LOMASTER™ DOCK LIFT SERIES

Turn any ground level area into a functional loading dock.

The LoMaster™ Series Dock Lift from Blue Giant provides a safe and efficient way to handle endless material handling applications at grocery stores, schools, hospitals, and distribution centres – anywhere a low-profile workhorse is required. Typically, a dock lift will cost 1/3 the price of a fork truck and will have a quicker ROI compared to the long-term cost associated with operating a forklift and manually loading/off-loading a trailer.

A LoMaster™ Series Dock Lift will also greatly reduce handling costs, cargo damage, and employee injury common to vertical transfer operations.
Blue Giant LoMaster™ Series Dock Lifts are available in many sizes with standard capacities up to 20,000lb (9,091 kg). Before choosing the unit that is right for your application, compare our standard design features.

Low-Profile Dock Lift


If you find forming a concrete pit/pad too costly, an economical solution is a LoMaster™ Low-Profile Dock Lift. The unit is installed at the dock face and mounted on locating cradles and wear plates. With its extremely low profile, the unit provides added versatility for ground level loading/unloading operations. The high quality construction features found in the stationary models are incorporated into all of our low-profile dock lifts. Easy lift cylinder is encased in a weather-resistant, platform freefall. Hard chromed pivot points are fitted with lifetime lubricated bearings or Teflon-coated steel bushings. Indicator bars and high visibility striping provide four sided toe protection. Sturdy steel handrails with 4″ (102 mm) kick plates and barrier chains at both ends provide added operator safety. An 18″ (457 mm) long lip with lifting chain on the rolling end is standard.
