HENSCHEL ENGINEERING AUTOMOTIVE produces tippers made of steel and aluminum for mounting on vehicles up to 5,0 tons.

The galvanized steel sub-frame is made of longitudinal bearers, front and rear members and the cross member for the actuator. The substructure is reinforced with steel profiles and attached to the hydraulic unit. The mounting brackets to connect the sub- frame to the chassis are welded to the longitudinal bearers. Brackets for the fenders are included, fenders can be ordered as an option.


The tipper platform is a galvanized welded steel construction with longitudinal and cross bearers and the connection for the hydraulic cylinder. The floor is made of wear-resistant steel of 2.5mm thickness with integrated, according VGB, required load securing eyelets. Front and side boards are made of anodized aluminum profiles, 400 mm high and 25 mm thick. The side boards can fold down, the rear board can hinge along top and bottom edge and has a manual locking gear. Optionally, a cabin protection with an integrated ladder rack is available. Securing eyelets to secure the load in compliance with VGB regulations (75410-1 or EN 12640) are integrated in the tipper body.

Hydraulics and operation

The tipper is equipped with an electro-hydraulic unit, with a built- in oil tank. The capacity depends on the tipper model. The high chromed cylinder is delivered – according to the type of structure – with 4, 5, or 6 strokes. A safety device to prevent over tilting to the side (about 45 degrees) is built-in. The tipper is operated by a remote control, which has to be mounted and installed in the vehicle cabin. The connectors are enclosed in the accessory kit. The main power leads (35 mm²) are included.
