Maxon Lift Corp has redesigned its pump box to be more weather-resistant and simpler to install.
The new pump is a vertical panel-mounted assembly with a watertight, four-sided box cover. Both gravity-down and power-down models will be vertical and enclosed within a plastic housing. The pump cover is lined with a rubber seal that provides protection from the elements. All hose entries to the box have grommets to help prevent moisture or corrosion within the unit. The cylinder and hoses now have Face Seal fittings that use O-rings at all contact points, reducing the chance of system leaks. This pump is delivered pre-installed on the liftgate and will require only a hook-up to hydraulic hoses and electrical wiring.
The 72-25/30 Tuk-A-Way series will be the first to undergo the pump changeover. Maxon's entire series of Tuk-A-Ways is slated to be changed to this new style of pump.
