    She about maxes out the lift. We actualy do this on a regular basis (maybe once a month) since we travel some distance. The lift is a 3k lb model but that is I think out 18" from the rails. Good product though everyone should have one, it's a dump through lift gate FYI

    The only thing that might make me nervous is the chains?? Are they holding the actual weight, im sure you have some pretty stout chains on there I guess I really just don't know how thoese lift gates work. I laugh at the name because my guys have all of my turcks named with girls names and most of the equipment lol.
