Mantis Series dock levelers handle loads from 25,000 to 40,000 lb and use hydraulic or mechanical actuators. Mechanical dock levelers feature a simple walk-down operation that requires only 3 lb of pull on a release chain and less than 90 lb on the deck to walk it down into place. Hydraulic dock levelers use a single pushbutton activation for both the deck and lip that can locate on one remote, wall-mounted control station.

Features include a yieldable lip designed to absorb shocks from backing in trailers; full-operating-range toe guards; flush-mount, full-width rear hinge; a V-grooved maintenance stand to support both the deck and lip; and fall-safe devices to prevent the platform from free-falling should a truck depart prematurely while the dock is loaded. Mantis docks come in widths of 6, 6.5, and 7 ft and lengths of 6, 8, and 10 ft. Working range is 12 in. above and below dock level. Lip extensions of 16 (standard), 18, and 20 in. are available. Optional items include a pour-in pan for new construction, underdeck support for three-wheel lift truck applications, and side and rear weather seals.
