| The new V-18 aluminum V-Floor unloading system.
More capacity for high-impact and abrasive loads
The aluminum V-18 system is intended for materials that may be too demanding on a standard slat, but do not require the ruggedness of a steel V-Floor slat. Recommended applications include recycled materials and construction debris.
Many of these applications were handled in the past by steel-body dump trailers. However, dump bodies reach their practical payload limit around 50 cubic yards and often have problems with off-balance loads on uneven work sites. A 48 ft. Titan trailer, meanwhile, offers more than double the payload capacity – up to 130 cubic yards – while the self-unloading system maintains a sure footing for the trailer while it walks off the load.
The KEITH® WALKING FLOOR® system is a horizontal unloader, eliminating the need for tipping or dumping. Aluminum or steel slats run the length of the trailer floor. Actuated by three hydraulic cylinders, this sequence "walks" material out. Systems can be bi-directional for both loading and unloading product. With few moving parts, the systems are durable and are low maintenance.
