Wood chip trailers are dumped the same, only difference is truck and trailer get raised while the trailer is emptied.

I had a picture a few weeks ago of the same thing at an international paper in Georgia, but it picked the whole truck and trailer up as well.

I picked up a load of sweet potatoes that they just ran a conveyor belt into the trailer and just dumped them all on the floor.

The receiver used tippers to unload the trailers.

They just had me drop/hook so I didn't see the tipper in action.

Would you seriously let them tip your tractor? Everything in the cab and sleeper would end up in a heap on your bed. What a mess that would make!! Tip my trailer....... NOT my tractor!

I'm sure they only do this with day cabs and not trucks with sleepers on them. rofl-1.gif

At least I would hope so. shocked.pngrofl-3.gif

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

That is some cool stuff. In the last picture of the entire truck up in the air, if we assume that's all the way up, it's a 31degree angle. The maximum grade allowed on the interstate is a 8% grade, if I'm not mistaken. A 8% grade is a 33.75 degree angle. So it's possible that many of us have pulled that steep of a grade.

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

Hey Bruce... that actually was not all the way in the shot I posted... below is another shot with the lift all the way up. Looks to be closer to 80 degree angle to me.
