Dump Trailer Rolls Over

Although set up for the camera, this is a great example of how tipping trailers can overturn on un-level ground and the damage it can cause. A tipper can become unstable and overturn when tipping on a cross slope as low as 5º. There are many factors that can contribute to a tipper overturn, these include poor maintenance of the chassis and suspension, not tipping with the tractor and trailer in line, load sticking on one side of the body, uneven or overloading and strong cross winds. However, the number one factor in tipper rollovers is tipping on and incline or on soft ground that cause the trailer to sink in and lean. All these accidents are preventable by carefully following tipping safety guidelines and installing a TS Inclinometer system.
