Quebec’s ElcarGo Fabrication has developed an electrically powered dump-body tarp system. The Multi Flip operates — and quickly — from front to back with aluminum arms on each side of the body, thus opening up the entire dump box and allowing conventional loading from either side or from behind.

The canvas, overlapping at least 30 cm on each side, also creates optimal protection against the elements. There’s a claimed fuel-economy benefit up to 14.93%, the company says, over a tarpless dump.
