Our Lifts Are The Ultimate Loading Dock Solution

Superior Handling Equipment has manufactured the American-made Speed-Lift(tm) for over 40 years. It’s the only dock lift that utilizes a robust cantilever-motion design and Automatic Folding Ramps to safely and quickly load/unload trucks. The company’s focused effort on this lift’s development has culminated in a product line that incorporates maximum safety, productivity, and flexibility with its standard features and customizable options, all of which reinforce its durability, reliability, and operational efficiency.

The original Speed-Lift (SL) is available with 10 standard platform sizes and 8 lifting capacities ranging from 5,000 lbs all the way up to 25,000 lbs. All lifts are custom-built according to each location's specific needs and layout with various options including side off-loading configurations, extra wide platform sizes, and other customizations that are available to accommodate every unique need.

Our NEW Mobile Dock Lift (MDL) is available in a 6,000 lb lifting capacity and a 54" x 96" platform size.  It is fully mobile and NATM certified. It can be towed and used anywhere----around a construction site, in a field for agricultural use, in disaster areas, and more! We shipped a Mobile Dock Lift to Puerto Rico to assist with unloading food, water, and supplies after Hurricane Maria hit and it has made a huge impact! Click here to view a testimonial video from Chief Prado.

Key Benefits:

  • *Increased Safety* with patented Automatic Folding Ramps and permanently attached railings creating an all-around barrier for the operator while the cantilever lifting design greatly eliminates risk of injury to fingers and toes. 

  • *Higher Productivity* by raising to a truck height of 50 inches in an average time of 10 seconds - which is 2-3X Faster than the competition. Our lifts also have a full-load rating capacity across the entire platform. 

  • *Rugged Dependability* for long term solutions. With regular maintenance, Speed-Lifts have exceeded 25 years of use

  • *Unmatched Flexibility* compared to any other dock lift because we offer various configurations, platform sizes, and customizations for indoor, outdoor, fixed position, or mobile use.

  • *Easy Installation* because they are fully self-contained with a simple electrical hook-up and surface anchored so there's no need for pits, bollards, or building permits.

  • *Environmental Responsibility* and energy efficiency. Our lifts only require electricity when raising the platform and return to the ground with gravitational force - resulting in significant energy savings.  Furthermore, since they don't require pits, this eliminates undetected oil leaks, ground water contamination, and collection areas for other liquid and debris.
