Aluminum Wheelrisers

Wheel Riser - Aluminum (AWR)

Wheel risers make it possible to correct a steep grade or receive trucks with deck heights too low for level loading. The AWR model, constructed of high grade aluminum diamond deck material offers a light weight, hand portable, alternative to heavier steel wheel risers; making it ideal for lighter duty docks without forklifts.

Designed for use with LTL, smaller box trucks, or delivery vehicles Aluminum Wheel Risers suit single, dual, or tandem axle trailers. All our wheel risers are available in 18" widths for single and 24" widths for dual tires. Height of wheel risers vary from 4", 6", 8", 10", & even 12" in the extreme cases. Every dock is unique, so even if your rear axle is resting at the base of an incline we have a solution to suit your individual need.

  • 18" width for single tire on riser.
  • 24" width for dual tires on riser.
  • 30" top length for single axle.
  • 84" top length for tandem axle.
