Tuff-Tarper systems are designed for single-axle, cable hoist and hooklift trucks. These systems can cover open-top containers ranging from 8' to 16' in length and are available in semiautomatic, automatic and hydraulic versions. Pioneer calls them "the utility knife of the trucking world" because they're so versatile and user-friendly. The HR1500E is ideal for same-size containers.
The Tuff-Tarper HR1500E is powered by a 12-volt DC, direct-drive, right angle, electric motor driven gearbox that provides steady, quiet, efficient movement. A two-way electrical switch provides for quick covering and uncovering. The roller assembly is mounted on top of a fixed gantry. The HR1500E steel model comes with comes with heavy-duty, unbreakable side-mounted pivot arms made of 1-5/8' steel tubing. Deployment is made easier by heavy duty reverse-wound torsion springs that assist with pivot arm movement. Switching is made easier to prevent injuries and be more user-friendly. This unit has a fixed gantry (63" from top of chassis) and comes with a 9' wide, expandable, heavy-duty mesh tarp.
Notes on Fixed Gantry:
A "fixed" or stationary gantry is adequate for most applications. The difference between the fixed and the adjustable hydraulic gantry is that the adjustable gantry allows you to gently lower the tarp over your load instead of dragging it across, which will significantly reduce damage and wear. All gantries, telescopic or fixed, require 10" of clearance for the roller rest, though a fixed gantry can sometimes be modified for limited clearance.
