A liftgate is a mechanical device attached to the back of a truck so that a heavy object can be lifted to or from the ground.
Unlike a standard flatbed trailer, this kind of trailer can carry taller cargo that would normally violate height restrictions on another trailer.
Thanks to the lowboy trailer, abnormally high cargo can still be transported without having to find special routes.
