A-Ward container tilters are designed to provide companies with a smart way to load and unload shipping containers. In 2006, A-Ward says they created the world's first container tipper, which was met with overwhelming popularity. This fashioned a completely new loading method, moving away from conventional, and somewhat inefficient horizontal loading methods. Since its creation, A-Ward has sold over 400 tilters worldwide, including over 120 in the U.S. and over 100 across the UK and Europe.

environmentally conscious material handling organizations around the world.
The 90 degree Container Tilter is designed to allow containers to be removed from trailers and tilted from horizontal to a 90 degree angle, safely and from a distance. With a remote operator control unit, the tilting operation can be done with no chains or off-centre loads, and feathering control levers aid with fast container alignment. These units are self contained, with a 13-hp gas engine, a 3,000-psi hydraulic pump and oil reservoir, and an optional battery starter.
The Re-bar Shear is designed for demolition contractors, concrete recyclers, and scrap processors for cutting tangled re-bar. It has a speed of 30-36 cuts per minute, and features low-cost hydraulics, with a bucket linkage design that is inexpensive to purchase, install, and maintain. Units utilize thick, high-tensile jaw material, and extra jaw stiffeners ensure zero jaw flex for ultra-tight blade tolerance. Opposing shear faces are incorporated to balance the sequential cutting cycle, and units create dense processed scrap from low-value waste material. A 40-ton (88,000-pound) excavator can process six to eight tons per hour of tangled re-bar, reducing it to pieces with an average size of one foot.
The 90 degree Container Tilter from New Zealand manufacturer A-Ward, is designed to allow containers to be removed from trailers and tilted from horizontal to a 90 degree angle, safely from a distance. At a full 90 degree tilt, the container can be filled with up to 30 tons of product, and for extra safety, all four cylinders are fitted with pressure control safety-lock valves in case of hydraulic failure. Both front and rear container locks have two locking points on each side.
The ACT series self-contained container tilting unit with back in, drive out capability is designed as a safer, simple, more efficient solution for loading various forms of scrap and bulk products into containers for export. The container and trailer chassis are backed into the unit and the container is locked at eight points of engagement onto the tilter’s lifting arms. The doors are opened, and the tilter hydraulically raises the container from 0 to 90 degrees for easy loading with a loader, material handler, or conveyer. Once loaded, the doors are closed and held shut by specially designed hydraulic door closers, and the container is lowered to a safe height so the doors can be latched. The container is then lowered back onto the trailer chassis, the locks are disengaged, and the container is taken to port.
The A-Ward hydraulic wood shear is designed for processing waste timber, logs and stumps down to manageable sizes for transport or further processing in grinders. Cycling is 12-14 times per minute and the top jaw on these units is convex, while the lower jaw has concaved serrating gripping teeth to help wood into the throat area for maximum shearing force.
In an effort to find a better solution for loading various forms of scrap and bulk products into containers for export, New Zealand based A-Ward Attachments Ltd has developed the ACT series (patents pending) self-contained container tilting unit with back in, drive out capability.
