With an Edge Of Dock Leveler 20EP72 you’ll gain the benefits of a pit leveler without the extensive labor and upfront costs associated with installation and upkeep. Simply mounted directly to the face of your dock, an edge of dock leveler (EOD) provides dependable access to trailers ±5” above and below the loading dock. The standard manual model actuates via a self storing handle that relies on a high torsion spring and Latch assembly, allowing the lip to raise up and glide onto the bed of the trailer with less than 45lbs of force. When done loading you can either let the leveler fall back to the resting position as the truck leaves or cycle it back with the handle.

- Self storing
- Refrigerated lip optional
- Bumpers and bumper blocks included.

Bluff's edge of dock leveler is designed to have a working range of 5" above and 5" below dock level when used with gas forklifts or 3" above and below dock level for all other equipment types.
For loading docks to low for this working range we offer low dock ramps designed to be mounted to the floor of your dock opening. This allows the leveler to be mounted at a height suitable to your needs.
Installation of an edge of dock leveler requires an approach plate or embedded C channel.
