TL-515 & TL-520 Top Of Ground
Truck Levelers

These truck levelers have the cylinders straddling the platform. The units sit on top of the ground or in very shallow pits so they do not offer any down travel. In order to achieve the equivalent of down travel, some applications create a down slope from the hinge point of the leveler to the dock face, so that a truck bed lowers as it approaches the dock face when the truck leveler is fully lowered. These units are also mounted on perfectly level driveways.

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS:

1. A crane that can reach the center of the platform with a capacity of 3,000 lbs. for a TL-415 or 3,500 lbs. for a TL-420 will be required.
2. Typically it takes two men and two days to complete an installation.
3. All welding is in the flat position.

OPTIONAL ONE (1) PIECE CONSTRUCTION:

These units can be shipped as one-piece platforms, (TL-515-1P & TL-520-1P) which saves several hours in assembly time and offers
a lower unit cost. However, freight costs and permits can add as much as $2,500 to shipping costs. Also, positioning a one-piece
platform requires a heavier capacity crane than the two-piece standard unit requires. Be sure to check installation quotes and freight
costs before deciding on the one-piece option.

NOTE:

1. Steel faced dock bumpers are preferred because of the vertical movement of trucks against the bumpers.
2. “Edge of dock” devices are often used to span the gap between the dock and truck bed.
3. A 24″ X 24″ opening is available to accommodate truck restraints. Consult the factory if your requirements exceed those dimensions.
