Introducing Waltco fm1000 concept
WALTCO launched the new liftgate WALTCO FM1000 concept at a press conference 4 March at the The Work Truck Show 2020. The annual event took place 3 - 6 March, at Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The WALTCO FM1000 concept is specifically developed for light duty, final mile delivery vehicles and is WALTCO’s first one piece, full-closure liftgate. It incorporates a rear frame, top door and liftgate in one product, combined with a range of platform depths to suit a variety of load types with a loading capacity of up to 1000 lbs.
“The FM1000 is designed to withstand the harshest of environments and hard work conditions where its critical hydraulic components are protected within the liftgate beam. To ensure maximum use of the vehicle while minimising maintenance and downtime, the FM1000 is fitted in a one piece installation where wear pads are fitted as standard to the liftgate columns,” says Carlos Da Silva, Vice President of Equipment Sales Americas, Tail Lift, Hiab.
Designed and built in the USA, WALTCO liftgates are built to last. They are robustly engineered in combination with smart design and safety as standard to ensure safe and timely deliveries backed by friendly, professional service.
