For many years, MEILLER has been serving its customers in construction and waste management logistics with modern roll-off tipper systems, having established them as firm leader in both market and technology for over 20 years. This market segment is forever growing and requires ever more modern solutions, offering a more efficient operation like the new MEILLER RS21 roll-off tipper equipped with an entire package of progressive and intelligent detailed solutions. The fastest in its class, it offers a larger payload and sets new safety standards.
The RS 21, the number reflecting its 21 tonne lifting force, takes over from its RK 20 predecessor. Top marks in terms of tare weight, overall height and working speed are the results of all-round improvements. MEILLER Product Manager Michael Eicheldinger sums up the essential advantages: “Our new MEILLER RS 21 roll-off tipper is lighter, lower and more efficient.”
In comparison to its predecessor, the weight has been reduced by up to 200 kg, adding to the available payload and improving fuel consumption. The RS 21 has been consistently lowered – as opposed to tuning cars, however, this is done with economic benefits in mind. It enables taller containers to be loaded, without exceeding legal limits, an advantage in terms of restricted clearance heights and when it comes to high-volume transport. At the same time the height of the vehicle’s point of gravity is reduced, improving driving characteristics and benefiting driving safety. The new frame with closed profiles is unique among the competition; it offers extremely high torsion stiffness and is mounted weld-free with bolt technology, which means it does not affect the original vehicle manufacturer’s serial corrosion protection.
A special argument in favour of the new MEILLER RS 21 is its working speed. In certain work sequences, it has doubled, making the RS 21 the fastest among the competition, when looking at the entire working cycle. The new high speed valve means containers can not only be lifted more quickly, but they will also be lowered more quickly, once the tipping process has been completed. The system is always in operation, is fully automated and works load-dependent, thus preventing any kind of operating errors. In order to protect the vehicle, the containers are positioned with a hydraulic limit stop damping. The rear under-ride guard is also positioned hydraulically. Its scissors-like extension and retraction makes it insensitive to dirt or damage.
