Maxon Lift Corp has redesigned the TKL-25 Series Liftgate in response to customers who required more platform area to handle more consolidated loads on small trucks with low beds.

The TKL/TKS-25 is offered in a bed height range of 38" to 54" and the new platform size of 48" × 78.5". This liftgate was designed based on the heavy-duty TKL lowbed Tuk-A-Way model. The company enhanced the liftgate by adding a wedge flip section that creates more loadable space, a torsion-assisted flip-over that reduces force required to fold the larger platform area, and a revised extension plate for more clearance.

The TKL/TKS-25 also has a potted switch that is corrosion-resistant, a four-stage 500-hour salt spray-tested paint process, and low-maintenance pins and bearings that eliminate periodic greasing requirements. For full details, contact Maxon, 11921 Slauson Ave, Santa Fe Springs CA 90670-2221.
