Waltco Truck Equipment Co now offers cantilever-style liftgates that accommodate a stationary receiver-type trailer hitch. Features of the BZ-100 and BZ-150 Series Level Lifts include:

  • Large cantilever platform keeps cargo stable on all types of terrain and allows the operator to load and unload cargo from either the rear or the side.

  • Auto-tilt feature with memory tilts the platform down at ground level for loading/unloading and returns it to a preset horizontal position.

  • Hydraulically powered open/close feature eliminates the need for manual folding.

  • Adjustable tilt cylinders prevent overtilting of the platform.

  • Electronic cylinder locks prevent the platform and cargo from lowering in case of hydraulic line failure.

  • Thermally protected power unit shuts down the power to the liftgate before heat buildup.

  • Dual-lift/dual-tilt cylinder design boosts platform control, load stability, speed, and reliability.

  • Dual cart stops keep rolling carts secure on the platform while the platform is being lowered, raised, or leveled.

  • Stationary push-button control box lets the driver operate in full view of the rear of the vehicle, platform, and cargo.

  • Hand-held remote control lets the driver operate the liftgate from the ground, platform, or bed level.

  • Weather-resistant power unit enclosure protects power unit.

  • Platform marker lights increase visibility and safety.

  • Power shut-off switch prevents unauthorized liftgate use.

  • Steel bumper pivots out of the way as platform is lowered.
