The influx of new plant into our hire fleet continues with the arrival of two new Thwaites Alldrive 3 Tonne Front Tip Dumpers. These follow hot on the heels of the other new acquisitions of a Volvo EC55 5 tonne excavator and four Thwaites Alldrive 2 Tonne Dumpers.
The Thwaites Alldrive 3 Tonne Front Tip Dumper has been updated since we last bought dumpers of this size. Ever conscious of issues relating to site access, Thwaites have reduced the overall width of this dumper to just 1650mm. To do this they have altered the shape of the skip to one that is deeper than the previous design.
Height restriction problems have also been addressed thanks to the introduction of a folding ROPS bar. This now makes the highest point the top of the seat, when the ROPS bar is folded down.
An improvement has also been made with security with the introduction of an isolator key to make the Alldrive 3 Tonne harder to steal.
