Rite-Hite Dock Levelers

June 2, 2010
The RHH-5000 leveler and RHJ-5000 Jumbo leveler, which can accommodate gross loads ranging from 25,000 to 40,000 pounds, are designed to minimize the risk of back injuries associated with jolts that lift truck drivers experience as semi-trailer trucks are serviced.

To address high levels of jolting associated with heavy loads, the levelers now feature a constant-radius rear hinge that reduces bumps and gaps between the leveler and the warehouse floor, while a two-point crown control on the leveler’s front lip provides a seamless crossing from the leveler to the truck bed. The RHH-5000 leveler is engineered to provide full access to the end loads of trailer. To do so, it features a slotted lip that can be positioned out of the way for unobstructed end loading. The RHJ-5000 Jumbo measures 102 inches wide. It provides full-width access to below-dock end loads, allowing lift trucks to manage loads without interference from pit walls or dock bumpers. Both levelers feature an extended lip chamfer for a smoother transition between the trailer and leveler.

The complete line of Rite-Hite hydraulic levelers come with biodegradable hydraulic fluid. Standard safety features include an automatic Safe-T-Lip barrier to protect against lift truck drop-off and an advanced hydraulic system for full-range leveler float and automatic free-fall protection. They also have push-button activation and hydraulic platform positioning and lip extension. All models have the Safe-T-Strut maintenance support strut that supports the leveler deck and lip for safe pit access during maintenance and a structurally strong platform with eight beams, four rear uprights and a front header. The entire line meets or exceeds ANSI MH30.1 standards.
