For Full-Size Van Side Entry Applications

Lifting Capacity: 600 lbs.
Weight: 345 lbs.
Platform Length: 43" & 47"
The Vangater II Series is VA accepted and fully NHTSA compliant.
The Vangater Series lifts for wheelchairs offers 30" of usable width, and two platform usable lengths of 43" and 47". (47" platform can only be used in vans with lowered floors)
Outboard Roll Stop
For your safety, the electric roll stop raises to the vertical position before the platform leaves the ground. Special sensors prevent the handicapped lift from raising if the roll stop is not fully engaged.
Hand Held Control
The standard hand-held controls all lift functions. For greater convenience, an optional remote control system is available.
Vertical Folding Platform
With the lift for a wheelchair in the stowed position, over half of the van's side door is available for ambulatory use as well as cargo.
The lift's switch arm features an up/down control, allowing the wheelchair user to control the handicapped lift while on the platform. The "level" switch adjusts the tilt of the platform as needed.
The control tower features on-lift controls operating every function of the lift for your wheelchair. For your peace-of-mind, a manual back-up system allows you to operate the lift easily, even in the event of vehicle electrical failure.
Threshold Sensor Mat
If the threshold sensor mat is occupied when the handicapped lift platform is below vehicle floor level, lift operation will be prevented, and visual/audible warnings will alert passengers and attendants to unsafe conditions.
Optional Power Door Openers
The optional automatic door operators give you complete control of your mobility. The doors can be opened and closed with all standard and optional lift for wheelchair controls.
