Large Product Tipper

HawkeyePedershaab product tippers provide a safe and effective way for tipping large products. Traditionally products are tipped with cables, cranes or with forklift trucks. These methods can create potentially unsafe tipping practices especially with the large loads associated with the products that are being tipped. Additionally, the uncontrolled tipping of products can lead to increased product handling damage.

HawkeyePedershaab tippers are designed to tip the products under full hydraulic control. Products are quickly and safely tipped. Various tipper capacities and designs are available.

Features & Benefits

  • Reduces Products Breakage
  • Safe and Controlled Tipping of Large Products
  • Optional Trolley Feature


Optional Trolley Feature

After tipping the tipped product can be transported outdoors for direct pickup by a forklift truck.

Trolley equipped tippers enhance the handling of large products. The trolley feature permits the tipper to be in the plant under the overhead crane. Products can be conveniently transported to the tipper by overhead crane. Once tipped the tipper and tipped product are trolleyed outdoors for direct pick up with forklift truck and yarded.

Fork Truck-Mounted Torpedo Tipper

Torpedo tippers can tip two pipes at a time to quickly clear concrete pipe from the curing area.

Torpedo-type tippers are mounted to the end of the truck forks. The roller guided pivoting extensions initially hang vertically and are lowered into the top of the pipe barrel. After insertion the operator backs the fork truck and lowers the fork’s to tip the pipe. Once tipped the fork truck drives forward to insert the truck’s forks into the pipe for transport.

Fork Truck-Mounted Swivel Clamps

Swivel tippers are used with forklift trucks equipped with hydraulic fork positioners to clamp, carry and tip the pipe with minimal handling motions.

Swivel-type tippers are mounted to the end of the truck forks. Equipped with swivel bearings and rubber faced clamps the fork truck’s hydraulic fork positioners are actuated to squeeze the pipe for vertical transport. After transport the fork truck is backed up and the forks are lowered to safely tip the pipe.
