Mobile carrier

From The Great Ball Contraption Wiki
(Redirected from Mobile Carrier)

A great ball contraption mobile carrier, like a dump truck or forklift ascends a ramp before dumping or tipping its load, allowing unloading at a higher level than it started.


  • Would require wide ramps if the vehicle turns at top.
  • Backing down after delivery might be easier.
  • The mobile carrier could follow guide rails or optically follow a line. The slope of the ramp is limited by the carrier's ability to negotiate it, so it might require a significant ramp.[1]
