The Ford Transit Tipper is another addition to the most common van range in the UK. The inclusion of a tipper displays the versatility of the Ford Transit. Ideal for those who work in agriculture and construction; the tipper is built on the chassis of a Transit which makes for easy dumping of a load.
Robust and practical; the Ford Transit Tipper is built to handle all different kinds of payloads. You are able to control the hydraulically-powered system from the station located next to the driver’s seat. There is a side-mounted remote lever which easily controls both the top-hinged and ‘tip-thru’ functions. When the body is completely lowered, there is no need for an operator to secure it in place as the hydraulics automatically do this for you.
If you need to carry a crew around too, it is also possible to get the Ford Transit tipper in double cab.
Transit Tipper Conversions
With the Ford chassis cab, you can convert your Ford Transit into many different options suited to your needs. The Tipper in particular specialises in making unloading straightforward.
Just as you’d imagine a tipper; the 1-way option allows you to hydraulically raise the bed of your van to drop your load toward the rear of the vehicle.
Not only does the 3-way option allow you to tip to the rear, but it allows you to tip to either side of the vehicle, too. With the extra versatility this offers, this could be the ideal option for those who operate in restricted areas.
This shares the same bed as the tipper but doesn’t hydraulically lift. Should you not need a lifting bed, check out the Transit Dropside.
