Tipping is all about depositing bulk loose materials like aggregates from a huge trailer that is attached to a prime mover or rigid vehicle.
Typically, a tipper truck is equipped with a hydraulic tip body. It is attached at the rear to allow the truck body’s front to be lifted so that the contents settle on the ground behind the truck at delivery sites. They come in various axle configurations and have carrying capacity from 2 to 25 tonnes.
This type of trailer tends to tip over during unloading. Experience is required for safe unloading. Examples of accessories are air operated tailgate locks, tipper bin liners, rollover tarps and electronic weighing scales.
