In a word, many. As standard, most Dock Lift manufacturers offer a hand held push button control with an up and down button.
The push button is attached to the power unit by an electrical cord. The control cord can vary in length.Retractable coil cords are very common. They are often 5’ long retracted and stretch up to 20’ long extended, providing the operator with increased mobility.
Controls can be installed on a post on the platform or in a wall-installed control panel. The specific application dictates what is best.
Refer to a reputable Dock Lift manufacturer for their suggestions.
