Installation takes about two hours and requires only routing the power and ground cables and drilling two 9/16 holes thru the truck bed for schedule 8 bolts with two backing plates, securing the deck to the truck.
The hydraulic pump and motor are already installed at the front frame member of the lift assembly.
The short and long-bed versions differ only in overall length and the size of the lift arm. Exercise caution when attaching or detaching the deck from the lift. Both the deck and the lift frame weigh about #300.
When secure in the truck, the deck is about 6" below the sidewalls of my Chevy 2500HD pickup. The 58" width of the deck leaves about 2" on either side between the deck and the sidewalls. The inside dimension between the landing wheels on the standard deck is 62" with the wheel mount frames are 58" between. The Can-Am Spyder deck wheels and frames are 4" further apart.
The two to-position landing wheels are detachable.
The wheels can be inverted for use on soft surfaces, as shown here. The deck is lifted about 2" from the ground.
The wheel here is in the standard position. The deck will be within 1/2" of the pavement when landed. The wheel mount is similar to a hitch reciever and has two positions 4" increments as pictured.
The 18" deck extension on the short or long-bed models is installed in the same reciever sockets.
The control buttons are on a pendent cable which can be unplugged in order that un-authorized individuals do not attempt to operate the deck.
The stock decks extend 8 - 10" beyond the back of the truck bed, depending on your venicle and bed liner, headache rack, etc. These systems are designed to work with most trailering situations, but call us if you have questions.
