LoadBlazer Commercial Grade Liftgate


Anthony’s LoadBlazer delivers performance, dependability, and value. LoadBlazer A unique Stabilizer Beam — a beefy 3 inch, 11 gauge tubular steel beam connects two lift arms, balancing heavy loads and virtually eliminating side to side shifting. Twin Hydraulic Cylinders provide direct drive lifting power, evenly, at each side. No lifting cables or chains to maintain and wear out.

*NOTICE: Some models of Anthony Liftgates may be provided with step devices to assist the ingress and egress of the truck or trailer rear. These devices are NOT to be considered ALL INCLUSIVE of any requirements or guidelines regarding proper ingress and egress of trucks and trailers. These items are provided as only an added feature for installers to help simplify the meeting of possible ingress and egress requirements. As there are many variables in truck sizes and shapes, it is the installer’s responsibility to determine proper ingress and egress requirements, such as steps and hand grips, for each vehicle receiving an Anthony liftgate.
