Rear Ejection Dumping

Hagenbuch’s Rear Eject Bodies are made for underground hauling and where overhead barriers inhibit traditional dumping. The Rear Eject series eliminates the need to raise the body of the truck when in the presence of overhead barriers by instead enabling dumping while in motion. Without moving or raising the truck bed, an ejector blade pushes material toward the rear of the truck, while the tailgate lowers down and material is completely ejected. The unique sweeping action of the blade virtually eliminates all material.
