How to Identify the Dock Leveler Parts You Need - DDM Garage Doors Blog

Posted September 7th, 2018 at 5:06 pm by Dan Musick

Since there have been about 20 dock leveler manufacturers over the decades, and since most have unique parts, it is best to begin by identifying the manufacturer of the leveler.

Usually, there is a label to identify the manufacturer and possibly the model.

Sometimes the label is on the front of the frame, as we see here with this Serco Leveler.

Sometimes the label is along the side of the leveler, as we see on this McGuire leveler.

Under some levelers, you can find a tube welded underneath the deck with a manual rolled up in it. There might also be parts with the manufacturer’s name under the deck.

If you can’t identify the leveler, you can take pictures of the parts you need. Then, please email them to us from our contact page.

Another option in identifying the dock leveler parts is to browse the images on the different pages linked to our Dock Leveler Parts index page.

PLEASE NOTE: COVID has interrupted global supply distribution chains resulting in unprecedented delays on incoming door industry products. The result is limited availability of many products, three month delays on incoming shipments, and an inflationary rate of over 50% just this year on many of our products.
