EDGE OF DOCK LEVELER
Copperloy’s low-cost solution to get a working dock with a 5″ or less gap.
An edge of dock leveler (EOD) is used to bridge the gap from the edge of a loading area to a truck or ramp. As opposed to a dockboard, EODs are fixed to the loading dock. Copperloy edge of dock levelers are ideal for use when trucks are backing up to a dock. With a simple pull of the handle, the leveler will lift over the top truck height for easy positioning. They mount easily to most docks and are available in 66″, 72″, 78″ and 84″ widths. Our shipping dock leveler is capable of servicing trucks 5″ above or below dock levels and is available in both 20,000 and 30,000 lb. models.
- To ensure product durability, the EOD has been designed and engineered using a three-dimensional engineering software package.
- Quick, easy lifting and positioning: Our exclusive lift mechanism and spring assembly sets the board in place with one-quarter the effort needed to operate conventional edge of dock levelers.
- Push button operation on hydraulic models.
- Ideal for retrofit: The Copperloy Edge of Dock leveler easily mounts to the face of almost any dock. Transition plates and approach ramps are also available.
- Safety: Every Copperloy Edge of Dock Leveler is equipped with a safety maintenance strut to secure the unit while performing routine maintenance.
- Low maintenance: Maintenance is reduced to simple lubrication of hinges which come equipped with grease fittings.

Create a dock anywhere with Copperloy’s mobile yard ramp.
Copperloy® yard ramps are engineered to maximize space, productivity, and safety making it America’s ultimate yard ramp. Made in the USA, our revamped, one-cylinder yard ramp design uses less pressure to lift the ramp compared to traditional yard ramps with two-cylinder hydraulic systems.
- Easier operation, the pump location on the outside of the yard ramp frame allows for more convenient access.
- Faster raise times, position the ramp up to two and a half times faster than the average ramp.
- Less wear and tear, rotation occurs on the redesigned positioning sleeve instead of the ramp connection, reducing wear on the ramp structure.
- Greater stability, centrally located cylinder means less chance of tipping.
- Solid-filled pneumatic tires, better handle rugged terrain and also reduce the chances of punctures or air pressure problems.

YARD RAMP FAQ’S
What is the difference between a positioning sleeve and towbar?
The positioning sleeve comes standard on our steel mobile ramps. It is used to get the ramp into position of the trailer. The towbar is used for towing the ramp around your facility short distances (3-5mph max speed). The ramp is not designed for road travel.
What kind of tires are on the mobile yard ramp?
The standard tires are 18″ solid/pneumatic tires. The tires do not require air to fill, are maintenance free, and have lubricated-for-life bearings.
What are the height ranges of the ramps?
The standard height range of the mobile yard ramp is 38″-65″. The standard height range for the dock to ground ramp is 38″-60″. We can customize any ramp to unique height requirements.
How are the ramps secured?
All of our ramps ship with safety chains to secure them. Mobile yards ramps are chained to the trailers. Dock to ground ramps are bolted to the face of the dock with brackets and chains provided.
Are rental yard ramps available?
Yes. Copperloy has a variety of factory-certified ramps for rent and available for short-term loading dock solutions. Factory certified ramps ensure that all components are in working order and are safe for operation. Improve efficiency and production with a factory-certified dock ramp rental.
