Abstract (en)

A stackable skip of the type comprising a four-walled, open-topped metal container whose front wall (14) is forwardly inclined, the container being adapted to be selectively mounted on a motor vehicle for the transport of materials carried by the skip by being dragged onto the rear of the transport vehicle by means of a hydraulically displaceable open hook carried by the vehicle. The skip is fitted with a closed hook (62) on its inclined front wall for engagement with the open hook on the transport vehicle, the closed hook being mounted displaceably on said inclined front wall (14), so that it can be selectively extended to a position forward of, and above the level of, the top edge of said front wall (14) of the skip. The container includes a base which is formed by a pair of side girders (18a, 18b), coupled together by cross beams (20) and covered by a steel plate (19) forming the skip floor, the side girders (18a, 18b) being arranged to extend substantially over the full length of said skip floor. The side girders (18a, 18b) supporting the skip floor comprise respective lengths of channel iron, disposed so that their respective channels both face laterally outwardly at the sides of the skip base, and wherein the side walls of the skip comprise a plurality of side beams (26) which extend upwardly at an angle to the base, the lower ends of these side beams (26) being welded to the upper surface of the lower leg of the associated side girder (18a, 18b) and the sides of these side beams being welded to the outer edge of the upper leg of the associated side girder (18a, 18b). <IMAGE> <IMAGE> <IMAGE>
