With the rapid development of logistics industry in China, the use of tail-lift has entered a high-speed developing period. However, as a new industry, the standard of the tail-lift installation is still lacking. This paper mainly focused on the influence of tail-lift installation on vehicle frame. We built the ADAMS model of tail-liftand finite element of vehicle frame, and analyzed the influence on tail-lift to the vehicle frame while tail-lift in full-loaded status or in traveling position. Finally, experimental verification test of vehicle is carried out. The results show that the simulation is almost consistent with the real vehicle test data, and the maximum stress value of vehicle frame is less than the yield limit of the material.
