Tipper TruckA tipper truck is a truck whose trailer is able to be raised, from the front, in order to tip the contents of the trailer out of the back. The rear of the tip trailer is secured, by way of a hinge, to the rear of the chassis of the truck. Below the tip trailer is a hydraulically operated piston-jack, which usually connects to the trailer via a lip at the trailer’s front. When the operator activates the hydraulics, the jack raises the front of the trailer, and the tipper truck discharges the contents of the trailer.
Tipper trucks for sale in the UKTipper trucks for sale in the UK typically feature a hatch on the back of the tip trailer, which is often known as a tailgate. These hatches are generally either hinged so that they can be swung open, in a barn-door configuration, or they are raised upwards by hydraulic pistons or rods, though this is a less common installation in tipper trucks for sale in the UK.
Used tipper trucksUsed tipper trucks in the transit category often feature three axles, with typically one at the front, and two at the rear. This is for load bearing purposes, and also increases the stability of the vehicle, both when travelling, and when tipping. Used transit tipper trucks, as they are sometimes known, acquired this extra sobriquet due to their purpose; the ferrying of material, for example sand, or gravel, between locations, typically relatively long distance, and requiring the traversing of roads and motorways. The material, be it sand or gravel or something else, is in transit, hence, transit tipper truck.
