HawkeyePedershaab large pipe tipper

Concrete product tippers provide a safe and effective way to tip products as opposed to traditional methods that rely on cables, cranes or forklift trucks. These methods can create potentially unsafe tipping practices, especially with large loads. Additionally, the uncontrolled tipping of concrete products can lead to increased product handling damage.  Afinitas’ HawkeyePedershaab brand offers tipping equipment for:

                  • Large product tippers
                  • Fork truck-mounted torpedo tipper
                  • Fork truck-mounted swivel tipper

Concrete Pipe Tipper Options

HawkeyePedershaabe large pipe tipper

Large Product Tipper

HawkeyePedershaab concrete product tippers are designed to tip the products under full hydraulic control. Products are quickly and safely tipped. Various tipper capacities and designs are available.

  • Reduces concrete product breakage
  • Safe and controlled tipping of large products

Optional Trolley Feature

After tipping, the tipped product can be transported outdoors for direct pickup by a forklift truck. Trolley-equipped tippers enhance the handling of large concrete products. The trolley feature permits the tipper to be in the plant, under the overhead crane. Products can be conveniently transported to the tipper by overhead crane. Once tipped, the tipper and tipped concrete product are trolleyed outdoors for direct pickup with a forklift truck and yarded.

Fork Truck-Mounted Torpedo Tipper

Torpedo tippers can tip two concrete pipes at a time to quickly clear pipe from the curing area. The tippers are mounted to the end of the truck forks. The roller-guided pivoting extensions initially hang vertically and are lowered into the top of the pipe barrel. After insertion, the operator backs the fork truck and lowers the fork’s to tip the pipe. Once tipped, the fork truck drives forward to insert the truck’s forks into the pipe for transport.

Fork Truck-Mounted Swivel Tipper

Swivel tippers are used with forklift trucks equipped with hydraulic fork positioners to clamp, carry, and tip the  concrete pipe with minimal handling motions.

Swivel-type tippers are mounted to the end of the truck forks. Equipped with swivel bearings and rubber-faced clamps, the fork truck’s hydraulic fork positioners are actuated to squeeze the pipe for vertical transport. After transport, the fork truck is backed up and the forks are lowered to safely tip the pipe.
