Fire Truck Accessories: Some Common Knowledge About Tailgate Lift

Some special operation fire trucks, such as equipment fire trucks, are often equipped with truck-mounted forklift and accessories such as tailgate lift. This article introduces some common knowledge of hydraulic tailgate,hope you have interested.



At present, automobile tailgate enterprises are mainly concentrated in the Pearl River Delta and the Yangtze River Delta. The threshold of the automobile tailgate industry is relatively low, and it belongs to a completely market-oriented processing industry. Unlike refit factories, which require relevant national qualifications,so there are many companies that make tailgates, but the scale and quality are uneven.

The difference between domestic and foreign tail boards

Manufacturing process and product serialization are not the main gaps between domestic and foreign tailgates. The lightweight of foreign tailgates and their high requirements for tailgate safety performance should be the two most obvious gaps between domestic and foreign products.

The biggest advantage of domestic tailgate is the cheap price, which is equivalent to about three-quarters of the products in developed countries; the disadvantages of tailgates are also very obvious. In terms of technology, product appearance, manufacturing process and safety performance, domestic tailgate is difficult to achieve the standard in developed countries.

In addition, the material of the tailgate in China is also different from that of developed countries. Domestic tailgate is mainly made of steel plate, while the tailgate in developed countries uses aluminum profiles. The advantage of aluminum profiles is that they can greatly reduce the weight of the tailgate, which is in line with the development direction of lightweight special vehicles.At present, almost 90% of the tailgates in Europe are aluminum profiles.

In terms of safety and reliability, some domestic tailgate manufacturers have reduced safety components in order to meet market needs and reduce costs, resulting in the safety and reliability far inferior to similar foreign products. This is actually caused by the immaturity of the domestic tailgate industry and the imperfect standards of tailgate components.

With continuous development of the economy and the further improvement of logistics supporting facilities, the domestic commercial distribution and industrial distribution fields contain huge market opportunities and potential. From the use of tailgates in developed countries, it can be seen that the loading rate of tailgates in developed countries such as Europe and the United States has reached more than 60%, while the domestic market is currently less than 1%. Today’s European and American markets is the future of the domestic tailgate market.

On the whole, the current domestic tailgate varieties and functions are relatively simple,and it is difficult to meet the special requirements of various industries. Although some enterprises use well-known European brand products for the key parts of the tailgate, the overall manufacturing process is still quite different from that of developed countries. In addition, the domestic tailgate has abvious disadvantages like simple design, manual welding, loud operation and rough process.

With the continuous, rapid and healthy development of national economy, the doubled growth of logistics, coupled with the accelerated construction of various types of highways, highway freight has developed rapidly, and professional transport units and individual transport operators have sprung up like mushrooms after a rain. Since then, many companies have their own transport fleets, and most of them still use manual loading and unloading of goods, which is unsafe, inefficient, unable to exert the economic efficiency of vehicles, and labor-intensive.

After the vehicle is equipped with a tailgate, only one person can complete the loading and unloading of goods, the work efficiency is greatly improved, and the labor intensity is small, which can give full play to the economic efficiency of the vehicle. With the continuous development of the market economy and the growing automobile logistics industry, the use of tailgates in China will become more and more extensive, the demand will continue to increase, and the development prospects will be very broad.
