What are Autolocking Telehandler Skips?
a Telehandler skip with the auto-locking mechanism device fitted is the revolutionary step forward in safety onsite. If you are moving materials or waste around an construction site using a telehandler, then our autolock skip is aimed at you. Once the auto locking skip has been lifted from the floor, the rear heel pins are activated and the skip is now secure and locked onto the forks - No need for safety chain like standard tipping skips.
How does the autolocking mechanism work on a telehandler skip ?
The auto locking telehandler skips, have a floating fork heels fitted that is supported by a gas strut mechanism, standard tipping skips use safety restraint chain to help lock the skip in place. when the cab driver of the telehandler drives into the fork pockets, the heel pins that are fitted at the back of Teleskip will lock at the rear of the telehandler fork tines, when the skip is raised off the floor, the gas strut mechanism becomes active and helps the floating heels lock the forks securely in place on the skip. The skip is fully secure and safe. it can be lifted and tilted with the driver having the confidence the skip will stay safe on the telehandler.
What are the advantages of using a telehandler skip with auto locks?
the main onsite advantage of a telehandler skip with autolocking mechanism is safety, Driver does not leave his seat to add an additional safety chain for securing the skip to the telehandler. the other safety advantages being that the skip is 100 percent securely attached to the telehandler, does not matter if lifted and tilted, it is staying on.
Less Wear as no tipping handle or tilting mechanisms - a standard tipping skip requires the handle to be activated by hand to tip the bucket forward, no need with the securely fitted telehandler tip. Just drive up to the unloading area and position the skip. now just use the tipping button inside the cab, the skip remans in secure position all the time.
Another advantage is the saving of time - again, due to the autolocking mechanism, the driver does not need to get out of cab and attach the safety chains. he just drives up, locates through the fork pockets and activates the heel locking mechanism when he lifts up from the ground.
