Dock boards are an essential part of material handling equipment as they bridge the gap between the end of the dock and the truck as workers are loading or unloading. Dock boards need to be transported and deployed for every use however. Dock levelers from A Plus Warehouse, a leading nationwide dealer of material handling equipment, are a convenient way of getting access to trucks for loading and unloading with less of the hassle of dock boards.
The benefit of a dock leveler is that it remains with the dock, and is already set up when a truck arrives. The Edge O Dock leveler is an interesting dock leveler that actually hooks onto the steel edge of the dock. The lip is actuated by a metal pull handle, or can be operated mechanically or hydraulically.
Sturdy, compact, economical and reliable, the Edge O Dock can never get lost or stolen. The Edge O Dock leveler is easy to install and operate, and the guards keep feet from slipping under the ramp. It's easy to operate, and once it’s installed, it never slips out of position, thereby eliminating pinched fingers and toes. Constructed from heavy duty steel construction, the Edge O Dock takes a pounding year after year and still provides reliable service.
“The Edge O Dock leveler is best for when you are loading and unloading trucks that are lower than the dock but very close in height to the dock,” said Ed Stairman, president of A Plus Warehouse. “When you have a larger height differential, we strongly suggest the automatic dock leveler or one of our other top of the line dock levelers.”
The Edge O Dock leveler is available in mechanical, hand hydraulic or electric hydraulic. A Plus Warehouse has been selling dock equipment for many years, with their sales people regarded as among the best in the industry. Their philosophy is to give the customer enough information to make a purchase within two minutes of looking at the A Plus Warehouse website.
A Plus Warehouse carries all the essential material handling equipment including work benches, storage cabinets, plastic bins of all types, metal shelving, anti fatigue matting, packaging supplies and platform trucks. For more information on ordering, call 800-209-8798 or visit www.apluswhs.com.
