FLEXIGATE is designed to allow tipper operators to be more flexible in their range of work duties by combining the benefits of a typical top hinged tipper tailgate with a side opening ‘barn door’ tailgate, all in one easy to use unit.

Simple & easy to use

  • Full benefits of Interchangeability without changing tailgates
  • Suitable for normal tipper duties
  • All the benefits of a ‘drop’ tailgate to transport plant & equipment
  • Minimal weight increase maximises payload
  • Boweld unique ‘P’ type double acting tailgate hinges
  • May be used in conjunction with Boweld Airclaw tailgate locking system
  • Low maintenance
  • Available as original equipment or retrofit

The FLEXIGATE offers new levels of versatility to operators of tipper bodies. The specially designed tailgate utilises a unique fastening system which enables the operator to interchange between a standard top hinged ‘tipper’ tailgate and a fully opening to one side ‘barn door’.

This unique system has been designed and developed exclusively by Boweld and is now the subject of a patent application.
