Northern Irish OEM, SDC Trailers, has launched a new hydraulically powered tipping skeletal trailer for use with 40’ containers to transport and tip bulk materials such as plastic, waste and foodstuffs.
The new trailer is reported to offer a high-volume payload, providing the operator with efficient loading / offloading and increased flexibility to maximise deliveries. Designed for 44-tonne operation, SDC’s high quality finish is guaranteed with premium components including BPW axles, automatic twist locks, JOST landing legs, HYVA tipping gear and Aspock lighting.
SDC said in a statement that it carried out extensive research during the design and development process of the skel tipper and has incorporated advanced safety features including rear stabilising legs to optimise stability and a warning lamp fitted as standard to alert anyone nearby when the tipper is being raised.
The exact trailer specification can be tailored to the customer’s requirements according to SDC. The trailer tipping ram can be powered from the PTO on the truck or an on-board electric / diesel power pack.
“I am delighted to announce the new 40’ addition to our tipping skeletal range, increasing our solutions for the container and bulk materials industry,” said SDC CEO, Enda Cushnahan.
“Enhancing flexibility and efficiency, the 40’ tipping skeletal is not only cost effective for the operator, it also delivers environmental savings through reduced carbon emissions.
“Our engineers have designed and manufactured 150,000 trailers over the last 40 years and this latest innovation is testament to our continued dedication, to provide safe and practical semi-trailer solutions,” he said.
SDC’s range of tipping skeletal trailers provide a highly robust and durable option for use with various containers. The manufacturer offers four different design configurations across the range; a sliding skeletal used for tipping 20’ containers, a flexible sliding design for tipping both 20’ and 30’ containers and a rigid option for 30’ use only.
The launch of SDC’s new 40’ tipping skeletal completes the range, with a solution for efficient, high volume deliveries. The trailer is now in full production at SDC’s ISO accredited manufacturing facilities in the UK and Ireland.
