The portable lift does not require mounting in a pit

NORTON, Massachusetts — Presto ECOA Trans-A-Dock Surface Mount Loading Dock Lifts deliver the benefits and advantages of a permanent dock lift without the need for pit mounting. They are ideal for use in leased buildings, or places where permanent installation is not possible or practical.

Trans-A-Dock Lifts can access a wide range of truck bed heights up to 60 inches and transfer loads to fixed height docks or to grade level.

They are available in 3,000-, 4,000-, and 5,000-pound capacities. Platforms are constructed of safety tread steel plate and are available in 72 x 72 or 72 x 96-inch sizes with a variety of transfer configurations.

They also have safety chains at either end and a removable hand rail. Approach ramps and bridge plates also are built with safety tread construction and are equipped with lifting chains. Rectangular structural tube scissor legs minimize deflection and allow safety handling of off-centre loads.

A detachable dolly jack with flip down wheels on the base frame allows the empty lift to be moved when not in use.
