    Hydraulic elevating docks lower forklifts from the loading dock down to the ground. They allow forklifts to enter trucks with very low or high bed heights that are outside the range of docklevelers.

    Elevating dock lifts are typically a scissor-lift design. A 6 ft vertical travel is common for a standard dock. Lips on the dock allow movement of the forklift to the dock and to the truck (Image 1). Elevating docks also make it possible to load from the ground (Image 2).
