Comprehensive Liftgate Repair Services

Mechanical Repairs

Liftgates are intricate machinery with multiple components working in unison. Our skilled technicians specialize in:

  • Hydraulic system repair: Addressing leakages, replacing cylinders, and restoring pressure levels.
  • Electrical system repair: Fixing wiring faults, replacing switches, and ensuring the lift motor runs optimally.
  • Structural repairs: Repairing or replacing damaged platforms, rails, and other crucial structural parts.

Diagnostic Services

Liftgate malfunctions are often symptoms of deeper, underlying issues. We employ state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and methods to pinpoint the root cause. This way, we don't just treat the symptoms; we resolve the source, ensuring long-term functionality.

Liftgate Maintenance for Lasting Performance

Proper, periodic maintenance can preemptively address potential problems, extend your liftgate’s lifespan, and save you the costs and downtime of significant repairs.

Hydraulic System Maintenance

Your liftgate's hydraulic system is its lifeblood, and as such, it needs regular attention. We provide

  • Fluid level checks and top-ups with the right grade of hydraulic fluid.
  • Seal inspections and replacements to prevent leaks and ensure efficient operations.
  • Pressure testing to maintain optimal hydraulic pressure for lifting loads.

Electrical System Check-ups

The electrical system of a liftgate is as crucial as its hydraulic counterpart. Maintenance here includes

  • Inspecting wiring harnesses for wear and tear.
  • Testing battery connections and ensuring they are free from corrosion.
  • Checking the functionality of switches and relays.

Structural and Mechanical Inspection

Regular wear and tear can compromise the structural integrity of your liftgate. Our technicians

  • Examine platforms for any signs of deformity or damage.
  • Ensure hinges, welds, and other connection points remain robust.
  • Inspect lifting mechanisms for signs of wear, ensuring smooth movement during operations.

Parts Replacement and Upgrades

When repair requires replacement parts, Suncoast Fleet Services only opts for quality, OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts that fit seamlessly and restore your liftgate's original performance.

For those who wish to upgrade their liftgates, we offer parts that not only replace but also enhance the capability and longevity of the equipment. Whether you're looking to boost weight capacity, enhance hydraulic efficiency, or incorporate new, energy-saving electrical components, we’ve got you covered.
