Bin lid lifting kit powered by cordless drill

In early 2022 our team designed a bin lift system that can be driven using a cordless drill. Our customer’s specification was that there is no power available on site, so thinking laterally our team designed a system that can be driven using a cordless drill.

We carried out several tests and trials to improve the operation and to prove that it is a viable system. The lifting kit is able to be operated using one hand holding the drill, with no kickback.

With the bin lid kit now successfully operating, we have been commissioned to supply new kits for our customer’s fleet of 23 vehicles.

You can view a video of one of numerous tests with the cordless drill. On the right-hand side of the lid you'll spot the hydraulic cylinder in action. View video on our Facebook page.
