CDS Series Mechanically-Operated, Pit Mounted Dock Leveler


photo of pit mounted leveler

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




The "CDS" SERIES / Mechanical is a pit-mounted dock leveler with a working range of 12" above to 12" below dock. The unit is mechanically operated via a spring counterbalance and DLM's CAMCONTROL™ design. For greater safety, DLM's exclusive LIPDRIVE™ feature (patents pending) provides positive extension of the hinged lip during deck lift.


The design of the "CDS" SERIES dock levelers allows adjustments to be made via two nuts - one for counterbalance of the deck and one for the lip. Each is front-mounted for easy access. When the "CDS" SERIES dock leveler is properly installed and operated, periodic lubrication should be the only maintenance requirement. Grease fittings are provided along the hinge and lift arm assemblies.


1. Tapered lip edge for smooth tire rollover.
2. Exclusive LIPDRIVE feature provides positive lip extension during deck lifts.
3. Heavy-duty spring counterbalance.
4. DLM CAMCONTROL for the best balance and the smoothest lifts.
5. Cold-rolled steel hinge pin for added strength and long life. Grease fittings throughout.
6. Safety stops prevent deck from dropping too low for safe operation.
7. Working range toe guards at each side.
8. Two security nightlocks.
