Multi function tailgate introduced

Lake Crystal, Minn., January 13, 2011—Crysteel Manufacturing Inc. recently introduced the versatile High ‘N Slide multi-function tailgate as part of its Crysteel Select Dump Body program. The High ‘N Slide tailgate (patent pending) offers traditional dump-through, sliding and high-lift functionality in a single tailgate. Through a simple mechanical adjustment, the tailgate switches from high-lift, with 21 inches of clearance, to sliding mode. Traditional dumpthrough is always available.

The high-lift mode is especially useful for emptying large bulky items such as rip-rap without damaging the tailgate, or for brush removal without having to lay the tailgate down. In sliding configuration, the tailgate allows users to control the metering of salt, sand, pea gravel and other materials. It also provides easy access to mulch, asphalt, etc., without raising the dump body when shovel loads are required.

The High ‘N Slide Tailgate is available through Crysteel’s Select Dump Body program. The Select body program allows end users to design a custom dump body without incurring the extra cost and lead time normally associated with custom designed products.
