|53°, 57° or 60° Single Tipping Ram|
Here in the UK cheaper twin ram systems are still fitted by most manufacturers, so what are the advantages of using a single ram?
The ram is mounted in the strongest part of the chassis; in-between the axles.
The single ram directly lifts the body upwards (as opposed to pushing the load backwards against the hinges). This makes the trailer safer as the force that the ram exerts to lift the body (and the force exerted against the hinges) is reduced.
The position and angle of the ram also means only 100 psi oil pressure per ton of lift is required.
Ram seals rarely need to be changed as the pressure required by the Larrington trailer/ram design is much lower, reducing wear.
Because of the unique design, Larrington Trailers tip quicker than any other tipping trailer we’ve seen.
Please note: Although the single ram’s position looks further back, its position under the body is often only 12" further back than conventional twin ram systems.
