Container Handler

PHIL's patented Big Bertha Shipping Container Handler is specifically designed to haul and top dump shipping containers such as solid waste from a rail head to the landfill working face.

Big Bertha's unique container handler cradle will handle nearly any intermodal container varying from 5' - 12' in height; 8' 6" in width; and 20' - 40' in length, allowing a larger number of containers to be hauled/dumped per cycle and more material moved in each container handling operation.


Big Bertha employs a unique dumping mechanism that provides structural support to allow container rotation of 150° while maintaining the integrity of the unit.


Can be used as a mobile container hauler and dumping unit or a semi-stationery dumping unit (especially economical for operations encountering large volumes of waste and long haul distances).
