Ahhh, the "Tipper"

Those are fun. I used to back into one at a dump site in Ohio on a fairly regular basis.

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

That is cool. I can imagine a meeting where they were trying to figure out how to unload, and someone came up with this idea and was ridiculed.

Also, it looks like a Patriot missile launcher. tlumacki_raytheonfacililty_metro069.jpg

Yup! I even got to run it! I've run lots of different machinery in my life, but that was by far the BIGGEST! and the easiest too. On, Raise, Lower, Off. Even a CAVEMAN could do it!

Amazing what you can do with a couple of hydraulic rams, and an Engineer!

OOOOOOOOHH buddy the crazy ways I could think to use a wonderful device like this. Sprinkles on the worlds biggest bowl of ice cream perhaps. A good way to dump the sauce on the worlds largest pizza....sorry guys I'm hungry.

If only EVERY Receiver had one. No more waiting HOURS for a Live Ununload. Just do a "Dump n' Run"!

See also 43,500 lbs of raw crushed gypsum.

WHY they sent a reefer to pick that up I'll never know...
