Bär Cargolift RetFalt

The retractable tail lift with single folded platform 

High degree of pre-assembly with flexible and low-maintenance use – Bär Cargolift RetFalt. These retractable taillifts can be quickly mounted on trucks by means of a bolted suspension or on semitrailers by means of a bracketed suspension.

While the Cargolift RetFalt is stowed away under the vehicle in driving position, it can quickly be ready for use. After sliding out hydraulically, the platform is easily unfolded manually and provides a large surface for trolley or pallet transport.

The aluminium sliding mechanism with maintenance free sliding guide is extremely sturdy and has very good sliding properties. The benefits can be seen in frequent use and continuous operation, in particular.

Bär Cargolift RetFalt for trucks and semitrailers

In order to facilitate efficient installation and use of the RetFalt Cargolift, BÄR distinguishes the following scenarios:

RetFalt Cargolifts for trucks

When installed on a truck, the BC R21 facilitates transport of trolleys or pallets with forklifts, in particular, whereas BC R41, with its high load capacity and large platform is designed for pallets. The BC R4U offers various driving positions for operation with and without trailers for trucks with deep coupling.

  • BC 1500 R21
  • BC 2000 R41
  • BC 2500 R41

  • BC 2000 R2T 
  • BC 2000 R4T
  • BC 2500 R4T
  • BC 2000 R4C
  • BC 2500 R4C

For loading goods from the side

You can load the platform from the side using the optional side loading ramp (length 1,000 mm, width 860 mm). It is hooked into two robust stainless steel hook-in devices.

For delivery in a residential area in the early morning - PIEK equipment

For loading and unloading in noise-sensitive environments, BÄR recommends the PIEK equipment. This guarantees that the Cargolift is quieter than 60 dB(A) when in use. In addition to a silentpower pack, the BC is equipped with the noise-reducing SilentGrip on the platform surface as well as other features which are described in more detail in the portfolio brochure.
