Motors

Most liftgate motors are 12 volt, DC electric motors used to power the hydraulic system to raise and sometimes lower the liftgate platform.  Classification begins with the the end connection, generally either a 9-Spline or Tang shaft connection.  Occasionally other end connections are used and transfer couplers can be purchased to complete connections.   

Specifications may require a regular or heavy duty, clockwise, counterclockwise or bi-rotational.  A more recent innovation has been the thermal motors with an automatic shutdown circuit to avoid motor overheating.   Specialty motors for more unique applications or older gate models are available upon request.
