Dump Truck Equipped With Hydraulic Push-Off
Here is a dump truck that's really not even a dump truck. It's a transport that unloads without being elevated by pushing off the load with a hydraulic discharge system.
Called Ram-E-Jec, it could find some uses on farms and ranches. It can unload inside buildings and tight places with low hanging obstructions, and it can meter materials for accurate discharge. The horizontal hydraulic ram gives positive unloading without the problems of bridging or sticking common to gravity flow or conveyor delivery.
"Ram-E-Jec could be used for moving and feeding silage or grain. It works positively for problem materials, such as extremely wet grain or silage," the manufacturer points out.
Built with a low center of gravity, Ram-E-Jec performs efficiently on steep grades or uneven ground. The manufacturer makes it in both straight truck and trailer models.
Straight truck boxes are 20 ft. long with 44-in. or 60-in. sides, with capacity of 18.3 or 20 cubic yards. Trailers range in length from 21 to 28 ft. and capacities of 19 to 30 cu. yards.
Truck units cost about $12,000 and trailer prices range from $20,000 to $28,000. All trailers are equipped with FMVSS-121 brakes. Optional Equipment available includes automatic tailgate, barn door tailgate, third axle, alternate susspension and insulated sides.
