Lifting gates are an excellent tool that will help your employees increase productivity, as well as reduce injuries. Liftgates are a good idea for fleets. Before installing liftgates on your vehicles, there are a few things to consider.
The best type of liftgate to install will depend upon the size and weight of your vehicle. Hydraulic liftgates are incredibly durable and perform well on uneven surfaces. Mechanical liftgates are a good option for lightweight freight. They are often less expensive to purchase, install, and maintain than hydraulic liftgates.
When choosing the right platform size for your liftgate, remember the size of the freight or cargo you’ll be loading. Larger cargo loads obviously require larger and sturdier cargo lifting platforms.
A liftgate is usually available in two forms, either made of steel or aluminum. While steel platforms are relatively inexpensive, they’re prone to rust. Steel is lighter than aluminum, but it is more expensive when opened and closed.
You’ll find that the liftgate is either a truck under liftgate or a rail gate.
