It’s Easy. 5 Simple Steps and You’re Ready to Lift.
Here’s our basic guide connecting your LiftGator liftgate to your truck.
What Exactly is a LiftGator?
Our Best Option, the XTR, is Leading the Industry.
The LiftGator XTR is a portable liftgate system that can be attached to most pickup, flatbed, utility or service trucks equipped with 2-inch or 2 ½-inch hitch receivers. Installation takes less than three minutes. LiftGator XTR gives truck owners the flexibility to install and use a 1,200-pound-capacity liftgate when necessary, and to remove and store it when not needed. No truck modifications are required, and the vehicle can be driven with the liftgate attached.
The LiftGator XTR system has a 48″ x 48″ platform operated with a simple button. More than 20 lifts can be completed on a single charge, and the self-contained battery system can be recharged using a truck’s seven-pin trailer connector or the built in 110-volt trickle charge. When installed, LiftGator functions like any other liftgate on the market. When not attached, its three-section foldable platform gives the unit a small footprint that takes up little storage space. This gives the truck owner a liftgate when they need it, and their truck back when they don’t.
Now Available for Commerical Van Applications.
Our Van Option VLG is Changing the Commercial Van Market.
The LiftGator VLG is the industry leading liftgate for commercial van applications. The VLG is more cost effective, easier to use, and lower maintenance than any other liftgate available for commercial vans.
The VLG simply attaches to the van’s hitch receiver and draws power from the 7-pin trailer connector. In use, a torsion spring assisted hinge folds the VLG towards the ground, allowing the van’s doors to be opened. The frame rails are then raised into position and ground supports are lowered to support the lifting. The platform is raised and lowered with the push of a button, making loading heavy items into the van effortless. The VLG can be taken off of the van when not needed, allowing unobstructed use of the van’s double doors.
The VLG features a 50” long x 48” wide extruded aluminum platform, 1200lbs lifting capacity, and is available in either electric powered or manual crank ground supports.
