The 115t Tilting Low loader is a rear-loading heavy equipment low loader. The rear loading is achieved by inclining the rear deck to form a 7 degree ramp for the loading of equipment. The inclination of the deck is via a hydraulic cylinder operating a parallelogram link tow hitch. For loading and unloading, the tilting motion is controlled via either a remote control unit or a pendant controller. Either control unit allows the operator to control the unit from a safe location.
The towing vehicle shown in this case is a Caterpillar 785 mining truck. A Cat 777 or other truck can also be used depending on the site conditions. The complete loading process can be a one man operation taking less than 5 minutes, with no need for any ramp other than that formed by the structure.
