Back again: The Schmitz Cargobull Z.KI three-sided central axle tipper 
Z.KI Hollow


September 2020 - The Z.KI central axle tipper trailer is smallest of the tipper trailers. In response to numerous requests, Schmitz Cargobull has redesigned the Z.KI as a three-sided tipper with aboud 10 m³ loading volume and included it in the product portfolio once again.

Flexibility: pallet-width design
60 kg lighter than previous model 

In particular, the robust trailer is distinguished by its versatility, flexibility, easy operation and optimum manoeuvrability thanks to its central axle design. The new three-way tipper is available as standard in a pallet-width version, providing a flexible solution for all transport tasks on the construction site. Its unladen weight has been reduced by approximately 60 kg in comparison to its predecessor. This provides the transporter with more payload.

Pendulum-mounted rear and side walls allow the Z.Kl to be unloaded conveniently and easily from three sides and in confined spaces. The 900 mm high steel dropsides enable a loading volume of approx.10 m³. The raised hinges on the tailgate provide a larger pouring opening. Lashing points in the floor of the body are available as an option and enable the safe transport of general cargo and small construction machines. 

Schmitz Cargobull also offers customers a supporting lifting spring mechanism for the wear-resistant steel dropsides as an option. This makes it easier to fold up the dropside after the unloading.
