Tipping Skel

tipping skel

Freighter builds Tipping Skels to meet a range of customer requirements that can vary depending on operating conditions and types of goods carried.

Illustrated on this page is the Freighter Sliding Tipping Skel.  When on the road, the sliding chassis mechanism is fully extended to optimise axle load distribution and maximise payload.

When unloading, the driver applies the truck brakes, releases the slider lock pins and reverses the truck to bring the container to the rear of the triaxle suspension for tipping to unload.

Freighter can also supply Tip Over Axle style tipping skels, depending on you specification requirements and application.
