Abstract:
This paper describes the development and manufacture of roll-off container handling systems for off-highway articulated trucks. This presentation reviews systems incorporating four unique products covering various roll-off container handling alternatives. The various components described and, depending on the style of the system, incorporated into a system are: 1. An off-highway truck “J”-Hook arrangement for picking roll-off containers up off of the ground and pulling them onto a haulage vehicle. 2. An automatic tailgate locking and opening system for roll-off containers vs. a manual vehicle driver dependent door/tailgate system. 3. A scissors lift for lifting roll-off containers to be dumped into various other vessels (railroad gondola cars, etc.). 4. A unique “J”-Hook interface for standard 20-ft. intermodal roll-off shipping containers so they can be hooked onto and handled with a “J”-Hook. Both the automatic locking/unlocking tailgate and the scissors lift are features which may or may not be incorporated in every unit. The equipment discussed in this paper opens new avenues for off-highway trucks in steel mills, landfills, quarries, etc.
