NeverLift™ Pit Mounted Dock Leveler


dock levelers
  The safest and easiest to operate mechanical Edge-of-Dock leveler in America.

Nearly 40 years ago , DLM invented the edge-of-dock leveler and quickly set the standard for the industry. Today, the DLM NeverLift sets a new standard. It is the absolute state of the art in lever-operated edge-of-dock levelers. The DLM NeverLift is yet another reason why there are more DLM edge-of-dock levelers in service than those of all other companies combined


  lever operation


Here is the state-of-the-art in lever-operated dock levelers. Simply move the lifting lever 50 degrees away from the dock edge, and then return the lever to its original vertical position. That's all there is to it.



With DLM, you can choose from three bump block models to match your application needs. In the foreground of the photo is our extra heavy-duty series, shipped as standard. At left, is the optional extra heavy duty series with our exclusive sliding bump block that rises as the truck is unloaded thus reducing wear and tear. At upper right is our optional warehouse series for moderate traffic applications. All DLM bump blocks feature Tuf-Cord® bumpers, the toughest in the industry.
