Transfer Loads From Any Height Truck Bed to Any Height Dock
You can save the high cost of dock construction, work from any truck bed level to grade level and handle unstable loads quickly and safely with Dock Lifts. These lifts can be installed indoors or outdoors and will handle all loads up to 20,000 lbs.

VisionMasters Dock Lifts are more versatile than dock levelers, faster and easier than manual loading and unloading, safer than ramps and inclines and less expensive than recessed truck wells.

The Advantages of a VisionMasters Dock Lift
Dock lifts are more versatile than dock levelers, faster than manual loading and unloading, safer than ramps and inclines and less expensive than recessed truck wells. That’s why every building should have a VisionMasters Dock Lift.

A Model for Every Application
VisionMasters offers seven standard dock lift models with capacities from 5,000 to 20,000 lbs., platform sizes up to 8' x 12' and a variety of installation configurations to accommodate any loading dock requirement. Models featuring an “M” designation are built for use with two wheel dollies, hand carts, and hand pallet trucks. “H” model designations can be used with powered devices like powered pallet trucks, counterbalanced stackers and fork lift trucks.

The Fast, Safe, Easy Way to Service Any Truck
With nearly 5' of travel range, dock lifts can service any type of truck from vans and pickups to tractor trailers and container trucks. Loads on dock lifts are always kept level making transport safer and easier than traveling up or down inclines created by dock levelers or ramps.

Rugged Weatherproof Construction
All VisionMasters Dock Lifts are manufactured with structurally reinforced heavy steel plate platforms to minimize deflection. Wide base design provides increased rigidity to create the industry’s most stable dock lift. Model VMSOW-DL5-59 and VMSOW-DL6-59 dock lifts feature corrosion resistant galvanized base and legs as standard, resulting in longer trouble-free service even in hostile environments.
