I'm not entirely sure what's happening here, but this seems like an awfully expensive way to do it
@Not him again, there's a Lays chip factory kind of near me an this how the unload potatoes from semi's. Idk if that's what's in this one but it's fairly common for loose goods shipping in containers
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, I figured they were unloading some sort of food product, it just seems like there's a less expensive and less dangerous way,
@Not him again, guy who thought this up... “fûck it! Just turn it upside down and shake everything out”
@Not him again, I work as a freight coordinator. Produce loads such as tomatoes, potatoes, etc are loaded into the trailer without pallets or wrapping. They unhook the trailer, set it upright and fill it to capacity, then close the doors and tilt it down and drive off. You can get more product on and off faster doing it that way then palletizing and stacking.
@Not him again, it's really not that dangerous. I e been up close to one and it's some super heavy duty hydraulics. It's simple and fast, talk about uploading a whole trailer in 2 minutes
@Not him again, I work at an aluminum plant and we get scrap aluminum for melting. We have a semi that tips just the trailers up like this. Its called a Callihan. Look it up, pretty cool/sketchy
@Sr5turbo, yeah I've seen dump bed trailers plenty before, which is why I don't really understand why this contraption is necessary. But I guess it makes sense somehow or the wouldn't do it. Too much weight that it would make them tip over? That's my only guess
@Not him again, this is actually much safer than a tilt trailer, As long as everyone is paying attention. Although it’s more practical for places that move massive quantities of goods. Not for places that get a truck a week.
@Not him again, the dumping truck has a set of outriggers with wheels that keep it from tipping. The reason for the tilt frames (I presume) is speed. A few min and the truck can drive away. With the Callihan, the trailer has to be detached, and reattached to the Callihan. Than back again. So if you need to dump into the same spot, like a hopper, the tilt frame would be much better.
Since when did Alabama get there own space program.
But we'd probably fix a bunch of their shjt.
Sure, send the rednecks. They'll fix NK. Fix Kim right up too. If you catch my drift. Speaking of drifting, hope Kim is as good at raft making as his bio says he is at golf. No reason in particular why.
Lemme just launch Optimus Prime at North Korea real quick
Is this a hotwheels launch Track?
