A novel control system from Stone Hydraulics allows safe tipping on-site
Stone is offering a versatile remote control unit for use on tipping vehicles. Part of SPX Hydraulic Technologies, Stone says that the unit can be used on an array of utility vehicles. The operator can use the wireless remote control within a 25m radius, which is particularly where tipping has to be done in awkward places. The operator can control the tip from a safe vantage point to view the tipping area and possible height constructions. This wireless remote control operates using a code that prevents any interference and avoids any risk of tipping accidentally due to the action of another device. In addition, the control is locked so that it cannot be switched on unexpectedly. The transmitter and receiver are locked together by a unique code and can only operate as a single unit. The control can be installed easily and provides a large variety of options such as cab indicator.
