  • Each unit is washed with phosphoric acid, fully primed and then finished with baked enamel.

  • Reservoirs are mild steel.
  • These units conform to all applicable ANSI codes.

All units are designed for use with pallet jacks, four-wheeled carts and hand trucks. Their rugged tubular construction offers more rigidity with less weight than the solid bar leg alternatives. A wide assortment of accessories for these units is available.MODEL 2400:This model was designed to fit into a typical dock leveler pit. The short platform length means the scissors legs are also shorter, therefore, travel is restricted to 40″. However, since dock levelers are only installed in raised docks, the 40″ of travel is more than sufficient.MODELS 2500K & 2010K:For decades, these have been the most popular dock lifts in the country. Their 10″ pits are very easy to build and afford crush space between the bottom of the bevel toe guard and the bottom of the pit, for any debris that may fall into the pit.T SERIES:Many dock designers are now specifying 8″ pits and this series of lifts is designed to fit them. The "T" series replaces our original "2000" series that was the industry standard for 25 years. It is not unusual for us to sell consumable parts such as wheels and cylinder packing kits for units that are 30 years old and still going strong. The new "T" series shares all of the robust engineering features of its workhorse predecessor and should serve equally well.

WHY USE WORK ACCESS LIFTS: Safety is the prime purpose of all work access lifts. They are designed to move production personnel, their tools and materials to ergonomically sound work positions to enhance both worker safety and efficiency. The alternatives to these lifts include ladders, scaffolding or simply allowing workers to work in awkward, tiring or dangerous positions.

WHERE TO USE WORK ACCESS LIFTS: Production applications are broadly varied and may include welding, painting, assembly, fabrication, inspection and maintenance. Because each application is unique to the task being performed and the object being worked on, each lift must be custom designed to the specific application. This guide is designed to help you organize and prioritize your requirements so they may be resolved into appropriate specifications for your work access lift.
