Working alongside Fruehauf trailers, we have now developed a non-tipping trailer and body suitable for
the industry we work in. Different to a conventional tipper, this works with a high powered conveyor
belt along the bottom of the body. The whole loading experience is the same as well as the payload,
however when it comes time to emptying the load, this is where we see the difference.
The driver would arrive on site, (using the remote for the system that can control the whole operation from in the cab if needed) ,the automatic tailboard will open, the driver will then start up the belt via the remote. As the belt begins to move, the material will then begin to discharge from the lorry until the whole load has been discharged, within minutes meaning there will be no hold up on busy sites.
As you can see there are many positives of this type of body:
Discharge on any surface and in any weather conditions, whereas
with a normal tipper operations may have to come to a hold.
Can discharge on sites with overhead obstacles.
Belt rated to 250 degrees Celsius so suitable for hot asphalt
Suitable for carrying all kind of aggregates
Discharges load in two minutes, meaning no hold up on sites
