Maxon DMD Series Railift Version 2.0 - All you need to know

Alert! Another Maxon product announcement just arrived at our finger tips.  Find out all about Maxon's updated DMD model below.

In 2012, the year the DMD was first introduced to the market place, the DMD revolutionized the medium duty Railift™ segment by introducing direct-lift technology versus cables/chains and pulleys. Now in 2018, we are pleased to introduce the next generation of the DMD.


Maxon’s DMD Generation 2.0 Series Railift is a fully hydraulic, direct-lift that utilizes a twin cylinder design to ensure smooth and efficient performance. Specific to the medium-duty market, the DMD was recently redesigned to incorporate numerous improvements. Featuring Aluminum columns paired with glavanized steel runners, all-aluminum platforms and optional dual or single cart stops, the DMD is a welcomed addition to the already popular and classic Railift series.
