The HED Series edge of dock levelers represent a low cost hydraulically operated unit that bridges the gap between building and truck where a minimal variance exists between dock and truck with a recommended working range of +/-3” and a maximum operating range of +/-5” above and below dock level. A standard Nema 4 single pushbutton control provides easy activation of deck and lip.
The “HED” has quiet dependable operation via a two cylinder design with deck and lip cylinders. The motor/pump mounts in readily accessible area on a shelf under the unit. The “HED” comes complete with automatic and hydraulic restore functions. Once trailer pulls away unit automatically stores and if trailer stays at dock unit can be stored hydraulically without the need to move trailer. It is Post Office approved with use of 3” high runoff guard for mail cart and personnel protection. Usage of an available 17” lip allows the HED to service refrigerated trailers.
Cold-rolled steel hinge pins, secondary steel gussets for added strength and extended life are coupled with a leveler lip and deck constructed from high-strength 55,000 psi min. yield steel safety tread plate. Grease fittings are also standard throughout the hinge area.
McGuire’s HED provides the same dependable hydraulic system as its “bigger” brother, the pit style, with two cylinder operation with one main cylinder for the deck plate section and a lip cylinder to activate the lip. All tied together with a motor/pump that is easily accessible on a shelf under the unit.
With the unit in the trailer as soon as the trailer departs your HED EOD automatically returns to the stored position with no action required by the dock attendant. If trailer stays at the dock you simply use the same simple push button to activate the unit till lip clears trailer and put it into stored position.
Simple single push button operation makes this a unit of choice for uniform and dependable operation in a high paced loading dock environment. A one button Nema 4 control allows effortless positioning both inside the trailer.
