Tommy Gate. The original hydraulic lift

Driven by a single hydraulic cylinder attached to aircraft-grade steel cables, the simple design of the Original Series liftgate has been perfected over the last fifty years. Initially designed for standard pickup-style trucks, the Original Series is now available for a variety of applications. If you’re looking for simplicity and value, look no further.

With a liftgate, one person can do the job of five, in a manner that is faster and safer than before. An ordinary pickup truck can become a powerful business machine, broadening the scope of its abilities beyond what was previously thought possible.


G2 Series

The G2 Series liftgates are a dual cylinder, parallel arm design that utilises a pair of hydraulic cylinders to lower and raise the lift by applying direct power to both sides of the platform. Providing increased durability for rigorous cycling the G2 series have relatively low maintenance requirements. The paint-before-assembly process ensures the longevity of the liftgate’s aesthetics.
