Liftgate provides undermount platform
Jan 1, 2009 12:00 PM
MBB Interlift has launched the ILUK Under Slider liftgate that features an undermount platform for both truck and trailer applications. The level-ride 74" × 96" and 82" × 96" platforms are the largest platforms available that can store underneath the truck, according to the company. ILUK comes in capacity loads of 3,300, 4,400, 5,500, and 6600 pounds, and a fully aluminum version is offered in capacities between 3,300 and 5,500 lbs.
The undermount design reduces the chance of dock damage to the liftgate and also keeps the liftgate conveniently out of the way when not in use. ILUK is lighter than a rail-style liftgate, yet it features the same capacities. Lightweight design allows for improved weight distribution, an increased payload, and reduced fuel consumption.
ILUK includes a pre-mounted, thermo-protected, slide-in power pack that is fully protected in the mount tube and is easy to inspect. Bed height range is 36"-60", which allows it to work with a range of applications. The design of ILUK allows it to work together with walk ramps without requiring the liftgate to be lowered, and also with roll-up and swing doors. The 4,400- to 6,600 lb.-capacity models come standard with foot controls and cart stops; these features are optional on the 3,300-lb.-capacity model. ILUK is also available with a wireless remote control and other options.
