Tipper Wagon Features Both Side, Rear DumpingOne 4-stage cylinder controls the action on the new all-purpose "Tipper" wagon from Wittwer Mfg. that dumps grain, forage, manure, logs or other material to the side, or to the rear.
To switch from side to rear dumping, or vice versa, you simply switch two pins. The 4-stage cylinder on the largest-available 12 ton capacity model is 5.5 in. in dia., extends to a maximum length of 68 in., and telescopes to 24 in., making is short enough to tuck neatly under the frame without sacrificing ground clearance.
"The side dumping feature is especially handy' for unloading inside buildings with limited headroom," notes inventor-manufacturer Peter Wittwer.
Available in trailer or thick-mounted 6, 10 and 12 ton capacity models, all factory-equipped with steel boxes hinged for both side and end unloading. The box on the largest 12 ton model is 15 ft. long, 7.5 ft. wide and 52 in. high. It retails for $5,500 (Canadian). Soon to come is a "Tipper" box for pickups equipped for both side and end dumping.
