Philippi-Hagenbuch Body Lifting System
August 1, 2011
Philippi-Hagenbuch, Inc. Body Lifting System included in its  HiVol Body designed for a Cat 797B haul truck is a safer alternative to the standard lifting points traditionally built into the sides of off-highway truck bodies. The end result: a simple, safe process that will not weaken body components over time, provides structural benefits, requires minimal maintenance and takes less time end effort during the rigging processes. An end user can place removable ‘Lifting Eyes’ through the floor structure of the body, attach a shackle and lift the body from the interior, thus reducing overhead height clearance required when putting on or removing a box from the truck.  The Lifting Eye is keyed into the floor structure in such a way that similar fatigue as experienced from the side lifting holes would not be present after even a considerable amount of time and multiple uses, thereby allowing this mechanism to be a safe alternative for lifting the body throughout its life.
