Max­iTRANS RE­LEASES LANDSLIDE ® PRO­PRI­ETARY TIPPER LINER

Australian Transport News - - Contents -

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. 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. Kevin Man­field, Gen­eral Man­ager; Prod­ucts and Mar­kets at Max­iTRANS, 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.
