Find the right loading dock leveler for your facility!

Of the types of loading dock levelers available to you, mechanical and hydraulic levelers guarantee top-quality performance.
Mechanical Loading Dock Levelers are ideal for companies with smaller loading docks. Operated manually, these loading docks also have a fairly simple and easy-to-use design that can be implemented into the layout of your loading dock.
Hydraulic Loading Dock Levelers can handle even higher capacities, making them a good choice for a busy, larger loading dock. They have sturdy platforms perfect for any and all of your shipments.
Loading dock levelers can either be selected to be temporary, portable units that you can remove as needed or as permanent installations in your busy loading dock area. No matter what your specific needs are regarding your leveler, S.W. Betz has a wide range of leveler models available to you.
To ensure your loading dock leveler’s longevity, consider implementing a preventative maintenance contract plan. Preventative maintenance contracts create a schedule of services and maintenance updates for your loading dock levelers that guarantee they stay in good condition and are able to function as needed. By utilizing a preventative maintenance contract, you not only extend the life of your leveler, but also greatly reduce the safety risk and liability involved with using a faulty piece of equipment.
