Columbia Industries, Hillsboro, Oregon, has recently released its next-generation Horizon 50/65 T tipper. Originally introduced to the solid waste and recycling industries in the 1960s, the company says tippers have found market acceptance throughout the world.

The new Horizon 50/65 T tipper is designed with features such as automated leveling, digital joystick controls, greater accessibility for maintenance, expandable electronic monitoring, a new spill-through chute and a single platform design that will accommodate 50-ton or 65-ton loads.

Columbia says the tipper will be manufactured for less cost than former designs, allowing the company to introduce a substantial upgrade at a lower price. Additionally, Columbia says its manufacturing and assembly facility in Hillsboro is an American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) qualified facility.

The company has released three new products over the past year: a Sprinter rig walking system, remote power steering and the Horizon 50/65 T landfill tipper.

Ken Van Raden, chairman and company co-founder, will be at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the tipper Nov. 13, 2017, at 9 a.m. He will cut the ribbon to celebrate the release of the Horizon 50/65 T tipper.

Van Raden, his brother Fred and business partner Ken Brattlie founded Columbia in 1976.
