Stability for long bodies and large loads

20160902_125416-300

Stabilising NUMMI front tipping cylinders have been designed not only for lifting but also for giving stability during tipping. For this reason, they are well suited for vehicles with long bodies or tipping semitrailers.

Maximizing front axle payload

In the NUMMI JTC and JTD models, the cylinder is attached to the body with lifting arms which absorb vibrations during transport and allow the flex between the body and the chassis. Because of this attachment method only a small space is needed for the tipping cylinder between the cab and the body. This allows the body to be brought further forward to fully utilise the front axle capacity. The difference between the JTC and JTD models is the type of the attachment on the bottom end.

The NUMMI DFC model is equipped with a cover tube with which it is attached to the body. The cover tube prevents inpurities entering the cylinder during driving. The DFC model is suitable for long bodies and large loads. The patented cover tube construction and the long overlaps of the cylinder tubes provide a stabilising effect during the tipping.


The NUMMI DFE cylinder is attached from the top directly to the front wall of the body and the front wall needs to be sloped. This attachment method enables the tipping cylinder to be lightweight, giving maximizing payloads. The DFE model has the similar cylinder tubes as the DFC model so it is also suitable for heavy-duty work which requires increased stability.
