Description

Tipping trailer offers the best way of transporting or unloading difficult to handle bulk loads such as Construction material (earth, sand, gravel or asphaltetc......), Agriculture material (residues or weeds etc) and other loose materials.

Chassis and Upper Body Structure Design

"DYNA"trailer uses a low-bed chassis structure design which lowers the centre of gravity of the entire trailer to enhance the stability and controllability. With a supporting frame (connecting the upper body and the chassis) installed as standard, the trailer provide even more stable control while tipping / lowering.

 

Body panels are made of high quality steel plate with “U” shape channels (Figure 2) reinforced, but even then round steel tubes have installed on the top of body (Figure 3), which can prevent trailer panels from being out of shape when the trailer loading is heavy.

Front Mount Hydraulic Ram

"DYNA" trailer has a very useful tipping angle of 45 degrees, achieved by the use of a heavy duty 5 stages hydraulic ram. Unloading is quick and effective, using power take-off to drive hydraulic gear pump, and air proportional cab switch with full integrated lever to control both PTO engagement and body tipping / lowering.

Advantages

  • Huge amount of loading capacity. Much more capacity than a standard double / triple axle trucks.
    1. 35m3for Tripe Axle Model, Maximum Payload of 45,000KG.
    2. 28m3for Double Axle Model, Maximum Payload of 39,000KG.
  • Since tractor is a separate, individual vehicle from trailer, therefore numbers of trailer can connected to a tractor. It’s mean increase flexibility for job allocation.
  • In the event of a breakdown, a tractor unit can be exchanged quickly and the load delivered to its destination without undue delay.

Disadvantages

  • Less drivability on rough terrain. As trailer doesn’t have power on wheels, much easier to lose traction on muddy road.
  • Less controllability on narrow area. Since trailer is a combination vehicle and has a longer overall length, therefore it needs more space to make turns / maneuver.
