Safety procedures when tipping

Plan a gap from 20 to 30mm.

Ensure that:

The necessary tipping pressure is less than the maximum recommended operating pressure

The load is compatible with the vehicle.

The ground is stable and flat.

There are no people or obstacles in the working perimeter (at ground level and high up).

The load has been distributed uniformly

The tyre pressure is correct.

The load is progressively emptied.

PAY ATTENTION to loads sticking in the body
(wet earth, etc.). Strong adhesion to the body may cause the vehicle to tip over.


Move the vehicle during tipping.

Rapid operation of the cylinder tipper control.

Working under a raised tipper body that has not been secured.

Tipping if the wind is buffeting the vehicle.

«Not following the above safety procedures may cause considerable over-pressures and transverse forces that are not allowed by the cylinder. This may therefore cause considerable damage and place the operator in danger».


The study, the conception and the technical specifications are only suitable for tippers.

– Rod: compact polyurethane lip seal + 1 polyurethane wiper seal
– Cylinder bottom: O RING 80 shore + back up ring or static seal


– Protect the hydraulic circuit by a relief valve and a filter.
– Check the state of purity of the fluid (foreign bodies).
– Remember to purge the cylinders and the hydraulic circuit.
– Do not weld onto the cylinder.
– Do not, under any circumstances, use the tipping system as a mechanical stop.
– Never allow the body to lean against the cylinder when in stowed position (gap > 20mm).


– The cylinder rod must be greased before being stored.
– Protect the cylinder shaft and trunnions during high pressure steam cleaning.


– Joint pockets

The normal operation of a telescopic cylinder consists in the regular lifting of a tipper body to progressively empty its load over its path, while respecting the operating and safety conditions.
A tipping system is solely a lifting device, it cannot, under any circumstances, stabilise or guide the tipper body.
On choosing a cylinder, the weight C is equal to the weight of the body added to the weight of the load.
