Truck Liftgates - Recent Price Trend

Truck liftgate prices have been declining during the past three years in light of falling input costs, such as wages and declining steel prices. From 2014 to 2017, liftgate prices have been falling an estimated average rate of 0.5% per year. In addition to falling prices, buyers have benefited from low price volatility during the period, allowing them to confidently budget for their liftgate.

Truck Liftgates - Total Cost of Ownership

Once installed, a typical liftgate requires minimal upkeep and only periodic maintenance during its life span, resulting in a low total cost of ownership. Market leader Maxon recommends visually inspecting the liftgate every quarter, or every 1,250 lift cycles, whichever comes first. Buyers are also encouraged to check the level of hydraulic fluid to ensure it isn't low, and to avoid leaks.
