New surface mount dock lifts from Southworth Products, Portland, Maine, provide users all the convenience and versatility of a permanent scissor dock lift without Southworth Products dock lifthaving to dig a pit, making them ideal for leased or temporary buildings.

With a lowered height of just 5 inches and fully raised height of 58 inches, the surface mount dock lift can access loads on truck beds of any height and transfer them to a fixed height loading dock or to grade level. A built-in 30-inch ramp creates a 9-degree slope, providing easy pallet jack accessibility. Diamond tread on the deck, bridge plate and access ramp also promote excellent traction.

Designated the SMDDL, lifts features an extra wide base and plate rollers for increased stability throughout the travel range. Models are available in 4,000-, 5,000- and 6,000-pound weight capacities. Heavy tubular legs and cross members minimize deflection and provide level handling of off-center loads. The unit’s hydraulic system uses biodegradable fluid to eliminate potential environmental hazards.

Other features include pushbutton control with keyed lockout, fully adjustable downspeed, velocity fuse protection and lubricated-for-life pins, rollers and bushings.
