Bottom Loader Arm (BL-54)

Bottom Loader Arm

Our Bottom Transfer Loading Arm (BL-54) is designed for applications where extended reach is needed if vehicles cannot be accurately spotted for loading. BL-54 bottom loading arms store primary in a horizontal position to either side of the riser pipe depending on the piping layout and pre-existing obstructions. These arms rotate above and below horizontal to reach the connection point on the truck. They require less overhead space than the AF-54 but require more space adjacent to the arms for storage; either hose or pipe can be used in the drop section to reach the connection point.

Available in Right Hand or Left Hand, Up Feed or Down Feed and Horizontal Feed Loading configurations.
