Bayne Premium Lift Systems says its ETL 208 series of hydraulic cart tippers provide 50 percent more ground clearance than similar models. As a result, they are less susceptible to damage when mounted on rear loaders being driven over uneven roads or at the landfill, according to the company. ETL 208 lifters pick up European-style carts.
The ETL 208 was designed so that the cart-support arm tucks up compactly at idle, positioning the lifter more than 20 inches above the ground. The ETL 208 also uses a sweeping action that automatically compensates for uneven terrain, Bayne says; the sweeping action also prevents operators from having to manually pick up and place carts onto the lifter.
Besides its additional ground clearance, the series also features a lift capacity of 375 pounds. A better clamping angle helps secure the cart when it’s tipped 45 degrees, reducing the chance of the cart breaking free before the 8- to 10-second lift cycle is complete, the company says. The ETL 208 also boasts a broader cart pick-up envelope designed to compensate for the two sizes of European carts.
Other attributes of an ETL 208, according to Bayne, are that it won’t interfere with the packer blade on most rear loader models, and its compact design matches well with commercial container lift bars. The ETL 208’s thin profile is designed to permit it to work in conjunction with commercial container latch kits, enabling one truck to pick up both residential and commercial refuse on the same route.
