Diversified Metal Fabricators Inc.: ROTO 180 DMF Rotating Dump Body

Diversified Metal Fabricators Inc.

The DMF ROTO 180 is a rotating dump body that permits its user to deposit the contents of the bed anywhere within a 180 degree arc. Between the dump body and the truck chassis there is a hydraulically actuated sub-frame. It is a two-piece structure that joins the truck and dump body by means of a 43-inch industrial roller bearing. The sub-frame also houses multiple hydraulic cylinders and a custom designed manifold that controls the lift, swing, and tailgate release functions via an in-cab panel. The standard ROTO 180 is a 12-foot long, 10- to 12-cubic-yard dump body.
