MaxiTRANS® has released its tipper liner product, ‘Landslide®’. The only proprietary tipper liner in Australia sold directly from the trailer manufacturer, MaxiTRANS is able to use its broad tipper experience to engineer the tipper and liner in unison to ensure the ideal tip.
Initially available as an option on all Hamelex White® standard width trailers and bodies, Landslide® reduces the tip angle by up to 30% when unloading an end tipper, compared to a tipper with no liner installed, reducing the trailer’s centre of gravity and providing a safer more stable tipping platform. As a further safety benefit, the height of the tipped trailer is also lower, reducing the chance of it making contact with overhead obstacles.
Kevin Manfield, MaxiTRANS General Manager of Products and Markets, said that fitting Landslide® during trailer manufacture improves price and delivery. “Due to it being a proprietary product, MaxiTRANS is able to install Landslide® during the primary manufacturing process, rather than being installed after completion by a third party. This provides us with lead time and cost efficiencies that we’re able to pass on to our customers,” Kevin said.
Landslide’s installation method also offers other advantages. “Landslide® is affixed to the trailer using a unique method which eliminates the need for rivets,” Kevin said. “The removal of unsightly rivets from the outside of the tub improves aesthetics and also means there are fewer catch points inside the tub, resulting in better product discharge.”
MaxiTRANS stated that in-built UV protection ensures Landslide® has an optimum life in the harsh Australian sun, while the trailer is reinforced by impact and abrasion resistance. “Fitting Landslide® tipper liner to trailers absorbs many of the effects of materials being loaded and unloaded, protecting the trailer body from a large degree of wear and damage,” said Kevin.
Landslide® is available now via the MaxiTRANS Dealer Network as an option on all new Hamelex White standard width rigid, dog and semi tippers.
