RHA-4000 Air Powered Leveler

Rite-Hite's RHA-4000 Air Powered Dock Leveler offers simple push button operation, an easy clean frame with quicker access for maintenance, and a unique stump-out solution that helps protect against free-fall by allowing for leveler free float during the loading/unloading process.


Lower Cost of Ownership

Unique structural design stands firm under extreme warehouse demands to help decrease repair and maintenance costs, while increasing product lifespan.

  • Self-Contained (located inside the tower) Air Handling System helps protect against damage from inside/outside environment and wash-down applications.

  • Air tower offers a wear resistant, low pressure lifting system that requires little to no scheduled maintenance. During routine maintenance, the leveler pit provides easy access for quicker entry and less downtime.

  • Formed Front Header (connection between deck and leveler lip) completes the four-sided rectangular box construction and includes interlocking and welded stringers to create a stronger bond, increase overall strength and help limit lifetime maintenance downtime issues.
  • Certified to meet and exceed ANSI MH30.1 performance testing standards.

Help cut down facility costs by increasing productivity through effortless push button operation and an easy clean frame, while lowering your facility’s environmental footprint.

  • Push Button Operation helps increase productivity by decreasing ergonomic stress on personnel and increasing the overall ease of use.

  • Mechanical Lip Extension is activated and locked into place upon full inflation of the air tower. The lip remains in the locked state until resting in trailer bed for more accurate placement.

  • Easy Clean Frame helps reduce time spent on clean-up through easier removal of dirt and debris.

  • Simpler Operating System of air powered levelers run solely on electricity; removing the requirement to check and replace oil during routine maintenance.

  • PitMaster™ under-leveler Seal is an available option that helps prevent energy loss, improve dock cleanliness, and increases employee comfort.

  • Maintenance Pendant Receptacle (optional) helps minimize danger and reduce waste while promoting productivity while maintaining air powered dock levelers. The receptacle helps with labor shortages by only requiring one technician instead of two during maintenance.

  • Weatherseals help seal gaps between the dock leveler and concrete pit wall for improved environment control and energy efficiency, with the option to install on new levelers or retrofitted to existing.
Smooth Transition Dok System®

Approximately 20 percent of acute low back pain sufferers develop chronic low back pain within one year, which can be attributed to Whole Body Vibration (Dock Shock). Help reduce personnel injuries by choosing a leveler with a full Smooth Transition Dok System®.

  • Two-Point Crown Control reinforces the front hinge (between the leveler deck and lip) in two places to help remove the "speed bump" felt with traditional leveler that have increased crown reinforcement.

  • Constant Radius Rear Hinge gives a consistent 1/3" space between the warehouse floor and leveler deck; significantly reducing the gap that causes the jarring pain felt when crossing.

  • Extended Lip Chamfer comes standard with an extended length of 3" (compared with traditional leveler's 1/3") that provides a more gradual transition from lip to trailer bed floor; helping to diminish bodily impact.

  • Beam Construction includes two L-extra beams under the leveler deck which provide increased strength and superior flexibility, allowing the leveler to flex up to 4" under its own weight.
Industry Leading Safety

The importance of safety at the loading dock cannot be understated. From the loading / unloading process to planned maintenance, there are many places to prioritize for safety.

  • Stump-Out Solution provides free-fall protection without the need for traditional end load legs, helping to protect material handling equipment, operators, cargo and the dock leveler itself.
  • Safe-T-Strut ™ gives enhanced safety during maintenance with a centrally located, through-the-lip design that keeps the strut in place throughout the entire operating range of the leveler; withstanding an accidental impact of a 10,000 lb fork truck at 4 mph.

Visibility from inside the building indicates to all that maintenance is being performed and helps prevent accidental operation, keeping personnel safe during scheduled maintenance.

  • Self-Flexing Deck utilizes L-beam stringers to increase deck strength and allow the leveler deck to flex up to 4” under its own weight. This structural design means the leveler maintains constant contact with the trailer bed at all time; even after the weight of the forklift has been removed from the deck.
  • Safe-T-Lip® helps provide vacant drop off protection, while its slotted-lip design safely positions the barrier out of the way for unobstructed end-load access.
  • Up to 20-Year Money Back Warranty Based on the Dock Leveler Investment Guide.
  • 5-Year Parts and 1-Year Labor on Leveler.
  • 5-Year Parts and 1-Year Labor on Tower, Blower & Hoses.
  • 12-Month Limited Money-Back Guarantee of Customer Satisfaction.
