EZL Flipaway designed for low bed heights
Feb 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Waltco Truck Equipment Co has introduced the EZL Flipaway series of liftgates for low-bed-height commercial trucks. The EZL Flipaway is a large-platform, low-bed-height-compatible liftgate that's easy to install, operate, and maintain.
Designed to accommodate Class 3-5 trucks with low bed heights, EZL folds under the truck bed for storage, yet unfolds and operates easily. It comes in two models, offering either a 2,500- capacity or a 3,000-lb capacity — with a 48" × 80" platform for trucks with bed heights of 38" to 44".
EZL folds and unfolds with only 25 pounds of force, compared with 75 pounds or more required by some competitive models. Then only a single-switch operation puts the liftgate into place; flush platform hinges make it easy to move wide cargo across the platform.
The single mounting dimension covers the entire bed range. Factory-preassembled components minimize installation time, and plug-in controls make wiring quick and foolproof. Plus, the parting bar that pivots with the liftgate arms to maximize ground clearance is installed at the factory.
Reduced-maintenance bearings at key pivot points do not require routine greasing, and EZL's compliance with all Technology and Maintenance Council recommendations for wiring ensure troublefree operation. In addition, the powder-coat finish is more corrosion- and abrasion-resistant than conventional wet-spray finishes.
