Confident Feeling when using a Liftgate

When we bought our first truck in 2005 it did not have a lift gate but within the year we added one and have had the same brand of lift gate on all of our trucks. 

Our first experience with a lift gate was helping another truck with a computer move in the middle of the night from building to building.  What a stressful night as that lift gate while a popular brand should have been retired.  The lift gate platform was not level and it took all of us to hold the computer servers upright as they were loaded and unloaded.  We knew then that we did not want that brand of lift gate and we wanted a gate that would level itself and had a lot of safety features.  

A Palfinger is not a cheap lift gate but it does the job with class and no stress.
