Maxon Lift Gates

Light Duty


Light duty liftgates are designed to provide easy, safe, and cost-effective lifting of light to moderate loads. Maxon’s product line features light duty options for pickup trucks, service bodies, stakebed, van bodies and cargo vans.

Leading Light-Duty Features

Maxon’s Light Duty Series liftgates are built with high performance and low maintenance in mind.

Our Me2’s feature an oversized, fully enclosed pump and motor assembly that helps ensure increased life and less downtime, while maintenance-free, grease-free bearings reduce the need for service.

Our GPC’s feature the lightest liftgates in this class with the fewest amounts of parts due to the patented X1 Technology. With a simple bolt-on installation and availability as a solid or split platform, these cargo van options were designed for high performance.

Maxon was the first to bring the rail style liftgate to the United States during the 1970s. The Railift Series is a classic that never goes out of style because its heavy-duty level ride and dock loading capability are designed to handle some of the most demanding distribution requirements.

Extreme Dependability

The Railift Series is ideal for bulk delivery and wheeled cargo with a combination of dock and street delivery. Railifts provide a level ride through-out the lift for maximum load stability.

The ultimate goal of the groundbreaking new DMD design is to offer a high performing medium-dudty Raillift® combined with low maintenance needs. The DMD features two direct acting cylinders versus competing concepts with one horizontal cylinder and cables and/or pulleys. Consequently, the DMD has fewer moving parts resulting in less ongoing maintenance.

Maxon took the RC model a step further by offering the RCT, which expanded the capabilities to include a platform that stores below bed level and in dock- ready position.

Conventional liftgates are the original style of liftgate. These liftgates are stored flush against the door of trucks or trailers, and they often serve as the actual door or tailgate to these vehicles. Designed for general freight loading, conventional liftgates can be used with trucks and trailers.
Conventional Reliability

Maxon’s conventional liftgate offerings provide exceptional reliability and offer a wide range of platform sizes for many different uses.

Maxon’s GPC is the first North American designed and manufactured cantilever liftgate. For applications that require the extreme flexibility, or large platform of a cantilever lift, the GPC offers superior performance, coupled with Maxon’s capable service. Now, choosing a cantilever-style gate doesn’t mean long waits for parts, or wondering who will support the gate in the future.

We invented the Tuk-A-Way liftgate so that the platform can fold and stow under the truck body in the dock ready position. Today, Maxon offers a wide range of steel and aluminum platforms of different sizes along with various bed height options.

Extreme Practicality

The key to success for the Tuk-A-Way product line is that the platform is neatly out of the way when not needed and/or in the case of dock loading.

The Tuk-A-Way product line has evolved from a simple design to one that includes everything from the MTB bolt-on application to the level ride GPTLR with a large aluminum platform. The product line includes economical, low bed height applications such as
the 72-150 with hitch or ramp-ready versions.

All of our Tuk-A-Ways are low maintenance. The heavy-duty extension plates are made from 1/4” thick diamond plate and have sturdy tubing and channel to help prevent loading damage. The models also feature a weather sealed pump box that protects against the elements.

Maxon’s Slidelifts stow horizontally underneath the truck or trailer. Slidelifts don’t need extension plates and therefore can accommodate roll-up as well as swing doors. Maxon offers Slidelift products with level ride (GPSLR) as well as level-ramping ride (GPS).

Smart Options
All of Maxon’s Slidelift gates include rugged design and smart features like an optional hand held remote control, dual cart stops, and auto leveling.

With the introduction of the GPSLR series and optional SmartStow® technology, Maxon has made Slidelifts even easier to use. Press one button and SmartStow makes everything else automatic: detecting the correct height, stowing securely, and locking in place. Combined with a hydraulic locking system which locks the gate securely during transit, the GPSLR is the most full-featured, intelligent Slidelift on the market.

Maxon’s BMR Columnlift is the culmination of all the best technology, features, and options of any liftgate on the market, offering superior performance—by any measure.

The Highest Performance Lift

Maxon’s Columnlift is unlike any other column lift on the market. Built tough with rugged columns to withstand gate impacts, precision-engineered with self-centering rollers (optional slide pads available too) to eliminate the possibility of jams, and designed with lock valves for operator safety, the BMR offers superior performance to any other column lift—faster operation, lower power consumption, and reduced maintenance costs are only the start.

Every detail has been carefully thought through. LED taillights last longer, burn brighter, and don’t radiate heat, which can damage dock seals. The wiring harness features Deutsche electrical connectors that are watertight and have a snap-together fitting that ensures uninterrupted contact, thus eliminating most corrosion problems.

The optional aluminum platform reduces the overall weight of the liftgate, provides superior strength, and allows the truck or trailer carrier to haul heavier payloads.

And to top it all of: the BMR comes GALVANIZED STANDARD – at no additional cost!

Maxon has always been at the forefront of designing liftgates to meet the special needs of its customers. Non-conventional loading practices require unique liftgate solutions. Our company has met the challenge by expanding our product line to offer a variety of gas bottle delivery liftgates.

Special Functionality

The material handling needs of different industries oftentimes requires a special liftgate. Maxon has designed a family of products for the gas bottle industry with the CS Series.
