Mule Tipper Inserts transform pick-ups
The Mule Tipper Insert is a simple solution for anyone wanting to turn their pick-up into a tipper, without any bodywork changes or going to the expense of a chassis cab-based conversion. It’s the brainchild of three friends with specialist backgrounds in Formula One, metal structural construction and hydraulics who decided to create Mule Tipper Inserts after seeing a similar design in the USA for full-size pick-ups. They designed a version that fits the traditional one tonne Japanese pick-up found throughout Europe.
Designed to make unloading for operators in the building, agricultural, forestry and local council sectors the Inserts can easily be re-fitted onto a new vehicle when the time comes and prices start at £2,695 (excl VAT). Installation requires removing the tailgate and then the Mule is simply dropped into the load area. It’s secured through to the chassis and the power cable is wired directly to the vehicles main battery. A master cut-off switch is positioned inside the cab and operation of the tipper is via a wireless controller.
The whole kit and caboodle weighs in at 128kg, which leaves a more than respectable payload of in excess of 850kg. The basic Mule can be customised thanks to a selection of optional extras which include headboards, ladder racks and greedy boards to extend the height of the side walls.
