Loading Dock Lifts: Pit & Surface-Mounted
Allows any truck to load at your dock
Among the most frequently used dock lifts, these lifts offer the most sizes and options, and are installed in a concrete pit in the ground or in a raised concrete dock. Platform sizes from 6' x 8' to 8' x 12'. Capacity Ranges: 5,000; 8,000-10,000; 12,000-20,000 lbs.
Dock lift functions without the expense of a concrete pit. Lift platform sizes range from 6' x 8' to 6' x 12', with 5,000 to 12,000 lb. capacity, and 60" raised heights. Use for hand truck to fork lift applications. Requires a level concrete pad.

Built tough for long, reliable life
Advance is a UL approved electrical enclosure assembler. Every dock lift you buy
from Advance comes with an electrical controller box that is UL approved with
the UL label. Other manufacturers can charge hundreds of dollars for this
important feature. With Advance, it's free.
Dock lifts are designed and built as an integrated torsionally rigid structure.
The base frame has a wide stance to provide maximum support. The scissors legs
are tied together with torsionally rigid torque tubes. The platform is a box
beam design, which adds to the torsional rigidity of the entire structure.
Advance manufactures its own industrial grade cylinders with steel front bearing
blocks equipped with Teflon coated, sintered, steel backed, lifetime lubricated
bearings; pistons equipped with nylon glass filled wear rings; cylinder rods
made from high strength stress-proof steel that is hard chrome plated; cylinder
housings that are automatically welded with specially designed mechanical lathe
welders and spud welders rather than providing inexpensive agriculture grade
hydraulic cylinders without many of the above features. Also, for safety, all
cylinders are equipped with internal mechanical stops which prevent the cylinder
rod from leaving the cylinder housing, so you don't have to depend on external
stops on the lift to prevent the lift from collapsing when fully raised.
All Advance lifts go through a multi-step paint process ending with an oven
baked-on primer and an oven baked-on hard enamel paint finish to ensure long
equipment life rather than outdated air dry paint methods that take 30 to 60
days to cure. Advance provides the best paint finish in the industry.
