CONTINUOUS TRUCK JIG
is a technique suggested for reducing the effective cycle times on ramp
inclines. It involves attaching an endless wire rope between a full
truck at the bottom of the ramp, and an empty truck at the top of the
ramp. Trucks attach to the rope by hydraulic clamps. The rope passes
over fixed pulley sheaves at both ends of the ramp. An empty truck
descends the ramp under power while helping to elevate the full truck.
Net vehicle weights counterbalance each other, and reduce grade effects on the loaded truck.
