Tipping chassis

Van Hool’s tipping container chassis is a proven system that is available in various lengths ranging from 20 feet to 40 feet.

Van Hool developed the extendable container chassis for optimal weight distribution when transporting 20' containers. It is the ideal solution for tipping with the container positioned at the rear and driving along with the container placed centrally, so that weight distribution on the chassis is ideal at all times.

The tipping container chassis, which tips up to 90°, has been totally renewed and now places your (box) container in a vertical position. Ideal for loading granulates, scrap and other materials. Van Hool collaborated on this with the Dutch company Van Zandwijk, the leading specialist and pioneer in innovative and reliable yet lightweight tipping systems.

Exported to Africa and throughout Europe, Van Hool’s tipping chassis is extremely reliable and the experience behind the design makes it ideal for your business.

The chassis is also fitted with:

  • tipping cylinder
  • rear support feet (mandatory from 30 ')
  • room for discharge lock, or with discharge lock
  • ...

Numerous optional extras are also available and it is of course possible to customize your tipping chassis so that it fits your needs perfectly.

Eco-combi

Van Hool is ready for Eco-Combi's

In recent weeks, EcoCombis, EuroCombis, LHVs (Longer Heavier Vehicles) or supertrucks have been front-page news in the specialist road transport press. These are combinations of trucks with a maximum length of 25.25 metres and a maximum weight of 60 tonnes, authorised to carry goods on a limited number of previously defined routes.Denemarken en Nederland: succes!

Denmark and The Netherlands: Success on all grounds!

Denmark and the Netherlands are forerunners and already have sound experience in this area. In Denmark, a pilot project was launched in 2008 and the results are particularly conclusive. It was shown that two EcoCombis ultimately replace three standard truck combinations. And the advantages are twofold: transport costs decrease and CO2 emissions are reduced. Safety-related results together with the impact on the road infrastructure and environment are also very positive. Calculations by the Danish Ministry of Transport show that a reduction in CO2 emissions of up to 15% is possible in the case where two EcoCombis replace three standard trucks. The Danes also came to the conclusion that there was no significant wear effect on road infrastructure.

 

The customer: very satisfied!

In the Netherlands, Van Hool already has good experience with EcoCombis and in particular at Van der Wal hauliers in Utrecht. When you ask Stan van der Leeuw, fleet manager at Van der Wal, what he really thinks about EcoCombis, Stan replies without a moment’s hesitation: “We are delighted with them”. We opted for that type of transport in 2006-2007, after a successful trial period. Since then, thirty Van Hool EcoCombis have been crisscrossing the Netherlands from north to south and east to west without the slightest problem. The EcoCombis have therefore covered millions of miles on minor roads, major roads and motorways as far as the country’s different industrial estates. We utilise two possibilities: truck – dolly - semi-trailer and tractor - semi-trailer - trailer.”
In the Netherlands, the EcoCombi system is in widespread use today and has definitively become a recognised transport mode since 1 November 2011.

Van Hool is indisputably ready for EcoCombis and proposes different combinations. Through its great flexibility, Van Hool is also able to meet specific needs and requirements from different markets and from different road haulage contractors.
