Minute Man wheel lifts go places where full-sized wreckers only dream of. Operation is done from inside your truck with the included six button hand control. For best results please note: The Minute Man Slide In Wheel Lift is designed to be installed on a pickup or cab-chassis. Models are available to fit either long bed (8 ft.) Or short bed (6.5 ft.). Recommended GVWR is 10,000. For best results we recommend 10,000 or greater GVWR. Never exceed mfg GVWR. The addition of springs to a stock suspension in the rear is necessary – either add leaves or a SuperSprings package. The HDH is available in short or long bed models. We recommend the use of our front counter weight package.
The Minute Man is easily installed and can be transferred to other trucks in your fleet. The hydraulic pump is self-contained and pre-installed and wired to the wheel-lift for easy servicing. The Minute Man is powered by one 12V battery. All functions are powered by hydraulics (boom UP/DOWN, fold IN/OUT, jaws OPEN/CLOSE). Minute Man HDH has a 60″ reach capacity. The HDH differs from the original wheel lift model because the jaws or L-Arms are hydraulic powered whereas the Original is spring actuated.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is the difference between the Minute Man Original & the Minute Man HDH & XD?
A: The difference is on the head of the lift. The MMO (Minute Man Original) has “C-Hooks” that pivot around the tires of the parked vehicle when the lift is backing in. The HDH (Minute Man HDH) has hydraulic powered “L-Arms” which grab the wheels of the vehicle with the push of a button on the in-cab hand control.
Q: Can I put a Minute Man on my F150, or 1500, etc. ?
Q: Does Minute Man sell used or refurbished equipment?
A: Generally speaking we do not deal in used equipment. If you are thinking of buying a used lift from a 3rd party, please see our used Minute Man tips here: click here
Q: Does Minute Man make an underbody lift?
A: No. Both of our models mount in the bed of the truck to the frame. Our customers like how our lift tows compared to other slide in and under-body lifts. Installation of the Minute Man does not require frame modification – some of our competition does.
Q: Can I move my Minute Man from one truck to another?
A: Yes – If both trucks have the same box size. We make 2 different size lifts: a short box (for 6-1/2′ box) and a long box (for 8′ box). Never install a long box lift into a short box truck or vice versa.
Q: Is installation included in the price?
A: No. Installation is available for an additional charge.
