Maxilift extends Tommy Gate G2 range

Tommy Gate has labelled the G2 Series “the most technologically advanced and highest quality lift gate on the market”. To ensure optimum quality and finish, every lift gate manufactured by Tommy Gate is hand crafted and inspected.

The G2 Series lift gates operate via a pair of hydraulic cylinders that independently lift each side of the load to ensure loads remain completely stable and even during lifting. A platform torsion spring enables the lift gate to easily fold back into place.

For increased safety, the G2 Series uses a simple system that prevents the lift gate from being accidentally activated. The system is made up of a fixed control station with a standard on/off switch as well as a second activation switch behind the Tommy Gate logo. If this second switch is not used for 90 seconds, the system automatically times off. An optional heavy-duty pendant control also provides these safety features.

A major point of difference with the G2 Series is that it is fully compatible with towbars unlike many tuck-away style units. Installation is simple and can be done in as little as a few hours without the need to relocate the spare wheel during installation. Instead, the spare wheel remains below, keeping tray space free. It can be fitted to most locations of most vehicle bodies including the back or side and comes complete with a full lighting kit that is pre-wired and a number plate kit.

All lift gates in the G2 Series are lightweight yet strong and robust. Various platform options are available including aluminium, steel and Tommy traction which is well-suited when a non-slip option is required, including muddy conditions which are prevalent in industries such as the tyre industry and local council work.

The new G2 87 with folding platform and G2 87 Tommy Traction 33 arrived in Australia in June. These models feature the added benefits of a low height of 500mm above the tray level which makes them well suited to low sided trucks or trailers. Despite this however, they still offer a large lifting platform.

The G2 87 Tommy Traction 33 features a see-through mesh which offers less wind resistance and has a great load grip for increased safety.

The Tommy Gate G2 Series is available to suit all vehicles from style side utes to heavy trucks.
