The Thieman Tailgates TT-16 with a 1,600-lb capacity is now provided as a TT-20 with a 2,000-lb capacity. The TT-16/20's large platform, offered 80" or 86" wide, and the two lift capacities make awkward material a breeze to load and unload. Designed for use on van bodies, flatbeds, and tire service bodies, the TT-16/20 can be mounted on trucks with a bed height range of 30" to 50". It showcases a completely enclosed lifting mechanism for a clean appearance and protection from the elements. Reduced-maintenance features decrease costs of liftgate ownership.

The TT-16/20 comes standard with dual cylinders for maximum lifting capacity and stability; torsion assist is also included. Options on the TT-16/20 include various platform materials (expanded metal, aluminum extrusion, and two-piece folding), light kit, in-cab shutoff switch, power lowering, and remote pendant controls.
