Loading and unloading ladders from the roofs of today’s cargo vans can be rough on an employee’s back and the vehicle.
But a new one-handed loading system called the Max-Rack makes the task easy.
Ranger Design unveiled their new Ranger Max-Rack, a one-handed drop-down ladder rack for cargo vans, during the 2015 The Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.
The rack greatly simplifies loading and unloading ladders with its single-motion operation that protects the operator and the vehicle.
- Lowers up to 50 inches in one single motion with the operator out of the path of the descending ladder.
- Was subjected to harsh testing (5-year life cycle tests, 108-degree thermo cycling and freezing rain tests) and passed with flying colors. It was also extensively field tested for real-life feedback from tradesmen.
- The standout feature of the rack’s design is the ease of operation. No secondary motion is required to lower the rack. Its gas shock assisted descent makes operation a safe and easy task.
