Kässbohrer launches aluminium tipper

Semi-trailer manufacturer, Kässbohrer has designed and manufactured the K.SKA A aluminium tipper for agricultural applications.

Kässbohrer’s K.SKA A is suitable to carry a wide range of agricultural materials such as soy, corn, rapeseed, sugar beet, sediments, grains and can also carry bio-waste, pallet goods, bagged waste and fertilisers and is available with 40, 45 and 50 cubic metre volume options.

The K. SKA A series features a lightweight bumper, walking platform and grain sliders. It is also spec’d for a long product life with S700MC steel chassis, hybrid floor and high wear and impact resistant aluminium modular upper structure.

The tipper is offered with S700MC light steel with higher yield strength to provide robustness and longer product life. Light but robust, S700MC steel usage leads to higher payload, fuel saving and less maintenance cost.

The vehicle, the OEM said, is engineered with a low centre of gravity and optimal load distribution even in the toughest off-road conditions.

“K.SKA A is offered with optimised hybrid floor in order to minimise the damage to the vehicle floor during unloading operations,” said Kässbohrer. “Eight millimetre thick aluminium floor at rear side ensures high impact and wear resistance while 6mm at the front offers weight reduction.

In order to offer an improved user-friendly experience, K.SKA A features new lightweight bumper, walking platform and grain sliders. With the integration between the rear door and tarpaulin, K.SKA A allows unloading operations without opening the tarpaulin.

In addition to the operational ease and longer product life it offers, the vehicle also stands for load safety and operational flexibility.

K.SKA A features lashing rings on the floor for the safe transportation of pallet loads. With optional grain socks.

The vehicle also offers two types of seal mechanism with its upper structure, respectively liquid-tight seal and granular tight seal.

Granular tight is achieved by a special rear door hidden sealing system which helps to minimise the exposure of the rubber part of the seal, decreasing the risk of damage during unloading operations.

In order to achieve liquid tightness, the inner body is manufactured by completely welding all the components.
