tell the driver to hold the angle he's got. If and only if a portion of the payload hanges-up, should the driver be signaled to
continue hoisting the bed and discharge the hung payload. By keeping the angles of dump body hoisting only to that
necessary to dump the payload clean, a lot of instability of the CCE-IHC dump truck can be avoided. You've got a 50°
angle capability, but, if you only need 35 ° for a clean dump, don't spend the time increase the tip-over hazard by going
that extra 15°up to 50°. Stop at 35°and get back on your way to pick-up another load that much sooner.
Tip-Ove rs by Dumping on Tree-Lined Trails: Be very careful in any dumping operations performed near trees.
While dumping, interference of the cab protector and dump body with tree limbs can cause a side--ways force that can
result in tipping the truck over on its side or, if spreading, tipping backward onto the tailgate. With the dump body hoisted
high, very little force is needed to unbalance the truck both loaded and empty.
Hung Payloads in the Body: Wet payloads will often stick to the front and upper sides of the dump body, especially
if the heated body diverter valve is positioned to send the exhaust gases through the vertical muffler and stack pipe
instead of though the dump body. Any sizable amount of payload sticking to the front of a hoisted dump body is a
potential tip-over hazard. When the stuck payload is off to one side or the other, it is especially dangerous. Many tip-
overs occur when drivers attempt to dislodge the hung-up payload by throwing the truck in gear, accelerating forward, and
make a panic stop. This is intended to cause the tail gate to swing out and slam against the body and break loose the
hung-up payload. With the body high in the air, the jerks and jolts get the body and hang payload swaying and over
turning of the truck and the hung-up payload is likely. Even if, by luck, the truck doesn't tip-over, slamming of the tailgate
into the rear body posts results in cracked welds, bent and jammed tailgate rods and catches, deformed body posts, and
deformed tailgates. Don't slam tailgates. Tipping the truck over on its side is an improper and costly way of dumping
stuck payloads. If the payload won't easily slide out at the 50° dump angle-, you must lower the bed to the frame, get into
the bed, and loosen-up the payload with a hand-operated shovel. Then, try dumping again. When hauling material s that
are wet and have a tendency to stick to the body, flip your engine exhaust diverter valve to the body heat position and
leave it there (wire it in place, if your over-center spring is weak). The exhaust gas heat warms the metal surface of the
body so that wet material next to the dump body metal has a chance to dry out and won't stick to the dump body while
dumping. For the prevention of tip-overs, using the heated body is good insurance in all climates and weather-cold
region, temperate, and tropical.
