Provides Better Loading Target leading to larger loads
With an open dump bed, only 75% of the body can be used effectively, thus creating large voids of unusable area towards the rear of the bed.
The Autogate® Tailgate offer the loader operator a better loading target and eliminate the need to reposition rocks in the body to keep them from falling off the back.
Volumetric capacity increase calculations
With the truck bed closed, you’ll realize a volumetric capacity increase of up to 15%, depending on the material hauled.
How is the increase in volumetric capacity calculated? The increase in volumetric capacity is 10% of your payload. For example, a 40-ton truck will get approximately 4 additional cubic yards of volumetric capacity. Calculations may vary depending on the density of the material being hauled.
