Oxendale’s market, a locally owned grocery store in the Minneapolis area, had an old failing dock lift that needed to be replaced. The customer had been doing everything possible to keep the existing lift operational until the maintenance cost became rather costly. Replacing with new equipment would prove to be more cost effective and safer for their operations.
The Autoquip Solution
This project was brought to us by one of our dealers Specialists Equipment Company; they worked with the customer to determine their needs and expectations for a new dock lift. Their main requirement was to have the new dock lift fit the same footprint within the existing pit as the previous lift.
Autoquip’s PLTC Dock Lifts are fully versatile with a wide range of model configurations that it made it easy to select a standard model to fit the customer’s applications. All we had to do is configure the lowered height on the standard model to a taller design so that it would fit the customer’s specific pit dimensions.
