The Tilting Tractor Truck consists of a regular truck tractor which has been retrofitted on its back end with a hydraulic tilting system to lift any truck trailer or container chassis (20ft, 40ft, 53ft, etc.). The hydraulic system includes a built-in oil tank, pump, filters, oil lines, and a fifth wheel.
The tilting tractor truck can be fitted with a single hydraulic lifting cylinder (20mt lifting capacity) or twin hydraulic cylinders (40mt lifting capacity).
4-stage hydraulic lifting cylinders powered by the truck’s engine.
Double-function use: The tilting tractor truck can be used in regular mode to haul containers from and to the port and then can be used to tilt the container at its destination.
Single-function use: The tilting tractor truck can be left stationary at the destination plant and its use can be limited to containers that are being delivered from the ports by regular, non-tilting trucks. As this means the tractor does not leave the premises of the unloading facility, an older, more cost-efficient tractor can be refitted for this purpose.
