Customize Your Lifts

Specifically sized, configured, mobile, high-cycle or automated – when you need a lift to perform a specific function, we have the materials, components, and design techniques to produce a one of a kind lifting solution for your application.

PLT Dock Lift, formerly known to our customers as PLTC has changed model names to accommodate broader options within our standard specifications.  We have more capacity ranges and platform sizes available to tackle most dock lifting needs.  The PLT Dock Lift is primarily for pit mounting and extends grade level for fork truck loading and unloading.


    A wide variety of control options, from wireless to simple wired limit switches.

    Whether your needs dictate simple relay controls or fully integrated PLC controlled automation systems on an isolated network, our inhouse sales and engineering staff have the experience and knowledge to design the system that solves your material handling problems in a cost-effective manner.

    Autoquip has expertise with the following control options and can work with you to integrate and combine with other control systems as well.

    • -Pushbuttons or Footswitches
    • -Relays (Mechanical or Programmable)
    • -Limit Switches (Mechanical or Proximity)
    • -Programmable Logic Controllers
    • -Human-Machine Interface
    • -Variable Frequency Drive
    • -Joystick Controls
    • -Photo Eyes
    • -Encoders (Rotary or Linear)
    • -Remote Access Connectivity
    • -Wireless HMI
  • Durability and Quality

    • Joints, the most critical wear points in the lift, feature chrome-plated, 100,000-psi, ultimate-strength pins for premium load strength and long life.
    • Solid steel legs and added stiffeners provide overall stability and straight, repeatable roller tracking as the lift raises and lowers.
    • Thick steel reinforced platform minimizes deck deflection, maximizes load stability, and extends life of the platform deck.

    Maintenance and Warranty

    • On-board maintenance devices enable maintenance crews to safely and effectively block open the scissors during inspection and routine maintenance.
    • Maintenance-free bearings at pivot points require no lubrication.
    • Efficient and highly serviceable hydraulic power unit.
    • Double wire braided Parker hydraulic hoses resist wear, abrasion, and leaks.
    • Easy replacement of high-strength steel rollers minimizes downtime.
    • Autoquip offers a 2-year warranty on all parts as a promise that you’ve purchased the industry’s most reliable lift.


    • Simple Up/Down pushbutton operation.
    • Throw-over bridge conveniently covers transition gaps.


    • Removable handrails allow for safe maneuvering of workers.
    • Beveled platform sides protect workers’ feet and toes.
    • Hydraulic velocity fuses completely stop lifts in the unlikely event of uncontrolled descent due to sudden hose rupture.
    • Minimum 3:1 structural factor of safety makes these lifts the most structurally sound in the industry.
    • Compliance with recognized standards:
      • ANSI MH29.1 – Safety Requirements for Industrial Scissor Lifts
      • NFPA 70 – National Electric Code
      • ASTM – A36 – Structural Steel Standard
      • ANSI Z535 – Safety Labeling Requirements
      • AWS D.1 – Welding Standards
      • Applicable portions of OSHA 29CFR1910 – General Workplace Safety
