Preparation work before operation

Check if all components of the tipper trailer are intact, including tires, braking system, hydraulic system, electrical system, etc.

Ensure that the connection between the towing vehicle of the tipper trailer and the semi-trailer is reliable, the towing hook is locked, the safety pin is inserted properly, and the supporting legs are retracted.

Check if there is any oil leakage in the hydraulic lifting system of the tipper trailer and confirm that the hydraulic oil level is normal.

Conduct a no-load test run on the tipper trailer to check whether the lifting mechanism operates smoothly and whether all control devices are sensitive and effective.

Choose a suitable unloading location based on the characteristics of the transported materials, ensuring that the unloading ground is flat, solid, and not easy to cause vehicle rollover.

Operation method

Park the tipper trailer steadily in the unloading area, ensuring that the vehicle is level, tighten the handbrake to ensure vehicle stability.

Choose the appropriate unloading side according to your needs. Some tipper trailer can unload backwards, while others can unload sideways.

Start the hydraulic lifting system of the tipper trailer, operate the lifting rod of the hydraulic system, and slowly lift the carriage.

During the lifting process of the carriage, pay close attention to the stability of the vehicle. If there are any abnormalities, stop lifting immediately and check the cause.

When the goods start to slide, maintain a stable lifting speed of the carriage to avoid vehicle shaking caused by sudden sliding of the goods.

After the goods are completely unloaded, slowly lower the carriage to ensure a smooth landing.

Finally, check if there are any residual materials in the carriage, clean it thoroughly before fully resetting the carriage.

Matters Needing Attention

When operating a tipper trailer, the operator should stand in a safe area and avoid standing in areas where the carriage may slide due to tilting.

When unloading, there should be no unrelated personnel staying around to prevent danger from occurring.

It is not allowed to unload goods while the vehicle is in motion.

Avoid unloading in bad weather conditions, such as strong wind, rainstorm, ice and snow, which may affect the stability of the vehicle.

Do not overload the use of tipper trailer. Overloading not only damages the vehicle, but may also cause instability and safety hazards during unloading.

During the uninstallation process, if any abnormal situations are found, the operation should be stopped immediately and checked and dealt with in a timely manner.


Regularly inspect and maintain the various components of the tipper trailer, especially the hydraulic and braking systems, to ensure their good operation.

Check the quality and level of hydraulic oil, and replace it in a timely manner if necessary.

Keep the vehicle clean, especially the hydraulic lifting mechanism, to prevent impurities such as mud and sand from affecting normal use.

Check the wear of the tires to ensure that the tire pressure is moderate. If the tire is excessively worn, it should be replaced in a timely manner.

Keep the electrical system clean and in good condition, regularly check whether the wiring and connections are firm, and avoid accidents caused by electrical faults.
