Product Details


Hydraulic Tailgate Kit contains; a high quality DC Power Pack with Australian Made Double Acting Cylinders with 'Burst valves' plus a manual lever control valve + hose & fittings & adapters. This is a ready to fit package.

Powered by 12 or 24 Volt DC this compact Hydraulic Power Pack is ready to fit where you prefer to use a directional control lever(DCV) instead of a full electric control pendant style (see other listings). It is an ideal tail ramp power / control unit. The rams, hose & fittings are included.

This P & T powerpack is designed to supply an oil flow of 5 Lt/Min at a Pressure of 2500 PSI. The Directional Control Valve has a in built micro switch that automatically starts/ stops the powerpack when the lever is moved. The Directional Control Valves lever will spring back to centre automatically, thus stopping current to the powerpack, and also locking your ramps in place. This powerpack is well sized for most tail loaders. Double Acting + "Float" valve. This valve is the best option if you ever park on very soft muddy ground. Ramps will power both up & down, and will also 'hold' in centre lever position, but it also has a 4th extra lever position, so that when ramps are down, they are not locked. This is important if ramps are driven on in soft ground.

With other options , ramps are hydraulically locked, & a heavy machine in mud can actually bend Ram rods if ramps are not supported firmly.

These are designed for a standard ramp style set-up, if you have a larger or heavier loading ramp you may require one of our High-Powered DC Power Packs, extra $325. This package will lift the same tonnage as our higher KW power unit, however the bigger KW unit will move the ramps faster. Speed/Duty cycle of powerpack is the main difference.

We supply 6000 psi Two wire hose & field fit re usable hosetails. This means you are able to cut hose to length & install re usable hose tails using a vice & a spanner. We also supply two 'Safety Burst valves'. These are required by law, so that if an hose is ripped off, the ramps will not crash down.

Items required additionally; (NOT Supplied) Cable, wire for electric hook up. High amp welding cable is ideal from battery to powerpack. Contact us for custom length crimped hoses, or buy from our field fit re usable section.

Please keep in mind all DC powerpacks use a lot of amperage & create a lot of heat. The are designed only for intermittent use. See bottom of this page for an estimate of duty cycle.

# Intermittent use only !

e.g. Mini Cranes, Tail Gate Loaders, Ramps on trailers and low loaders Camper van or camper trailer leveling or any other hydraulic circuit requiring intermittent use, low flow and high pressure hydraulic oil.
