The Chieftain 44 ton gross half-pipe tipping trailer with Hardox® steel body is specially designed to transport rock and quarry aggregates. Hardox is an extra high strength durable steel wear plate developed by SSAB Oxelösund. It is lower in weight and more durable than ordinary mild steel hence its suitability to be the specified steel wear plate used to fabricate this rock and quarry aggregate trailer. Chieftain is a registered member of HIMB “Hardox in my body” therefore all of Chieftain’s designs for the use of Hardox have been approved by SSAB. (Please see Chieftain’s HIMB certificate for details.)
The lightweight Chieftain Hardox® half-pipe tipping trailer also offers significant improvements to efficiency by way of increased payloads as it can transport an additional 9 tonnes compared with the 32 tonne 8 wheeler tipper trucks.
Also available in the range of Hardox® half-pipe trailers is a 2 axle model of this type and a half-pipe model with an insulated/covered body for the transportation of hotmix (tarmacadam).
