Tipper trailer under five tonnes from Schmitz

Schmitz Cargobull AG, which says that it senses a clear recovery in the trailer market is using the IAA Show at Hannover to launch a lightweight tipping trailer.  The S.KI steel X-Light, with a rounded steel body weighs 4.92 tonnes and with an aluminium body, 4.46t.  Schmitz says the 24 m3 will prove tough and well able to cope with the rough and tumble of tipper operations.  Schmitz said it has built as many vehicles in the first half of 2010 and did in the whole of its 2009/2010 business year.  It has also just returned to two-shift working at its Altenberge.
