Two versions are available, swing lip and sliding deck. We provide circuit drawings and technical help for both models.
The swing lip version lifts the main platform on a single acting circuit, this then pressurises and moves a shuttle valve in a specifically designed block, which then directs the oil to the lip, which can be either single-acting or double-acting. The platform then lowers onto the back of the vehicle and loading can begin. Movement of the platform when engaged can be allowed by permanently energising the float coil. These systems are very adaptable, and we provide advice and assistance to meet any design requirements.
The sliding deck version acts in a similar way to the swing lip version. The main deck performs a lift and then the inner deck slides out by means of a double-acting circuit. The sliding deck positions at the vehicle rear and loading and unloading can begin. These systems are highly adaptable, and can effectively carry out a wide range of functions.
