This half-pipe bin is the perfect choice for tough construction site applications - from light bulk materials such as earth to massive stones - thanks to the extra-reinforced steel construction countless transport scenarios are possible! The model is compatible with hooklift systems available on the market. The bin is available in two sizes - 1/ ScaleArt® or 1/Tamiya ®. The width of the carrier vehicle is decisive here.
The steel construction of the bin is modeled on real models. Particular emphasis was placed on the detailed representation of the frame components. In its design, the main frame is based on DIN 30722, according to which such bins for hookloader vehicles are designed in the original. This version of the bin for hookloader vehicles is manufactured according to a halfpipe design. It does not need reinforcing ribs on the side wall. The stability is ensured by the multi-fold bending of the one-part steel sheet that forms the main bin. Thanks to the superior strength properties of steel - compared to many other materials used in model building - the sheet thicknesses can be scaled almost real. All parts of this model are welded. The last optical touch is achieved by a virtually indestructible powder coating.
The tailgate has a mechanism for unlocking. Depending on the carrier vehicle / hookloader system, an automatic unlocking of the tailgate is thus possible. We would be pleased to adapt the mechanism of the tailgate release mechanism free of charge to the current manufacturer of hookloader systems, if the manufacturer is not already listed in the selection field.
The images show a computer animation of the later model, which possibly contains special equipment. Minor changes of the design are possible. The introductory price only applies to orders which are paid directly and in full. The model is expected to be delivered in Q4 2017.
