Wacker Neuson dumper deployed to Sellafield

HIRE giant A-Plant has deployed its first six-tonne Dual View dumper from Wacker Neuson to Sellafield.

The swivel skip dumper has been designed to improve visibility and eliminate blind spots. Features include a fully enclosed safety cab and a rotating driving console. Drivers can face the direction of travel whether going backwards or forwards.

A rear-view camera has also been installed as standard, while highlighted steps with signal colour are said to allow for a safe ascent to the driver’s station. The machines went into production earlier this year.

Dave Harris, business development director for A-Plant said, “A-Plant is at the forefront of equipment hire in the UK and we invest millions of pounds in new products each year to ensure we are able to offer customers the most reliable, safest and environmentally friendly range of equipment in the industry. Our latest purchase was showcased during the company’s Innovation Week 2018 and after being impressed by the dumper’s safety, sustainability and productivity credentials, we are excited to be able to deploy our first model to Sellafield this month.”
