The LoadWarrior Level-Lift by Serco is designed for warehouses with limited loading dock space, offering them the efficiency of a hydraulic dock leveler and the flexibility of a scissors lift. With a vertical range of up to 60 inches, the Level-Lift has the ability to load and unload nearly any type of vehicle that pulls into the loading dock. Design features include Serco’s patented hydraulic technology, which consists of independent powered lip control, regenerative hydraulics, and push-button controls. For additional energy savings, the dock leveler can be equipped with ENERGY GUARD perimeter seal.

Safety features of the Level-Lift include an audible alarm with flashing yellow strobe light that activates when the lift is not fully stored. Safety velocity fuses on the leveler and lift prevent an uncontrolled descent, and the Automatic Return to Dock function helps prevent injuries in the loading dock area.

With a lifting capacity of up to 20,000 lbs., the Level-Lift enables dock-to-grade forklift access, and can be interlocked with dock doors, vehicle restraints and other equipment using a Master Control Panel to ensure a safe and reliable operation sequence. The Level-Lift also includes Quick-Connect style electrical cables with NEMA 4x hand control for a fast, easy, and inexpensive installation.

The combination of Serco’s popular hydraulic dock leveler and versatile scissors lift provide facilities with the ability to service virtually any type of vehicle, including below-dock trailers and unconventional trailer configurations.  As an alternative for expensive concrete ramps or dock lifts, the Serco LoadWarrior Level-Lift provides flexibility for small or restricted loading dock spaces, enabling years of efficient and dependable productivity.
