Mining Duty Tailgates

PHIL's Traditional Autogate® Tailgate is the first and original commercially available tailgate available! Designed in the 1960's by Phil Philippi, this tailgate works with your off-highway rigid frame truck insuring full truck utilization. Designed to cap off the back end of the truck body, the PHIL Autogate Tailgate contains most any material no matter what is being hauled or the road condition. Whether they are designed to be built up for sideboards or for standard heights, high-strength steel is used throughout. Trouble free operation is simple: the body dumps, the tailgate opens, without any locks, cylinders or controls to malfunction. Simplicity – part of what makes PHIL Autogate Tailgates An Investment Worth Making.
