New LiftGate Interior Tail Gate Lift
L P International Inc., the manufacturer of the successful PowerMate® line of motorized hand trucks has developed “swing arm” lift using the same reliable solid state drive screw technology as in the powered hand truck line. The ‘LiftGate’ is designed for installation in trucks and vans and is ideal for moving small loads up to 500 lbs. where the dimensions from the truck bed to the ground is less than 40”. The swing arm can position the load inside the vehicle eliminated the risk of injury associated with moving loads in a confined space.
The LiftGate has been developed for the HVAC-R, home medical, schools, material handling, public works and the power utility market and can be equipped with either a strap bar or cylinder attachment for compressed gas delivery. The LiftGate is a fraction of the weight of a standard rear fold out lift and can be installed for under $500 (24 hour turnaround!) The LiftGates can be installed with right or left hand configuration and at either the back or curbside door – very handy for delivery in urban areas where maneuvering space is at a premium!
Unlike a TailGate lift, the load on a LiftGate is secured, so the risk of the load shifting or falling is eliminated. The LiftGates are made from heavy duty steel and aluminum and requires minimum space inside the vehicle at just 1.5 sq. ft. The LiftGate is clearly a unique entry into the material handling arena due to its lower cost, small footprint and flexible mounting configuration. When purchased and installed with a new vehicle, the unit becomes part of your operating expense making the LifGate and ideal fleet accessory!
