A MORE POWERFUL version of the S2LT 2-tonne underbody tipping gear produced by Anthony Carrimore of Harelaw, County Durham, will be launched in April.
The new S5LT will have a five-tonne capacity and is designed to be a practical alternative to front-mounted tipping gear for 7.5-tonne-gvw non-hgv tippers. The scissor-action gear offers improved stability over that of front-end models and will be available in kit form with the option of battery or direct power take-off operation.
Both models can be supplied with a prefabricated chassis and body subframe assembly for immediate installation and the complete kit is supplied with all necessary electrical fittings. Depending on vehicle application and tipper size, the tipping kit weighs approximately 16 kg (3.19cwt).
The price for the new S5LT tipping gear will be announced shortly. The S2LT unit costs £615 excluding vat.
