MEILLER TIPPER TRUCKS

MEILLER TIPPER TRUCKS

Meiller GmbH, a family run business with a 160-year history, has constantly developed its range of services and expertise, becoming the market leader as a system provider in construction, waste management and the commercial vehicle industry.

The production and delivery programme includes rear tippers, tipping semi trailers, skip handlers, roll-off tippers, rock tipper, asphalt tipper and trailers for transport of containers.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Lorenz Meiller had already established himself as a blacksmith and owned three smithies in Germany, when he founded MEILLER in 1850. His hammer mill and armoury in Munich was approved on June 1, 1853 by the local building commission of the city of Munich.

Within a few years, the company was supplying forged construction equipment and winches to the forestry and construction industry and with the production in 1907 of the first body for a winched tipper on a truck, the foundation was laid for MEILLER as a tipper manufacturer.

UNIQUE FEATURES

Meiller uses high pressure hydraulics – 280 bar, as opposed to the conventional 150 bar, thereby giving higher lifting force for the same cylinder diameter. Other benefits include:

  • Scissor tipping stabilizer giving additional stability when tipping
  • Maximum transport volume through low tare weight
  • High tipping & lowering speeds through innovative hydraulics and better opening angle for faster turnarounds
  • Reduced design height for low center of gravity
  • Reliable, insensitive and maintenance free operation (6 years for hose lines)

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Meiller has launched the new generation of roll-off tippers in the highest volume segment for three-axle truck chassis with a permissible gross vehicle weight of 26 ton.
