The Second Generation

The Tommy Gate G2 Series is a dual-cylinder, parallel-arm design which utilizes a pair of hydraulic cylinders to lower and raise the lift by applying direct power to both sides of the platform. With forty-two inches of vertical travel, the G2 Series is a great fit for most any service body.

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.
