CLIMBING LEVELER (Combination Truck Leveler and Slide Slope) <Patented products> Step Eliminator


Summary and features

Three functions in one unit

When a truck arrives, use the levelerbetween the dock and truck (max. angle 9.5°) to create a stable bridge between the two. Or, if you want to eliminate the height-difference between the loading platform and the ground below, simply lower the leveler all the way down to create a gentle slope. When not in use, simply leave the leveler at 0° to serve as usable space.
This three-in-one Climbing Leveler is recommended for all kinds of loading docks and platforms.

Fast Up & Down Movement

Moves up to connect to trucks in about 30 seconds, or all the way to the ground in about 45 seconds, both fast enough to improve work efficiency.

Rated up to 5 Tons

The Climbing Leveler uses SS41 steel construction for a rated load capacity up to 5 tons and to ensure safe, stable operation.

Create a Stable Slope

The Climbing Leveler creates a sliding slope about 500mm in the up position or 1,000mm in the down position, allowing forklifts to ride over it without instablity.

Examples of application

Examples of application


  • With Normal Slopes

    Surface area 20m2 (6tsubo)
    Concrete slope ¥2 million
    Dock leveler ¥1 million
    Device・facility cost ¥3 million
    Dead space caused by slope 20m2 (6tsubo)
    Disadvantages in terms of work space
    * per tsubo ¥4,000
    × 6 tsubo × 12 months
    = ¥288,000/year
  • With the Climbing Leveler

    Surface area 12m2 (3.6tsubo)
    with slope function
    with truck leveler
    Device・facility cost ¥6 million
    (standard specification)
    Depreciation Slope + Truck leveler
    = ¥3 million
    Disadvantages in terms of work space Annual ¥288,000 × 11 years
    = ¥3.168 million
    Total ¥6.168 milion
    Can be depreciated in 11 years

Advantages of introducing the Climbing Leveler

Advantages of introducing the Climbing Leveler

The Climbing Leveler eliminates the height differences for even large container trucks.
(If the height difference between the platform and truck loading gate is too great, then even using a normal dock leveler is not enough to allow forklift entry.)
