Spring Hill, TN – PIONEER LOADING DOCK EQUIPMENT has launched their newest product, the “HDH” Hydraulic Pit Leveler. Heavy duty units are becoming more important as the industry continues the trend toward accommodating heavier loads. The “HDH” offers dynamic capacities up to 80,000 lbs.
The HDH is constructed with 55,000 lb. minimum yield steel and uses extra heavy rear angle with strategically placed gussets to provide maximum structural support and frame strength. PIONEER’s exclusive base frame support struts provide unparalleled structural reinforcement and safety. The unit also comes equipped with yellow and black diagonal striped full range toe guards.
When asked why the move toward heavier capacities, PIONEER’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Dan Jones, said, “As a whole, the material handling industry has begun to maximize shipping space, due to an increase in the cost of gasoline and raw materials. Therefore, heavier loads are crossing dock levelers on an everyday basis. In addition, many companies are shipping and receiving on more than one shift. Heavier capacity units will not only accommodate heavier loads, but will last longer in multi-shift operations. Our HDH pit leveler is durably made to fit these rigorous applications.”
PIONEER provides a full line of dock levelers, truck restraints, seals, shelters, and related dock equipment. More information is available on the PIONEER website (www.pioneerleveler.com) or contact your local PIONEER dealer. You can also contact the Customer Service Department at 1-800-251-3382.
