Why Is There a Choice to Have Self-Contained or Remote Power Units for Dock Levelers?

Self-contained power units cost less and are the most common, however, there are alternatives. Remote power units are one of the alternatives and are best suited for wash down applications. When periodic maintenance is required, it is easier to access a remote power unit. At the time of installation, remote power units are typically installed 7’ – 8’above finished floor level on a wall mounting bracket. This moves the power unit up and away from potential impact. The hydraulic hoses are then run from the remote power unit to the dock leveler cylinder. Often the application determines the decision to go to a self-contained power unit or a remote power unit.
