Liftgate Descriptions

Cantilever

These gates are usually a flat plated gate that can sometimes cover the doorway of a delivery box truck and act as a gate for a stakebed truck. The gate is attached to the end of the bed of a flatbed, stakebed or box truck/delivery truck that is upright and levels down to the bed of the truck and level to the ground to carry cargo into the bed of the truck. These can be made out of aluminum and steel and can hold over 3,000lbs. Platform sizes can range between 80-90 inches in depth.

Rail

These gates can roll up and down the sides of the doorway of a box truck and can sometimes be found on a stakebed or flatbed truck. The rail allows for a higher weight capacity because of its placement on the truck bed walls. These can be made out of aluminum and steel and can hold over 5,000lbs. Platform sizes can range between 80-90 inches in depth.

Tuck Under

The tuck under is mounted under the bed of the truck and is folded up and stored away. When ready to use one can with a flip of a switch fold out the platform and level to the ground and completely fold out to a larger platform size that can be around 72 inches in depth. These can be made out of aluminum and steel and hold up to 3,300lbs.
