GAP confirms dual view dumper investment

GLASGOW-headquartered GAP Hire Solutions has invested almost £3 million in dual view dumpers from Wacker Neuson.

The firm recently took delivery of its first 6t model. Dual view allows operators to change the seat position through a 180-degree rotation of the operating and seat console, providing a view of the direction of travel during transport, loading and tipping.

In total, GAP explained it is buying 60 dual view dumpers, equally spread between 6t and 9t swivel skip models.

Head of procurement Ken Stewart said, “The dual view dumper is an innovative product offering enhanced safety and comfort for the operator, in addition to increased operating efficiencies and improved productivity. Our range of Wacker Neuson cabbed dumpers have been particularly well received and we see the dual view dumper as a logical extension in dumper design and development.

“It is encouraging that Wacker Neuson involved Tier 1 contractors as part of the design process and it is evident their input has been incorporated into the final design.”
