GAP Group reports ‘significant’ demand for Dual View dumpers

GAP Group has described its investment in 6t and 9t swivel Dual View dumpers as ‘rapidly increasing’ to help satisfy high utilisation levels from a range of industrial sectors.

The hire specialist said customer demand has been ‘significant’ since the initial investment in the product at the start of 2019.

Ken Stewart, GAP’s head of procurement explained, “We placed a forecast order with Wacker Neuson last year to secure production capacity as being a new innovative product, we expected interest and subsequent demand to be high. This product offers significant productivity and safety-related benefits and to date has been well received by both depots and customers.”

The rotating driving console on the swivel skip site dumper allows operators to face the direction of travel whether going backwards or forwards.

Ken added, “No other manufacturer can offer this product which is testimony to the forward vision of the design and engineering teams at Wacker Neuson, Linz, Austria where the machines are manufactured. We are now experiencing a steady shift in demand from cabbed to dual view dumpers.”
