What model do I need for my truck?
We offer the LH2200M which has polymer moulded brackets and is suitable for normal use, but if you would prefer something slightly more robust, the LH3000M is the heavy duty version with basic steel brackets and ball bearings.
Is it as easy as it seems?
Yes it is. The Loadhandler kit fits directly onto your tailgate and is held in place with sturdy straps. There is no welding or drilling required (and when you've finished, it simply comes off again). Properly fitted with the padded brackets and sturdy fixing straps supplied, the Loadhandler Pickup Unloader will not damage your truck.
What should I watch out for?
Material building up behind the wheel arches. Clear this if it stops the load or, if it's a recurring problem and you use the Loadhandler a lot, why not knock up a plywood shield to prevent filling behind the arches.
The Loadhandler relies on the low-friction 'dragsheet' sliding over the bed or floor of the truck therefore you want to minimise any additional resistance. If your floor is old or rusted, simply place a ribbed rubber mat over the bed, or a thin plywood sheet and this will ensure the load will slide smoothly and prevent damage or tearing to the drag sheet. (However in normal use, any small tears can be easily repaired using duct tape).
How do I deal with any soil, compost or stones left behind?
If you have any loose material left in after unloading, it can easily be raked out afterwards. Of if you have a moulded liner, why not use the Loadhandler Bedliner Rake - a purpose designed tool that fits easily to any standard broom.
