The first time this trailer discharged a load we knew it was special. Designed specifically for the waste sector, the new patented GLT high volume side tipper is an engineering masterpiece.

The main point of difference with this unit is how the centre of gravity stays within the wheel track as the body opens to a tipping angle of 47 degrees. The stability of this design is impressive while averaging a cycle time of 30 seconds per unit.

The bodies can be customised to suit your application. A mixture of marine grade aluminium and hardox steel plate can be used in key areas to increase the longevity of the trailer. Our 70 cubic metre show trailer with a 10mm aluminium floor has a tare weight of 10.2 tonnes.

All GLT trailers are laser wheel aligned prior to delivery. The highest quality parts are sourced to manufacture each GLT unit. All nuts, bolts and washers are stainless steel. Hydraulic, electrical and air lines are well protected within the chassis.

GLT has designed this body to be highly customisable. Select from either lightweight aluminium or SAAB steel. Both material types can be optioned in a range of thicknesses.

Each different surface of the body can be optioned with different material types and thicknesses to suit your application. Floor sheets can be designed either flat for dry materials or bowled for wet materials such as general waste.

Both front and rear lifting mechanisms on the high volume side tipper are identical. All pivot bushes within the arms are made from oil impregnated nylon which are low maintenance and extremely durable.

Each chassis is 3D modelled and laser cut. All steel work is hand welded using Miller digital pulse machines by our highly skilled tradesmen.

The tipping pivots utilise a multi-link floating design which takes stress off the chassis and tub bodies. Special nylon pads are used where the body rests on the chassis.

All edges on flanges are sanded and polished to reduce the chances of cracking and to help paint adhere to the steel.

Trailer Options

Open Style

This option allows for unimpeded loading of the tub body. Top coamings can be custom made to handle abuse from rookie loader drivers.

Rollover with Pelmets

By far our most popular option. The tarp rolls up neat and tidy out of the way when loading. When unrolled, the tarp offers a high level of cover to protect your load.  Compared to the QLD style tarp, the roll over is easier for the operator to use, reducing OH&S risks. Side drop is 300mm standard and can be increased to 600mm. A full range of colours available. Razor electronic tarp upgrade available on this tarp.

Standard Retractable

These tarps retract forward to allow loading.  The tarp supports can range from 200mm to 350mm high.  Retractable tarps are not waterproof and leaking can occur.  A full range of colours are available. 

QLD Style

If you want the most water proof tarp option, tick this option. Tarps come standard with 300mm long flaps front and rear which are pull down tight to seal the front and rear of the tub. The side drop is standard at 600mm. This gives you a bit of extra room to roll over the heaped loads while still getting a tight seal along the side of the tub. A full range of colours are available.

Retractable with plate ends

These tarps retract forward to allow loading. The rear part of the tarp has a sliding aluminium pelmet.  The tarp supports can range from 200mm to 350mm high.  Retractable tarps are not waterproof and leaking can occur.  A full range of colours are available.  

Hooded

Custom designed in-house by our boffins, this system uses hydraulic cylinders to open and close the hoods. The structure is made from aluminium to reduce tare weight. This system has a fast opening time at 10 seconds flat. A full range of colours are available.

Tarp Support - Rolled Aluminium RHS

This is a popular option for operators wanting a tough alternative to Flexbows. These supports can be spaced at custom intervals. 

Tarp Support - Air Flip Over Bar

This air-operated tarp support can be operated from either the trailer via a push/pull switch or truck cabin controlled switches. The bar and centre pelmet is designed to be contamination free.

Mill Finish

This is our base level finish.  It's a natural granular finish and holds up pretty well to staining.
