On the level: Maxon GPTLR facilitates loading

Maxon Lift Corp has redesigned its GPT model liftgate. “It's perfect for carts and pallets as it rides level all the way to the ground, just like a rail liftgate” says Brent Stratton, vice-president of sales and marketing. The new GPTLR (patents pending) was designed with a platform that allows for loads to be easily rolled on and off because it sits completely flat on the ground.

The GPTLR has the largest platform ever made for a Tuk-A-Way (up to 70" deep), featuring a higher capacity and a platform up to 86" wide on a 102"-wide truck body. This unit comes fully assembled with everything pre-wired and plumbed, and it installs as one piece.

Other features of the GPTLR include a sealed pump box that is curbside-mounted, hydraulic cylinders protected within the arm structure, a platform with an improved recessed hinge, and an underride that is FMVSS-compliant. The GPTLR also has additional patent-pending features on the new roller design that presents the platform at a vertical position when unfolding. Combined with a standard torsion bar, there is no point during the liftgate operation that the driver has to strain to fold or unfold the platform.
