Adaptable
to any make and model of articulated off-highway truck as well as a number of
rigid frame trucks, PHIL Rear Eject Bodies curtail the challenges
associated with traditional dump bodies. They eliminate the need to raise the
body of the truck, allowing for safe dumping of materials while in motion and
in the presence of overhead barriers. This operation increases efficiency
without reducing stability by providing a lower center of gravity and allowing
dumping on downhill slopes and conditions with a soft footing; enabling trucks
to spread material while driving further enhances efficiency.  The
ability to effectively empty the truck without raising the
body augments safety where overhead barriers such as power lines, roof
lines or bridges may pose as forgotten safety risks as well as in
underground mining applications that have low overhead clearance.

 

Engineered
to provide productivity enhancing solutions for the toughest hauling
challenges, PHIL Rear Eject Bodies dump faster and easier – even in
sticky applications. Without moving or raising the truck bed, the ejector blade
pushes material toward the rear of the truck, while the tailgate lowers down
and material is completely ejected.  The sweeping action of the blade
virtually eliminates all material – even that material prone to
sticking to the sides or floor of the truck bed. This dumping action provides
for more dumps in less time significantly increasing jobsite productivity.

 

PHIL Rear
Eject Bodies are also versatile enough to be used as auxiliary feeders within
quarries and mines, providing an alternative tool for delivering material to a
crusher or asphalt plant if a primary feeder malfunctions or breaks down. 

 

PHIL Rear
Eject Bodies are constructed with a single hydraulic cylinder used to operate
both the ejector blade and the rear tailgate mechanism.  As the
ejector blade moves to the rear of the body, the tailgate mechanism located in
the sides of the body begins to move to the rear of the truck. This motion,
naturally supplemented with gravitational forces, lowers the tailgate simply
and mechanically without the need for additional hydraulic cylinders. To
further simplify the design, PHIL ejector bodies employ exclusive ejector
guides integrated into the inside of the body, which provide smooth
operation, while eliminating rollers that typically break or bind.
Additionally, the bodies are constructed of high strength, abrasion-resistant
steel to withstand years of use with little maintenance.

 

Because
there are no external rails or guides for the ejector to move on, the Rear
Eject Bodies provide enhanced ease of loading and increased capacity.
Incorporating customer feedback and more than two decades of experience,
Philippi-Hagenbuch eliminated all grease points with the exception of
one – only requiring lubrication once a year.
