MaxiTrans liner leaves rivets behind
The Landslide lining can help reduce the tip angle by up to 30 per cent when unloading an end tipper, MaxiTrans says

 

MaxiTrans has released a tipper liner to be installed as an option on its Hamelex White trailers, able to be affixed to the tipper without the use of rivets.

The company’s general manager of products and markets Kevin Manfield said the Landslide range of lines was the only proprietary tipper liner in Australia to be sold directly from the trailer manufacturer.

"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," he said.

The better product discharge offered by the liner would mean that vehicles could reduce their tip angle when unloading an end tipper by up to 30 per cent, compared to a tipper with no liner installed.

This will reduce the trailer’s centre of gravity and providing a safer tipping platform, MaxiTrans said, as well as reducing the chance of a trailer hitting overhead obstacles due to the height of the tipped trailer being lower.

Manfield added that the lining had in-built UV protection, while the trailer is reinforced by impact and abrasion resistance which he said would help protect the trailer body from wear and damage.

"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," he said.

Landslide is available now via the MaxiTrans Dealer Network as an option on all new Hamelex White standard width rigid, dog and semi tippers.
