Presto ECOA has introduced PDL Series Loading Dock Scissor lifts which allow users to transfer loads from a variety of truck bed heights to loading docks up to 59”.
Because the lift platform is always level, transferring between truck beds and docks can be easier and safer than ramps or other incline devices. Standard units are available in 5,000 lbs. and 6,000 lbs. capacities with roll-over capacity of 10,000 lbs. Base and leg sets feature a corrosion-resistant, galvanized finish.
Diamond tread steel platform sizes range from 6 x 8 feet to 8 x 12 feet and are designed for use with manual or powered pallet jacks. Standard features include a weatherproof pushbutton NEMA-4X control with 20 feet of coiled cord; beveled toe-guards painted yellow for safety; removable steel handrails with mid-rails and 4-inch-high kickplates; a hinged, diamond-tread throw-over plate at one end of the platform and a snap chain at the other end. PDL Scissor Dock Lifts meet or exceed ANSI Standard MH29.1, Safety Requirements for Industrial Scissors Lifts.
Lifts can be installed to accommodate any dock or loading configuration, whether the truck is parked perpendicular or parallel to the dock. Units are typically mounted in a concrete pit so they lower to grade level, which can be useful for facilities that have no loading dock at all.
