Cemex lightens up with Hyva super-light tipping cylinders03 March 2016
Aggregates business Cemex has taken delivery of 11 eight-wheelers fitted with Hyva’s super-light FCA129 tipping cylinders – allowing each vehicle to achieve a full 20-tonne payload.
Cemex national fleet engineer Paul Clarke says the business asked Hyva what it could offer over its existing tipping cylinder choice: “We’ve got a firm answer – a weight saving of some 20kg. Not a huge amount perhaps, but who wants to carry around unnecessary deadweight?”
The FCA129 weighs 430kg and has been engineered specifically for aggregate operators using 32-tonne 8x4 tippers – it is not a scaled up version from a lighter vehicle category.
Key to its light weight is a separate tank and ram design, which allows the non-load bearing oil tank to be made from industrial-grade plastic instead of steel.
In addition to the 11 rigids, Cemex has also extended its 200-strong tipper fleet with nine tipping trailers, each fitted with Hyva FC169 tipping cylinders.
