Welcome to Maxon Lift Corp. Maxon Lift Corp. was founded in 1957. That same year, owner Max Lugash invented the Tuk-A-Way® liftgate, which remains the largest selling style of liftgate in North America. For more than fifty years, Maxon Lift Corp. has initiated and developed a variety of innovative products that have become truck equipment industry benchmarks. Noted below is a brief summary of our entire company product line. MIGHTY MAX Maxon’s Mighty Max 1300 and 1650 liftgates are designed to provide easy, safe, and cost-effective lifting of light to moderate loads. Mighty Max is ideal for trucks, stakebed, and van bodies. RAILIFT® Maxon was the first to bring the rail style liftgate to the United States during the 1970s. The Railift Series is a classic that never goes out of style because its heavy-duty level ride and dock loading capability are designed to handle some of the most demanding distribution requirements. Railifts provide a level ride through-out the lift for maximum load stability. The Railift Series is ideal for bulk delivery and wheeled cargo with a combination of dock and street delivery. CONVENTIONAL Conventional liftgates are the original style of liftgate. These liftgates are stored flush against the door of trucks or trailers, and they often serve as the actual door or tailgate to these vehicles. Maxon’s conventional liftgate offerings provide exceptional reliability, and span a range of uses, from the compact TG to the full-size GPC cantilever. Designed for general freight loading, conventional liftgates can be used with trucks and trailers. TUK-A-WAY® We invented the Tuk-A-Way liftgate so that the platform can fold and stow under the truck body in the dock ready position. Today, Maxon offers a wide range of steel and aluminum platforms of different sizes along with various bed height options. All of our Tuk-A-Ways are low maintenance. The heavy-duty extension plates are made from 1/4” thick diamond plate and have sturdy tubing and channel to help prevent loading damage. The models also feature a weather sealed pump box that protects against the elements. SLIDELIFT® Maxon’s Slidelifts stow horizontally underneath the truck or trailer. Slidelifts don’t need extension plates and therefore can accommodate roll-up as well as swing doors. Maxon offers Slidelift products with level ride (GPSLR) as well as level-ramping ride (GPS/GPSS). All of Maxon’s Slidelift gates include rugged design and smart features like an optional hand held remote control, dual cart stops, and auto leveling. COLUMNLIFT® Maxon’s BMR-A and BMRSD Columnlifts are the culmination of all the best technology, features, and options of any liftgate on the market, offering superior performance—by any measure. Maxon’s Columnlifts are unlike any other column lift on the market. Built tough with rugged columns to withstand gate impacts, precision-engineered with self-centering rollers to eliminate the possibility of jams, and designed with lock valves for operator safety, the BMR-A offers superior performance to any other column lift—faster operation, lower power consumption, and reduced maintenance costs are only the start. GAS BOTTLE Maxon has always been at the forefront of designing liftgates to meet the special needs of its customers. Non-conventional loading practices require unique liftgate solutions. Our company has met the challenge by expanding our product line to offer a variety of gas bottle delivery liftgates. The material handling needs of different industries oftentimes requires a special liftgate. Maxon has designed a family of products for the gas bottle industry with the CS Series.
