Hire giant splashes out on more dual view dumpers

A-PLANT has decided to invest in more Wacker Neuson dual view dumpers.

The hire firm said it is helping to improve site ‘safety, sustainability and productivity’ with a £900,000 spend on 20 new 6T and 9T machines.

A-Plant MD Ian Jordan said, “We purchased our first dual view dumper earlier this year and after proving its safety, sustainability and productivity credentials at Sellafield, it was clear to us that the new machines provide considerable safety advantages.

“More construction companies are beginning to introduce dual view dumpers onsite as standard, and we are proud to be able to offer our customers this new product, which has enhanced safety and comfort in addition to increased operating efficiencies and improved productivity.”

Wacker Neuson’s latest models feature a swivel skip dumper, described as setting ‘new standards in terms of operator and construction site safety, flexibility and cost effectiveness’.

Featuring an enclosed safety cab and a rotating driving console, drivers can remain in the cab during loading (subject to on-site risk assessments), and are able to face the direction of travel, whether going backwards or forwards. Other features include a rear-view camera installed as standard and highlighted steps with signal colour.
