Top Trailers, a company known for its creativity and innovation, is to exhibit a new design side tipper at the Johannesburg Truck & Bus Show, which will run concurrently with the
, to be staged at the Expo Centre, Nasrec, from October 6-16.
It was due to the fact that Top Trailers’ motto is “the sky is NOT the limit” that prompted Johan Kotze, the former owner of Spencer Trailers, approached Top Trailers with his revolutionary design for an inter-link side tipper, known as the Swingbin.
This new technology trailer has been added to Top Trailers’ existing side tipper link range. The new concept trailer has undergone stringent testing and the demo model performed exceptionally well under all conditions and applications. The major difference between the traditional side tipper and the Swingbin lies in the design and mechanical operation of the bin. The design has been patented and is exclusive to Top Trailers.
The designers of the Swingbin claim it has many benefits, including: it tips at a third of the normal hydraulic pressure, the floor is a separate part that can be replaced, making relining of the bin less expensive, the bin rotates only 50 degrees compared to 135 degrees for a traditional side tipper, it is not limited to 50m3 load capacity, the Swingbin can be mounted on a standard side tipper chassis and the existing hydraulic cylinders can be used when doing the conversion.
