PHIL Sideboards help maximise truck volume and minimise spillage

Published by , Editor
Global Mining Review,

Off-highway trucks are designed to haul tonne-after-tonne of material throughout quarries, mines and traverse unpaved haul roads in the pursuit of building economies and infrastructure around the world. From time-to-time, the truck bodies on these trucks cannot contain the material they need to maximise efficiency.

PHIL Sideboards help maximise truck volume and minimise spillage

Whether the off-highway truck has a tailgate or not, the addition of PHIL Sideboards, designed by PHIL Systems, is useful in increasing the volumetric capacity of the truck body, and it assists in minimising material spillage over the body sides.

PHIL Sideboards are available in 1-in. increments from 9 in. to more than 40 in. for most makes and models of articulated haulers and rigid frame trucks.

To compete in a highly competitive rental market, a Caterpillar dealer recently came to Philippi-Hagenbuch to increase the volumetric capacity of their Cat 745 articulated dump truck by adding 9-in. sideboards. Installation was done at the PHIL factory, but can also be done at the dealership or at the client site. When paired with a tailgate, this set of sideboards increased the volumetric capacity of the truck by approximately 9 yd3 — almost 28% more room to haul whatever needs to be hauled by their rental client.
