Cost-Efficient Dock Access with EOD Levelers
Edge-of-dock levelers (also known as EOD levelers) are much like regular dock levelers except no pit is required! These levelers have lower capacities, however are cheaper options when compared to a pit-mounted leveler. Edge-of-dock levels are still very effective solutions for allowing access between your facility and the transport truck.
Edge-of-dock levelers can be either Hydraulic or Mechanical. Much like pit-mounted levelers, hydraulic EOD levelers use a hydraulic piston underneath the plate in order to maneuver up and down, while mechanical EOD levelers use a chain hoist system.
Also, much like pit-mounted levelers, edge-of-dock levelers are good for applications with a flat or sloped entrance into the dock.
