Before our Tippers were engineered, trailers were emptied manually. Using valuable time and resources, this cost the customer a tremendous amount. We asked the question: What if we could pick up the entire trailer and dump it? Once the Tipper was made, our customers were able to back the trailer up to our tipper and dump the entire load in approximately three minutes. This solution resulted in increased efficiencies in process and production, exponential cost savings and safety, and increased revenue for the customer. Since then, our tippers have been utilized in many industries including bulk products, recycling, solid waste, biomass and agricultural.
