With reduced maintenance requirements, a wide variety of platform options, and vast hitch compatibility, G2 Series hydraulic lifts are a strong, versatile lift that offers convenience and efficiency.

Hydraulic cylinders are built in-house. Precision cylinder welds are executed by robotic machines, while assembly and testing are done by hand.

Dual-drive liftgates provide increased durability for rigorous cycling and have low maintenance requirements. A paint-before-assembly process increases the longevity of the lift’s aesthetics.
