Maxon liftgates leverage low bed heights

by Today's Trucking

Maxon Lift’s Tuk-a-Way MXT-25 and MXT-33 liftgate models combine a low bed height with a level-ramping ride feature.

Stability and performance come via a twin cylinder, mid-arm design. Both models come with bed height ranges of 38 to 46 inches, and respective lifting capacities of 2,500 and 3,300 lb. And a new MXT knuckling mechanism is designed to work in a “gravity mode” to conserve power.

Each model features a 48×80-inch wedge-type steel, steel/aluminum and all-aluminum platform with optional dual cart stops. Standard features include a bolt-on extension plate and steps, hydraulic locking, grease fittings at all critical rotation points and all steel components come hot-dip galvanized.

Optional features include: hand-held control, dual controls, cab cut-off switch, Max Electrical Control Unit, power down, dual cart stops, multiple step options, license plate mount kit, and 24-volt configurations.
