The new design reflects commitments to maximising efficiency and minimising maintenance.
PHIL’s new Autogate Tailgate for Komatsu rigid frame trucks is designed with a traditional outrigger that bolts to the undercarriage of the off-highway truck. This new design does not require any welding to the frame, allowing operators to retain Komatsu’s original OEM truck frame warranty. The design’s new ‘banana superstructure’ provides stability and structural integrity. The new design minimises frustrations of end user service departments concerning premature tailgate chain wear and roller box maintenance found previously on tailgates designed for Komatsu rigid frame trucks.
As with PHIL’s entire line of Autogate Tailgates, a three-year warranty is standard when installed with PHIL installation supervision assistance or at their Peoria, Illinois factory. Optional body seals, fluidic seals and cushion pads are available to further customize PHIL’s Autogate Tailgates for unique applications. When capacity is a concern, the PHIL Autogate Tailgate for Komatsu rigid frame trucks can also be built up for sideboards. Sideboards are available in one-inch increments from 6 in. to 40 in. in height and provide a unified body height while increasing the volumetric capacity of the truck body, helping operators achieve optimal loads.
