The Hi-Swivel concept combines the advantages of the powerswivel, being able to rotate the skip through 180° to left or right, with the ability to raise the skip to a maximum load over height of 1995 mm.

Powered by Yanmar 45 bhp four-cylinder water-cooled direct-injection diesel.

Totally enclosed multiplate oil-immersed discs mounted on rear axle effective on all four wheels. Automatic adjustment for wear. Hand-operated parking brake. Heavy-duty axles with epicyclic reduction and fully floating halfshafts. Reduction gearbox integral with rear axle differential housing.

Front and rear chassis constructed from deep section folded steel plate, with three-point Kinglink giving centre articulation and oscillation for better stability and traction, coupled with tight turning circle for outstanding manoevrability. Remote greasing point provided for lubrication of top Kinglink articulation pin.

Hydraulically operated, 5 mm steel plate all round, fully welded, mouth and sides of skip reinforced with box sections to minimise
skip damage. Variable tipping height by means of a scissor lift. Two-lever control: one to raise and lower the scissor mechanism; the other, a dual-axis lever for rotating the skip through 180° and for discharging the load.

Adjustable suspension seat, accessible from both sides. Audible warning device at key start ‘on’ position. Electric horn. Superbright warning lights for all critical functions. Large pedal pads, with handbrake and hydraulic controls ready to hand.

Hydraulic power steering. Return line filtration for all services and large capacity suction strainer in the tank to give full circuit protection. Hydraulic test point fitted as standard.
