Modular Rear Tipping


Modular Tipping Container Carrying Semitrailer (without auxiliary tipping structure), EU rules, for transport and rear tipping of Containers of various type and measures.

The semitrailer  is equipped with a longitudinal sliding system of twist-locks arms that permits always to place the transported units in a perfectly balanced position during the road transport, with a correct distribution of weights over the axles and on hinge-pin.

For the tipping operations, the container slides up to the back end of the chassis (moved by hydraulic cylinder put into action with a self-contained electromotor). At the end of the operations, the container is again replaced in the balanced position for the road transportation.

Description of the Model
  • N.1 Freight Container ISO: 20', 30'.
  • N.1 Freight Container ISO: 30', 40'.
  • N.1 Freight Container ISO: 40'. 
  • N.1 UIC Swap Body Group: 96 (equipped with an
    extra couple of lower corner casting positioned
    on front end of the Container having a distance
    equal to 800 mm starting from the front couple
    standard of corner casting).

The Containers classified as "UIC Swap Bodies" must be certified as "suitable for tipping" by the Manufacturer of them.


Comparison between Modular Rear Tipping Container Carrying Semitrailers and "conventional" types.

It can transport containers of various lengths and permit the loading and unloading by means of tipping operations at rear back end of the semitrailer.

It can carry containers of various lengths, but the access to shorter containers require extensible platforms as such containers are not positioned on the rear back end of the frame.

it can carry containers of various lengths, but it can rear tip ONLY ONE type of container!

The road circulation is always in complete safety and in full compliance with the road regulations: no need to travel with unbalanced containers on the back end of the semitrailer. In fact, the shorter containers are placed centrally on the frame and only at the moment of the rear tipping operations they are shifted toward the rear back end of the semitrailer.If the rear back end tipping is required, the shorter containers must be placed with alignment to the rear of the vehicle, causing an imbalance in the distribution of weights that, besides affecting the safety, it is prohibited by the road regulations.
The traslation is absolutely autonomous and independent respect the tractor and the operation is fully controlled by an electronic sequence of required actions. Maximum safety and ease of use: the Operator simply by pressing of buttons on a single keyboard move the shifters arms in the correct position depending on the length of the container. That's all.Not Applicable.
The tare of the semitrailer is almost similar to that of a comparable conventional semitrailer.If the tare is the same, why waive the possibility to carry and rear tip containers of different lengths?

With only one vehicle (and therefore with a single investment cost) the needs of transporting and tipping containers of various lengths are met  Ultimately that is the equation:

More Containers = One Semitrailer.

One Semitrailer = "Flexible" investment.

Implies the need to equip its fleet of how many units are the lengths of the containers to carry and rear tip. Ultimately that is the equation:

More Containers = More Semitrailers.

More Semitrailers = "Rigid" investment.
