hydraulic Dock Levelers

Blue Giant’s high-performance hydraulic dock levelers are easy to operate with the touch of a button. Strategically welded enhanced beams provide an exceptional level of structural sturdiness, improving product lifetime.

Easy operation: Open and close the hydraulic dock leveler with a push of a button, unlike mechanical dock levelers which require workers to manually open and close the dock lip, causing workplace injuries to the neck, shoulders and back.

Less maintenance: Hydraulic dock levelers have no springs, hold-down mechanisms or other high wearable parts, which means fewer moving parts to break down. Hydraulic dock owners save up to 91% on maintenance costs over 10 years.

Blue Giant Hydraulic Dock Leveler
Extreme Model with Dual Deck Cylinders

Enhanced Beams for Strength

Each hydraulic dock has 8-10 J-beam (I-beam for Extreme and Ultra models) channels that are welded to the underside of the deck. These beams are welded at dynamic impact points to prevent warping and extend the lifetime of the dock leveler.

Less Maintenance

The inverted deck cylinder is continually self-bleeding, reducing internal corrosion and improving velocity fuse efficiency. Also, it prevents dust and debris from clogging up the cylinders.

Rust Proof Powder Coat

Rust-Resistant Powder Coat

The only hydraulic dock leveler in North America to feature a powder coat finish as a standard. This Blue Giant’s powder coat finish provides a long-lasting and rust-resistant finish and colour. It is available in blue, black, grey and yellow.

Robotic Welding

Consistent Quality and Strength

The Blue Giant’s state-of-the-art robotic welding ensures structural integrity and uniform quality. Get peace of mind knowing that every weld has the same quality and care put into it.

Advance Engineering

While the continuous one-piece headboard and single lip hinge pin enhance unit stability, enabling a stronger distributed load.

For 3 or 4 Wheel Forklifts

Additionally, the 7′ dock features just 6″ (152mm) of space between beams at the center. As a result, the dock is suitable for 4 or 3 wheel forklifts as a standard.

Improve Safety

In the unlikely event of premature truck departure, the velocity fuse limits free-fall of a loaded platform to a maximum of 3″ (76 mm).

In addition, the stationary side toe guards with high-visibility OSHA safety striping and ANSI compliant safety yellow full operating range metal toe guards reduce the risk of foot-related injuries at the loading dock.

Dock Leveler Deck Flex

Deck Flex Advantage

Ideal for normal loading conditions, the fixed rear hinge design allows the deck to flex up to 4″ when under load to ensure full-width contact between the lip and the truck bed.

The deck remains flush with the floor to eliminate pinch points and cross traffic obstruction.

Easy to Operate

Food and Pharmaceutical Safe

The NEMA4X (moisture and corrosion resistant) push-button control station enables sequenced deck and lip operation.

Maximize unit versatility with optional independent lip control that drastically reduces cycle time and energy use—perfect for below level or end-loading applications.

The control panel can be upgraded to a Blue Genius Gold control panel to integrate with your trailer restraints, doors and/or dock lights.
