If the use of loading dock levelers is essential to your business, you understand the importance of keeping it functional and productive at all times. An edge-of-dock leveler is often an economical and effective solution. Depending on your specific needs, the right edge-of-dock leveler will service trucks with a range of height differences and where space is an issue.

We work with only leading industry providers of loading dock equipment at Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands & NYC. When it comes to selecting the ideal edge of dock leveler for your specific application, there are two basic options, hydraulic or manual edge-of-docks.

McGuire offers two effective units to meet either need:

These low-cost units are ideal for operations working with captive fleets and similar truck bed heights. An effective alternative to the pit-style mechanical dock levelers, these units mount on the face of the loading dock. The efficient design also allows this unit to be used where a pit is not available and as a retrofit to an existing facility. These edge-of-dock levelers utilize easy-to-operate "Lift Free" EOD and are constructed with the same high-quality materials
