Operational Delays: Any disruption in the functioning of dock levelers can result in delays in shipping and receiving, affecting overall productivity.
Costly Repairs: Neglecting minor issues can escalate into more significant problems, leading to expensive repairs or the need for premature replacements.

Several factors can contribute to the malfunctioning of dock levelers, including:
Hydraulic Fluid Leaks: Fluid leaks can hinder the smooth operation of the leveler, leading to instability and potential safety risks.
