Conical in series since 2010
In independent comparative tests, Fliegl tipper trailers have proven time and again that they are particularly stable and tilt-resistant. Dump deflection and torsion score with top values. Already in 2008, Fliegl put a special tipper test bench into operation. In 2010, Fliegl defined conically shaped dump bodies as standard. Bulk material slides out of the cone, which becomes wider towards the rear, quickly and without residue, abrasion on the inside of the body is reduced. Fliegl's conical body has been awarded the European Transport Prize for sustainability several times.
A comprehensive aerodynamic package with special air deflectors and with Fliegl membrane rear wall (with double-jointed hinge) also reduces air resistance. Fliegl adjusts every single axle with the help of precision lasers. This individual measurement guarantees less rolling resistance, fuel consumption and tyre wear a measurable added value Fliegl exclusive.
For the chassis, Fliegl relies on the hardest steels, combined with consistent intelligent lightweight construction. Greenlight lightweight steel chassis weigh and cost less than comparable aluminium frames. Greenlight tipper trailers achieve top values for empty weight and payload and reduce operating costs.
The curved frame front of the Fliegl Greenlight tipper trailer is striking, without corners and edges. It saves weight for the benefit of the payload and stabilises the frame, as vertically acting forces are optimally bundled and transferred to the fifth wheel plate. On the underside of the Curved Chassis is a steel deflector that simplifies coupling and prevents damage. The rounded shape also simplifies manoeuvring, as there is more freedom of movement for the tractor without corner surfaces.
The standing platform at the front of the Fliegl tipper trailer is bolted directly to the sleeve of the tipping cylinder. This reduces the overall height of the vehicle when the body is tipped, which is particularly useful in tunnels, underpasses, under bridges or in halls. The connection lines do not protrude into the tipping angle and cannot be damaged during tipping. Only Fliegl positions the connections so that the driver can reach them without crawling under the vehicle.

Holistic sustainability: Fliegl tipper trailers reduce fuel consumption by approx. 10%. They reduce pollutant emissions and are characterised by low life cycle costs.
