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 50% 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 and surface anchored so there's no need for pits, bollards, or building permits.

  • Environmentally Responsible and energy efficient. 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.
