Maxon Lift, RA Slidelift Series SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA -- New from Maxon Lift Corp. is a new fully galvanized trailer side door liftgate line. The RA Slidelift Series is purpose-built to allow wide arm configurations, for the greatest stability and maximum trailer siderail clearance.

The new level ride RA liftgate is available standard in 3,500-lb. and 4,500-lb. lifting capacities. It's designed to make use of the full trailer width, resulting in large 48", 60" and 82"-wide platforms with depths of 55" and 79".

The RA incorporates two hydraulic lifting cylinders with bidirectional lock valves. It comes completely assembled and prefilled with hydraulic oil. Additional features include greaseable pins and bushings at all pivot points.

For maximum corrosion resistance, the RA features a full galvanized finish standard, without additional charges or lead times.

Maxon Lift Corp. was founded in 1957, when owner Max Lugash invented the Tuk-A-Way liftgate. Half a century later, it remains the largest-selling style of liftgate in North America. Since then, Maxon has initiated and developed a variety of innovative products that have become mainstays of the truck equipment industry.
