11 Apr Lift Gates:
A lift gate can make so many jobs easier. It’s especially useful for someone who makes a living transporting heavy or awkward items in a truck or van; it’s a broad range of professions, the most common of which, among many, would be movers and caterers.
There are many types of lift gates. Anderson Forklift offers many of the different styles and models (if you have any questions, remember to give Anderson Forklift a call to speak directly with experienced staff as to which model will work best for both the type of work you do, and that’s best-suited for the vehicle in which you plan to install it). If you own a cargo van, consider the cantilevered models; these models have a large platform, and a wide base that’s perfect for a BBQ, or a stove, or other heavy item. And it’s not just a good tool for people who work as a caterer, but anyone who owns a cargo van and wants a reliable and efficient lift gate mounted.
The Tommy Gate Lift Gate is meant to be mounted on the back of a non-commercial truck. The gate blends in to the truck’s bed, and is installed in the place of the truck’s tailgate. It’s a sharp-looking model that doesn’t appear out of place when not at work.
