In perfect rotation

First published in Bolted #2 2013.

Customer: Laxo Mekan AB
Material: Steel
Model: Laxo Container Rotator
Diameter: 2.1 metres
Net weight: 300 kilos
Rotating load capacity: 15 tons

Since 1947, trucks from all large manufacturers such as Volvo, Scania and MAN find their way to Swedish truck body builder Laxo Mekan AB for customised chassis construction work. The company is known in Scandinavia for regularly introducing new trailer solutions, with the 2010 hydraulic driven container rotator being its most recent innovation. With a 360 degree rotation, the rotator makes it possible to load containers off a truck in the exact direction required, regardless of the truck’s position. This has made it especially popular in the waste management sector, which is characterised by limited space and cluttered construction sites.

The first rotators were fitted with washers supplied by Nord-Lock, but after changing its bolt supplier, Laxo was talked into using similar looking washers from another company. However, these copies were not able to secure the 31 bolts that keep the rotator attached to the boom of the truck. As the bolts loosened, the rotator detached from the truck. Laxo therefore decided to revert to the proven solution, this time fitting the rotator with Nord-Lock’s new X-series washers. Today, the copies are long gone – and so is the problem of bolt loosening.

I wouldn't think these would take off in this country. Maybe one or two. In specialist places. You can drag a skip on at 90 degrees .
Very useful bit of kit though.

Local guy had something like this some time ago, but rarely had to use it. Don't know whether Adrian still has it, or not. Also had a unit with just two telescopic arms - no cross bar and a hell of a reach!!

Did any go down this route of running a skip lorry as an all rounder?
Or decide how big of a machine you could fit between the lift arms?

Looks like a really neat idea to me

It does appear to be a neat enough idea. Would you have to add lashing points to the skip to tie the plant into it when transporting or how would vosa view it, they can have funnie ideas toward load securing at times.

Made a flat plate for friend down the road about 20 years ago to put his drott on
Worked fine
One thing it was an 18 tonner so was still high and you need to watch the balance when loaded as it will not load flat
Cheers
