PDQ – Simple Dock Lifting

Portable, medium capacity PDQ Dock Scissor Lifts feature a low 4 ½" profile. PDQ models offers  capacities from 4,000 pounds to 6,000 pounds,a 60-inch x 84-inch platform, and 55 ½ inches of vertical travel. 

Designed to handle high volume applications, especially in areas where no dock exists, PDQ's onboard hydraulic power unit provides consistent power, while a quick-disconnect, single phase electrical connection simplifies setup.

With solid steel construction, a hinged approach ramp on one side, and a throw-over bridge on the other, the PDQ is well suited for pass-through dock applications of pallet jacks and hand dollies and is commonly found in the automotive, retail, and grocery industries. Three open platform sides are available, making the PDQ a flexible choice for common loading and unloading tasks.

The standard dolly handle and flip-down wheel design makes it easy move the PDQ in a dock or parking lot area. Options such as alternate load transfer routs and bumpers can make the PDQ a custom, yet simple, solution to your everyday dock lifting needs. 

PDQ Dock Lifts have been manufactured in America since 1982 and are designed to the highest standards of safety and reliability.  This includes PDQ-40 PDQ-50 PDQ-60 products.

Features and Benefits

Durability and Quality

  • Joints, the most critical wear points in the lift,  100,000-psi, feature chrome-plated, ultimate-strength pins for premium load strength and long life.
  • Solid steel legs and added stiffeners provide overall stability and straight, repeatable roller tracking as the lift raises and lowers.
  • Thick steel reinforced platform minimizes deck deflection, maximizes load stability, and extends life of the platform deck.

Maintenance and Warranty

  • On-board maintenance devices enable maintenance crews to safely and effectively block open the scissors during inspection and routine maintenance.
  • Maintenance-free bearings at pivot points require no lubrication.
  • Efficient hydraulic power unit simplifies servicing.
  • Double wire braided Parker hydraulic hoses resist wear, abrasion, and leaks.
  • Easy replacement of high strength steel rollers minimizes downtime.
  • Autoquip offers a 1-year warranty on all parts as a promise that you've purchased the industry's most reliable lift.


  • Simple Up/Down pushbutton operation.
  • Throw-over bridge conveniently covers transition gaps.
  • Hinged approach ramp simplifies loading/offloading.
  • Single-phase quick disconnect streamlines electrical connection.


  • Removable and permanent handrails allow for safe maneuvering of workers.
  • Hydraulic velocity fuses completely stop lifts in the unlikely event of uncontrolled descent due to sudden hose rupture.
  • Minimum 3:1 structural factor of safety makes these lifts the most structurally sound lift in the industry.
