New Hoist Tilts Truck Box 90 Degrees
By using a hydraulically-operated tailgate, a part of the "Hired Hand" adapter kit from Austring Enterprises, one man can load and unload a wide variety of materials right from the cab. The tailor-made tailgate is designed to fold hydraulically around the sides of the box so it's out of the way and not damaged when the box is tilted a full 90 degrees.
The "Hired Hand" kit - including the adapter cylinder and hardware for tilting the box 90 degrees, and the hydraulic endgate - will be marketed in 1977 to fit most 16 ft. truck boxes. In the hopper is a kit designed for pickup trucks. Both units - the full tilt hoist and the hydraulically operated tailgate - can be purchased separately.
