Bär Cargolift - Lifting Performance.

Bär Cargolift Ret/HydFalt

Flexible, simple and robust – with hydraulic folding on request

Available since 1994, the Bär Ret/HydFalt Cargolift product group remains a force of innovation. After all, HydFalt Cargolifts can be extended and retracted hydraulically, and can also be folded hydraulically. This increases user comfort in daily use and makes the Cargolift ready for use even more quickly. The standard anodised aluminium platform also gives it an attractive appearance.

Those who prefer manual platform folding choose the RetFalt version. All Ret/HydFalt Cargolifts have a double folded platform and automatic stops which make retraction and extension in the dark or in poor weather conditions easier.

With a BDF swapping mechanism, a universal distribution vehicle is created

All retractable Ret/HydFalt Cargolifts – no matter if folded manually (R42) or hydraulically (H42) – can be mounted on BDF swap bodies. With the lifting arm stops and bridge plate (both optional), you can choose between various swap bodies in accordance with EN 284. Platform / flatbed, dry freight or refrigerated body with size C 715 and C745 (also C 782 after modification).

Optimum is the fitment of Bär Ret/HydFalt Cargolifts on a 3-axle truck with a 4500 / 4600 mm wheelbase - even with a C 715 body. The manoeuvrability, installation space and load distribution are better than with a 4800 mm wheel base. Moreover, extension to the swap body edges of C 715 and C 745 takes place automatically (adjustable by the driver). Any further positions can be approached manually.

This product groups includes the Cargolifts:

  • BC 1500 R42
  • BC 2000 R42
  • BC 1500 H42
  • BC 2000 H42
