Weighing in

The Schmitz Cargobull S.KI tipper trailer has had a makeover, and its new generation of body and frame means added payload and smart weight recording.

The new Schmitz Cargobull S.KI tipper trailer not only features improved payload capacity up to 280kg (50 kg running gear, 180kg body, 50kg frame), it also impresses with improved handling and reliable product quality.

It is equipped with a hydraulically operated tailgate, asphalt pusher and sliding tarpaulin. The pneumatic underride guard rounds off a tipper trailer equipment package that significantly increases convenience and safety.

The improved rounded steel body, with a loading volume of 24m³ has been designed for use on building sites and with a wide, flat floor, the vehicle has a low centre of gravity to ensure optimum handling and an even spread of wear.

Depending on the construction length and frame design, the fully updated modular frame system is anything from 53 to 110kg lighter. The new modular frame system for all trailer lengths is available in a Standard, Light or Heavy-Duty design depending on the level of use. Further weight savings of 50kg have been achieved with the new running gear. However, one thing that has not changed is the ten-year warranty against rust-through for the galvanised S.KI frame generation.

The standard taillight position has been modified for transporting bulk goods and asphalt. It is now available as a version that is 140mm higher, and 80mm set back, which creates a greater distance to the bulk cargo during unloading. As a result, the risk of damage to the underride guard bracket is reduced, while taking legal regulations into account.

The tipper trailer highlights include:

  • Hydraulic tailgate – Using three different operating modes, hydraulic tailgates enable the safe tipping of both fine-grained and coarse bulk materials.
  • Pneumatic underride guard – The electro-pneumatic underride guard with sensors for the LED position indicator has undergone a makeover with optimised mechanics and cable guide.
  • New digital on-board weighing system – To prevent overloading and speed up workflows the on-board weighing system available as an option for tipper trailers meaning the trailers and the roads suffer less wear and there is a reduction in fuel costs and carbon emissions.

The on-board weighing system, which is calibrated ex works, allows the driver to determine and document the vehicle’s payload at the location where the vehicle is loaded. It is no longer necessary to drive to a stationary weighing system, which saves time.

Operation of the on-board weighing system is intuitive, whether via the supplied screen or via smartphone in the beSmart app. The calculated cargo data can be called up by the driver immediately after weighing. The Schmitz Cargobull telematics allow the data to then be transferred and processed further in the TrailerConnect portal.
