The Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) has awarded the Eastern Region and National Product Innovation Award to Graham Lusty Trailers (GLT) for its new high volume side tipper.
Making its debut at the 2019 Brisbane Truck Show, the high volume side tipper is aimed directly at the waste transfer and high volume markets and leads the competition in tare weight, design and safety.
“We are very pleased to be recognised by the HVIA for our efforts in designing this trailer”, explains Graham Lusty, Chief Executive Officer of GLT. “Three separate companies have trialled our prototype trailer over the past four months with wood chip, green waste and general waste. Feedback has been extremely positive and now we are ready to launch into production”.
The HVIA panel of industry experts recognised the exceptional design where the centre of mass stays within the foot print of the wheel base through the tipping cycle while achieving a tipping angle of 47 degrees. The GLT design can give operators up to a 10% tare weight advantage over the competition.
