They are also most often mounted in a pre-formed pit at the dock commonly used to reduce the grade between the dock floor and the trailer bed. Various sizes and capacities allow for a large amount of flexibility. Hydraulic dock levelers have added safety features and save time in operation and maintenance.

- Structural Steel Frame
While some manufacturers use flat stock or other light duty material, McGuire uses 4" structural "C" channel on all pit levelers.

- Regenerative Hydraulic System
Dual port cylinders allow hydraulic fluid to travel in both directions, creating a faster lift. Dual ports are found on both lift and lip cylinders.

- Full Width Rear Hinge
McGuire is the only dock leveler manufacturer that employs a full width rear hinge mounted in compresssion, using a 1" diameter solid steel rod. So indestructable, it carries a lifetime warranty.
