Uhlenberg Haulage: Tipulator Monday, May 20, 2013

Uhlenberg haulage are located in Eltham, about 45 minutes south of New Plymouth, a typical rural New Zealand town.  Uhlenberg Haulage was founded in 1966 by Mike & Carol Uhlenberg, doing a lot of work in those days for the Ministry of Works on Northern Taranaki roading.

Chris, Daryl and Tony run the business these days and with a fleet of, predominantly, Peterbilt trucks and tractor units that are easily recognizable with their distinctive green with white livery and plenty of on-road presence.

Along with their LPG tankers, they also run tipulator and refrigeration units.  One such tipulator unit is the one pictured.  It had to be foolproof, multi-functional (Grain door, bulk tip, metal spreading), fit for purpose and most of all, user friendly.

With NZH supplying and configuring the hydraulic equipment we had to, along with Pirtek Feilding, contend with challenges of ensuring that none of the functions could interfere with any other application.  The unit was built by Fruehauf in Feilding and for all intents and purposes it has been a huge success with the ever friendly staff at Uhlenberg Haulage being very satisfied with the outcome.
