The correct tipping gear ensures safety and profitability

The correct tipping gear ensures safety and profitability
A lot of commercial vehicles actually haul large amounts of minerals, grains and other bulk materials around the UK each year. The figure for aggregates alone is 60,000,000 tonnes, so the total number of vehicle movements and load discharges is huge. Tipping vehicles remain the most efficient and profitable method for ejecting loads – but only when specified correctly.

The Thompsons Group, claims to be the UK’s leading tipper bodybuilder, and therefore prioritises reliability and good customer service above all else. Having established its new Scottish operations in July 2017, its first order was for five 32 tonne Loadmaster bodies for the NWH Group. The customer chose to specify lightweight Edbro CX15 cylinders on all of the five bodies, believing Edbro to be the best on the market. Thompsons was happy to oblige due the robust quality and first-class service from the brand.

Risk of accidents during tipping reduced
A new range of Edbro inclinometers which will bring improved levels of safety to tipping operations has been introduced by JOST. The inclinometer constantly monitors the angle of the rear end of the tipper and stops its operation if a dangerous angle is being approached. The tipping angle is measured constantly while a simple in-cab control unit allows the driver to monitor the operation.

Edbro Slims Down the Lightest Tipping Cylinder

Edbro Slims Down the Lightest Tipping Cylinder
Edbro is renowned for manufacturing light and reliable tipping cylinders which increase payload and hence profits for fleet operators. Its flagship CS range of cylinders for front end truck and trailer applications is already proven to be the lightest product of its kind on the market; Edbro has taken a further step in the battle to increase operator payloads. Further weight savings have been made within the CS cylinder range and these are complimented by a new range of mounting brackets, which deliver savings of up to 20%; all of which has been achieved whilst maintaining the same ‘fit and forget’ reliability.

Hydraulic Tipping Cylinders Will Last the Life of the Vehicle, if Properly Maintained…. says Peter Smith of Edbro PLC

Hydraulic Tipping Cylinders Will Last the Life of the Vehicle, if Properly Maintained…. says Peter Smith of Edbro PLC
Hydraulic tipping cylinders are fundamental components to the safe and reliable operation of rigid trucks and trailers. Properly maintained, they will last the life of the vehicle. Unfortunately, maintenance is all too often overlooked, and cylinders suffer abuse in key areas, which can affect both their safety in operation and also their reliability. The core problem seems to be one of time constraints: pressurised schedules that prevent operators taking vehicles out of service even for a few hours, to perform routine maintenance. One can understand this reticence, with a truck inoperative for a day costing around £400. However, on the other side of the equation, there is the fact that, if a truck is taken out of service for preventative maintenance, then the maintenance is scheduled; the operator is in control and can determine the most opportune time for the work to be performed. The alternative could be a breakdown at much higher cost.
