Doonan Specialized Trailer

Doonan Specialized Trailer recently installed a Maxon Railift RC-2B series liftgate on a Chaparral II flatbed trailer creating a flatbed liftgate trailer.

The Doonan Chaparral II model trailer, combined with the efficiency of the Maxon liftgate, provides better capacity and durability for demanding applications. The self-contained liftgate provides ease of loading and unloading from the rear of the trailer and ensures a level ride throughout the lift for maximum load stability.

The 28’ x 102 aluminum, two-axle, 22.5 tires, Chaparral II was determined to be an ideal design for the size and medium-duty load requirements required, according to Doonan.

Key Maxon Railift Liftgate features include:

  • Fully automatic operation—no manual folding or unfolding.
  • Large platform can handle palletized or cart loads.
  • Level ride platform.
  • Lifting capacity of up to 2,000 pounds.
  • High performing medium-duty Railift combined with low maintenance needs
