Please note: contrary to the illustrations, the tailgate in the revised version of this model is laid on the outside for easier opening and closing.
This halfpipe hooklift bin is the perfect choice for versatile use on the construction site - from lightweight bulk materials such as earth to massive quarry stones, innumerable transport scenarios are possible thanks to the extra reinforced steel construction! The model is made exactly in the scale of 1/14.5 and is made e.g. compatible with ScaleArt® hooklift systems.
The steel structure of the bin is based on real models. Particular emphasis was placed on the detailed reproduction of the frame components. In their nature, the frame is based on DIN 30722, according to the structures for hooklift equipement in the original are constructed. This version of the bin for hooklift vehicles is manufactured according to the rib-less design - therefore it does not require vertical reinforcing ribs on the side wall. The stability of the bin body is obtained by multiple folding of the one-piece body. Thanks to the superior strength properties of steel / stainless steel compared to many other materials used in model making, the sheet thicknesses can be scaled up to almost real thickness. All parts of this model are micro-welded by hand in Germany.
The tailgate has a mechanism for unlocking. Depending on the carrier vehicle an automatic unlocking of the tailgate is possible. As an optional extra, this bin can be equipped with deflector plates on both sides. These are welded directly to the main body. They can therefore neither be retrofitted nor removed.
