Duckbill Ejector an efficient way of moving loads underground

It is designed to carry a load of 6000kg and includes using hydraulically operated pusher plates to eject and retrieve a load in a controlled manner.

The CMP Point of Difference resides in the duckbill pod having an ejector mechanism — a perpendicular pusher plate — as well as a lifting plate secured to the tray for attaching the duckbill pod to a loader.

The drive arrangement can be selectively actuated to drive the pusher plate along the tray, thereby to eject goods or materials from the duckbill pod or draw such goods into the pod.

The multipurpose equipment is available in four pallet or narrow two pallet options, is operator friendly, minimises wastage, and reduces manual handling.

The unique eject and retract functions enable it to push off or retrieve loads and allows pallets to be ejected one at a time. A tapered leading edge assists in retrieving loads.
