A-Ward’s unique MiTiltTM unloader eliminates the need for scarce and expensive tilting trailers. Whether your material is being unloaded through a grate, over an edge, or directly in the ground, the MiTiltTM enables faster, cleaner and safer unloading.

How it works:

The MiTiltTM unloader tilts up to a maximum unloading angle of 70 degree, with a 90 degree option available if required. They work in a similar way as our MiTiltTM loaders – find out more here.

It’s ideal for:

  • Unloading a range of materials directly into your storage system, at the speed you want.
  • Contamination-free unloading of sensitive or hazardous materials.

RAISED TILTING UNLOADERS

Want to avoid the cost and hassle of building a below-ground hopper or storage system? A-Ward offers two unloader models specifically designed to unload into above-ground systems. They allow you raise the open end of the container above the ground during tilting, for greater ground clearance.

A-Ward Raise & Tilt

How it works:

It works in a similar way to the Tilt & Raise, except this unit raises to a set height before tilting secondly. You set the desired height of your fixed tilting point.

It’s ideal for:

  • Plants that have an existing above-ground hopper (and want to avoid the cost of building an underground system).
  • Unloading at any set heights above ground.
  • When the operator requires a clear space to open the container doors and prepared opening before it moves towards the unloading position.

TILT AND RAISE UNLOADERS

Want to avoid the cost and hassle of building a below-ground hopper or storage system? A-Ward offers two unloader models specifically designed to unload into above-ground systems. They allow you raise the open end of the container above the ground during tilting, for greater ground clearance.

A-Ward Tilt & Raise

How it works:

It allows you to lift your lower container edge up to 1.5m-2m, for tipping into the area below. This unit tilts as it is being raised up, so will usually have some kind of transfer system connected to it.

It is ideal for:

  • Connection to fixed above ground transferring system prior to container tipping.
  • Including an unloading hopper as part of the A-Ward tilt frame.
  • Unloading material at a raise position above the ground.
