When a fleet operator specifies a new vehicle the number one concern is payload. By reducing the overall weight of a vehicle by just a few kilograms it is possible to increase the profitability of every journey that it takes. This is why Aggregate Industries, Cemex, Lafarge and Tarmac all specified Edbro's lightweight CX range of hydraulic cylinders on 100 percent of the rigid tipping vehicles they ordered in 2012.

Danny Broomfield, UK Business Development Manager for Edbro, comments: "The CX series has always been well known in the industry for offering increased payloads to rigid tipping vehicles by combining the ram and the tank units. However, the unanimous approval of the biggest fleets in the UK is probably down to the introduction of the new CX14. This offers a potential weight saving of 230kg over direct competition which makes the specification decision a lot easier.

The CX14 is the lightest 8x4 gear available on the market at just 449kg – including oil. It boasts a saving of up to 258kg against comparable cylinders which is estimated to allow for an additional payload over the chassis lifetime.

While delivering industry leading weight saving is a core philosophy for Edbro, the company never lets this impact on its 'Fit and Forget' promise of utmost reliability. Edbro invests heavily in its R&D, testing and manufacturing facilities to ensure that every cylinder meets the high standards expected of it. Prior to reaching the market the CX14 cylinder had been subjected to arduous test conditions - both in the factory and in real world applications. It's this dedication to quality that has kept Edbro on the forefront of tipping technology and made the CX14 the number one gear for weight conscious hauliers, regardless of fleet size.
