Philippi-Hagenbuch Inc. (PHI) released the Push Block for articulated and rigid-frame trucks. PHI engineered the Push Block to integrate with the rear chassis on off-highway trucks ranging from 20 tons to 400 tons. The Push Block provides a stable assembly that transfers rear pushing force directly to the truck’s frame, preventing damage. The optimal positioning of the Push Block allows operators a safe push point to dislodge trucks from areas with poor ground conditions without damaging the truck body or pushing equipment, the company reported. By transferring the pushing and pulling forces through the Push Block to the frame, operations prevent damage, downtime and associated costs without affecting the loading process or payload.
