What Type of Liftgate Does Your Truck Need?

What Type of Liftgate Does Your Truck Need?

Trucks rely on liftgates to load and unload heavy products. And depending on the truck, products, and weight, a different type of liftgate may be the best choice. Types of liftgates vary based on where they are placed on the truck, how they load and unload, and how much weight they can handle. Based on your preference and type of application, you can select the liftgate that is best for your business or personal project:

Conventional

  • Original style of liftgates
  • Rest in the upright position
  • Stored flush against the door of the truck body
  • Often serves as rear door

Railgate

  • Provides a level ride throughout the lift for maximum load stability
  • Ideal for bulk delivery and wheeled cargo
  • Appropriate for dock and street delivery

Tuckaway

  • Welded to the frame of the truck’s chassis
  • Platform is designed with two or three folding sections
  • Folded and stored beneath the body’s floor
  • Allows access to the cargo area without activating the lift

Pickup

  • Lifts light to medium loads
  • Easy-to-use, safe, and cost effective
  • Ideal for pickup trucks, stakebeds, and van bodies

Side Loader

  • Mounted below the side door of a truck body
  • Can be either frame or body-mounted
  • Platform can be stored under the body and is either unfolded or extended out from under the door.
