off topic - but how well does the tip work with a hand pump? a couple of folks i know went for the battery option but they  end up letting them sit for a while especially over then forget to charge the battery and have to handball everything out

It’s a workout... Definitely works but is much harder than you’d think!

I’m looking for a 8’x5’ tipper, havent really decided on a brand as such, but i’m contemplating going for the manual hydraulic setup then fitting a flowfit electric kit to run along side of it. Will just fit a switchable spool valve for in the event of the electric side going flat or giving issues away from home.

hmm.....could be handy to have a an extra battery in case the van needs a jump...
 

The batteries on your tip trailers aren’t designed for jump starting other things.

The batteries on a tip trailer are a deep cycle, slow and steady release to provide constant power for a long period, hence to tip your ram top to bottom, and best replenished using a trickle charge.

A car battery is designed to give a big release of power in a short time, hence the initial whapp to turn your engine over till it fires, then the alternator tops it back up again at a fairly quick rate.

lived on a canal boat for a while - you can jump start stuff with a deep cycle battery, it isnt designed for it but wont kill them  - Infact the leisure batterys ran the starter for the boat engine - big old lump of a twin pot.  I've had to jump my van twice the last decade, im basically trying to justify laziness. because who wants a work out at the end of a day at the tip site? other wise id just keep hand balling :D
