The Original Since 1965
Throughout the last 45 years the Original Series has been a staple in the liftgate industry. Invented by Delbert “Bus” Brown, and first sold for pickups in 1965, the assembly process used in constructing Original Series liftgates has not changed much over the years. Although components have been upgraded, the basic design is essentially the same.
Fully-enclosed hydraulic system
The main frame box contains the electrical & hydraulic systems, which includes a full-size pump and motor unit, pressure relief valves, and cylinder-mounted flow-control valves which prevent rapid, uncontrolled platform descent in the event of a hose failure.
