Benefits on the LH and LLB Hide-A-Way(TM) with wedge platform:
o Chrome plated pins
o Pressure compensated flow controls
o Spring assisted opening and closing of platform
o Low P.S.I. due to larger cylinder surface
o Pump and motor box can be unbolted and moved for better gate installation
o Marine toggle switch (no linkage)
o Heavy duty platform extension designed to accommodate forklift usage
o Power units have thermal protection on motor
o Our secondary platform has twice the amount of vertical supports for extra strength to support the weight.
