2012 has been a busy year for new product introductions by MAXON. We’re excited to announce our third new product this year which is also the newest addition to our industry-leading Tuk-A-Way® product line, the TE-33 liftgate.
The TE-33 boasts a 3,300 lb. lifting capacity, a bolt-on extension plate and a bolt-on heavy-duty step assembly, all in a rugged and economical package.
Engineered in response to customers requiring greater platform space for consolidated palletized loads, the TE-33 is optimal for small- to mid-sized trucks with beds as low as 38”. The TE-33 is available in 48” x 84” or 52” x 84” wedge-type steel platform sizes specifically designed to allow for the smooth transition of load on and off the platform.
All-in-all, the TE-33 has heavy-duty capability without the heavy-duty price tag. “That was our intention”, says Brent Stratton, Co-President of Maxon. “Our designs reflect the needs of our customers. They get the latest innovations all on a sensible budget. “
Large Wedge-Type Platform Design
The TE-33 features large 48” x 84” and 52” x 84” wedge-type steel platforms. The wedge design allows smooth transition of load on and off the platform.
Twin Cylinder Design
The TE-33 features a twin cylinder, mid-arm design resulting in great performance and stability.
The TE-33 features a hydraulic lock valve that takes operator involvement out of the equation. As soon as the control button is released, the gate is always securely locked.
Bolt-On Steps & Extension Plate
The steps and extension plates were strategically designed to bolt-on in order to avoid welding on the gate that would affect the factory paint. The steps were also designed as an integral part of the gate that would easily allow for them to be exchanged in case of dock damage.
This patented, exclusive paint process has a tough polyurea top coat and an aluminum rich primer that combat corrosion and keep the liftgate looking like new.
